Christopher High senior pitcher Aly Olvera efficiently negotiated the Monte Vista Christian lineup with ease, striking out 11 en route to no-hitting the Mustangs and a 5-1 Cougars' victory in the two teams Monterey Bay Athletic League opener Tuesday in Gilroy.
GILROY—Just a few weeks ago Christopher was winless. Now, the Cougars are eyeing a postseason berth.
It can't be called a streak until it's more than one, and the Christopher High football team made sure it's first loss of the year last week didn't transition into its second against North Monterey County on Friday night.
Maddie Peterson is everywhere on the pitch for the Christopher High field hockey team. It has been that way for four years. Peterson, even as a freshman and sophomore, had the attention of opposing players, which didn't matter, really, because most rarely could stand their ground when they went shoulder to shoulder with Peterson on a up-field rush.
Three different players registered at least three goals as the Gilroy High field hockey team routed visiting North Salinas 15-0 in an early season nonleague engagement Tuesday.
After losing his second match of Day 1 at last weekend's Mid Cals Invitational, Gilroy High freshman 106-pounder Jesse Vasquez won eight straight encounters - the eighth gave him a third-place showing. Vasquez, currently ranked No. 3 in the Central Coast Section, according to ccsrank.com, backed up that performance, increased his unbeaten streak to 13 with a 5-0 mark and took home one of five individual titles for the Mustangs at the 48th annual Overfelt Classic on Saturday in San Jose.
