Guard/forward Justus Eaglesmith was named 2013-2014 Pioneer-Mountain League most valuable player. Greenville, which lost lead-scorer Walker Meyers to injury last season, relied upon the 5 foot, 9 inch freshman to finish as co-champions of the league.

Justus averaged 12.8 points and 10.8 rebounds each game. He also led the team in steals, assists, and blocked shots.

“Justus displayed remarkable leadership and floor presence. At times, it was difficult to remember he was only a freshman,” said Greenville coach Russ Crouch. “He is a dean’s-list student and a fine young gentleman off court, as well.”

Fishing Report for the week of 7/4/2014

“There will be days when the fishing is better than one’s most optimistic forecast, others when it is far worse. Either is a gain over just staying home.” –Roderick Haig-Brown

Lake Davis
Lake Davis continues to be the hot spot in Plumas County. Davis delivers with some beautiful rainbows and a double whammy of damsel flies and an evening hatch of Hexagenia. It is a fly fisher’s dream and right now it’s game on.

The damsel flies continue to hatch mid-morning thru early afternoon. On windy days the activity slows down a bunch. In the evening the hex hatch is picking up momentum. Think about that. You can sleep in and still have a full day of some of the best fly fishing to be had anywhere.

By now you are familiar with the name Barbara Competello (was on the winning team the last two Tuesdays.) Well, Lynn Smith and Virgina Luhring carried her to today to win first place. Coming in second was the team of Toni Dick (won chip-in money), Diane Romig and Ann Veruti.

To add to the festivities that surrounded Taylorsville on June 14, a couple members from the Indian Valley Horseshoe Pitchers Association held an unsanctioned tournament, open to all, in Taylorsville.

Sanctioned tournaments are held throughout the spring and summer at the Greenville Campgrounds, which has regulation pits. The tournament that took place in downtown Taylorsville, however, was just for fun.

The tournament had quite a few hard-fought matches that drew a crowd of spectators.

Joe Pearce and his teammate Auston Linford made it to the championship match against Joe’s son, Cody Pearce, and Wayne Lowry. Joe and Linford ended up taking first place in the tournament.
