Argonaut Boys Varsity Basketball travels to Linden and back on the winning horse

The Mustang Boys Varsity Basketball team traveled to Linden on January 29, to take on the Lions, but the team was still suffering the effects of the Flu Bug. “Half the team was playing with the flu,” stated Coach Troy Mounier, “and it showed in the first half,” added Mounier.

From a scoring standpoint, things didn’t really look too bad as the Mustangs came out and put 22 on the board in the first quarter behind a hot Josiah Molin who hit a deuce...

The Argonaut JV Mustangs came prepared last Friday night to take on the Amador Buffaloes. After a disappointing, mid-season loss to Sonora, the JV squad won their last two games by an average of 26 points. The game against their cross county rival would hold a similar result.

Argonaut jumped out to a 9-0 lead to begin the game. They pressured the ball at both ends of the court and forced 9 turnovers in the first quarter. Adison Cramer led the way, wreaking havoc on defense and scoring on the offensive end. Jeremy Mendoza helped to...

The Amador Buffaloes looked to defeat the Bret Harte Bullfrogs Janaury 26, coming off a past close match up against them. The Buffaloes went into battle without their top scorer, Eric Shaw, nursing a partially torn shoulder.

It looked to be a one-way kind of game, as Bret Harte continually passed the ball with ease and went to work on defense, forcing the Buffaloes to take tough shots. The Bullfrogs main focal point was inside the paint, giving the ball to their big men which was no match for the Amador frontcourt. The quarter...

It is always a long trip to Summerville High School in Tuolumne City, but more so when the boys are sick and trying to hold down food and fluids on those curvy roads. Left behind on the Janaury 26 road trip was star player Ryan Halvorson and Khouri Kling with the flu and the rest of the boys of Argonaut were not doing much better.

“It was a tough game” said Coach Troy Mounier. “We had two starters out…and we had other kids throwing up at halftime.” In the 1st quarter the Argonaut boys put up a respectable 15 points but the...

Argonaut Varsity Basketball has defeated hosts Amador in the latest edition of the Big Game by a score of 38-29. Argonaut jumped out to an early lead with a balanced attack, with five different players scoring in the quarter to give them a 14-4 lead after the first quarter.

Amador dug in defensively in the second quarter, holding Argonaut to just five points, but struggled to make shots most of the game.

Argonaut lead 32-20 at the end of the third quarter. Amador attempted to stage a rally in the fourth quarter, trimming...

The Amador Boys Varsity Basketball Team traveled all the way to Jackson for the second round of Mother Lode League action. The match up put the two biggest guns in the league against one another but the shooter from Amador was injured and the game was not all we had hoped for.

Last week, Eric Shaw injured his shoulder and was only probable to participate in the game. However, this being one of the big games, Shaw was not able to restrain himself from participating… so game on…Eric Shaw and Ryan Halvorson and Amador Argonaut here...

We have reached the halfway point in the 2016 high school basketball season, and things are really starting to heat up in the girls’ and boys’ divisions of the Mother Lode League. On the varsity boys’ side Summerville has surprised the league so far at 5-1 in the MLL and 15-6 overall. The Bears dominated both Sonora and Calaveras in their first meetings of the season by winning by an average 18 points. Summerville’s only loss has been to Argonaut in a 68-67 thriller back on January 15. Calaveras is in second at 5-1 in the MLL and... [Read more]

We are now a couple of weeks into the Mother Lode League season for girls’ varsity basketball and the cream is starting to rise to the top of the division.

Amador Buffaloes

The Amador girls’ basketball team had two games last week and just like the week before they split the pair with a win and a loss. Let’s start with the loss. Last Monday, the Lady Buffs traveled to Sonora to take on a Wildcat team that should be down a little bit this year. You wouldn’t know it by looking them, because Sonora jumped out early on Amador and never...

Coach Kaleb Cagle and the 1 – 3 Amador Buffaloes hosted Calaveras, looking to notch another win at home.

Since the start of the game, Calaveras was displaying their proficient passing, resulting in multiple easy buckets from inside, scoring nearly every bucket in the quarter inside the paint. However, Amador was firing right back with the help of point guard Daylan Thetford, who played with tremendous physicality and feistiness, which did come back later to haunt him. The quarter ended with Calaveras up, 12 – 11.

With the inspiratio...

The Argonaut Boy’s Varsity Basketball team produced a hometown thriller in Jackson on Friday, Janaury 15, as the fans enjoyed an exciting photo finish at the line against the visiting Summerville Bears.

To start the game, Miles Tomczak and Ryan Halvorson came after the Bears and put in 12 while Dillon Hilliard popped a 3 and the Mustangs had 15 points.

The Bears hung right in there, scoring 16 of their own and it was a close contest at the end of the first period with Summerville leading by 1.

