The Pitman volleyball team avenged its only league loss of the season on Thursday night, when the Pride, led by Ashley Solis' 26 kills, fought through a long match and an exciting fifth and final set to beat Buhach Colony High, 25-8, 13-25, 23-25, 25-21, 16-14, in Atwater.
The Turlock High girls water polo team aimed to make a statement against Pitman High, and that was to treat its crosstown rival just like any other team - an approach that helped erase all the special circumstances surrounding Tuesday night's match at the Pitman High pool.
Buhach Colony High football has been annihilating teams all season. In the Thunder's five wins, three of the teams couldn't score more than one touchdown, two were blown out by at least 53 points and only one opponent scored in double-digits.
In the raised stands of the old girls gym at Turlock High, fans stayed cool by fanning themselves with sheets of paper or whatever they got their hands on. Near the entrance were two gigantic fans blasting air inside to keep everyone from sweating.
