An errant throw to first from the Yuba City High third baseman while fielding a bunt by Marysville’s Liberty Quillin allowed Birdie Galaviz to score all the way from first base and give Marysville a 4-3 win over Yuba City Wednesday.

Galaviz pitched all seven innings giving up two earned runs on nine hits. She struck out four Honkers. Marysville (3-0) has next week off for spring break and will return to action on April 13 to host Chico at 4 p.m.  


Girls soccer

Pl. Valley 7, Sutter 0

Facing a step up in competition, the Sutter High girls soccer team fell at home to Pleasant Valley, 7-0 Wednesday. 

It was the second loss in as many years to the Vikings following a 6-0 defeat to the upper division foe out of Chico in 2019 at the Nevada Union tournament. 

“They’re a great team and possessed the ball for most of the game,” said Sutter coach Jeff Stanhope. “They’re a junior and senior team.”

Sutter (3-1) has just one senior starter and is down to essentially its fourth string goalkeeper following injuries to Malena Childers and Mackenzie Ritner. 

Childers had 20 saves prior to getting injured to PV, Stanhope said. 

“It was a learning lesson for us and a great opportunity,” said Stanhope on facing PV. 

Sutter travels to Las Plumas for a 3:30 p.m. scheduled game today (Thursday). 



Colfax 6, Sutter 5 

Sutter High dropped a home matchup against Colfax on Wednesday 6-5. Joey Diaz led the way for the Huskies on offense going 1-for-3 with two RBI. Justin Matsui and Connor Babler both went 2-for-3 and each drove in one run.

Sutter (1-3) will next play on Monday at 10 a.m. against Las Plumas as part of a spring break tournament.
