Ripon's four-game loss to Escalon Thursday proved to have big playoff ramifications. "This will likely drop us from a top-two (seed) to fourth," Ripon coach Larry Keethe said after Thursday's contest. His hunch was right.

Ripon football head coach Chris Johnson said, "He's kind of a class clown, but a real nice kid." On Friday nights, that smile fades into a scowl. Mr. Happy Go Lucky is suddenly temperamental and tenacious. The Indians, who are 4-1 going into their Trans Valley League opener at ...
