Grant makes track meet possible

Thanks to a grant from the Sierra Trailblazers Running Club of Grass Valley, the Lewis Carroll School in Oregon House was able to host a track and field meet for 45 Lewis Carroll students, 45 students from the Dobbins Elementary School, and 25 from the Ananda School in North San Juan.

Besides traditional running events as the mile, the 100- and 400-yard dashes, there were skills events such as a baseball distance throw, basketball free-throw, long jump, and chin-ups competitions.

Trophies for overall winners went to Andreas Carrion Van Rijn, Clio Cappacioli, and Damien Lambert of the Lewis Carroll School, Rachel Brink and McKenna Whiting of the Ananda School, and Bryan Cox and Kara Steele of the Dobbins School. Ironman certificates were given to athletes who completed all events, and ribbons were presented for first, second and third places in all events for both boys and girls.

Nevada Union golfer nails hole-in-one

Nevada Union varsity golfer Spencer Biersdorff, 16, took full advantage of a Father’s Day golf outing Sunday at The Ridge in Auburn by hitting a hole-in-one.

Nevada City’s Biersdorff, who was playing with his father, Todd, pulled out a 7-iron on the 175-yard Par-3 14th hole playing from the blue tees.

Spencer said he was glad his dad was his partner and got to witness the feat, especially on Father’s Day.

“I told him that it would have been nice to let me get one after 37 years of playing golf, but actually it was much sweeter seeing him do it,” Todd said.
