McDonald, Tudor, Cayton, Wooten are All-American candidates

Kenny Wooten has a chance to make San Joaquin County history. Wooten, a 6-foot-8 forward and center for the Manteca boys basketball team, is on the list of candidates (and yes, it’s an impossibly long list, even from California alone, not counting the other 49 states) for the 2016 McDonald’s All-American boys game. Wooten is [...]

To get there, Sierra (9-5) must beat host Chowchilla (12-2), the Central Section Division IV champion, which beat Los Angeles-Fairfax 28-16 in their [...]

By the Numbers: Sierra vs. Sutter

Sierra and Sutter high schools have their differences. Sierra is a school of 1,300-plus, in Manteca, in San Joaquin County, while Sutter, in the same town and county of the school name, has between 600-700 students. The Timberwolves football team run shotgun formations, while the Huskies use the Wing-T. Most striking, though, is just the [...]

Countdown to Tipoff: Girls No. 1 – Aquira DeCosta

Sorting through the varied collegiate-caliber stars of the St. Mary’s girls basketball team, a near certain national No. 1, and ranking them is immensely difficult. Aquira DeCosta, a 6-foot-2 sophomore, was guaranteed to be toward the top. What made her No. 1, though, is her extreme versatility given her height and position, and the matchup [...]

Countdown to Tipoff: Boys No. 1 – Kenny Wooten

My top returning boys basketball player in The Record’s coverage area wasn’t on the court for a single play in 2014-15. But, given what he’s proven, and what his potential is, he’s still No. 1. Kenny Wooten played quite well as a Stagg High sophomore on varsity, with eight points, eight rebounds and five blocks [...]

Sierra’s Player of the Game: Scott Teicheira

Scott Teicheira’s will and skill set are the epitome of the 2015 Sierra football team. Teicheira, a starting center and linebacker for the Timberwolves, isn’t built like a mountain like some other prominent football players in the area. No, the senior Teicheira is 5-foot-7, and though he’s strong, earns everything he gets. Teicheira was on [...]
