ARC gets booted by CCSF in NorCal championship game

Kameron Schmid, Arts and Culture Editor

From The Current

December 1, 2014

Despite a number of breaks going their way, the American River College Beavers lost to City College of San Francisco 17-14 in the NorCal championship game Saturday, in a heavyweight defensive punchout of a game that featured every form of drama that football can offer.

CCSF kicker Cristian Antezana missed two field goals in the game, but made the one that mattered. It was a 41 yard attempt that sailed through the uprights, giving the Rams a three point lead with only six seconds left for ARC to respond.

ARC running back and kick returner Wadus Parker was tackled at ARC’s 20 yard line just as the sixth second ticked off and the game expired. CCSF stormed the field in jubilation while ARC players deflated.

In his postgame speech to the team, head coach Jon Osterhout, whose first season as head coach also ended on Saturday, expressed regret for not having a better plan on the kickoff return.

His first point, however, was that no matter the outcome, the journey left him proud of his team.

ARC is one of 8 teams battling for the state championship. ARC is 9-1 and ranked #2 in northern California; Butte is 7-3 and ranked #4 in northern California.

Admission will be $10 for adults and $7 for identified students, faculty, staff, senior citizens age 60 and over, and children less than 12 years of age.

Northern California Community College Cross Country Championships – Crystal Springs, Belmont

Men's Cross Country

November 8, 2014

The American River College men’s cross country teams seems to be peaking at just the right time again. The Beavers, who placed their top 6 in the top 13 places at the Crystal Springs Invitational on the NorCal course back on September 26th, topped that performance by placing 6 in the top 8 at the NorCal Championships Saturday. Their score of 23 points easily beat 2nd place Hartnell college’s 63 points. Abdul hamid and Sean Gregg battled NorCal MVP Diego Leon from Hartnell and Jesus Salas of Sequoias for the first two miles, until Hamid and Leon broke away on mile three. On the final tough hill, about 3.3 miles in, Diego Leon surged up the hill and tried to gap Abdul Hamid. Hamid responded and threw in a massive surge of his own just after the hill and put a 25 meter gap on Leon. Hamid, thinking there was only about 400 meters to go continued his surge until he realized how far there was until the finish. Leon closed the gap and eventually outkicked Hamid over the last 200 meters of the 4.19 mile course.. Sean Gregg broke away from Salas over the last two miles to grab third place. The four-headed monster of Patrick Jagerson, Sean Jagerson. David French, and Aidan Schraer started the race in the top 10, then slowly chipped their way past a few NorCal rivals until they cemented their place in the top 8. Jason Morris, the 7th man for the Beavers, was racing in training shoes and didn’t produce his best effort, finishing in 24th place in a time of 22:45.

Beavers vs San Joaquin Delta

October 10, 2014

A sluggish start quickly transformed into an intense match, Friday night at the Beaver Lodge. The Beavers are on a six game winning streak after defeating Delta College Mustangs 3 sets to 1 (15-25, 25-21, 25-23, 25-15).  In the first set the Beavers fell battling not only team errors, but Delta’s offense and serving. Out of the 27 hitting attempts the Beavers ended the first set hitting 0.000% with only completing seven kills the entire set. After losing the first set 15-25, the Beavers head coach Ashlie Frame was able to spark some fire back into the Beavers who came back and won the next three sets. With libero, Kiana Chaney, and outside hitter, Taylor Bunger, aggressive on defense with a combined total of 39 digs, the true spark came from both freshman middles Courtney Macklin and Erianna Williams. Both girls were able to bring not only the energy that was missing the first set, but the kills and blocks needed to dominate the board.  Macklin had a total of 30 hitting attempts, 13 kills, and only 2 errors. Another honorable mention is Williams who made some great plays with a total of 31 hitting attempts, 15 kills, and 4 errors.

Golden Gate Park, SF

September 18, 2014

With the addition of 2 new beavers, the lady beavers had 8 finishers in the Lou Vasquez Invite on Sept. 18th.   They finished a respectable 2nd, behind Hartnell, jumping ahead of Sequoias, Delta and Butte (who were previously ranked ahead of them). 

No surprise, the squad was led by their dominate freshman, Jenica Dodge, who completed the 5K course in 18:54.  Dodge (pictured above) was second despite the wrong turn near the finish at the polo field. 

Laura Cox was the second Beaver finisher in 19th overall with her 20:36.  Jocelyn Stillwell was 2 seconds back for 20th place followed by Freshman Cheyenne Drury (Former El Camino HS).  Drury, a former softball standout debuted in her first ever Cross-Country Race finishing 24th in 20:47. 

Rounding out the top five Beavers was Ashlyn Hardin (former Del Campo HS) freshman, also completed her first collegiate cross-country competition finishing 29th in 21:04.

Coach Powless adds, “the ladies cut a minute off their combined time and brought their 1-5 spread/gap down to just over 2 min, so we are definitely moving in the right direction.  It’s going to be a competitive and exciting season now”.

Fresno Invitational

Fresno Invitational – Woodward Park, Fresno

 September 6, 2014

The 3-time defending California State champions ran well enough on the state championships course for 3rd place out of the 19 teams competing. College of the Canyons won the 4-mile race with a score of 64 points. MtSAC was 2nd with 80 and the Beavers were third with 108. ARC was fresh off a 5-mile race last week and showed the effects late in the race as they faded in the last mile. ARC’s #1 runner was freshman Abdul Hamid, running his first race of the year, in a time of 21:18. He was followed closely by Aidan Schraer (21:22), Sean Jagerson (21:22), Jason Morris (21:40), Patrick Jagerson (21:43), David French (21:44), Sean Gregg (21:44), Galen Fritz (21:49), and Xavier Gaulman (21:51). Only 33 seconds separated the Beavers 1st through 9th runners (and only a 25 second top 5 gap), but with no front runners in the race ARC had no chance of beating Canyons or MtSAC. Next weekend the Beavers are off, followed by a Thursday race for the “B” team in San Francisco and a Friday trip to the SoCal Preview in LA for the “A” team.
