Five area spring volleyball players, led by national ace leader Elijah Magat of El Dorado, head the list of local prep athletes picked to the annual All-City team which was honored at a recent Sacramento River Cats baseball games. Joining Magat was teammate Tait Miller, Ponderosa’s Tanner Charron and Haward Gomes, and Oak Ridge’s Sam Greenleaf. The following players were also selected.

Seven local softball players will appear in Wednesday’s 37th annual Optimist All-Star Softball games at Capital Christian High — four in the large school and three in the small school.
Coaching the South team in the large school game is Oak Ridge head coach Sam Kloczko and his assistants Samantha Toy, Hope Kloczko, Don Okasaki and Dave Smith. The four players are the Trojans’ Caitlyn Olan and Lindsey Zito and the Bruins’ Taylor Doane and Rachel Timberman.
In the small school game is Golden Sierra’s Savannah Stephens, Marina Alexander and Sam Bastien.


Winter holdover: Golden Sierra’s head boys basketball coach Al Toney was selected Co-Coach of the Year for leading the Grizzlies into the playoffs. First-team honors went to Peter Biersteker while Honorable Mention went to Nick White and Micah Wever. Golden Sierra finished in fourth in the Sierra Delta League. On the girl’s side, Jenna Pendzinski and Becca Brown were Honorable Mention.
On the mat, Grizzly 120-pounder Patrick Lewis was selected Lightweight MVP. All League recognition went to Joseph Herrera (113).


Congratulations to Golden Sierra’s Abigail Wever for her recent haul at the school’s academic awards ceremony. Wever, a student stringer for the Mountain Democrat’s sports department, received the California Scholastic Federation’s Life Membership Highest Honor award and was recognized for Excellence in Journalism, Civics and Economics and Peer Advocacy. She’ll attend UC Santa Barbara in the fall.


Hole in One: Placerville’s David Fulwiler used a pitching wedge on the 17th hole at Apple Mountain Golf Resort from 128 yards out.
