As girl’s varsity Volleyball gets closer to its 2015 – 2016 season, the question is: Can anyone beat Sonora? Last year saw Sonora roll through the Mother Lode League undefeated to take the MLL crown. Not only did Sonora win the league, but they also won the section and the state championships. Now the defending champs have the opportunity to defend their titles. First however, they must get through league before hey can think about repeating. Below are my predictions on how everyone will finish in the MLL.

The Amador County Eagles, formerly the Argonaut Jr. Mustangs and the Amador Jr. Buffaloes, visited Linden Saturday, August 15 for Jamboree.

All the squads performed extremely well in what was a very hot day. Most families arrived early in the morning, braved through the heat of the day, before heading back home around mid afternoon.

All squads, at the various levels of play, participated in three mini-games throughout the day to test their skills.

For coaches it is a chance to see how players perform, as well as how they...

The 2015-2016 Mother Lode League football season is almost upon us. Last year saw newcomer Sonora roll through the MLL to go undefeated in league. Sonora lost the CIF Division IV Championship game in a shootout with Central Catholic by a score of 42-35. This year Sonora looks to get back into the playoffs and take care of unfinished business, but first they must get through the Mother Lode League once again. Can anyone beat Sonora this year? Here are my predictions for the upcoming MLL season.

The Amador High School Cross Country Team builds team spirit and gets ready for the upcoming season with some training at Silver Lake. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch

Last week, seventeen members of the 2015 Amador High School Cross Country Team met at Silver Lake for three days of training, camping, team building and just having a great time.

The team ran a minimum of twice daily, covering between eight and eighteen miles a day. If that sounds like difficult training, or a painful start to the season, one only needs to look at the “Thunder Shot” the team was kind enough to send the Amador Ledger Dispatch to witness first hand a talented team that enjoyed every minute of their training on the...

13-year-old Mea Alleyn, student at Jackson Junior High School, just competed in one of the largest softball tournaments in the nation last week. The tournament was in beautiful Huntington Beach and lasted eight days. Her team, Lady Magic, was up against the best teams in the 12-year-old premiere category in the nation. They played against the nine best teams in the United States and were so incredibly good, they ended up in the winner’s bracket. There are 11 members of Lady Magic and they all learn each position and rotate. “My... [Read more]

As part of the ongoing cleanup work in Jackson, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will stabilize and cover a large, steep embankment below the athletic field at Jackson Junior High School. The embankment is partially composed of mine tailings and has been found to contain high levels of arsenic. While the slopes of the embankment are not generally accessed by students, EPA would like to ensure protection of human health by cleaning up this area. The slopes will be capped with shotcrete, which will limit potential... [Read more]

Amador has a new TV show, Teens on the Scene, which began to air on TSPN this Spring. It features teen cohosts, Shasta Garcia and Andrew Mees, who cover teen activities in the county.

Amador Tennis Club hosted its annual FUN(d)raiser Tournament on May 30 and 31 at Argonaut High School. Profits will go to the club’s ambitious project to construct two additional tennis courts at the school. Despite the warm weather, turnout was good and the tennis was great. A huge thank you is due to all the volunteers who helped with the tournament and the local merchants who donated prizes.

In men’s singles, former Amador standout player Josh Harder battled mightily but lost to Dan Klement, director of ATC’s wildly successful...

Matt Huss, last years star baseball pitcher for the Argonaut Mustangs, was a key player for this year’s Delta College Mustangs squad as they once again (2nd year in a row) made it to the Championship game of the JUCO (Junior College) State Baseball Finals. As everyone in baseball knows you have to win the last game of the year to accomplish your ultimate goal. Unfortunately for the Delta College Mustangs of Stockton, in spite of being ranked number one in the nation with the best record in Junior College, and having one of the best... [Read more]

Eight teams signed up for the spring basketball league this year and director John Williamson, using some history, divided them into two fairly competitive divisions. The champion Hammerheads with a returning solid roster were the team to beat. The A division’s three other teams were a reconfigured blend of familiar players and new ones. Early on it became obvious that two teams were going to vie for first, the Hammerheads and the returning team sponsored by Bo Gillman’s Matich Vucovich Insurance with a few new players in the mix....

So we wrapped up the Amador Buffloes soccer season last week, but as happens, Herb got a little long winded and we definitely don’t want to leave out a very important piece of the story. The story of a community coming together to support our champions — the 2015 Junior Varisty and Varisty Amador Buffalo Soccer teams.

There are plenty of folks to thank, and we will undoubtedly leave someone out — but we are hopeful it is never too late to say thank you — and if we miss, please know it is not intentional.

For starters, in our...

In the battle for bragging rights leading into the next year, and for some — the final battle as they head off to their future outside of high school — Argonaut once again hosted the Powderpuff Classic. Where only one team can be victorious, the women’s flag football match did not disappoint. In the end the Upper Classmen took home the victory. The Under Classmen did go on record saying they were distracted by the boys cheer team and some “interesting outfits” and “scary moves” with at least one witness going on record as saying,...

We’re thinking it might have been the Chunk o’ Stanford Sod.

We said earlier that the success of both the varsity and junior varsity Amador High girls soccer teams this year could be attributed to several things. We narrowed it down to the fact that there are simply lots of hecka talented girls out there representing.

And we don’t mention them all that much, but the coaches may have had something to do with it. On the varsity side, that’s Barron Peterson, Sarah Schwabe and Jessica Renzelman. On the JV side, it’s Mitch Karr and...

Perhaps it was the pink stripes on the otherwise traditional Amador navy and white coaches’ shirts. After all, they do coordinate nicely with the flaming flamingo-pink shirts worn by the Amador goalkeepers.

Perhaps it was the spiffy new shoes that the coaches (usually) wore on the sidelines to complement those aforementioned shirts and complete the package of sartorial splendor.

Or perhaps it was just a formidable, stellar, peerless collection of skill and heart on both the varsity and junior varsity Amador High School girls...

With the end of her track and field season on the line, Anastasia Karnaze kept her cool at the CSU Stanislaus Divisional Track and Field meet on Thursday, May 21. Keeping her nerves in check, relaxing and waiting for her race she was calm and ready. But when that starting pistol signaled for her to kick into gear, Karnaze answered. And answered with an amazing performance.

Karnaze, a Junior at Amador High School, broke the school’s 31 year old 1600 meter (mile) record with a time of 5:10.66 during the Division Finals, and...
