The Chester Volcanoes football squad took a hard playoff loss on the chin last Friday night as they fell 19-14 to the Etna Lions in the first round of the CIF Northern Section Division V playoffs.

In terms of scoring for the Vols, it was all Jeremiah White as he rumbled in for a pair of touchdowns on the night in the second and third quarters of the game.

FRC FIVE-PEAT: Golden Eagles undefeated in GVC

The number five has many great connotations throughout the ages: There were five branches hanging off the proverbial Tree of Life in Adam and Eve’s backyard; in the Hebrew tradition of mysticism, five is the numerical value of the letter “He,” which represents the principle of excellence.

It wasn’t metaphysical, however, when the Lady Golden Eagles volleyball team extended its tradition of excellence Wednesday, Nov. 12, by edging toward a fifth Golden Valley Conference championship in a row with a 3-0 (25-10, 25-12, 25-18) win over Shasta at home — and seized the “five-peat” crown two days later with a 3-1 win over Lassen in Susanville.

When Quincy High School basketball starts Dec. 1 against the North Tahoe Lakers, head coach Michael Woodlee may very well be mentoring one of the toughest squads to ever take the court in Trojan red and white.

To that end, enter senior Brady Rick.

Rick, a three-year starter for Quincy, is being groomed as a team leader for the 2014-15 season. Last year he led the team in points per game with 22 and rebounds per game with 10.5.

“Rick was also ranked third in scoring in the CIF Northern Section, fifth in rebounds, No. 1 in defensive rebounds (and) was the top free-throw shooter as far as percentages go at 82 percent,” Woodlee said. “And, he was voted co-MVP of the Mid-Valley League.”

Don’t worry, be happy
Soccer (for some) is life, and life (for millions) is futbol.

That said, a turn of events this season in Plumas County has proven that the most communal of all competition is leading the way for us in terms of love, fandom, statistics and the shot for glory that is always sought — as the battle wanes toward the end of the sweat-on-sweat touch needed to win here in Quincy.
