Sonora grapplers win 4 of 5 duals

The Sonora Wildcats wrestling team won four of five dual meet matches at the Healdsburg Tournament on Friday and Saturday to earn second place.

Sonora went a perfect 3-0 in its bracket, submitting San Ramon Valley 42-37, Petaluma 54-16 and Rodriguez 68-3.

The Wildcats advanced to the semifinals where they beat Mission San Jose 51-24 to lock a spot in the championship match.

“We feel like we are on schedule and developing into a strong team,” said Sonora head coach Jon Abernathy. “With some improvement and experience, we might give some of the elite teams a good match. We are focusing on working hard as a team and earning it every time we take the mat.”


S’ville claims Hilmar crown

The Summerville Bears boys’ basketball team won the Hilmar Tournament Championship, but not the way it wanted.

On Thursday, Summerville opened the tourney using a strong second quarter surge to beat Los Banos 70-61.

“It was up and down,” said Bears head coach Ben Watson. “We were ahead by 12 at the half, but we came out a little flat and got outscored in the third. We kind of pushed away from the free throw line in the fourth. It was close.”


Preps Roundup: Bullfrogs 0-2 at Union Mine D4 Challenge

Despite missing two of their top senior shooters and playing with only seven hoopsters, the Bret Harte Bullfrogs boys’ basketball team hanged around at the Union Mine Tournament.

It its first game, Bret Harte lost to host Union Mine 57-51 on Saturday. 

Starting guards Brandon Kelly and Will Whited both did not make the trip. Kelly was busy taking the SATs and Whited attended a family event.

“We were missing some guys,” said Bullfrogs head coach Jeff Eltringham. “So a lot of guys that didn’t get a lot of minutes had to step up. I’m thinking that will get us up in scoring. We got a lot of guys with little game experience, so that’s why we’re struggling. But they got those jitters out of the way this weekend.”

“That was a really good game for her,” said Summerville head coach Dave Woods.


Cold weather helps hunters bag waterfowl

By LEN ACKERMAN

For The Union Democrat 

Last week’s cold weather blast brought new waterfowl into the central valley and improved shooting results in private clubs and State and Federal Wildlife areas.

During cold temperatures, ducks and geese tend to be on the move in search of food. This week, the weather became a bit more mild and waterfowl will spend more time resting in closed zones and feeding more at night. Early morning shoots are usually best during mild weather.

Results from public refuges dropped somewhat last weekend in the Los Banos Complex with North Freitas Unit the best at 2.48 birds per hunter; San Luis was at 2.06; Los Banos had 1.65 and Gadwall Unit was at 1.44.

Local fishing guide Danny Layne puts that on the back burner to get in some duck hunting on Dec. 7. He hunted at the Hollister Club near Gustine with Dr. Bill Nakaki and they had a good shoot, bagging two limits of mixed species of ducks.

S’ville girls edged by Los Banos at Hilmar

The Summerville Bears girls suffered a narrow 55-51 defeat to Los Banos on Thursday in the first round of the Hilmar Basketball Tournament.

The game was close throughout with both teams enjoying the lead.

It was tied at 13 after one period. Los Banos led 24-23 at halftime but the Bears rallied to take a 36-33 lead heading into the final eight minutes.

“We played a lot better than we had been playing,” said Bears head coach Dave Woods. “We led off and on throughout the game. We started making some shots tonight and I hope we continue that.”
