The Anzar High girls volleyball team was 13-0 before losing its final two matches of the recently completed season. While the back-to-back losses were a bit of a downer, there’s no doubt the Hawks will look back at 2022 as a smashing success. That’s because...

For Hollister High girls volleyball, it’s Miller time

Caitlin Miller grew up playing soccer until she found a sport she truly fell in love with—volleyball.  The Hollister High senior started playing volleyball as an eighth-grader in part because her older sister, former Haybalers standout Nicole Miller, played the sport.  “I would always watch my...

Hollister High girls golf team having a fun time on the course

Led by senior standout Julia Torrez, the Hollister High girls golf team is having another solid season on the links.  Torrez shot an even par 36 against Notre Dame-Salinas in the season-opener at Ridgemark, a score that seventh-year coach Molly Orsetti believes is a school...

Former Sobrato, CHS, GHS and Hollister standouts lead resurgent Gavilan College women’s volleyball

After struggling through a one-win season last year, the Gavilan College women’s volleyball team is back on track.  Entering the week, the Rams were 5-3, having won four of their last five matches. They’re doing it with a similar formula and a familiar face in...

Hollister High’s Alex Valencia aims to be a tackling machine

Before the season started, Hollister High senior Alex Valencia set a lofty goal for himself: average 10-plus tackles a game. The 5-foot-11, 190 pound inside linebacker is close, which means he’s having a pretty solid season.   “I’m averaging nine tackles a game so I feel...
