Brooke Riley continues to amaze.

At Wednesday’s Valley Oak League match against rival Manteca High, the East Union High ace golfer fired a two-under par 35 during the nine-hole match at the Manteca Park Golf Course.

“Brooke is always amazing,” said Lancers coach Brian Goulart.

In the process, Riley kept East Union (6-0 in VOL, 10-0 overall) perfect for the season.

The Lancers tallied 220 (no score or individual results were reported for the Buffaloes).

Manteca dropped its mark to 3-5.

East Union received balanced scoring. Natalie Cowan shot a 43.

“She’s playing as good as she did a year ago,” Goulart added.

Allie Tajii (46), Brittany Conijn (48), and Chloe Cardenas (49) rounded out the Lancers’ scoring.

East Union will host Oakdale today.


Ripon def. Escalon

The Indians improved to 5-0 with a Trans Valley League victory over Escalon. 

Breeanna Huckell, Ripon’s No. 2 player, carded a 38 to help lead the way.

She finished a stroke better than Huckell (39).

Samantha Carl (42), Claire Weaver (45), Sierra Atilano (45), and Alyssa Demara (47) also contributed to the Ripon cause.



Manteca 9, Kimball 0

The Buffaloes started off the second round of VOL play Wednesday with a shutout of Kimball. The match also served as a tune up for Manteca, which heads to unbeaten Central Catholic today.

Elizabeth Tolbert defeated Maxine Jaque 6-4, 6-3 in the No. 1 match-up. Koryn Menasco — moved up to the No. 2 spot for the day — came back to down Ellen Chang 3-6, 6-1, 6-0.

Katie Inderbitzin (6-1, 6-3), Taylor Corona (6-0, 6-0), Gladis Sandoval (6-4, 6-2) and Julia Tang (6-0, 6-0) all swept.

Rag Dillon and Jessica Tang dominated 6-0, 6-1 in the No. 1 doubles contest. Makenna Condit/Navina Mann (6-1, 2-6, 6-3) and Ivy Benson/Julianne Eavenson (6-3, 6-2) completed the shutout.
