“The last few weeks, I thought we’ve really been playing well and I thought we were peaking at the right time,” commented Quincy’s coach, Chad Hyink. “We came out well to start the match. I thought the kids were focused and ready to play.”

Quincy came out with high energy and took a small lead toward the start of the first game. Durham came back and the score was back and forth for the majority of the set. Toward the end, Durham pulled away for the win.

Right to search car

Question: I was out fishing at Lake McSwain. A man was there before me but didn’t catch anything. I got lucky and caught two trout right away, then decided to go try out a different spot. I was planning on doing a whole day of fishing and didn’t want the two fishes to spoil, so I gave them to the man that had not caught any.

As I was leaving, a game warden showed up. I told him I caught two but gave them away because I’m heading to a different spot. He wanted to search my car and I let him because I didn’t have anything to hide. After not finding anything, he then told me those two fish count towards my bag limit so I can only catch three more, even if I move to a different spot.

For the fourth year in a row, the Feather River College volleyball team did not disappoint. The Eagles beat College of the Siskiyous and Lassen College last week to end their season with a perfect 10-0 conference record.

The wins mark the fourth year in a row for several achievements by the volleyball team. This is the fourth year in a row FRC went undefeated in conference, won the Golden Valley Conference title and won more than 20 games for the season.

“To me, this year has meant the most,” said FRC’s coach, Sarah Ritchie. “We lost nine sophomores from last year and have a very young team this year. We were the underdog. This team has improved more than any other I’ve seen.”
