The Argonaut Mustang varsity softball team fell one game short of the CIF Div. VI championship game as they fell to a tough Wildcat team from Waterford last Wednesday by a score of 12-2.

Senior Haley Stahl led the Argonaut offense with two hits, while Sophomore McKenna Cabri ended a very good year with one hit and one RBI. Senior Chelsea...

The Ripon Indians arrived at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V girls soccer championship game last Saturday having lost only one game the entire season. With 18 wins and one tie to round out their record coming in to the game, they were the No. 1 seed in the tournament. They also boasted slightly higher rankings than their final opponent on the national, state and section levels. By all accounts, Ripon was probably, you know, sort of favored to win this game.

But Ripon’s opponents in that game — your very own Amador Buffaloes —...

Late breaking news: The Amador High varsity girls soccer team beat Summerville by a score of 2-1 Wednesday night to advance for the third straight year to the Sac-Joaquin Section championship game.

This semi-final tilt was an all Mother Lode League affair. Amador arrived as MLL champions for the fourth year in a row, and Summerville had finished tied with Calaveras for second place in the MLL, but Calaveras was moved to Division IV for schools that are bigger than those in Division V.

The vagaries of the scheduling made it a...

Every student athlete is special. They grow up around us adults so fast and occasionally, just every once in a long while, those children we watched, those youth we cheered on... Well, they grow up to be champions.

On and off the field, these young women have been a pleasure to watch, to celebrate and to cherish as they were crowned champions of the Mother Lode League year after year.

I, for one, as the publisher of a small hometown newspaper, remember some of them as little girls from years past. Now they’re young ladies, but...

Amador’s tennis season came to a disappointing end Tuesday as the Buffaloes dropped a tight 4-5 match to Colfax in the second round of the CIF playoffs, exactly a week after they clinched their second consecutive Motherlode League championship with a convincing 8-1 victory over Bret Harte.

It all came down to the final match of the day, a number two girls doubles contest where Colfax’s Parker Francella and Emily Webb were able to slide past Amador’s duo of Alyssa Rodgers and Brenna Wade, 5-7, 5-7.

Sonora got another run in the second inning as Argonaut was held scoreless to take a 3-0 lead into the third. Tomczak settled down though as neither team...

The Lions put up four in the second and led 4-0 after two. Argonaut scored a run in the bottom of the...

At the end of the day, Argonaut finished fourth in the tournament behind Sonora, Bret Harte, and Calaveras. Unfortunately, the fourth place finish did not qualify Argonaut for sections as only the top three teams get to move on, however, Chad Floyd, a junior,...
