CLOVERDALE REVEILLE, CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA 4)' WEDNESDAY, NOV. 3, 2010 -- Page 7 Feature Athletes Of The Week: Bailey Stewart, Karsyn Stewart, Ashley Delfino and Ashlyn Delfin( Twins in Sports: Bailey and Karsyn Stewart Ashley and Ashlyn Delfino By Charlie Delfino This week we are going to take a look at two sets of twins that have been playing sports in Cloverdale for many years. It used to be that if you were a twin it was something unique and fairly uncommon. These days there are more and more twins around due to creative and unique ways women seek help to have chil- dren. There is a special bond be- tween twins; they can communicate to each other without even saying a word. Imagine how helpful this can be in sports, in an atmosphere where communication can be every- thing to the success of a team. We will be featuring 7th graders Bailey and Karsyn Stewart and Ash- ley and Ashlyn Delfino. These four athletes just completed two very successful seasons as they were part of the pennant winning champion- ship team in 7th grade basketball where they lost only one game all year and were also on the champi- onship soccer team that also had only one loss. Bailey is all smiles all the time, she plays point guard in basketball and midfield on the soccer team. Her favorite number is 11, she loves pizza and tater tot casserole, her fa- vorite subject in school is social studies and math, and her favorite pro athlete is S.F. Giants Buster Po- sey. Her favorite C.H.S. athletes are Casey Berry, Jared Domenichelli, and Madison Stewart. Bailey plans on playing soccer, basketball, and either track or softball in high school. Her personal goal is to work hard and get better in all sports. Karsyn is a hard working, funda- mentally sound athlete who is a post in basketball and a midfielder on the soccer team. Her favorite num- ber is 24, she loves tortellini and nacho cheese, her favorite C.H.S. athlete was Casey Berry, and she plans on playing soccer, basketball and track in high school. Karsyn's personal goal is to make her shots better in both basketball and soccer. Ashley is a fast, hard nosed de- fender both on the court and out on the field. She plays point guard in basketball and is a defender on the soccer team. Her favorite numbers are 4 and 21, she loves pizza, and her favorite subject in school is spelling. Her favorite pro athlete is Barry Bonds. Ashley plans on playing soc- cer, basketball, and softball in high- school. Her personal goal is to score 21 points in a game.

(Reuser Business Pa~)_ I Lady Eagles soccer ends regular season On Tuesday, Oct. 26, the Upper Lake Cougars travelled to Clover- dale and the Eagles girls soccer team came away with a 3 - 0 victory. The Eagles dominated all facets of the game, especially on defense. Lead defenders were Gabi Dela- gnes, Sami Acevedo, Mari Lopez, Hannah Faso, Madison Stewart, and goalie Lilianna Gomez. The Eagles recorded their 7th shutout of the season. Sami had two Cloverdale goals, while Sara Gambetta knocked in her team leading 19th goal. The win en- sured the Eagles a second place fin- ish in league. On a wet Thursday, Oct. 28, the St. Vincent Mustangs came to town for the final game of the regular season. The Mustangs are perhaps the stron- gest team in division 3. This was an emotionally charged game, due to the fact that it was also senior night for Cloverdale's five senior girls. The first half was played to a 0 - 0 tie and was led by the inspirational play of the five seniors, Ciara, Bren- da, Sara, Gabi and Mari. Ten min- utes into the 2nd half, the Eagles were called for a controversial pen- alty just outside the box. The Mus- The girls soccer team celebrated senior night and honored from left to right Gabi Delagnes, Sara Gambetta, Mary Cruz Lopez, Ciara Palmer and Brenda Suarez. tangs took the indirect kick and scored the games first goal. St. Vin- cent scored five minutes later and the game ended 2 to 0. Even though the girls lost this game, the effort that was displayed showed their readiness for the up- coming playoffs. The night be- longed to the five seniors and after the game there was an emotional celebration led by Coach Stewart to honor these players. With the lead- ership of these five, four year varsi- ty soccer players, the lady Eagles have 38 wins thus far in their career. This is in contrast to the one win season of the team prior. "Normally, senior night is good bye, but this year, it is see you to- morrow at practice to get ready for playoffs" said Coach Stewart. The Lady Eagles were seeded 4th out of 12 teams and are awarded a first round bye and then a home game on Saturday, Nov. 6 with time to be announced. -Mike Gambetta Fort Bragg is no fun for Cloverdale Eagles By Charlie Delfino The Eagles Varsity Football team traveled the scenic yet windy road to Fort Bragg in hopes of a major upset. Instead, the Eagles found themselves upset. Angry with how they played, the outcome of the game, and the fact that they lost Se- nior quarterback Beau Gastineau to an injury during the 2nd quarter of Friday nights showdown. The hopes were dashed on the very first kickoff of the game as Fort Bragg's Cody Ryden ran it back 85 yards for a touchdown. It would be one of Ryens five touchdowns on the night including an 80 yard punt return for a score later on in the game. Cloverdale was down 14-0 in the 1st quarter and 27-0 at the half. The entire 2nd half the Eagles held the Timberwolves scoreless on of- fense and only gave up the 80 yard punt return. Offensively the Eagles struggled and couldn't get on the board all game. Once Gastineau was injured, Senior Brett Southard stepped up and moved the team up and down the field but was unable to orchestrate a scoring drive. Victor Hare had a nice night again rushing for 119 yards on 23 carries, punted the ball five times for 180 yards, and had an interception. De- fensively the Eagles were led by leading tacklers Alex Navarro 12, Joey Missamore and Southard 11, and 10 tackles by Arley Trevizo and Andrew Goebel. Vincent Cordova blocked a pass, Trevizo recovered an Eagle fumble, and Jesus Beltran had a really nice tackle. The Eagles have two more games remaining on the schedule, the last home game of the year on Nov. 5 against Upper Lake and an away game at St. Vincent on Nov. 12. Cross Country teams host meet at Asti On Wednesday, Oct. 27, Willits, St. Vincent, Upper Lake and Point Arena ran against the Eagle Cross Country Team at Asti Winery. Cloverdale scored against Willits and St. Vincent scored against Point Arena with Upper Lake running uncontested. The Willits boys' team (Willits is undefeated in league) defeated the local boys by a competitive score of 24 to 31. Cloverdale top runners were twins Matt and Brian Wells (7th & 8th) in a 31 runner field, with a time of 19:05 and 19:08 with Roger Martinez, 9th in 19:14 and Darin Marcucci, 10th in 19:16, and Martin Sanchez, 13th in a time of 19:44. The girls' team was dominant in that Cloverdale had four girls finish in the top five. Whitney Edens won the race m a time of 22.21, with Yari Sanchez second in 22.37, Beth Marrone third in 23.44 and Brittany Vander- griff fifth in 25.24. Yanely Sanchez completed the team scoring by finishing 15th in a time of 30.40. Angel Echols was 16th in a time of 31:31. The junior varsity team was led by Joe Carillo who ran a time of 16:21, one second over the course record. With the course soft in places, because of the rain, this is a remarkable time. Joe will make his assault on the four year 16:20 mark at the CMC Championship Meet on Nov. 20.
