Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 51:: Chester, Quincy wrestlers win big James Wilson Sports Editor sports@plu Fall River held the annual Shasta Cascade League Wrestling Tournament last weekend, and two Plumas County teams were present to compete. Chester proved its usual excellence and experience, while Quincy showed off its improvements. The league boasted 10 teams, all striving for the gold. Chester placed second overall and won the small-school division. Friday, Feb. 7, Chestgr had dual meets with Dunsmuir and Fall River and only lost one match the whole day. For the tournament, Javier Contreras and Silas LaGroue both placed first. T.J. Eidhammer, Cole Conner and Trevor Feger all took second place. Chad Ragan took third and Tyler Tatum placed fourth. Tatum suffered a concussion during his second match and had to default the third and fourth. "I&apos;m feeling pretty good about how we're doing," said Chester coach Tom Rogers about Chester's outlook on the post-season tournaments. "We're starting to peak at just the right time. We haveto win that section championship again." Quincy wrestlers pose with the plaque they won at the Shasta Cascade League Tournament at Fall River last weekend. Photo submitted For its first year back since 2010, Quincy's wrestling program has taken giant strides in becoming a program on an equal level with its competition. The new team surfaced this season and is comprised mainly of athletes who never wrestled before. Quincy traveled to various tournaments throughout the state and Nevada this season, and has progressed through each one. Quincy's pinnacle came last weekend at the Fall River Tournament, where three Quincy wrestlers placed. When asked if he was surprised that Quincy's team was doing this well this early, Quincy coach Cody Clayton said not at all. Clayton recognized the effort Quincy's grapplers have put into this season. "I always believed this would happen, but didn't know when," said Clayton. "I thought it would happen this season, and I think in another year we'll be seeing Quincy wrestlers placing first and second." Ethan Henderson, Kyle Breaux and Taylor Hendrick all placed third at the tournament. Henderson placed in the 162-pound class, Breaux in the 154-pound class and Herdrick n the 220-pound class. Hendrick is Quincy's only girl wrestler. Chester and Quincy have a week break to recoup and work kinks out for the division tournament at Modoc High School on Feb. 22. Clayton seemed pretty enthusiastic about his team's chances at advancing to the sectional tournament. "Our kids are putting in the time and commitment needed," said Clayton. "They'ye been working really hard and we're wrestling at a level where we're in it. We're competitive." Rained-out games put damper on FRC's seasons James Wilson Sports Editor Though the recent rain was much needed for California, the weather was an unexpected hindrance for Feather River College's softball and baseball teams. Both teams had to put a halt on some games during the last couple weeks, as the weather took a turn for the worse at two different tournaments. FRC's softball team headed to Monterey Peninsula College's annual tournament Feb. 1, set to take on three games. The Lady Eagles only made it through game one before rain started dumping on the field. FRC lost to Cabrillo College in its single game 8-4. The loss brought the Lady Eagles' record to 1-2. Last Sunday, FRC's baseball team was set to play Cabrillo at Delta College and Sierra College at Rock,in College the following day. Both games were postponed due to the weather. FRC rescheduled the match-ups and is set to head to Sierra College on Feb. 18 to play at 2 p.m. and to play Cabrillo at 1 p.m. Feb. 23. Updates and changes are periodically posted on Feather River College baseball's Facebook page. FRC softball's game against Cabrillo was a tight one with Cabrillo racking up its winning runs in the fourth inning. Cabrillo got a decent start with three runs in the first inning, but FRC caught up with two runs in the top of the second and one more in the fourth. Cabrillo brought five runners home in the fifth and FRC only managed to bring one more home in the sixth. Quincy Pierce opened at the mound for FRC, and struck out two batters. Sydney Womer took over for Pierce in the sixth inning, FRC's final on the field. Womer didn't allow a single hit during her inning pitched. Pierce proved to be a powerhouse at the plate as well, knocking one out of the park. Katie Barnes, also a power hitter, got a double. Abigail Ferrall got three RBIs and Pierce got oneoff her homer. FRC's softball team will head to Sacramento this Saturday to take on Sacramento City College and Cabrillo once again. , li I" & Service Start the New Year Off Right! What Do You Need Done?
