archive_import /

Tioga High School made a fourth-quarter run at Stockton Christian on Thursday night before absorbing a 56-44 Mountain Valley League girls' basketball loss at Tenaya School in Groveland.

The Timberwolves (1-11, 1-5 MVL) entered the fourth quarter trailing 51-29 but closed to within eight points with a couple of minutes remaining before Stockton stabilized and headed down Priest Grade with a victory.

Tioga couldn't get its shots to fall in the first three quarters.

"Stockton shot well, and we didn't," Tioga coach Jim McClure said. "That's the story of our season, right there."

Four freshmen Sara Meehan, Kim Holt, Janessa Owens and Betsy King and a sophomore Amber Brooks sparked the T-Wolves' rally. Holt and Brooks both scored nine points, as did Vanessa Gilliam.

Next up is a non-league home game Monday at 5 p.m. against Big Valley Christian.

Frosh-Soph Tioga (1-11, 0-4) lost a 29-28 squeaker.

Sophs, frosh win

At Turlock, Sonora's sophomore and freshman girls' teams beat Pitman in Valley Oak League games. There was no varsity contest because Pitman is a first-year school with no upperclassmen.

The sophs (14-6, 6-2 VOL) won 50-44 behind 15 points by Danein Wells, 12 by Haley McColloch, and 10 by Maggi Starkweather.

The frosh (8-9, 3-5) won 33-32 when Amanda McColloch sank two free throws with 11 seconds left and Rikki Green made a steal a few seconds later. McColloch finished with 10 points, four rebounds, and three steals; Vanessa Crook with five points, 10 rebounds, and four steals; Sam Duke with six points and 10 rebounds; and Erica Chabot and Janelle Young with four points apiece.
