Spring roundup: Softball Cats blanked


The Sonora High School softball team suffered an 11-0 runs-rule-shortened loss to Hughson at Vikki Wagoner Field yesterday.

Hughson put the game away with bases-loaded triples in the fifth and sixth innings, allowing the Huskies to score nine runs over the final two frames.

Jenna Diede's two-hit day led Sonora (0-3), but the Wildcats were blanked despite getting six hits.

"We need to be more disciplined about swinging at pitches in the strike zone," Sonora coach Nick Parry said.

Sonora visits Bret Harte in Angels Camp on Tuesday.

Sophomores The Wildkittens (2-1) beat Hughson 2-1 yesterday behind the two-hit pitching and 3-for-3 hitting of Holly Barton. She struck out eight, hit a pair of doubles and drove in four runs. Also hitting well for Sonora were Kassie Minners (2B, 2 RBI) and Haley McColloch (2B, 2R). Maggi Starkweather at first base and McColloch behind the plate led the defense.

The Wildcats (3-1) easily beat Calaveras 210-271 at La Contenta in Valley Springs behind a round of four-over-par 39 by Loren Ksiazek.

Freshman Darr Snedeger debuted with a 40 for Sonora, while Kyle Richards shot 43 and Andrew Silva and Brandon Schweitz both came in at 44 Silva with two out-of-bounds shots on one hole.

Chris Scott shot a one-under-par 34, which other than him has its weakest team in years.

Tioga golf

The Timberwolves were rained out of yesterday's scheduled match against Orestimba at Diablo Grande outside Patterson, and now are 0-2 against the weather as they were hailed out of Tuesday's match against LeGrand after two holes at Pine Mountain Lake in Groveland.

Tioga will try again Tuesday at Mariposa.
