If Friday night's 8th grade boys Manteca Unified Student Trust championship basketball game between Komure and Great Valley - two Weston Ranch High feeder schools - was any indication, the future of Cougars basketball is in good hands.
Mikayala Hasal hit two 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 14 points Friday night at Manteca High where the Lincoln 8th grade girls basketball team topped Mossdale, 38-29, to claim the Manteca Unified Student Trust basketball championship.
Many anglers are home waiting for the weather to get a little better before venturing out. I've learned through the years that the best fishing will come and go if you wait until it's comfortable for you. This week I was able to sneak out and was pleasantly surprised at the results. Not really expecting to catch much, I was immediately struck while using a reaction bait. Continuing down the bank, I decided to go ...
APTOS – Cortez Martial Arts of Manteca represented the home town well at the Rumble in the Redwoods martial arts tournament in Aptos last Saturday.
One of the hardest character traits for young people to develop is patience. The task comes doubly difficult for standout high school athletes looking to move on to the next level.

The 2008 hunting season is coming to a close. My son, Bill, and I had an outstanding year.

There have already been a few double-digit fish caught locally which usually is a sign that the wide-open bite is just ...
Leaning over the putter given to me that goes with the bag full of other clubs I didn't pay for and no one wanted, I took a breath.
Fresno State junior Paul Hogan, a 2005 Ripon High graduate and Manteca native, is a walking, talking testament to persistence.
I'm asked all the time whether I fish with live or artificial bait. I primarily fish with artificial baits, mainly because most tournaments outlaw the use of live bait. Although fishing with live bait is often looked down upon by competitive anglers, it does have its distinct advantages. I can remember one family vacation up at Lake Shasta where I couldn't catch anything over a pound on artificial baits. Desperate, I went to the local ...
I fished with my Dad Saturday, even though we were separated by two states and a foreign country. The experience was exactly the second time it was cool to have a cell phone while fishing. The first was a few years back when our engine died, and we were drifting helplessly toward those hard rock things that tend to hurt boat hulls.
Brian Rohles, a 2005 Manteca High graduate, has been named to the seventh National Association of Interscholastic Athletics All-American football team, earning honorable mention.
