Tuesday Night Stuff

  • Franklin boys volleyball defeated Elk Grove tonight in three games.  Set scores were 25-15, 25-17, 25-14.  Kameron Tinsley & Kyle Belvins both had 12 kills for the Wildcats. ...
  • Josh Crabtree, Sheldon's football coach, announced today he will be taking one year off from his coaching duties. He wants to spend more time with his ailing father. Herbie Berry, his offensive coordinator, will take over during Crabtree's one year absence. ..
  • I just finished the "Five Thoughts" column for the Citizen this evening. It's my first attempt at writing the weekly feature. Read it online at EGCitizen.Com Thursday afternoon. ....
  • Sheldon's softball team defeated Oak Ridge, 4-0, as Alexis Cooper tossed a one-hitter.  The Huskies need to win out the rest of the year for any hope at a repeat Delta River League championship
  • I have never heard of ESPN awarding anything like an "Elite Athlete" honor, but this email came in today:  As the youngest female sprinter and jumper on the (Franklin) Varsity team, Jorden E. O’Neal is determined to make it to the Olympics in the years to come. At barely fourteen years of age, she jumped an astounding 18-02.25 in the women's long jump at the UC Berkeley’s All Comers Meet on February 18. Since the start of the high school track season in late February, she has competed in multiple events including the 4 x 100 relay, 4 x 200 relay, the Sprint medley, the 4 x 400 relay, 100 meters, and 200 meters. Her recent long jump of 17.15 at the Thunder Invitational on April 14th in Rocklin placed her on the ESPN HS, Top 100 US Elite Athletes list.
  • On April 28, Jorden will compete in the girl’s varsity long jump and the girl’s 4 x 100 meter relay at Sacramento’s Meet of Champions.
