Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010 3C Chester boys beat Portola Shannon Morrow Sports Editor sports@plu The Chester High School boys' basketball team is now in the driver's seat in the Feather River League, after defeating Portola 58-48 last Friday night, Jan. 29. The victory moved Chester to 3-0 in league. Portola and Loyalton each sit with 2-1 league records. Chester led Portola the en- tire game. After jumping out to a 10-0 advantage, the Vol- canoes led 16-7 at the end of the first quarter and 29-15 at half time. "It kind of surprised me," said Chester coach Dale Keefer. "I expected a lot more resistance." Portola outscored Chester 15-13 in the third quarter and 18-16 in the final period, but the Volcanoes maintained a 10-point lead to the end. David Ryn, Chester's se- nior forward, had a huge night with 22 points and 14 rebounds. "He really stepped it up," said Keefer. Chester's defense was also impressive, as the Volcanoes outrebounded the Tigers and limited Portola's top scorers to single digits. "We handled them on the boards pretty well, keeping Rodriguez at bay," said Keefer. "We also kept Robin- son at bay." Chad Durkin was Chester's other player to earn a double- double, with 10 points and 12 rebounds. Topher Taylor delivered 14 assists for the Volcanoes. Keith Warm and Cole Fan- ning registered six points apiece, Taylor claimed five and Seth Cory netted four. Portola's scoring was led by Erick Miller, who hit three 3-pointers to finish with 11 points. Robinson and Rodriguez earned nine points apiece, while Kyle Heskett and Dylan Soares each scored seven. In the girls' game before the boys' match, the Portola Tigers defeated Chester 48-38 by outscoring the Volcanoes 16-7 in the fourth quarter. Emma Briggs led the Lady Tigers with 16 points and seven rebounds. Ellie Kibble added 10 points, while Lind- sey Compton led with four steals and six assists. David Ryn racked up 22 points and 14 rebounds in Chester's home game Jan. 29. Photo by Shannon Morrow Let the,00olf gam,00s begin HOOKED on GOLF JOHN K. ABENDROTH P.G.A. The professional golf season is a few weeks old, but in one respect it is just getting start- ed and so is the layoff of Tiger Woods. In a normal year, Tiger might have played last week at San Diego having won many events at Torrey Pines, including the spectacular U. S. Open in 2008 over Rocco Mediate. Most speculation has Tiger playing one event before the Master in early April. Buick dropped Tiger and the San Diego event, so Tiger may not have played this year anyway. The first weeks of the sea- son start with the limited field event for winners only, then the Sony Open ,also in Hawaii and followed by the Bob Hope, with amateurs, played over five rounds in Palm Springs. So, with Phil Mickelson in the field at San Diego, and the standard fields ready to play the Los Angeles Open and the AT&T at Pebble Beach, it feels like the year has just started. Lots of talk about the new grooves for tour players, which will make it harder to stop the ball from long or wet grass: The true overview on the groove issue will not be evident until they play on hard fast greens. There are two rookies to watch this year: Rickie Fowler has been a superstar at every level he has played, and he was dominant playing at Okalahoma State. At the end of 2009, Rickie lost in a PGA Tour playoff; it looks like he is the real deal. Also, watch Troy Merritt, the winner of the tour qualifying event and a stand-out at Boise State. One more sign the economy is hitting golf. Recently Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus won the Senior Skins game in Hawaii. This is a "made for TV event," but it was not tele- vised because of a lack of sponsors. Did you see the news about Champions Tour player Jim Thorpe? He was sentenced to one year in prison for not pay- ing his taxes. Jim is known as a big gambler; I guess that has not gone well for him.

Ski conditions on Bizz superb Recent winter storms in northern California have left excellent cross-country ski- ing and snowshoeing condi- tions on the Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail between Susanville and Westwood. "There is great coverage even on the lower elevations closest to Susanville," said Stan Bales of the Bureau of Land Management's Eagle Lake Field Office in Su- sanville. "We encourage everyone to get out there while the lower elevation snow hangs on." Bales said good trail condi- tions would remain if users follow these winter tips. Walkers and snowshoe users should stay out of the tracks set by cross-country skiers. Once Nordic tracks are set, they serve many skiers; footprints make these tracks difficult for skiers. Snowshoe users should create their own set of tracks, as should walkers. Equestrians should use the trail only when it is firm or frozen, and stay off ski tracks if riding in snow. The eastern six miles of trail from Susanville to the Devil's Corral trailhead is closed to vehicles, including snowmobiles. The areas on the Lassen National Forest west of Goumaz are open to snowmobiles. Renown rock climber gives show Peter Croft, one of Ameri- ca's foremost rock climbers, will be giving a special pre- sentation this Thursday, Feb. 4, at Feather River College. Croft is famous for his speed and endurance. In 1986, Croft climbed two of Yosemite's biggest walls, E1 Capitan and Half Dome, in a single day with John Bachar. Croft has an impressive number of first ascents and first free solos, and he has written three climbing books. The slideshow, sponsored by Feather River Outings Group, will begin at 7 p.m. in Forestry Room 403, next to the Gallery. CAL.L A.00:00000000PROFESSI00O,.NAI00 TODAY!
