By From page A6 | August 11, 2014

Four area baseball players — Jonathan Wong (Union Mine, Occidental Collge), Matt Poulin (Ponderosa, Sonoma State), Troy Zeier (Ponderosa, Sac City), John Creason (Union Mine) — were on the summer roster for the Sacramento Legends semi-pro baseball team which reached the American Amateur Baseball Congress Stan Musial World Series in Farmingdale, N.Y. The team finished with an overall record of 49-24 and were 11-0 as Sacramento Premier League champions before winning the West Regional playoffs in Palo Alto. Wong hit .299; Poulin batted .269 with 24 RBIs; Zeier drove in 26; and Creason went 2-0 on the mound — all stats through Aug. 5. The team dropped its first two last weekend in Farmingdale to end its season.


Union Mine High has a new athletic director in Jay Aliff, a long-time health and physical education teacher on campus who has coached the Diamondbacks’ cross-country, wrestling and track and field programs. Aliff takes over for Chad McGowan, the interim athletic director who replaced Dave Johnson.


Hole-on-one: Keith Krum on the 17th hole using a 9 iron from 130 yards out at Cold Springs Golf and Country Club.
Hole-in-one: Steve McDaniel on the 15th hole with a U wedge from 92 yards out at Apple Mountain Golf Resort.
