The two teams I am referring to are Quincy and Greenville. With overall records of 14-7 tnd 12-5, respectively, the Trojans and Indians are leading the way for boys' basketball in Plumas County.

While I try to never exclusively portray one or two players on a given team as the salvation for its competitiveness, no one who follows either group of young men can deny the impact Trojan senior Brady Rick and junior Jakob Grammer, as well as Indian senior Walker Meyers and sophomore Justus Eaglesmith, are making on a daily basis. Take for instance kick's 436 points scored over the course of Quincy's first 21 games and match that up against Eaglesmith's 362 points in just 17 games this season. / When you look at the average /' points pet game scored, Rick has been shooting 20.8 per game, with Eaglesmith logging an average of 21.3 in every match. And don't forget that this is the same Justus Eaglesmith who scored 333 points in 26 games as a freshman.
