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.

11th Annual Kinkley Klassic Cross Country Golf Tournament

On Wed., Oct. 22, 64 Graeagle men and women teed it up (from strange places, aiming in peculiar directions) for the annual Kinkley Klassic Cross Country Golf Tournament — a four-person team scramble. Each autumn, Graeagle Men’s Golf Association member Gary Kinkley and his band of zany assistants turn Graeagle Meadows Golf Course on its ear. We teed off from the first tee box, aiming for the second green, over a pond, making it a par 3, instead of its usual long par 4. On some holes, we had to watch for cross traffic, hitting across our “fairway.” One hole was played backward to a green beyond the normal tee box, making it a par 6. A meeting and detailed written instructions were required to negotiate the cross country course.

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.

Heart, hard work are hallmarks of 2015 Lady Golden Eagles

Greg Knight
Sports Writer

If its amount of heart is a measurement by which a basketball team can be judged in the preseason, the Feather River College Lady Golden Eagles may be looking at a season of winning both on the court and off.

That heart, which every team strives to achieve in addition to basketball fundamentals, is what head coach Haley White believes her team has in spades going into the 2014-15 season.
