CERES —  In what was a complete team effort, the Sierra Timberwolves made it a season sweep of the Ceres Bulldogs, winning their Wednesday Valley Oak League battle 6-4 to shake the league’s foundation up even further.

Gabby Hawkins worked her magic again for the Timberwolves (5-4 VOL, 11-8 overall), striking out 11 while scattering four hits in the win. Hawkins’ control was customarily perfect, surrendering just one free-pass on the afternoon.

Shakira Lewis was Sierra’s leading hitter, going 3 for 4 with a triple in the win and driving in three runs. Sommer Wilson left the yard for the second consecutive game, finishing 1 for 4 with a timely homer after just being called up from the sophomore team.

“It was a great overall effort from everybody on the team,” Sierra head coach Nick Olmo said. “We got eight total hits as a team, and everybody did their job offensively and defensively. We had quality production all the way around.

“It was nice to see us play good, solid ball.”

Sierra will only get to enjoy the win for a brief moment, with the VOL leading Oakdale Mustangs rolling out the welcome mats for the Timberwolves at 4 p.m.

Sierra 9, Ceres 1
CERES – The Bulldogs had no answer for Sierra, falling behind early and never recovering in their VOL loss Wednesday.

Cece Nevarez was Sierra’s starting pitcher, going three innings and striking out four before giving way to Gabby Olmo who closed out the contest by striking out five over the final two innings of play.

Sierra (8-1, 15-1) will have to avenge its only loss of the season when they travel to Oakdale to take on the Mustangs at 4 p.m.

Ceres 4, Sierra 1
CERES – The Timberwolves were only able to earn a single victory Wednesday in their VOL matchup with the Ceres Bulldogs.

Sierra’s No. 2 doubles team of Greg Blockinger and John Hewitt bounced back from a tough 6-7 loss in their first set with a pair of 6-3 wins to close out the match and pull in Sierra’s only point.

The Timberwolves will be back on the court today when they meet up with the Manteca Buffaloes to continue VOL play.
