This week in RP sports

The new year is in full swing, which means winter sports galore. Basketball teams for Rancho, Credo and Technology High Schools are in league play, soccer season for the Cougars is chugging along, with the wrestling team continuing their season. Here’s what happened over the last week in Rohnert Park.

Rancho Cotate Men’s Basketball: Entering Tues. night’s game against El Molino, the Cougars were 9-11 and currently riding a three-game losing streak. They suffered a 1-point loss to Sonoma Academy, 55-54, a 68-44 loss to Healdsburg and a 65-41 loss to Maria Carrillo. Healdsburg and Carrillo are the top two teams in the conference record wise, so this was a good test for the boys. Coming into Wednesday night’s game against El Molino, the Cougars were tied for third place in league with the Ukiah Wildcats.

Rancho Cotate Women’s Basketball: After an up and down start the ladies are starting to roll. They are 4-0 in the North Bay League and coming off a great win against the Pumas of Maria Carrillo. Not only did they beat the Pumas, they also beat De Anza High School, 68-25. The ladies extended their winning streak to six games with a victory over El Molino High School, 49-45. They also improved to 5-0 in league play.

Rancho Cotate Men’s Soccer: The boys have a Thurs. night home game against the Windsor Jaguars. The Cougars enter the game with a 1-6 record and are taking on a team who is 7-3-2 on the season. The boys will look to get their season on track with a big-time win. After that they play the Montgomery Vikings Jan. 28. That game starts at 6 p.m.

Rancho Cotate Women’s Soccer: The women are 4-6-1 after back to back league victories. They beat El Molino 1-0 and Healdsburg 9-0. The ladies were scheduled to play Elsie Allen on Wed., but Elsie Allen forfeited, so they had a home game against Ukiah instead.

Rancho Cotate Men’s Wrestling: The men are 2-0 on the season after a 60-12 victory over El Molino. The boys had a Wed. night game against Elsie Allen High School which started at 6 p.m. 

Rancho Cotate Women’s Wrestling: The women are the flip side of the men. They are 0-2 after a 12-6 loss against El Molino. Like the men, they also had a Wed. night bout against the Lobos of Elsie Allen.

Credo High School Men’s Basketball: After starting off hot, the men have lost five of their last six games to fall to 9-8 on the season. Although some of those losses have been against top level competition like Casa Grande High School. The flip side though is, two of those are league losses, so Tues. night’s game against St. Vincent was important for the men’s overall season.

Credo High School Women’s Basketball: The women are 6-9 and 1-1 in league play through 15 games this season. The ladies are coming off a 54-31 victory against Roseland University Prep. Tues. night’s game against St. Vincent De Paul High School is another test for the Gryphon. Much like the men, most of their losses have been against really good teams who are bigger schools than them. 

After being down 13-7 after the first quarter, the women stormed back to beat St Vincent 61-55. This win moved the Gryphon to 2-1 in league play and 7-9 on the season overall. The Gryphon were led by Sophomore Guard Lhasa Gray, Junior Captain Katrina Yardley and Senior Forward Julia Anderson. Gray scored 19 points for the Gryphon, Yardley added 16 and Anderson netted 12.

Technology High School Men’s Basketball: With just eight games left and sitting at 2-9, the men are hoping to finish out the season strong in league play. Though the record isn’t pretty, the men have played well at times and have been competitive for quarters or even halves. They just can’t consistently be good. Tues. was good night for the Titans. They defeated Roseland Collegiate Prep 47-40 to move to 3-9 on the season.

Technology High School Women’s Basketball: The women are 4-9 on the season and continue building for next season and the season after that. This is a team loaded with freshman and sophomores playing big minutes. As Coach Carlos Vasquez said, he likes his team and knows they will be good for the next couple of seasons because of the young talent they have.
