Dragons victorious in baseball, softball, but upended in golf, tennis
Sophomore Zoe Gaarder pitches for the young Lady Dragons, who routed Healdsburg yesterday at the high school field.
Having recently taking sole possession of first-place in the Sonoma County League, Sonoma Valley High School’s young varsity baseball boys will face a barrage of challenges down the final stretch of the season, which was the case last night on the SCL road.
The Dragons, with their senior mound ace Sam Alton pitching another gem, were just tied at 2-2 by Healdsburg in the bottom of the fourth inning when they loaded the bases in the top of the fifth and broke the deadlock as junior Will Rose touched home plate after junior Sam Morgan was hit by a pitch for a 3-2 victory.
Trailing 3-0 after just a half-inning into their SCL home game yesterday afternoon at the high school field, the Sonoma Valley High School varsity softball girls answered with a 13-run outburst in the bottom of the first and rolled to a 21-5 rout of visiting Healdburg.
Sonoma’s tennis boys ended their SCL regular season yesterday with a 5-2 loss at Petaluma, while the Dragon boy golfers dropped a 221-244 SCL regular-season-ending decision to El Molino at the Northwood Golf Course in Monte Rio.
