Cagle is a 30-year-old teacher at Amador who grew up in a basketball family, watching Duke basketball teams play under his idol, “Coach K,”...

Elk Grove grad Derek Hill was drafted today -- in the first round, 23rd overall! -- by the Detroit Tigers.

The scarcity of athletes like Derek Hill cannot be overstated.

“The last player (in the Sacramento area) that was drafted in the first round out of high school was, I believe in 1998, out of Woodland High School, by the San Francisco Giants,” says Jeff Carlson, Hill’s coach at Elk Grove High School. “It’s very rare.”

Even Hill’s father, a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers, may not be able to get his hands on his own son...

For the second year in a row, the Amador Varsity girls’ soccer team will advance to the Division V Sac-Joaquin Section championship game. Once again, the opponent will be Capital Christian High School.

Seniors Paige Workman and Shania Bennett have played four years of playoff games, not to mention numerous years of recreation league soccer.

Many people don’t realize that Amador’s...

He's all of 5'6" and 135 lbs, not much to look at - a below average fastball, but when it comes to grit and determination, he can't be beat. Calaveras sent out their ace - senior Wyatt Durham against Escalon in a win or go home game on Monday afternoon and Wyatt didn't let anyone down. Wyatt spread out 6 hits and allowed 3 runs in a complete game 5-3 win for Calaveras. The Redskins jumped out in front early 4-0 after 2 innings.

In the first, with one out and a man on first Calaveras strung together 3 singles and an Escalon error...
