Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015 lC SPORTS AND RECREATION Lady Vols triumph at last Greg Knight Sports Writer sports@plumasnews.corn The Chester Lady Volcanoes managed to stave off a 25-point third-quarter push by Portola at home last week to beat the Tigers on a 67-57 final score -- and managed to gain a much-needed win just one game before the start of Five-Star League action. Although Chester led Portola 23-16 going into the locker room at halftime, the Tigers rallied behind junior Alli Ramelli's !l-point run and a pair of free throws from fenow junior Sophia Selvaggio to take a 33-32 lead in the game. For the next 11 points scored by either team it was neck and neck until the Vols were able to finally pull away in the fourth period for the win. After the game, Chester junior guard Reanna Trujillo said the win was vastly important for more than one reason. "In the last few games we played we have not done so well, so we finally played together as a team and wanted to win," Trujillo said. "We wanted to win this game in memory of a friend, It was a really big game for us." Sophomore Paige Reed said the win will give the Vols confidence as they head into Five-Star League action this week. "It was a very important win for us because I think it gave us the confidence to win more games in thefuture, especially as we head into league," Reed said. "We lost our play for a little bit in the third period, but we regained our composure and went for the win." Trujillo led Chester in scoring with 20 points, which included a nine-of-10 showing from the free-throw line after being the target of Lady Tiger fouls in the fourth period, Senior Rebecca Branch followed up with 13 points and Reed added 12 of her own. Senior Sara Gannon was also in double digits with 10. Antonia Marro and Lanee Hansen each scored four and Elizabeth Berenzak penciled in a deuce. On the Portola side of the bench, Ramelli finished with 23 off nine buckets and four three throws. Abbi Folchi ended the evening with 11 points. The quartet of Caitlyn Chart, Destiny Weaver, Meg Maddalena and Alicia Silva each posted four, with Selvaggio and Erin Sheridan adding three. The win gives Chester a 4-10 record overall and leaves Portola sitting at 5-10 so far this season. This Friday evening will see the Lady Vols head to Redding Christian. Tip-off in that game is set for 6 p.m, The Lady Tigers will host Biggs on Friday, with action starting at 5:30 p.m. Girls' basketball Loyalton 64, Greenville 23 The Lady Indians took a shellacking from Loyalton last week as the Lady Grizzlies See Chester, page 3C Chester's Reanna Trujillo (No. 15) drives around Portola's Alli Ramelli in Chester last week.

In the Northern Section, schools with an enrollment of more than 150 students are required to play ll-man football. At Los Molinos, the enrollment is 189 students -- more than 25 percent over the limit. Los Molinos has struggled for the better part of a decade to consistently field a football team. As a result, the school recently approached athletic directors at the Northern Section's eight-man schools, including Greenville High School to test the waters on the issue. For the most part, the 14 other schools are willing to make an exception for Los Molinos, at least in 2015. Those signs of support were stated during a Monday, Jan. 12, meeting in Dunsmuir. Even so, Los Molinos must file a formal request by Feb. 15 which would clear the way for athletic directors to make a recommendation to Northern Section's executives as early as March 2. Greenville athletic director Michael Chelotti said he initially had reservations about allowing Los Molinos to play with smaller schools, though, at the same time, he said is willing to waive the enrollment requirement for Los Molinos only as an experiment in 2015. If things work out, he said he would then "consider a two-year waiver in 2016." Hayfork Athletic Director and football coach Randy Harrison called it "a pilot program kind of deal.", Chelotti asked Harrison and the other athletic directors to use caution, however, when allowing other programs, notably Weed High School, to make the switch to eight-man football. "(Those) schools have access to more students and possibly more talent than smaller schools," Chelotti said. "They also have access to better training equipment."

Well, OK, not Raiders fans. You have other problems to worry about. Problems like whether your team will be able to hire a defensive coordinator in time for it to count next season, or maybe whether new quarterback coach Todd Downing is really going to make an impact with Derek Carr's attempt to get past a rookie season record of three wins in 16 games, a 76.6 QB rating and the 12 INTs he threw. Anyway, back to Seattle and the crow sandwich I may need to toast up with a nice hot side of clam chowder (New England style, the white stuff, of course). If the Seahawks cash in their chips and head home from Arizona on Sundaywith just an NFC ring for their troubles, it will be one of the gloomiest days in (my life) franchise history. The improbable NFC championship win over Green Bay was, even for a dyed-in-the-green-and-blue See Sports Desk, page 2C '06 HONDA ACCORD EX '07 CHEVY SILVERADO 2500 '12 CADILLAC CTS '13 TOYOTA RAV-4 .
