Pitman (6-0), Delhi (6-0), Hilmar (5-1), Turlock (5-2) and Denair (4-2) varsity football are off to fantastic starts to their seasons and it has done nothing but make the year that much more exciting for our coverage area and the community.

Coming off a strong performance against last year's Central California Conference champions, Merced, just two days prior, the Pitman High boys' varsity water polo team was hoping to carry some of that momentum into Wednesday's league match with Buhach Colony, but things didn't work out that way.
Coming off a tough loss to Tracy last Thursday the Turlock High varsity volleyball team managed to overcome those mistakes to defeat Central California Conference opponent Atwater in Tuesday's home contest that ended in straight sets, 3-0 (26-24, 25-27 and 25-9).
An 0-2 start isn't ideal for the Turlock Bulldogs, but neither was Monday's Central California Conference matchup between the Turlock and Atwater High varsity girls' water polo teams that ended, 7-6 in overtime.
Turlock High's Gabe Sleeper scored the first two goals of Monday's contest but it wasn't enough as the Bulldogs boys' varsity water polo team fell to Atwater, 14-8, after getting outscored 14-6 in the final three quarters.
