All four high school football teams in Plumas County came out with wins last weekend. Chester, the only team to host in Plumas County, took down University Prep 54-6.

Greenville finished its regular season with a 46-16 victory over Loyalton. Quincy squeaked out a 54-52 win over Williams in a game that went into triple-overtime.

Portola’s opponent, Los Molinos, forfeited its game due to a chickenpox outbreak to advance the Tigers’ record to 5-4 overall and 2-2 in league.

 

Chester 54, University Prep 6

Before the game, the two teams looked pretty even. Both had a 6-2 record and offensive and defensive stats matched up pretty well. However, Chester showed University Prep how uneven they really were.

Plumas County’s youths are “flipping out,” to use the phrase preferred by Kristina Hardin, owner of Kristina’s Gymnastics. The slogan for the series of youth-oriented gymnastics classes is “A place where kids can flip out,” and Hardin makes sure her students do just that.

Hardin, who has 20 years of gymnastics experience, started gymnastic training at the age of 6. Her parents put her in a class where she excelled and began competing. At 15, Hardin decided to quit the competitive aspect and focus on teaching gymnastics.

California Outdoors for the week of 11/8/2013

Shooting near wetland

Question:I was walking the Yolo Bypass Levee north of I-80 this weekend and saw a group shooting from the levee at some targets that were placed right next to the slough and adjacent wetlands to the east. If waterfowl hunters are required to use nonlead shot to prevent incidental lead poisoning, shouldn’t target shooters firing where their shot will enter the wetland also have to use nonlead shot?

It was also disappointing to see a lot of spent shells, clay target debris and glass left all over the ground. Is there any particular regulation prohibiting this? Thanks.

Portola won its Oct. 24 match against Williams and Greenville beat Loyalton on the same day. Greenville lost its match to Westwood two days before, however. Quincy lost two to Maxwell and Chester lost to Los Molinos, Westwood and Mercy in three games apiece.
