Turlock and Pitman boys varsity water polo teams both put on solid performances Monday night, highlighted by a surprising tight first half.
The Delhi varsity football team already made school history last week by starting off the year with four consecutive wins and they continued their win streak this Friday after topping Gustine, 18-6, in a physical defensive battle.
In a disappointing night for Turlock Christian High football, the Eagles fell to the defending Sac-Joaquin Division VII champions Stone Ridge Christian High Knights on their first night of league play, 49-8.

It came down to the wire in what ended in one of the most exciting Central California Conference boys water polo matches to date on Monday night when Turlock hosted Merced High in what resulted in a 14-13 sudden death overtime victory for the Bulldogs.
Not only was Turlock High's game on Friday night their league opener – it was also the team's first game back at Joe Debely Stadium after turf issues kept them away from home for the first weeks of the season, and the Bulldogs came to play, defeating Buhach Colony High 49-27.
Senior Pride running back Devan Bass and the Pitman varsity football team overcame their largest deficit of the year, and their worst first half performance thus far, after trailing 27-7 at the half, to pull out of Merced with a dramatic second half comeback.
Hilmar High varsity football came up short in Friday's home contest against Sonora in the Yellowjackets' homecoming night that didn't end well after a 37-27 final, but the score did not reflect the game.
The Turlock High Bulldogs knew what they were up against on Friday as they faced the Modesto High Panthers.
Homecoming week can be a distraction for anybody involved, especially student-athletes, however, Hilmar embraces the challenge.
The Pitman High girls varsity water polo team came ready to play on Wednesday against Golden Valley and their efforts resulted in a 17-6 win over Golden Valley.
The Pitman Pride varsity boys' water polo team might have defeated Golden Valley, 10-8, in Wednesday's home contest but the ending was one that head coach Colin Wenstrand said he had never witnessed before in over a decade of coaching.
The Turlock Bulldogs varsity volleyball team overcame a first set loss to eventually capture the victory over new Central California Conference opponent, El Capitan, in Tuesday's home league opener in a 3-1 final (20-25, 25-15, 25-14 and 25 21).
Turlock's varsity boys water polo team captured a victory over El Capitan in the Bulldogs' home league opener on Monday night, but the girls team did not have the same success.
