SONORA - Sierra has reason to celebrate. More like reasons.

And with the win comes the decorated program's 10th conference title in 14 varsity seasons. Sierra's last title came in 2006, which was shared with Sonora. "There's so much to be proud of with this game," Sierra coach Manuel ...

HUGHSON – Copperfield? Blaine? Maybe Penn? Perhaps Teller? Somebody check the Ripon High dugout for ringers. Something magical is happening.

A supremely talented class of eight Sierra High seniors celebrated their final regular season game on the home pitch Thursday evening at Daniel Teicheira Memorial Stadium, but their opponent, the Oakdale Mustangs, were dead-set on spoiling the party.

Oakdale took advantage of the opportunity to escape with a 4-1 victory Thursday and pad its first-place lead to three games with four to go. The Mustangs (10-0, 21-2 overall), ranked fifth in Northern California by NorCalPreps.com, are another win ...