In the second period, the Mustangs...

The Amador High School Girls’ Varsity Basketball team started this year’s Mother Lode League by facing the Linden Lions at home, hoping to start their season off on the right foot with a home win.

From the tipoff, both teams were hungry and eager to tally a one under the “W” column. The Lions scored very well in the paint and cut hard to the basket, while the Lady Buffs were successfully hitting their jump shots from mid-range (especially Megan Macheel, who had a special night from the floor) and rebounding their missed opportunities...

Eric Shaw poured in 41 points. Ledger Dispatch file photo

On Monday night, the 0-2 Amador Buffaloes Varsity boys continued their pursuit of a first Mother Lode League win of the year, as they faced the Sonora Wildcats in the Buffs’ first league home game this season. What ensued was a 3-point shootout for the ages.

From the tipoff, it was obvious that the scoring of each team was centered around the arc, as Eric Shaw started off the game for the Buffaloes with 12 points, all coming on four shots from downtown. Shaw scored nearly all the Buffaloes points in the quarter, and he was assisted...

The Lady Mustangs dominated visiting Bret Harte High School, beating the Bullfrogs, 52-34, at home on Monday night. Argonaut spent the first half building a lead and were up 14 points at halftime. Bret Harte was never able to close the gap.

Argonaut’s offense was led by sophomore center Macie Arevalo, who roamed the paint at will, with no Bret Harte player strong enough to stop her. She finished the game with 21 points. Point guard sophomore Lauryn Davis had 13 points, shooting from both the perimeter (one 3-pointer) and driving to...

The Argonaut Mustangs hosted Linden High School Friday night and played like a team refocused on making a run at the Mother Lode League championship this year. In the first quarter, the Mustangs came out hot, smart and tough on defense. They went immediately to their big man, Ryan Halvorson, who scored in double digits for the quarter with 12 and the team scored 24 in the period with Andrew Hernandez jumping in with 8 of his own to end the period. Combined with good defense, the Argonaut boys opened the second period with a 24-10... [Read more]

December 29, the Amador Boys’ Varsity Basketball squad squared off with Highlands High School of Sacramento in the Colfax D4 Classic Holiday Basketball Tournament. These same two teams paired up for the Holiday last year and what a shootout that was as Amador Buffalo Eric Shaw scored 50 points enroute to a Buffalo victory in overtime, in spite of the fact that Mr. Tenelle from Highlands went for 51. That was a remarkable basketball game that you will probably never see again. As should be expected this year, the boys did not combine... [Read more]

Amador Girls’ Basketball dominated Forest Lake Christian in their last home game of non-league play, winning by a score of 54-27 on December 29.

Using an aggressive full court press and stepping into passing lanes for steals and easy baskets, the Lady Buffalo were in complete control early, ending the first quarter of the game 17-0. Amador then eased off the pressure, dropping the full court press and giving their starters plenty of rest, but continued to maintain a comfortable lead for the rest of the game.

The Amador and Argonaut girls’ basketball teams played a few games last week just before the New Year and both teams continue to impress as the Mother Lode League prepares to get underway.

Amador Buffaloes

The Amador girls did a lot of traveling last week as they played in a tournament in Dixon for three days. The lady Buffs finished that string of games with a 1-2 record. On Janaury 28, Amador traveled to Vacaville High School to play the Bulldogs.

The game was close throughout until Vacaville blew the game open by...

On January 5, the eighth grade Ione Colts visited the Mccaffrey Bulldogs in Galt. For review, the Colts had never beaten the Bulldogs over the past three seasons. And in fact, had never taken the lead in a game when facing Mccaffrey.

That losing streak ended this past Tuesday, when the Colts shocked the Bulldogs with impressive team play, ulitimately overcoming a nine-point halftime deficit.

In an intense second half, the Colts took the lead, then found the Bulldogs on top by seven points to then regroup and take the victory on...

Tuesday, December 29 the Argonaut Boys’ Varsity Basketball team played host to the Forest Lake Christian boys of Auburn California. As the preseason winds down for the Argonaut boy’s basketball team things are looking good for the Mustangs as they stand at ten wins with only one loss. To open up the first quarter the Mustangs slacked off on defense allowing the Christian Falcons to score 18 and were a bit slow on offense as well scoring only 13 and at the end of the period they were down by 5, on their home court to an inferior...

The perennial Amador High School girls soccer Alumnae Game had almost become something of a foregone conclusion. That’s because in the annual game pitting each year’s Amador girls varsity squad against a collection of former Buffalo players, the alums built a streak of eight games in a row without a loss. Try as they might, the varsity just could never score more goals than the feisty “old ladies” in the game which has become a great way to usher in the new year for Amador’s girls soccer program.

It’s still a traditional New...
