Turlock High entered the 11th annual Harvest Bowl on Friday night with a chip on its shoulder and a playoff spot on the line. The Bulldogs had missed their shot at the Central California Conference championship by a mere three points a week prior, and with a 5-4 record, they desperately needed to defeat their rival, Pitman High, to keep their season alive.
As the end of the girls' tennis season is within reach, the team is still alive but the singles and doubles tournament ended for the Turlock High Bulldogs on Thursday at the Johnson Ranch Racquet Club in Roseville.
The Delhi Hawks soccer team had been running with a streak of wins this season, but it wasn't enough to stop Riverbank High, who defeated the Hawks 2-0 in their CIF Sac-Joaquin sections playoff game Thursday afternoon.

Turlock has a rich tradition of football excellence. From Turlock High to Pitman High, and even Turlock Christian High, coming-of-age Turlockers have spent a majority of their formative years on the gridiron, locked in competition. As is the case in many other towns in the area, these players often get their start at the youth level where they learn the game, sharpen their skills and build friendships that can last a lifetime.
Turlock High swept both the Central California Conference Singles tournament and Doubles tournament for the second year in a row on Thursday. Competing on the home courts of Atwater High, Mila Johns claimed the singles title while the newly formed team of Lauren Carlson and Courtnie Chan took the doubles title.
