Cubs playing solid volleyball

The volleyball team has a 4-2 conference record, with six conference games left. Wins over Sierra and Sac City helped improve their record. Michelle Fletcher leads the team as well as the Big 7 Conference in blocks. The Cubs hosted the Bear Cub Classic on Oct. 22, and split their two games, with a win over Chabot and a loss to Taft. Up next for the Bear Cubs in conference action at home is against Consumes Valley on Oct. 28 at 6:30 p.m.

Men’s soccer undefeated

The Bear Cubs remain unbeaten in what seems to be another stellar year for the team. Moises Medrano leads the team with 17 goals and goalie Tebias Mason is making a name for himself between the poles. With only four games left in the season, the Bear Cub undefeated record is on the line as they face Delta and American River, who they beat 1-0. You can see the Cubs on Oct. 28 versus Delta at 4:00 p.m.

Fitzpatrick to be honored

Coach Jake Ftizpatrick is going on his 21st year of leading the Bear Cub wrestling team. He’s led the team to five conference championships and later this year will receive the Robert Budd trophy, at a ceremony in Oklahoma City, for his hard work and outstanding commitment. His team is off to a good start which could be contributed to be different reasons.

“It’s due to their solid work ethic and their commitment,” says assistant coach Rich Patterson.

They put in a tremendous amount of work just to make sure that they are two steps ahead of whomever they’re facing physically and mentally. This may be the reason their record stands at 3-1, which places them 2nd in the Big 7 conference. Jason Collard, ranked 6th in state in the 190lbs. class, and Royce Thomas, who is currently ranked 2nd, are off to a good start and wrestlers that are worth going to watch.
