Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014 5C Lady Eagles lose two James Wilson Sports Editor The Feather River College women's basketball team started its conference play last week with two games, and two losses. The Lady Eagles started conference play with an away game at College of the Redwoods on Jan. 8, losing 98-68. On Jan. 11, the Eagles lost at home to Shasta College 66-55. College of the Redwoods dominated the first half, leading 55-27 at the half. FRC kept pace with the Corsairs in the second half, but were too far behind at that point. Amy Yeager was the top scorer for FRC with 17 points. Yeager made five three-pointers and one two-pointer. Ashley Duke and Natasha Reel scored 12 points apiece. Against Shasta, it looked like the Lady Eagles would take the win. The Eagles had a nine-point lead at halftime, but let it slip away toward the beginning of the second half. Shasta took the lead at 48-47 and started racking up the points. FRC lost its momentum and let it slip past them. "We played the best basketball we have played all year in the first half," commented FRC coach Haley Feather River College's Amy Yeager maneuvers the ball past her opponents duringthe Eagles' game against Shasta on Jan. 11.

Then it seemed as though that was good enough and we came out the second half flat and content." Yeager was once again the team's high scorer with 17 points. Ashley Hibbard scored 15. "Shasta is a solid team and they took our lack of energy and focus and made it work in their favor," added White. FRC travels to SusanviUe on Jan. 15 to take on Lassen College. The Eagles will then host College of the Siskiyous on Jan. 18 at 5:30 p.m. UPCOMING GAMES FRC Men's Basketball 1/15 at Lassen 7:30p 1/18 Siskiyous 7:30p 1/22 Butte 7:30p Chester Boy's Basketball 1/15 Westwood 7p 1/17 at Reading Chr 7:30p 1/21 Univ Prep 7p Greenville Boy's Basketball 1/21 at Westwood 7p Portola Boy's Basketball 1/17 Williams 7p 1/21 Biggs 7p 1/21 at University Prep 6p Quincy Boy's Basketball Greenville Girl's Basketball 1/17 Maxwell 7:30p 1/21 atWestwood 5:30p 1/21 Biggs 7:30p Portola Girl's Basketball 1/17 Williams 5p FRC Women's Basketball 1/21 Biggs 6p 1/15 at Lassen 5:30p 1/18 Siskiyous 5:30p Quincy Girl's Basketball 1/22 Butte 5:30p 1/17 at Biggs 6p Chester Girl's Basketball Coaches: To report scores, email 1/15 Westwood 5:30p 1/16 at Redding Chr 6p Schedules are subject to change. Backcountry film fest returns James Wilson Sports Editor Selections from the Winter Wildlands Backcountry Film Festival will return to the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy for the third year in a row Jan. 23. In the previous two years the selection has traveled to Quincy, both shows sold out. The success of previous years' shows prompted Feather River College's Outdoor Recreation Leadership program to hold the fundraiser again this year. In addition to ticket sales ($8 per adult and $3 per student), libations and treats will be available in the theatre's lobby prior to the show. The ORL department will also hold a drawing. One lucky winner will walk away with a brand new pair of Chi skis, crafted by Dana Fenimore, of Genesee. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 7 p.m. The Winter Wildlands Alliance, an organization that aims to protect winter wildlands for snow sport enthusiasts, started the Backcountry Film Festival nine years ago in Boise, Idaho. This year selections from the latest festival will be seen in more than 100 towns and cities across the nation. Quincy's showing will be one of only six showings in California. Last year, seven films were screened at the showing, while this year there will be 10. Each film is geared toward a broader audience, so people of all sorts can enjoy the presentation. The film that won Best of Festival is "Valhalla," from Sweetgrass Productions. The film explores rediscovering the freedom of youth through backcountry skiing and features breathtaking cinematography of British Columbia and Alaska. "Bolton Valley" won Best Conservation Film with the touching story of a small community fighting to save its ski area. The film "Bigger, Braver" by Luc Mehl won Best Short for its inside look at Erica Madison's preparation to embark on a backcountry ski trip from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Skagway, Alaska. Seven other films range in filming location, artistic style and plot. The variety of films presented help make the festival's selections well-rounded and entertaining. The festival is p,ut on by the ORL department with the Support from Plumas Arts and the Feather River College Foundation. This is one of the ORL program's largest fundraisers of the year.
