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.
Pitman and Hilmar football won't square off on the field this year, but at least their top-notch varsity volleyball teams were able to take their match to the court this Monday in the annual Foundation game.
Hilmar's varsity girls' golf team might have lost their three-time South Valley Foothill League Most Valuable Player in Makena Azevedo, but the new Yellowjackets are ready to roll into the 2016 year and have a positive outlook for the season ahead.
They might be humble and quiet, but the Turlock varsity girls' tennis team are winners and are ready and hungry to begin their chase for a 10th straight Central California Conference title in the upcoming season.
