Two of Quincy High School’s track athletes, Shawn Hughes and Rachel Hanna, made it all the way to the Northern Section California Interscholastic Federation’s final meet of the year at West Valley High School in Cottonwood on May 24.
Competition was fierce with 46 teams in total registered at the meet. Of Quincy’s team, only Hughes and Hanna were eligible to continue on this far.
Hughes continued his record of athletic excellence at the championship meet by claiming the silver in discus. Hughes threw the discus 150 feet, 1 inch for second place. Hughes missed the gold by 6 inches and a new Quincy High record by 9 inches.
The third annual Good Grief Golf Tournament returns to Bailey Creek on Saturday, June 8. Registration starts at 8 a.m. with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.
The tournament is being organized by Sierra Hospice, and proceeds go to Sierra Hospice’s programs. Sierra Hospice is a volunteer and community based organization that provides end-of-life aid and support to patients and families.
The cost is $120 per player and includes 18 holes and lunch. Additional lunch tickets are available for $15. Registered golfers are also eligible for a $100 door prize drawing.
In an effort to raise money, the Plumas-Eureka State Park Association is targeting golfers. The new method the association is using for fundraising is in the form of coupons.
A golf savings package is now available for $75 from the state park association. The coupon book includes a total of $515 in savings.
Scouting with scuba
Question: Is there any regulation prohibiting a photographer with scuba gear from also scouting out large abalone for a regulation-compliant abalone diver to take? Thanks in advance, and for all you do.
