The defending Bay Valley Athletic League Most Valuable Player looks well on her way to winning the award for a second straight year. The Patriots’ slugging first baseman absolutely pulverized BVAL pitching during the first two weeks of league play from April 14-23.

The Rams’ junior guard saved her best for last in leading St. Mary’s to the Open Division Championship. In the final, Cayton scored a game-high 21 points and added seven rebounds, five assists and two steals as the Rams defeated Mater Dei-Santa Ana 76-69.
With Asha Thomas sidelines for much of the season, the Dragons morphed into Aisia Robertson’s team.

The Bruins’ guard/forward earned All-Tournament honors at the recent Casa Roble Ram Challenge which Ponderosa won. Craft averaged 20.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 4.6 steals per game in the three-game tournament. She led the team with 27 points in both the first-round and semifinal victories.
It’s a new era at Carondelet — three new starters and a new coach — but it looks a lot like the old era thanks to Hughes. The non-stop, full-throttle point guard has been the catalyst for the Cougars 11-1 start through Jan. 12. Carondelet looked especially good toward the end of December when they rolled through...

The shifty running back closed out a stellar postseason by rushing for 125 yards and the eventual game-winning touchdown in a 14-7 win over St. Helena in the North Coast Section Div. V championship on Dec. 5.
What didn’t Fadelli do in his team’s Nov. 28 North Coast Section Div. III semifinal against Analy-Sebastopol? In a back-and-forth, good old fashioned shootout, the Cougars running back was a scoring machine. He rushed for 124 yards and four touchdowns and mixed in an 88-yard kick return for a touchdown.
