Locals win silver — Grace Reego of Granite Bay and Aelish Guinn of Rocklin, playing for Central Cal 'A', earned silver medals at the Olympic Development Program Pacific Coast Championships in Clovis.

"These two girls are the perfect fit for the system of play used to win the gold medal in London last summer and have a bright future, not only with the national team pipeline but in their collegiate careers as well," coach Nathan Varosh said.
