Plumas county’s high school volleyball teams are well into their seasons now and so far Quincy’s girls are doing the best. Quincy stands at a 4-5 record, while Portola is 0-10 and Chester is 0-6, according to scores reported at the time of this writing.
Quincy started last week with a match against Westwood on Sept. 11, losing in the fourth game. Both teams seemed to struggle with serves, which ultimately led to Quincy’s defeat.
“I thought that it was a fairly even match-up between the two teams,” said Quincy’s coach, Chad Hyink. “However, they were better at the service line and they passed the ball pretty well. I think we gave away too many points with serving and hitting errors.”
Later in the week, Quincy traveled to Los Molinos for the school’s annual tournament. Quincy only won one match, against Portola.
Portola started its week off at home with a match against Lassen. Lassen defeated Portola’s girls in three games.
Chester’s volleyball team has had a few bumps so far this season. The team started its season at the Fall River tournament, losing to Redding Christian, Los Molinos and University Prep.
The Lady Volcanoes played their first home game Sept. 10, losing the match to Maxwell in the fourth set. Chester lost the first two games 25-11 and 25-8 before coming back in the third game to win 25-23. The Volcanoes lost the final game 25-16.
