The Sierra High boys soccer team is back on top of the Valley Oak League standings, but not before host Weston Ranch put a scare into the Timberwolves Monday.
RIPON - The Knights methodically took care of business Thursday against visiting Delhi.
Weston Ranch's volleyball team made things easier on itself this time around.
It didn't matter that the Delhi Hawks had three times as many shots on goal as Ripon Christian did heading into the half on Thursday afternoon.
At the end, allof the attention was on the final doubles match that decided whether it would be host Sonora or East Union that walked away with a tennis victory.
It wasn't about revenge.
And Ripon High takes the lead.
Sonora is one of those bubble teams that worry the Valley Oak League's contenders.
The East Union High girls golf team stayed in a three-way tie atop the Valley Oak League standings by beating Sierra Wednesday at the Manteca Park Golf Course.
In need of a confidence boost, Ripon High's volleyball team got just that in Wednesday's sweep of Hughson on the road.
It had been nearly five years since Manteca High's volleyball team had beaten intra-city rival Sierra.
The Ripon Christian boys soccer team posted a much-needed Southern League win over Turlock Christian on Tuesday.
The Weston Ranch High girls tennis team won its 20th straight match Tuesday, beating Oakdale in the battle for the top spot in the Valley Oak League, 6-3.
Five-game matches are nothing new to Weston Ranch this year.
