KELSEYVILLE — The Kelseyville Knights took a first step toward winning their own tournament with a 49-30 victory over the Calistoga Wildcats in a first-round girls game Thursday at the 48th annual Stokes Invitational in Kelseyville. The Knights (6-2) are scheduled to play Forest Hill in a second-round game Friday at 1 p.m. The tournament runs through Saturday at the Kelseyville High gym. Unlike the standard eight-team boys bracket in the Stokes, this year’s girls bracket has only six teams. Payton Conrad led Kelseyville with 16 points, nine assists and six steals, and Grace Davidson added 21 points and seven rebounds. Ryann Taylor pulled down a team-best 10 rebounds to go along with four points. “We took care of business early,” Kelseyville head coach Jim Hale said. The Kelseyville student body attended the game and Hale said that created a little extra pressure for the young Knights. “We had a tough time getting focused,” he said. “Calistoga pressed us, they got after us a little bit.” The pace of the game was choppy because of a high number of fouls called against the Knights. “Lots of whistles, lots of fouls,” Hale said. “It was hard to get into a rhythm.” Neither team made a 3-pointer.

Kortnie Reynolds’ 14 points powered the Cardinals, who have dropped six in a row. Lilli Hill added seven points. RVC 54, Foresthill 22 At Kelseyville, Caroline Chambers (29 points) and Elizabeth Chambers (17 points) combined to outscore Foresthill all by themselves in first-round Stokes action. In other girls non-league action Thursday: Rodriguez 73, Middletown 39 At Middletown, Rodriguez High School of Fairfield used a 25-7 third quarter to pull away from the Middletown Mustangs. “Speed, speed, speed, we knew what we were getting ourselves into,” Middletown head coach Anthony Bazzano said of the Rodriguez team. “We actually played an excellent second quarter. I thought we were in a position to make a game out of it.” Middletown trailed 30-20 at halftime. Hanna Morris led the Mustangs with 15 points, including all three of the Mustangs’ 3-pointers. Kassi Agapoff, Abbey Brown and Emily Santiago added five points apiece. “We’ve got to move on,” Bazzano said of his team’s 1-5 start. “We’ve got two home games next week (Tuesday against Piner and Friday against San Rafael).” In the junior varsity game, Jessica Pollack’s three-point play with 18 seconds remaining lifted Middletown to a 46-45 win. The Mustangs (4-2) rallied from a 15-point deficit to pull out the victory. Olivia Kucer scored nine points for Middletown and Brie Alves added eight. The Mustangs are home Tuesday to play Piner. Analy 49, Lower Lake 21 At Sebastopol, the Analy Tigers outscored Lower Lake 15-2 in the second quarter to open up a 24-9 halftime lead and went on to rout the Trojans in non-league action. Lower Lake is now 2-7 on the season. The Trojans play Rio Americano High School on Saturday at Ygnacio Valley High School in Concord. On Monday, Lower Lake plays El Molino in Forestville. In JV action, the Analy Tigers beat Lower Lake 58-24. The Trojans (4-2) scored as many points in the fourth quarter (12) as it did in the first three quarters combined. “”We really just had an off night altogether,” Lower Lake coach Shannon Tubbs said. Kim Bautista’s 11 points paced the Trojans. Sonja Desano added seven.

Opponents of a housing community proposed for West Coyote Hills have been dealt another setback by a state court that denied their appeal to overturn Fullerton’s approval of constructing up to 760 homes in the 510 acres of hillsides and former oil fields. But they are optimistic as state and private funding has given the city money to buy parcels from the developer and chip away at how many homes will be built. Another $20 million was locked down in the recent state budget, bring the total raised by the city to $26 million. Those wanting to keep all of West Coyote Hills undeveloped are hoping these donations can create snowball effect that will enable the city to acquire the entire area for open space. The 510 acres were appraised at $150 million in 2016.  “We made tremendous progress,” said Angela Lindstrom, board president of Friends of Coyote Hills which opposes the development. “This is just the beginning of the fundraising.” #gallery-1472957-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1472957-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1472957-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1472957-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ A bridge crosses over Gilbert Street to the West Coyote Hills oil field in Fullerton. (Register file photo) Preservationists for years have fought against housing projects in the area they call the last remaining natural open space in north Orange County. In 2011, the Fullerton City Council approved the development proposed by Pacific Coast Homes, Chevron’s home building company. Chevron owns the land once used as an oil field. But in 2012, Fullerton voters struck down a development agreement. Then, in 2015, the city adopted a plan to divide the development area into neighborhoods, allowing the the city and preservationists to buy parcels for preservation while letting the development project go forward. But Friends of Coyote Hills sued the city soon after, saying the 2012 referendum should have prevented the project from going forward. The preservationist group lost its lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court in 2016, with the court saying the referendum didn’t do anything to change the City Council’s approval of the project in 2011. The appellate court’s decision announced late last week agreed with the superior court’s ruling. “The elimination of a development agreement does not, by itself, stop a project,” the court said in its ruling. “If you want to stop a project, you have to attack the (environmental impact report), the general plan, the specific plan or the zoning laws that permit that project.” Bob Hayden, chairman of Open Coyote Hills which has supported the project, praised the ruling. “Judges succinctly and clearly indicated what the referendum means.” Lindstrom said she was disappointed by the ruling, saying the referendum vote by residents should have been interpreted as the reversal of the previous development approvals. Her group is deciding whether to appeal the case to the California Supreme Court. However, Lindstrom remains optimistic more funding can be secured. A state budget bill, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in September, set aside $15 million to help with the purchase of the land, after an amendment from Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva (D-Fullerton). Proposition 68 passed in June also allocated nearly $5 million. Fullerton has also secured more than $6 million in other state and private grants, city spokesman Stephen Hale said in an e-mail. With the funding secured, the city has likely met its initial goal to raise enough money to buy two neighborhoods adjacent to the Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve, cutting 76 units from the project.
