Sierra shows well against VOL co-leading Sonora

Sierra High showed it’s ready to make a run at the Valley Oak League’s top three girls golf programs Thursday.

Led by co-medalist Tora Hohn, the Timberwolves were edged out 273-280 at Manteca Park Golf Course’s par-37 front nine.

Sonora (6-1) is locked in a three-way tie for first place with East Union and Oakdale, while Sierra represents (3-4) the best of the rest. But for second-year coach Jack Thomson, the Timberwolves are gaining enough confidence to not be satisfied with holding that distinction.

The last time Sierra met Sonora, it lost 265-318 on the road in the VOL opener.

“Big improvement for us,” Thomson said. “We’re getting better, but we’re kind of past the stage of moral victories, so we’re a little disappointed today.”

Hohn tied with Sonora’s Emma Holloway for the low score of 52. Sierra’s Elia Vazquez (54), Melanie Kiesel (55) and Lexus Barnes (57) were not too far behind.
