Bear girls headed to postseason

The Union Democrat Sports Department

The Summerville Bear girls' basketball team is headed to postseason after holding off Amador 34-32on Tuesdaynight in Sutter Creek.

Bear girls and postseason have not been in the same sentence for at least 10 years.

"There's not a whole lot of history of the Summerville girls making playoffs," said Bears head coach Dave Woods, "so it's pretty special for us."

The Bears (8-19, 4-11 Mother Lode League) earned the MLL's number four seed. They finished tied with Linden but win the tiebreaker after beating the Lions two out of three games.

"Our record could be a lot better, we've lost a lot of close games that didn't go our way," Woods said. "I feel like we're better than our record."

The Bears and Buffaloes were tied 11-11 at halftime and Amador led 21-20 heading into the fourth period.

"It was a back-and-forth physical game," Woods siad. "The referees really let us play. There weren't a lot of fouls called."

Cassidy Weathers scored a Bears-high nine points. Bobbi Devoto added eight points, Sarah Boyer five and Raquel Relva and Catie Egger each tallied four points. Egger grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds while Devoto hauled in eight, Weathers six and Relva and Boyer each had five.

Summerville will find out today where it will be seeded in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV Championships and who it will play.
