Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, March 4, 2015 5A Greg Knight Sports Editor The Quincy wrestling team attended the Small School Subsection Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 20 and grappled its way into a ninth-place finish among 17 teams, with senior Craig Martynn winning the 182-pound class. In addition to Martynn's first-place showing, fellow senior Bram DeMartile found his way to the podium after wrestling his way into a No. 4 fmish in the Heavyweight class. Thanks to their high finishes, both are now considered outright qualifiers to the Northern Section Masters Tournament in Redding March 6-7. After the tournament, Quincy head coach Cody Clayton commended all of his wrestlers for their hard work and determination to win. "Josh Greene (128), Noah Ray (134) and Ethan Hicks (162) all fought their way back to fifth place following earlier losses," Clayton said. "This placing makes them alternates for the section tournament. Nick Keely (147), Lane LaMar (154) and Perry Greene (197) all wrestled hard but came up just a bit short of placing in the top six." But then, it was time for the NSCIF sectional tournament -- and a showing Quincy wrestling fans and the grapplers themselves won't soon forget. Noah Ray beats No. 1 seed Competing in the 132-pounder class, Ray wrestled the two best matches of his career at the section tournament in Redding on Feb. 27-28. After coming in as an alternate, in a spot originally reserved to East Nicolaus, Ray drew the number-one wrestler in the first round, Kenny Jones of Lassen High School, and refused to be pinned. "There was no logical way to beat Kenny and advance but Noah took the game that he had to the other guy and leaned right into the pressure and discomfort," Clayton said. "It was the most growth I have seen in anyone all year. He got me all teary-eyed for sure." Martynn-DeMartile results Martynn Came into the tournament as the No. 6 seed and looking to upset at 182. According to Clayton, every spot from 6th to 2nd place was up for grabs and the tournament was going to come down to who would be the best wrestlers in their given weight classes. "(Craig) lost in the quarterfmals and had to battle back through the consolation bracket," Clayton added. "He was ahead by points in the go-ahead match and got caught in a cradle and pinned by a wrestler from Paradise he had pinned a couple of weeks before. He fmished the tournament a very respectable 2-2. (It was) oh-so-close. No one could believe he is a first-year wrestler except for me of course." For Clayton, there was also a separate goal this season, one involving DeMartile. "Truly, my only goal for this season was that he would qualify for Section," Clayton said. "He did it. He was right in the thick of the medal chase as well. He has grown leaps and bounds as both a wrestler and a leader. He was in a position to win every match. He got caught on his back by a wrestler from Gridley one match before the go-ahead round to fmish 1-2. They all battled to the end and never gave up. There isn't too much more a coach or community could ask for as representation of what we are about here in Quincy." in IO ul O rl ve a rc year Quincy High School junior Wyatt Hollister is congratulated by Linda Horton-Lyons in Paradise on Thursday, Feb. 27, after Hollister won the Lions Club's East Zone Student Speakers Contest. With his victory, Hollister earned $125 and will advance to the North Butte Regional competition in Chico on March 26. There he will compete against the other three zone winners. Should Hollister continue to advance, he could win several thousand dollars in scholarships from the Lions Club. The grand prize is a $10,000 scholarship. Photo submitted Organizers report that donors are needed for the fn."st community blood drive of 2015, which will be held Tuesday, March 10, from noon to 6 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Quincy. While most folks donate blood because they want to help others, United Blood Services provides an added incentive with its Hero Rewards Program. "I'm not sure that all of our donors realize they accumulate points every time they donate," said local blood drive coordinator Susan Christensen. "You get 100 points for donating, 100 points for keeping an appointment you made online, and 100 points for donating three times a year. You get 100 extra points for donating every year after 2010, and we have a lot of regular local donors who qualify for that." Christensen adds that "double red, donors, those who donate red blood cells through a special machine, then have their plasma and platelets returned to them, earn 200 points per donation instead of the 100 points awarded to whole blood donors. Red blood cells are the most-transfused blood component, and certain blood types are often in short supply. "Another thing to remember is that if you make an online appointment and keep it, you earn 100 points even if you're deferred," Christensen pointed out, although a deferred donor would not earn the 100 points for actually making a donation. Points can be redeemed for eGift Cards (good at Sears, K-Mart and overstock.corn), pizza (Domino's and Papa John's), T-shirts, Baskin-Robbins ice cream and even movie tickets. "The Town Hall Theatre is part of the United Blood Services promotion network," said Christensen, "so redeem your points and see a movie right here in town!" She urges donors to go online occasionally to and check their points record. "Just log in, then click on Hero Rewards to see your point total. The site tells you how to redeem them, and points do eventually expire, so take advantage of them on a regular basis." To make an appointment for the March 10 drive, donors can call Christensen at 283-2424 or visit and use the sponsor code "Quincy." While drop-ins are welcome, priority will be given to those who have appointments, though anyone who arrives late may lose their spot to a drop-in. Donors should eat a solid meal before giving blood and must bring ID to the drive. umas nlc are Please excuse our appearance while To make the most of limited space and staffing, and to accommodate providers' schedule preferences, we will move some providers within buildings, and others will change buildings.
