Placer High ousts River City tennis

From River City
High School

After playoff wins over Marysville, Colfax, and Escalon, the 2013 tennis season ended for the River City High School Tennis Team with a 7 to 2 defeat against Placer in the final of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division III team championships on May 17.  The Raiders received wins from Lily He, 6-1,3-6,7-5 at #2 girls singles, and the #2 girls doubles team of Lilly Tong and Nicole Melido, 7-5,6-0.

“We came out a little flat, with not enough energy for such an important match,” said RCHS Coach Dave Brooks.  “I don’t think we were overwhelmed by the occasion, playing in the Section final, but I think we were just a little too low on fuel after the big wins over Colfax in the quarterfinals and Escalon in the semis.  We battled back in some matches, but Placer was too strong today.  It was a great season for RC Tennis, and this was the furthest we’ve gone in the playoffs since 2004.”

The Raiders finished the year 11 and 1 in the Sierra Valley Conference to secure the team’s 17th league championship in the past 18 seasons, and 23-2 overall.

Learn to row at the port next Saturday

FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER —

Learn to row (do what you see those folks in skinny boats doing at the Port of West Sacramento). The local River City Rowing Club is hosting a free “learn to row day” and health fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat, June 1, at the boathouse on the port. Experience rowing on the water, and learn to use a rowing machine the correct way. No experience necessary.

Bring a water bottle, socks, hat, sunscreen and sunglasses. Wear clothing that isn’t too loose fitting, so it doesn’t get caught in the moving seat in the boat. Open to those age 13+; kids under 18 will need a parent present to sign a waiver. For information, visit www.rivercityrowing.org.
