What a difference a year makes. A year ago, the Argonaut tennis team was going into the last week of the tennis season looking for their first victory of the year.

This year, they went into the last match with a 10-1 record — in first place — and a chance to be crowned league champions.

It’s been a season with great coaching from head coach Steve Russell and assistant coaches Regan Russell and Andy Oloan.

Team captains Wyatt Johnson and Cheyanne Sheridan have lead the team on and off the tennis court.

The Thundering Herds continued their stampede through the Mother Lode League girls soccer season, as both the Amador High junior varsity and Varsity teams defeated visiting Summerville on Tuesday. With their win, the JV clinched their fifth straight Mother Lode League championship with two games to spare.

The Amador varsity also defeated the Bears, inching ever closer to also winning their fifth consecutive league crown. But there are still games to be played, and Argonaut or Linden can still overtake the Buffaloes if all the...

The Argonaut girl’s varsity softball team picked up a couple of wins last week in the Mother Lode League to move to 6-4 in league and 10-9 overall.

Kaylee White had three hits, two RBI’s and scored a couple times to lead the Argonaut offense. Jayce Lucke also had three hits and two RBI’s, while Cameron DuBoise and Taylor Busi also had hits with...

It was a day of rest this past Tuesday for both of Amador High’s girls soccer teams, since it was the second and final bye for the Thundering Herds in the 2016 Mother Lode League season. The Buffaloes got in one more practice session prior to Thursday’s game, when they hosted Calaveras. Though the Blue Crew was idle, the rest of the league continued the second round of home and away games.

As luck would have it, both Buffalo squads looked on Tuesday from their respective seats at the head of the MLL table — JV unbeaten and untied...

The Argonaut Mustangs played two Mother Lode League games last week as they continue their quest for a league title.

Tuesday, April 12:

Argonaut vs. Sonora

In the first of the two games, Argonaut faced off against Sonora at Argonaut High School last Tuesday. From start to finish, this game was a nail-biter. In the first inning, Sonora racked up four runs, but the Mustangs got three of them back in the bottom half of the inning. Argonaut then took a 5-4 lead in the second inning after scoring two more runs. Neither team...

We’ve almost reached the halfway point of the high school softball season. On the girls’ side of the Mother Lode League, Linden continues to dominate as the Lions are 8-0 in league and sit in first place with a one game lead.

Calaveras is second at 7-1 but needs to beat Linden in their next match-up if they want a shot at the title.

In third place is Summerville at 5-3 followed by Argonaut at 4-4.

Amador is narrowly in fifth place at 2-6 while Sonora and Bret Harte are tied for sixth at 1-7.

There is still a lot of...

We’ve almost reached the halfway point of the high school baseball season in the Mother Lode League and the playoff picture is starting to form quite nicely.

In Varsity Boys’ Baseball, Linden clings to a one game lead at 7-1 in the MLL to hold the top spot.

Argonaut is right on the heels of Linden at 6-2 and has a firm grasp on second place.

Summerville has a half game lead on Sonora for third at 5-3 while the Wildcats are 4-3 in fourth.

Calaveras is in fifth but not out of it at 4-4 in the Mother Lode League.

The Argonaut Mustangs extended their winning streak to four games with a 8-2 non-conference win over the Florin Panthers on April 11.

The Argonaut pitchers kept the Panthers in check throughout the game with Brandon McMahon getting the win. He allowed two runs over five innings with ten...

Amador High’s Junior Varsity and Varsity girls soccer teams wrapped up the first half of the Mother Lode League season on Tuesday with both teams sitting in first place in their respective standings. Amador’s varsity stayed on top after beating Bret Harte. The junior varsity team also remained on top — and undefeated — but they got the night off since Bret Harte does not have a junior varsity team this year. Both Amador teams won their games last Thursday when the Thundering Herd visited the Mustangs at Argonaut.

In the sixth inning, Sonora rallied with five runs to tie the game and force an extra inning.

On offense for Argonaut, Makenna Cabri went 3-5 hitting and stole three bases and...

It’s hard to keep up with the Amador High School Track team — especially if you are trying to follow Anastasia Karnaze and Matt Conrardy.

A few weeks ago — at Bella Vista Distance Fiesta in Fair Oaks — both Anastasia Karnaze and Matt Conrardy broke the Amador High 3200 meter school records.

Both records had stood for over ten years.

Anastasia ran 11:20 and broke the Amador High School record by over 20 seconds, and Matt ran 9:55, breaking the Amador High School record by 4 seconds.

A great night for these two talented...
