Daughters of Turlock squared off on the basketball court Wednesday night when Pitman High hosted Turlock Christian High in a pre-league clash of divisions.

Turlock Christian High faced off against Stone Ridge Christian High for a game of pre-league basketball for the second time in eight days Tuesday night. While the location of the game was different, the outcome was not.

Wrestling is arguably the oldest sport in history, but what won't be argued is that it is one of the toughest and most demanding. A one-on-one contest that requires peak physical conditioning and lasting mental fortitude, wrestling is a test of true grit. Young athletes develop dedication for the sport through years of practice, but that's not the only quality that can be cultivated in a wrestling room. Dedication, perseverance, and self-determination-these qualities are also shaped by the sport and often influence more than just the athletic aspect of a person's character.

It's safe to say the game of soccer is well represented in the area.
After defeating Stagg High in the Division I Sac-Joaquin Section out-bracket game last week, Turlock High's boys' basketball team knew it would have to play perfectly if they were upset number one seed Jesuit High in Tuesday's first-round playoff game-and for one half of play they did just that.
One step away from State. That's what a select few wrestlers are thinking after Saturday's conclusion of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V Tournament at Delhi High.
