Seventy years ago, on September 5, 1940, football  practice at the local high school has gotten right into the thick of the sporting scene in Manteca again as Coach Larry Siemering and his assistant sarge Stan Hawkins are hard at work rounding the boys into shape for the coming season. Calesthentics and fundamental drills prevail. Rico Bianchi, former star Buffalo back and linemen, and last year’s standout blocking back for the University of San Francisco, has been helping the local mentors in their task of lining out the aspirants.

40 years ago: September 4, 1970 - With the desire and enthusiasm of three football teams just wanting badly to win, the East Union High gridiron program got off the ground this week with the frosh, frosh-soph and varsity teams beginning workouts for the opening games of the 1970 campaign. Head coach Tom Nolen, now in his second season as head man of the Lancers, hopes to make the one change this year that will count more than any other, and that is to win. Heading the list of returning lettermen are Marty and Mike Buck, the East Union brother combo trying to patch the back field gap left by the grads. Marty is at quarterback, while 140-pound Mike is currently toiling at half.

30 years ago: September 5, 1980 - While preparing his team for the upcoming football season, East Union High coach Vern Gebhardt anticipated the luxury of having a quarterback position loaded with depth. That luxury, however, was dealt a serious blow last Thursday when senior Billy Emperador--figured to be the starting signal caller--broke his left wrist during a scrimmage with Lincoln High at Guss Schmiedt Field.

After two weeks of contact drills and a full-scale scrimmage against Lodi High, Manteca High football coach Walker Vick has concluded that his club’s own worst enemy might be itself. “When we weren’t stopping ourselves with a penalty, a fumble or an interception, we moved the ball pretty well,” Vick said last Friday, referring to the previous day’s workout with the Flames at Lodi’s Grape Bowl.

Some diligent off-season work by several returnees, combined with the arrival of a few talented newcomers, enable Manteca High tennis coach Sharyl Burgeson to look optimistically at the 1980 season, which begins Tuesday when the Lady Buffs travel to Tracy High.

20 years ago: September 1, 1990 - Manteca High’s tennis team swept to its second straight pre-season win in a lopsided 5-0 victory over Stagg High in Stockton on Friday. The Lady Buffs’ No.1 player, Amy Noyes, won three matches by identical 6-0 scores. Other singles winners were Sue Nunes and Michelle Stoughton. Doubles winners were the duos of Jamie Prokop-Delores Sadorra and Christine Stoughton-Jennifer Johnson.

The East Union High cross-country teams turned in solid early-season showings Wednesday by placing in the top three at the Edison Inviational. The boys placed third among the 15 schools participating. Sal Duarte’s second place at 16:30 led the Lancers. The Lady Lancers placed second, paced by freshman Alicia Lyon, a fourth place finisher at 22:28.

Manteca High’s volleyball team gave itself plenty  of chances to fold against Downey High Thursday evening, but pulled away in the third game to take an 8-15, 15-1, 16-14, 15-8 win against the Lady Knights. Cateena Gleaves and Stephanie Miller were outstanding players for MHS.

Beyer High stunned defending Valley Oak League co-champion East Union High 24-7 in the football opener for both teams last night at Modesto Junior College. Coach Jim Brown’s Lancers fumbled four times, losing one, and were penalized for 75  yards in the game. EU managed just 137 yards of total offense, with the lone Lancer score coming on a 10-yard TD pass from Armando Avina to Matt Atilano just before the half. Avina kicked the extra point.

Manteca High piled up 360 rushing yards in the first half alone and scored on their first five possessions on the way to a 32-7 steamrolling of Modesto High in season-opening football at Guss Schmiedt Field last night.

Coach Bob Lee’s Buffs gained 479  yards of total offense in the game. Rick Asbell and Mike Garcia tallied the other touchdowns for the winners and John Rhodes kicked two extra points.

10 years ago: September 9, 2000 - The Manteca High football team executed its game plan to perfection on both offense and defense to walk off the field Friday night with a 22-6 win over the visiting Ceres High eleven. The Buffaloes dominated both the offense and the defense.  So dominate were the locals that Ceres did not throw a pass in the second half. Buff scoring was led by Carlos Martinez, who had TD runs of nine and one yard. Matt Greenlee added a third score and Dan Jandro kicked a 15-yard field goal.

Freshman Daniel Teicheira was a key player Friday night as the Sierra High varsity football team blasted past Modesto High 50-14. Teicheira ran for 178 yards on 11 carries and scored a touchdown in the Timberwolf win. The locals ran for 397 yards on only 50 carries in the game. Josh Montgomery contributed 137 of that rushing yardage. Montgomery scored four TD’s for SHS, while Ryan Teicheira tallied another. Quarterback Joel Valenzuela also made a T’wolf touchdown.  

Josh Halla led the way as the East Union High gridders beat a good Beyer High team Friday night by a score of 17-9. Halla had a touchdown and ran for 139 yards as Coach Doug McCreath picked up his first win over the Patriots. Clayton Cooke drilled a 27-yard field goal for the first EU points.
