Porterville High School boys soccer shut out Strathmore 2-0 in a non-league game Friday on the road. 

Ivan Suarez scored the first goal on a nice cross from Kevin Gil while Jimmy Alvarado scored the second.

“It was a good game,” PHS head coach Eddie Gutierrez said in a text. “They made the second half tough for us but we were able to keep the shutout. The defense was solid today and Eli Guzman had some really good saves in goal! Very happy with the performance from the boys!”

Monache High School’s Ana Rivas pitched a one-hit gem in the Marauders’ 13-0 shutout of Orange Cove in a non-league softball game Monday on the road.

Monache places second, PHS boys third

Like they’ve done all season, Monache High School’s Ian Queenan and Aislin Taylor led their respective packs and finished the season strong with individual East Yosemite League titles.

“To have a boys and girls champion is a big deal,” MHS head coach Seth Ishida said. “There’s team in this sport and there’s individual. And the individuals that did everything right, got the reward.” 

The Marauders, along with the Panthers of Porterville, raced in EYL championship race Wednesday at Mission Oak High School in the first traditional format race of the season. 

Tulare Western boys won the league title with a score of 35, Monache placed second with 49, Porterville third with 74, Tulare Union fourth with 80 and Mission Oak fifth with 121. 

In the girls’ race, Western won with 25 points, Monache took second with 52, Mission Oak third with 70 and Union was fourth with 91.

Marauders top Trailblazers 6-3 in opener

Monache High School girls tennis opened the season with a 6-3 win over Golden West at home Wednesday.

Wearing green scrunchies for St. Patrick’s Day — the only appropriate time to ever wear green as a Marauder — Monache picked up the win in doubles with a clean sweep. 

No. 1 Alexis Baeza and Maria Hernandez won 8-3, No. 2 Azalea Gutierrez and Anayeli Ramirez won 8-6, and No. 3 Elvira Gamboa and Denise Fuentes won 8-1.


For the past couple of weeks, Monache High School’s only focus has been on crosstown rival Porterville. 

The two boys’ cross country teams, along with Tulare Western, make up the East Yosemite League’s trio of top teams. But on Tuesday afternoon at Veterans Park, it was the Marauders who came out on top.

Monache swept their rivals, with the boys picking up a 23-36 win and the Marauders’ girls winning by default due to the Panthers only having four girls. 

The two teams will see each other again on Wednesday, March 24, at Mission Oak for the EYL championships. With this win, Monache boys moved to 3-1 on the season and strengthened their chances for at least a share of the title with undefeated Western. Porterville boys are now 2-2 on the season with a slim chance of sharing the EYL title.
