In the history of Major League Baseball only 38 World Series winners have been determined by a Game 7 — and this year’s world champion San Francisco Giants had been there before, courtesy of a heartbreaking 2002 Series in which the Anaheim Angels drubbed them and took the Commissioner’s Trophy with a 6-1 win.

Luckily for the 2014 Giants organization, they had Series MVP Madison Bumgarner on the mound as closer after two days rest from his four-hit shutout in Game 5. Add a comment

With a six-game winning streak under its belt, the Greenville Lady Indians volleyball team (7-13, 4-1) has been resurgent and kept its winning ways going last Tuesday night with a 3-0 (25-14, 25-17, 25-7) win over CORE Butte Charter School of Chico.

The Indians had managed, over the course of the past month and until their game with Westwood, to only allow opponents wins in four sets — and have managed to log a statistical record of 5.1 kills per set, put up 69 total blocks, hit for 169 service aces and average three aces per set.

The defense of the CORE Lynxes was so lacking during the game that Greenville’s normally high dig rate was tamped down a bit, with senior Nikole Machado earning four and fellow senior Brook House and sophomore Valerie Peter fighting for two apiece. Senior Trinity Lincoln was a firecracker on the stops for Greenville as well, with a pair of solo blocks to her credit.

The Feather River College Golden Eagles men’s soccer team took an extremely hard-fought 1-0 loss at home to Lake Tahoe College on Friday, Oct. 24, though it was not necessarily the action on the field per se that many fans were witness to.

Thanks to a history of bad blood and violence between Tahoe head coach Ben Wade’s teams and members of the Golden Eagles squad, FRC administrators were taking no chances; a number of Plumas County Sheriff’s Office deputies and officers from the California Highway Patrol were present for the game and video surveillance of the Tahoe bench was ordered before kickoff.

Before being hired as the mentor of the Tahoe squad, Wade was head coach at Lassen Community College between 2010 and 2013. Add a comment

Fall colors make for spectacular local fishing outings

A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.

—Author unknown

That quote at the top of the column … I know I probably use it too often. But there is just so much truth to that statement that it bears repeating over and over again.

Fishing season is winding down. But fortunately around here it goes out with a bang. Trout tend to “binge feed” in preparation for the cold winter months. Add a comment
