Turlock earned some retribution on Tuesday, beating the Merced High team that spoiled their potentially undefeated season earlier in the year 215-235.
Schools often schedule weak opponents for homecoming, but Hilmar High opted for a different route, welcoming a challenge in the undefeated Orestimba High Warriors on Friday. Anxiety was in the air for all four quarters as Hilmar and Orestimba put on a show for the fans at McSweeney field, trading hard shots and touchdowns.
The Denair High football team (0-5) stepped on to the field in hopes of ending their losing streak and picking up their first win of the season as they took on the Knights of Ripon Christian (4-1) Friday night.

Denair High has had a hard time finding success on the court this season. In the first four Southern Athletic League matches the Coyotes' (0-5 SAL) have only managed to win a total of three sets, creating a need for a confidence boost amongst the team. Similarly, Turlock Christian has also had a rough start to the season, dropping three of its first four matches in straight sets. Needless to say the Eagles (2-3) were also searching for much-needed confidence prior to Wednesday's matchup with Denair.
Sometimes athletic contests are won before they begin; such seemed to be the case when Turlock and Pitman High met on the volleyball court on Tuesday. Three days removed from a championship finish at the Oakdale Tournament, the Pride (4-0 CCC) wore a look of cool confidence on their faces. Across the court, the Bulldogs (0-4 CCC) seemed anxious, weighted with the pressure to overcome the best team in the Central California Conference and save their season.

Turlock and Pitman High met at the Stevinson Ranch Golf Club on Wednesday in the first athletic matchup between the rival schools this fall, but you wouldn't necessarily know that from watching the girls on the course. Although the Bulldogs and Pride have developed a tradition of heated competition on the basketball court and football field, the golf course has proved to be cordial ground between former elementary and middle school classmates who focus more on the game rather than cross-town tension.
It is safe to say that Delhi (1-3) has been struggling on the football field these past few weeks. The Hawks continued their losing streak as they fell to Waterford (3-1) 61-20 Friday night.
Denair High spent the majority of Monday afternoon chasing the soccer ball - and their Delhi High opponents - as the Hawks controlled the field of play and the match's tempo.
