If you think your favorite high school teams are taking it easy over the summer break, you’d be wrong. The teams — Argonaut High School and Amador High School — are, however, finding fun ways to beat the summertime blues (and the heat).

For the Argonaut Cross Country team that training included a bit of fun at Plasse’s Resort.

They spent last week training at Plasse’s Resort. And while it may have been a lot of work, the smiling faces and camping mixed in well with their training providing memories and a beutiful way to stay...

The 2016 Mother Lode League girls soccer season is all wrapped up ­— but in about half a year hence, it will start all over again, as the Sac-Joaquin Section joins the rest of the state in playing girls and boys soccer together in the winter season. That will allow for true state championships in soccer. For everyone involved in our own Mother Lode League, it’s definitely going to be something of a crazy transition. But that’s still down the road.

To read the rest Mark Herberger's exciting coverage of the 2013 Mother Lode League...

On Thursday, May 12, the number two seeded Mustangs opened up the playoffs by hosting number seven seeded Mariposa High School. The Mustangs came out strong, controlling the game defensively led by Alex Isaac, Arianna Madrigal, Adelaide Cahill and Cheyenne Walker.

The Mustangs offense got going when Abigail House passed to Sabrina Bennett, who put it in the back of the net, resulting in a 1-0 halftime lead for the Mustangs. The second half the defense continued its domination and Mustang’s Abigail House, added a goal on an assist...

The Escalon Cougars knocked out the Argonaut Mustangs in the first round of the Division 5 Sac-Joaquin Section Baseball Tournament with a 6-3 victory Thursday, May 19 at Billy Hebert Field in Stockton.

However, the Cougars, who had been denied for most of the previous six innings, exploded for five runs on four hits, including two doubles to take a commanding 6-3...

Insightful scribes hate to use terms such as “The team will have to wait until next year” or “The team came close but couldn’t pull off the win” when describing how the team they are writing about falls short in the whatever championship game.

But sometimes clichés really are the only words your scribe finds apropos to the discussion at hand. That’s probably how they become clichés in the first place – sometimes you just run with it.

So the Amador High girls soccer team will indeed have to wait until next year (which in this...

Well the season is over for the Argonaut varsity softball team. Argonaut went 10-8 in the Mother Lode League and 14-13 overall and just barely missed the playoffs. I feel robbed. I think they should have made it. There are a lot of factors that go into deciding who goes to playoffs and who doesn’t. However that is not for me to decide, that is left up to geniuses in the CIF tournament committee. I think they got this one wrong.

Anyway, aside from missing the playoffs, the Lady Mustangs had a decent year. They had a winning...

The Argonaut Mustangs have been stampeding through opponents as the Mother Lode League varsity baseball season wound down this week. The Mustangs are heading in to the playoffs on a nine game winning streak and are carrying the title of Mother Lode League Champions with them.

After beating Sonora and Linden last week, Argonaut took care of business this week closing out the season as the hottest team in the MLL. The only question remaining is who will Argonaut play first on their quest to win a section title?

Let’s recap last...

With a season going not as well as the team had hoped, a change soon happened. At their final home game of the season, the Amador Buffaloes went home victorious in a 5-3 win over the Sonora Wildcats.

Teamwork and determination finally paid off for these boys big time. With one game left in the season, there is still hope that Amador can win another game and end the season better than it started.

Though playoffs will not be in the future, a raise in spirits and hope happened. The pitchers(Sam Madrid, Jordan Braun, Cameron Gish)...

Perhaps they missed their Little Sisters of the Thundering Herd.

The Amador High varsity girls soccer team traveled to Bret Harte last Thursday for their final Mother Lode League game of the season, and the junior varsity team was, literally, just along for the bus ride. There was no JV game prior to the varsity tilt, as on every other game day, and the varsity game kicked off earlier than usual. The JV squad sat out this one, of course, because – you know this line well -- Bret Harte has no JV team this year.

So the little...
