Baseball Dragons level El Mo; Sonoma suffers SCL losses in softball, golf, tennis; Hurley’s Ukiah ace
Sonoma’s Will Rose steals third-base during the Dragons’ nonleague victory over Eureka last Saturday at Arnold Field.
With their blend of the three main ingredients for winning baseball – pitching, hitting and defense – Sonoma Valley High School’s varsity boys took a successful Sonoma County League road trip to Forestville yesterday.
Senior ace Sam Alton provided near-perfect pitching, the offense unleashed a 13-hit attack – sparked by senior Sean Daly’s four-RBI day – and, except for one hard-luck and harmless error, the defense was rock-solid, and the visiting Dragons were dominating in posting a 10-run-rule, six-inning 13-0 victory over El Molino.
The Dragons will hold their inaugural Sonoma Green and White Alumni Baseball Game at 5 p.m. this Saturday, April 9, at Arnold Field, with a pre-game get-together and alumni batting practice session set for Friday, April 8.
Any Dragon alumnus still interested in playing can contact Sonoma Lyons at 996-7030 or email@example.com.
Three of Sonoma Valley High School’s young spring sports teams had a rough afternoon of Sonoma County League road action yesterday, with the Sonoma softball girls and tennis boys suffering one-sided defeats to powers Petaluma and Casa Grande, respectively, while the golfing Dragon boys were edged by Analy.
During Monday’s annual Ukiah Tournament, Sonoma sophomore Brian Hurley fired his first-ever hole-in-one on the 132-yard fifth hole.
