The Chester girls, the Por- tola boys and the Quincy girls each lost to higher-seed- ed teams, bringing their sea- sons to an end. Chester girls The Lady Volcanoes, seed- ed ninth, traveled to eighth- seeded Colusa Feb. 23 and lost 57-45. Colusa took a 13-8 lead at the end of the first quarter, but Chester came back to take a 24-21 lead at halftime. After the third quarter, the score was tied 32-32 going in- to the final period. Colusa outplayed Chester 25-13 in the fourth quarter for the win. The Chester girls finished their season with an overall record of 13-8 and league record of 4-2. Portola boys Seeded 12th in the Division V playoffs, the Portola boys were defeated 56-44 by fifth- seeded Fall River Feb. 24. Portola fell behind 18-7 in the first quarter trailed 30-17 at halftime. The Tigers outscored Fall River 17-11 through the third quarter to put th score at 41- 34 going into the final period. In the fourth quarter, Fall River outplayed the Tigers 15-10 to secure a 12-point vic- tory. The Portola Tigers com- pleted this season with a 13- 10 overall record and 6-2 league record. Quincy girls The 12th-seeded Trojans al- so went to fifth-seeded Fall River Feb. 24 and played be- fore the Portola boys&apos; game. Quincy lost 69-41. Fall River jumped out to a 24-11 advantage in the first quarter and led 35-22 at half- time.

The Quincy Trojans ended this season with an overall record of 12-13 and a league record of 1-5. FISHING REPORT Frenchman Lake The recent snowfall has slowed the fishing at French- man's this past weekend. During the week we had re- ports of catching three to five rainbow trout using nightcrawlers and a worm threader. The fish were 16 - 20 inches in length, weighing three-quarters to one-and-a- half pounds, catching them at the dam. The road is snow covered and icy past Chilcoot camp- ground. Be careful and be safe. Call ahead for current updates 993-4683. Report courtesy of Wiggin's Trading Post; 993-4683 Lake Davis Fresh snow fell Monday, Feb. 22, but access is still good to the damn and east side road where most an- glers are fishing. Fishermen are catching fish 13 to 20 inches through 10 to 14 inch- es of ice. Fishing has been consistently good, and I rate it the best season in years. Limits are the rule. Baits of choice are PowerBait, night- crawlers and mealworms presented on a jig, treble hook or traditional bait hook. The bite has been ear- ly, 6 to 9 a.m. Tight Lines. Report courtesy of Dol- lard's Sierra Market; 832-5251 Westwood t)oys eliminated 66-34 Brian Taylor Lassen Sports Editor btaylor@lassen news.tom The Westwood High School boys basketball team found a pair of wins heading into its opening playoff round against Hayfork. The Jacks took a 47-44 win against Champion Christian on Friday, Feb. 19 and a 65-60 win against Princeton on Tuesday, Feb. 23. Both games were played at home to a packed Westwood gymnasium. During the Champion Christian game, Westwood's Derick Vega put together a stellar 24 point night followed by Dalton Stadelman and Ray- men Payton each with seven. Eddie Acuna had four points, Thomas Kelly had three and Johnny Peters had two. The Jacks' Erich Kirby led the team in rebounds with teammate Payton with five apiece and the defenders held the visiting Champion Christ- ian team to three point in the third quarter. Following the Champion Christian win, Westwood met the Princeton Eagles in the first round of Pioneer League playoff action, putting togeth- er a consistent attack and walking away with a 65-60 win. Three Chester racers took first place overall in league standings this season. Pictured from left: men's snowboarder Jesse Gerber, women's skier Bailey Smith and men's skier Moises McCul- Ioch. Photo submitted Chester skiers win league Shannon Morrow Sports Editor After completing its last race of the regular season at Boreal Feb. 19, the Chester High School ski team won first place overall in the Cen- tral I League. With all the points added up from the six races this season, Chester took second place in each of the men's and women's divisions, giv- ing the Volcanoes first place overall. "This team this year is very young," said Chester coach Dan Smith. "There's been a lot of growth. They're hungry, so look out for them next year." In the individual league standings, Chester skiers Melees McCulloch and Bai- ley Smith each won first place overall in the men's and women's divisions, re- spectively. Likewise, Chester's Jesse Gorbet earned first place overall in league standings in men's snowboarding. Ten of the 12 athletes on Chester's ski and snowboard teams qualified for this year's state championships, which will be held at Mount Shasta Ski Park March 8-11. In the Feb. 19 slalom race at Boreal, Kenny Wilson won the men's competition with a combined time of one minute, 2.08 seconds. This was more than 20 seconds faster than the second-place skier. Natty Brockway (third place), Michael Pixler (sixth place) and Logan Hitt (13th place) earned additional points for the Chester men's team. The women's race was al- so dominated by Chester, as Emily LaGroue and Bailey Smith claimed the top two positions. After the times of the two runs were com- bined, LaGroue took first by one-quarter of a second at 1:18.13. Bry Ward added a fourth- place finish for Chester in the women's division. Chester also took first place in the men's snow- board races, as Jesse Gorbet turned in a combined time of 1:22.40. Chester's James Brous- sard was faster than all the other snowboarders on the first run, but a mistake on the second pass cost him more than half a minute. In the women's snowboard competition, Claire Set- tlemire finished in 10th place overall.
