Basketball continues on…with a twist!

March 4, 2012 - The Men's team started it out with a great win over Yuba College on Friday night…and the Women followed that up with a fantastic win against Modesto JC on Saturday night. So, as you would imagine, both teams are moving on to the next round.

The Women will be traveling to Sierra College (in Rocklin) for their game this Wednesday evening (March 6). The Sierra Wolverines are seeded #3 and have a win/loss record of 22-7. Our lady Renegades will have their hands full, but I'm confident that a Renegade can conquer a Wolverine.

Now…here's the twist I spoke of…

There was a huge upset over the weekend in Fresno…so as luck may have it, Ohlone will be hosting the next game…this Wednesday evening at 7:00pm. The Ohlone Men's team will be playing against a very confident Merritt College, who have an overall record of 16-12.

General admission ticket prices for Wednesday's game at Ohlone have been reduced by $2 as an added bonus to bring the family and friends.

  • General Admission: $8
  • Students, Faculty, and Staff with ID: $5
  • Children under 12: $5
  • Seniors 60 and over: $5

I hope to see you all there wearing your Green and Gold!! Go Renegades!
