Preps Roundup: Wildcat volleyers beat Frogs in 3 games

With a 3-0 (25-14, 25-6, 25-13) win against Bret Harte on Monday at Bud Castle Gym, the Sonora Wildcats volleyball team has already defeated every team in the Mother Lode League.

Sonora, who is in its first year in the MLL, has won every conference match in three sets and has ripped off six straight league wins.

Shannon Friend smacked 10 kills and freshman Riley Patterson smashed nine. Angela Gardella pounded seven and Savannah Lawrence added five. The Wildcats totaled 34 kills as a team.

Together everyone achieves more.

No group of football players put that team-first concept on better display than the Summerville Bears did on Friday at Sonora High’s Dunlavy Field.

Five different Summerville Bears found the end zone and the defense forced five turnovers to help lift the team to a 41-0 win over Bret Harte.

“If it weren’t for the early turnovers, it could have been a different game,” said Summerville head coach Ben Watson. “They were moving the ball down the field, our defense was kind of bending, but when we needed to come up with a key third down stop or a key fourth down stop, we were able to do that. But their turnovers helped us out. It really led to us getting out to that big lead.”

Sonora beats Calaveras, rolls to 5th straight victory

Sonora offered Calaveras a chance to get off to a good start Friday night, but after a couple of fumbles didn’t go the Redskins way, the Wildcats returned to their efficient ways, then pulled away for a 43-0 victory at Frank Meyer Field in San Andreas. 

“We started out kind of slow and sloppy,” said Wildcat head coach Bryan Craig. “We had some critical penalties that stopped drives. We get to the 1 yard line and we don’t score. We put the ball on the ground five times, we got it back, but that’s not like us. So it took us a little while to get our stuff together but we did. And we became very efficient after that.”

Carter Denton made two interceptions, one he returned for a touchdown, to lead another dominating Wildcat defensive performance and five different players hit paydirt to lead Sonora to its fifth straight victory and second consecutive shutout win over a Mother Lode League foe.

“We came out and made a statement,” Denton said. “They beat us last year (13-7), the pressure was on us to win and we certainly came through. We played really hard tonight.”

Soccer Cats edge Mustangs

The Sonora Wildcats boys’ soccer team received three goals from three different players in its 3-2 win over Argonaut on Thursday in a Mother Lode League match at Dunlavy Field.

In the first half, Nate Patterson delivered a cross into the box and junior Augustin Romero buried the game’s first strike.

“Gus got on the other end of it,” said Widcats head coach Lloyd Longeway, “and drove it into the net.”

Sonora netters cruise vs. Argo

Behind 38 kills and 12 service aces, the Sonora Wildcats volleyball team pounded Argonaut 3-0 (25-12, 25-8, 25-10) to win its fifth straight Mother Lode League match on Thursday at Bud Castle Gym.

Freshman outside hitter Riley Patterson fired 12 kills in the onslaught and Savannah Lawrence, Kristin Chormicle and Maddison Stevens each added five.

“You could see that Argonaut is a young team and having a rebuilding year,” said Wildcats head coach Kim Evans. “We are fortunate enough to have seven seniors and two juniors that have a lot of on-court experience.”

The Sonora Wildcats boys water polo team got off to a quick start and never looked back.

Sonora grabbed a four-goal advantage after the opening quarter and coasted to a 14-8 win over Kimball on Tuesday in a Valley Oak League match at Sonora Sports and Fitness.

“We went up 6-2 at the end of the first quarter,” said Wildcats head coach Matt Personius. “We substituted freely from the second quarter on. Everybody played. The game was never in question for us. Our strength players are stronger than their players. We we’re better all-around. I was happy with the game, and it showed us some things that we need to keep working on defensively. It was a good start for us.”

Volley Wildcats sweep Linden

Shannon Friend hammered 13 kills on 29 of 31 hitting and Bella Bergamaschi served 22 for 23 with two aces to lead the Sonora Wildcat volleyball team over Linden 3-0 (25-10, 25-17, 25-14) in a Mother Lode League clash on Tuesday at Bud Castle Gym.

Bergamaschi also added 14 assists and made 11 digs and freshman Riley Patterson added 10 kills for Sonora which has won four straight to open the MLL.

“We have never seen Linden play before but we knew they were going to be competitive coming into the match 7-1,” said Wildcat head coach Kim Evans. “They hung with us for about the first nine points until we started to figure some things out. We had some good service runs and that helped us get a lead in each set. Linden played some very good defense which turned into some really good rallies. All of our girls played well tonight.”
