Graeagle Meadows Golf Course

The Graeagle Men’s Club held its last Wednesday playday of the year Nov. 19. All things considered, it was a pretty nice day to play golf. It is believed the 12 hearty men were the only golfers on the course.

Marvin Pierce was the big winner. Not only did he win first place, with a net score of 61, he shot his age with his gross score of 76. He also won a skin. Well done, Marvin. In addition to winning first, he was kind enough to buy a round of drinks. Second and third places went to John Sciborski, with a 64, and Bob McIlroy, who scored 67. Bob also won a skin while Tom Gossett collected two skins.

Afterward, chef Scotty provided a tasty chile con carne, with, of all things, egg rolls and pot stickers. Tiffany was on hand to serve us and a really good time was had by all. Special thanks from everyone to Bob Nunn, Ron Eaton and Jim Adams, who have done the business of arranging games and scoring all year.

If anyone wishes to join us next year, please contact Bryan Hansen at 836-2670. Along with several tournaments throughout the year, the Men’s Club plays every Monday, Wednesday and Friday followed by a little male bonding in the Graeagle Meadows Restaurant as the scores come in. A Friday afternoon game is in the works for those who have day jobs.

Graeagle Meadows Golf Course is in its best condition ever. So, come join us next year for all the fun.

Mt. Huff Golf Course

On Thursday, Nov. 13, the showers ended just in time for the Afternoon Scramble.

The team of Bill McRoberts, Carol Metzdorf, Gary Metzdorf and David Smuts came in first at 3 under par.

The second-place team of Darel Joseph, Margie Joseph and Dick Grace scored 2 under par.

Closest to the pin was won by Bill McRoberts and Dick Grace.

The rain politely held off until the end of the Wednesday Morning Scramble on Nov. 19. The last teams in got drizzled on a bit, but not enough to dampen their spirits.

In first place at 7 under par were team members John Bowen, Dick Grace and Leo Sorosinski.

In second place at 6 under par were Gary Metzdorf, Bill McRoberts and Mike Ingle.

Closest to the pin was won by Don McConnell, and Gary Metzdorf scored the chip-in.

The golfers were not so lucky Nov. 20, when the afternoon scramble was canceled due to rain. But then we need the rain to keep the course green. It is noteworthy that this was the first weather cancel this year.

FRC FIVE-PEAT: Golden Eagles undefeated in GVC

Greg Knight
Sports Writer

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.

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. Add a comment

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.” Add a comment
