The Amador Varsity Boys took a short trip to Galt to participate in the Galt Warriors Annual Holiday Basketball Tournament. Things started out real well for the herd as they stomped their way to a 60 to 13 win over an unprepared Able Charter basketball team. High scorer for the game was Eric Shaw, with 17 points. The tourney got a little tougher when they took on a very good and always prepared Ripon Christian team that came to play. Eric Shaw went for 28 but it wasn’t enough against this good Ripon Christian squad as the Ripon boys... [Read more]

Argonaut Varsity Boys Victorious At Pebble Beach

Pebble Beach…what a great place for a basketball tournament…right? Well actually what a great place for just about anything. It’s even a great place to go to high school for a year if you’ve got $36k and a little change hanging around a pocket full of holes. However, if you can’t join them year round it’s great to be invited down for a weekend every now and then. So, for the second time in as many years the Argonaut Boys Varsity Basketball team traveled to Monterey for the weekend...

The Mustangs started out strong against Escalon with a tough D that the Cougars found difficult to score against as they were limited to just 5 points for the quarter. Offensively, the Mustangs came out strong as well with Ryan Halvorson once again leading the way with 11 points in the first period.

The Mustangs took an 11 point lead in the first period and turned it into a 9 point lead at half time with some mediocre defense that prevented the Mustangs from putting the game away in spite of Dillon Hilliard’s awesome shooting...

The Argonaut Mustang Varsity Girls Basketball Team headed to Oakmont High School for the Oakmont Annual Holiday Basketball Tournament, last weekend. The Lady Mustangs played the host Oakmont High girls’ varsity squad in the tournament opener and battled out a tough one losing to the Oakmont girls 36 to 34. The second game matched them against an American Canyon girls’ team that led to their second defeat in the tournament by a score of 54 to 35. The final game was a chance to turn things around a bit if they could beat a Bear River... [Read more]

Without a doubt, girl wrestlers are rare. What makes Amador County’s team even more unique is the fact that three different schools make up the team roster. Three schools, one team.

In a sport where one would think that it is every person for him or herself, these girls are true teammates in every sense of the word.

They are each others’ biggest supporters. There is no rivalry between schools.

They are a team, or as they call each other a wrestling family.

They also happen to be extremely talented. As they look forward to the “No...

It is always interesting to see how a basketball team is going to start out the season. How about those Sixers (started out 0 – 17). Better yet, how about them Warriors (18 – 2). High hopes for a great season are often dashed early on, and now and then a nice surprise. So how is it going to be for our Argonaut Mustangs and Amador Buffaloes this year? I don’t know but there are some bright prospects. I have been coaching and spectating this same group of now high school varsity players on both sides since they were in fifth grade... [Read more]

After a good week in Escalon playing in the Championship game of the Girls Varsity Tournament the Lady Buffs returned to Amador County to host the Golden Sierra Grizzlies Tuesday night. An exciting evening ensued.

Ladies JV Buffaloes

First up the lady JV Buffs started out with a game that went to the wire. With the scored tied and just 10 seconds left on the clock the Golden Sierra Grizzly JV girls had the ball at their goal looking for an open shot when Erika Bates from Amador stole the ball and drove the length of the court...

The Lady Buffalos took a herd down to Escalon last weekend and had a little mini stampede at the Annual Escalon High Girls Holiday Basketball Tournament. A very young team consisting of six sophomores, three juniors and three seniors made their way through their first two opponents. First up was Millennium High School in Tracy which the Herd knocked down in a close contest 44- 40. Second up was the tournament host a good Escalon High team that looked to put up a win on their home court and move into the Championship game. But that... [Read more]

Argonaut Varsity Girls cruise to victory 39-18

The Argonaut girls had an easy time with the Eagles from Jim Elliot Christian last Thursday in the opening game of the annual Argonaut QB Tournament. You might say it was a complete team effort as eight different players scored for the Lady Mustangs. The game started off a bit slow as each team had a hard time putting the ball in the basket. At the end of the first quarter Argonaut held a 6-2 lead. The Mustangs scored 10 in the second period as Jim Elliot only scored 5 points. By...

Amador Boys Varsity Basketball played away Tuesday night in Sacramento against a stubborn Bradshaw Christian High School. In one of the most unusual starts in any basketball game I have ever seen the score at the end of the first quarter was Bradshaw Christian 8, Eric Shaw 12. The game tightened up from there on out with a balanced attack by both the Bradshaw and Amador boys sending them into the locker room at halftime with a score of 26 to 28 with Amador leading by 2. Things didn’t fare so well for the Buff’s in the third quarter... [Read more]

Sonora Wildcats Drop To Modesto Central Catholic 42-35

The Sonora Wildcats gave it their all, but in the end came up a touchdown short of winning the section championship last Friday against a very tough Central Catholic squad from Modesto.

Sonora struck first to take an early 7-0 lead, but the Raiders scored the next two TD’s to go up 14-7. The Wildcats tied it up at 14-14 at the end of the first but trailed at the half 28-21....
