Just because the 2013 successful season is over for Feather River College’s volleyball team, it doesn’t mean the celebrations have halted. Once all the smoke cleared, the team was recognized in abundance for its excellence.

The gym at Greenville High School was abuzz last weekend during the annual John Holland Classic basketball tournament. Eight schools and 16 teams competed for the tournament championship. Whittel’s boys team and Loyalton’s girls team took the tournament.
Greenville’s boys had a pretty good run, with two wins and one loss. The Indians’ girls started strong with a win, but lost their final two games.
Greenville’s boys played Providence on Dec. 5, the first day of the tournament. Their accuracy was spot-on and the Indians won 46-30. The next day Greenville experienced a 53-45 loss to Hayfork. On the final day of the tournament, the Indians overturned Westwood 65-56.
The Feather River College Golden Eagles baseball program has produced more than 20 NCAA Division I baseball players in Head Coach Terry Baumgartner’s six seasons and this year’s team produced two more during the fall early signing period that ended Nov. 20.
FRC is coming off another outstanding season in 2013, which saw the Golden Eagles win their seventh consecutive Golden Valley Conference championship, produce five NCAA Division I players and finish the season at the Final Four in Fresno.
Dinner with donated game
Question: An organization I belong to wants to do a benefit event with donated fish and game meals prepared for the homeless and the hungry. I know that waterfowl regulations are set by the federal government, but wonder if it may be possible to accept donated wild ducks and geese and turn them into a meal for a few hundred. It would be a one-day event to draw attention to a local shelter and help boost the image of us hunter types as charitable people who help to conserve our resources. At some point, someone is going to be over their possession limit to make this happen. Obviously, we won’t charge for the event, and our organization often leaves a generous donation to the facility, but I always thought there was a possession problem. Whaddaya think?

The Indians are set and ready to start shooting some hoops as the school’s two teams prepare for basketball season. The boys’ team has a lot to live up to after a winning season last year. The girls’ team finished with a losing record last season, but hopes to redeem itself this year.
The boys’ team had its best season in more than 10 years last year with a 14-10 record that landed the boys in the second round of playoffs. The team lost four seniors last year, including three starters. Thus, this year’s team only has nine players, as opposed to last year’s 13.
