The Manteca High sophomore softball team won its fifth straight Valley Oak League contest Wednesday, a 7-4 road win over Sierra.

Danielle Deerinck tossed a complete game, striking out a pair, while Savanna Reed hit an RBI double and scored three runs.

Mia Ramirez knocked in two on three hits, and Tessa Solario was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

Tara Dadasovich and Dallas Mould knocked in one each.

Manteca hosts Oakdale Friday, while the T’Wolves welcome Sonora.

Sierra 13, Enochs 4
Sierra broke the contest open with four each in the fourth and fifth.

Victoria Schneider allowed four hits and struck out five.

Briane Lenoci was 3 for 4 with two RBIs, and Shakira Lewis (2 for 4) scored a pair.

Raquel Valdez was 2 for 3.

Sierra improved to 8-1-1.

East Union 5, West 2
With Amanda Faulkner’s sudden departure to Oregon, the Lancers had to rally around Haleigh Castner in the circle, and that’s exactly what they did.

Castner was phenomenal in tossing a complete-game, four-hitter with four K’s and no walks allowed.

West, a formidable opponent, scored just one earned run.

“Haleigh battled,” EU head coach Ron Kackley said. “This is what a team is, when one falls, the others have to pick up their games.”

Stephanie Booke was 2 for 3 with four RBIs, and Ashley Duenas went 2 for 3 with another run knocked in.

The Lancers (3-0 VOL, 13-0) take on Tracy this afternoon.

Sierra 1, Oakdale 0 (Tuesday)
Kaitlyn Carbiener scored in the 75th minute of a close one to give the T’Wolves (5-0 VOL, 11-1) the victory.

Sierra hosts Sonora this afternoon.

At Sierra High, the host school’s boys and girls squads each improved to 6-0 on the season.

The boys, who haven’t lost a league dual meet since 2006, were led by Grant Widmer’s wins in the 110 and 300 hurdles, high jump and long jump. Ricky Moris won the 800 and mile.

Nico Valencia was in on three victories against Manteca, which didn’t have any winners against Sierra.

Multiple-event winners for the Sierra girls were: Laney Ribota (both hurdles, relays), Vanessa Pubill (100, relays), Ariel Jones (long jump, triple jump), Kayla Erion (200, 400, 4x400) and Francis Scherry (800, 3,200).
