Heading into the Thanksgiving holiday, Chester High School girls’ soccer coach Eric O’Kelley offered many a thank-you as he doubled as master of ceremonies during the annual soccer awards Sunday, Nov. 23.“Each year we do our official soccer awards separate from the event held at the high school. The school ceremony is very abbreviated and tonight is the time when I really get to talk about the team as I hand out awards,” O’Kelley said.

 “For me this is one of the highlights of the season — my opportunity to not talk to the players but to talk to the parents.

Hunting from bike

Question: I will soon be taking off to the mountains to do some mountain quail and tree squirrel hunting. In past years, after arriving at hunting camp, most of my hunting was done on foot and so I couldn’t cover much ground in a day.

Greenville comes within two points, bows to Providence

The Greenville Lady Indians volleyball team fought valiantly and to the very end of its second round Division VI playoff match against Providence Christian last week, but ultimately fell 3-2 (13-25, 13-25, 25-14, 25-19, 17-15) to the Lady Lions.

The last set, in which the Lions eventually came out on top by two points, 17-15, was the toughest by far for the Indians. Head coach Dan Brown said his squad came close to the win, though it was a case of too little too late.
“We started out the run to the end of that set leading 8-7,” Brown said. “From then on it was trading points until 15-15 when they picked up the last two points. It was tough at the end to go out like that. If we had played better in the first two games we would have won that match.”

On offense in the game, Trinity Lincoln and Autumn Brown shared top-rank honors, with Lincoln logging a 23.3 percent kill rating on 43 attempts and 10 kills. Brown did her part by penciling in eight service aces on 32 serves and a mere two errors from the backline.

In other offensive stats, Brook House had seven kills on 35 attempts while Brown and Marissa Willits each had three kills. Valerie Peter, Alex Garcia and Stevie Joseph each made one kill in the match. Lincoln also had four service aces, with Peters, House and Garcia adding one apiece as well.

Defensively, the Indians relied heavily on Peters, with nine digs and three solo blocks, while House put up eight digs and had 17 receptions. Brown was outstanding in the ball-handling department with 21 assists on 127 attempts in the game. Willits led in receptions with 20 and libero Nikole Machado ended the night with six receptions and three digs.

In terms of status in the Pioneer-Mountain League, a handful of Lady Indians led the way; Lincoln led all competition with 127 attack kills and 47 all-purpose blocks. Peters logged 84 digs, while Autumn Brown led with 96 service aces and 304 assists.

The Lady Indians finish the 2014 season with an overall record of 11-15, though they went 7-1 in league action and were tied with Westwood for the conference championship.
