Oak Ridge senior Zach Youngberg competed at the prestigious 46th Annual Arcadia Track & Field Invitational in the Los Angeles area last weekend, one of the many athletes from 32 states, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Youngberg competed in the 110 Meter High Hurdles, turning in a time of 15.80 seconds, his second fastest electronic time of the year. He did not hit a single hurdle at his Arcadia race.
El Dorado 10, Liberty Ranch 0 — Tim Hinrichs allowed five hits and struck out five in Monday’s five-inning Sierra Valley Conference road win due to the mercy rule. The Cougars scored twice in the first, added five in the second and coasted. Zack Culp and Garrett Scalero each had two hits and a double while Kevin Morrison added two hits. Nick Bonniksen and Ryan Rodriguez each drove in two runs. El Dorado had 11 total hits.
“One of our very few games that wasn’t a nailbiter. Hinrichs threw strikes and we hit well — one of those days where we played very well and they didn’t,” Cougar coach Rusty McDonald said.
Ponderosa 4, Folsom 6 — The visiting Bruins rallied for three runs in their last at bat Monday but fell short in their Delta River league opener. Parker Wright pitched five and two-third innings for Ponderosa and allowed seven hits. Only two Bulldog runs were earned. Offensively for the Bruins, Ian Boyle tripled and doubled; Matthew McBride went 3-for-4; and Matt Poulin added two hits. RBIs came from Poulin, Boyle, Jeff Martin and Troy Zeier.
El Dorado 5, River City 9 — The Cougars trimmed a 7-0 deficit to 7-4 in the fifth inning of its Sierra Valley Conference road game in West Sacramento Monday but eight errors were too much for El Dorado to overcome. Joselyn Wright pitched all six innings for El Dorado, allowing seven hits and drove in 4 runs.
