Hilmar baseball topped Hughson 6-2 on Tuesday at home but failed to muster that same magic on Wednesday after a game that ended in a mercy-rule decision and gave the Yellowjackets their first league loss of the year.
In their first meeting of the year on the softball diamond, Pitman was able to claim victory over Turlock in a one-run decision that ultimately came down to defense and a three-run inning in the third.
In a battle for first place in the Central California Conference, Turlock's varsity boys' tennis team proved to be the superior ones in league after an outright sweep over Pitman in their first meeting of the year, 9-0.
The Turlock varsity baseball team was coming off a dismal week that didn't end well for the Bulldogs, who competed in the Boras Classic tournament but looked to turn it around after competing in their final two preseason games during spring break.
The Hilmar Yellowjackets softball team are heading into their spring break with a 4-3 overall record in preseason play after finishing the short week with a 1-1 record after toppling Gustine on Monday, followed by an 8-4 loss to Los Banos on the road on Tuesday.
