The Quincy High School boys’ basketball team captured three straight league wins to improve to 10-7 overall and 3-1 in the Mid-Valley North standings.

In last week’s home game against Hamilton Jan. 25, junior Keyshawn Johnson led the Quincy Trojans with 21 points, including two 3-pointers and five of seven free throws.

Justin Lusk and Devonte Smith each added nine points on the evening.

The match began slowly, as more than four minutes ticked off the clock without a basket, until Quincy senior Zack Vaughn finally opened the scoring and drew a foul to give Quincy a 3-0 lead.

Vaughn finished the game a perfect 3-for-3 from the free-throw line.

Hamilton quickly answered back and outscored Quincy by three baskets to take a 10-7 lead, but then Quincy turned things back around to take a 13-12 lead by the end of the first quarter.

Thin Ice

I had planned on writing about ice fishing this week. Reports from both Davis and Frenchman indicate angler success has recently been quite good.

But the recent unseasonably warm weather is melting the ice. The ice is still there, but it is thinner and getting more thin with each warm day.

My advice....unless you really know what you are doing, stay off the ice. Falling through thin ice can ruin your entire day.

Hunting exotic ranch animals on private lands?

Q.What is the law in regard to hunting “exotic ranch animals” on private lands? I see an advertisement for hunts (pigs, goats, etc.) with no tags or licenses required. These hunts are offered 24/7 year-round. How can this be legal?

—Monty S.

A.Imported animals that are not native to California and that are put behind a confining fence are not classified as either game or non-game wildlife.
