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...

Amador High’s Varsity soccer team clinched their fifth straight Mother Lode League championship on Tuesday when the Thundering Herd corralled Argonaut’s Mustangs with a 3-1 win over their visiting cross-county rivals. Last Thursday, the Buffaloes resoundingly avenged their only defeat of the league season when they stomped Linden, 5-0, on the Lions’ own savannah. Linden had earlier in the season dealt Amador a 2-0 loss, the only blemish on an otherwise undefeated, untied season, pending the results of Amador’s final game which was... [Read more]

Miles Tomczak and Brody Elmore both had a hit and two RBI’s.

John Curran had a pair of hits with an RBI, while Dylan Speer, Ryan Halvorson and Sean Purdy also had RBI’s.

The Argonaut Mustangs picked up two more wins in the Mother Lode League last week as they defeated Summerville 5-2 and Bret Harte 17-0.

In the Summerville versus Argonaut game it was a pitchers duel that saw the Mustangs come out on top in the end.

Brandon McMahon anchored the Argonaut pitching staff against the Bears, as he went five innings giving up seven hits but only surrendering two runs.

Sean Purdy entered the game in the later innings to pitch the sixth and seventh to finish the win off for the Mustangs.

With just five games to go in the Mother Lode League Varsity softball season, the playoff picture has become clear. Linden and Calaveras are in for sure.

Calaveras sits in first place in the MLL with an 11-1 league record with Linden in second at 10-2. The league championship is still up for grabs between these two teams but the playoffs are a lock for both.

Summerville sits in third at 7-4 with Argonaut in fourth at 7-5. The Bears and the Lady Mustangs will fight it out for third, but I believe these two teams will make the...

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.

Argonaut played Sonora last Tuesday and dominated the Wildcats from start to finish. The Lady Mustangs did all of their damage in the first four innings as they cruised to a 14-0 win.

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...
