From the Sports Desk; Head to head, one night only

Tonight, a battle will be fought in Greenville. It will be a battle between two high school varsity basketball teams that are playing at the apex of their skill and have amassed the best win-loss records in Plumas County so far this season.

The two teams I am referring to are Quincy and Greenville. With overall records of 14-7 and 12-5, respectively, the Trojans and Indians are leading the way for boys’ basketball in Plumas County. Though they are not in the same league, Quincy being in the Mountain-Valley League and Greenville in the Pioneer-Mountain League, both squads are besting their rivals in a big way. Add a comment

Be careful when handling oversize sturgeon

Hoisting sturgeonQuestion: I’ve seen several pictures over the years of anglers hoisting oversized sturgeon out of the water and dragging them back to the dock for pictures. Isn’t it against the law to treat fish that are to be released this way? How should oversized sturgeon be handled, given that the justifiably proud angler would like to get a picture or two before releasing?

The Chester Lady Volcanoes managed to stave off a 25-point third-quarter push by Portola at home last week to beat the Tigers on a 67-57 final score — and managed to gain a much-needed win just one game before the start of Five-Star League action.

Although Chester led Portola 23-16 going into the locker room at halftime, the Tigers rallied behind junior Alli Ramelli’s 11-point run and a pair of free throws from fellow junior Sophia Selvaggio to take a 33-32 lead in the game. For the next 11 points scored by either team it was neck and neck until the Vols were able to finally pull away in the fourth period for the win.

After the game, Chester junior guard Reanna Trujillo said the win was vastly important for more than one reason.

Accidental catch
Question: I fly fish for calico bass using barbless hooks in the kelp beds off Catalina Island and the coast, and it’s all strictly catch and release. Garibaldi are abundant in this habitat and are very aggressive. When I can see them I can usually avoid catching them. However, rarely one will take my fly inadvertently. Since they are only lightly hooked through the lip, they survive the accidental catch and release. However, it is illegal to “take” garibaldi. Is this considered illegal if caught by accident and then released? How can one avoid catching them?
