’ / Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, March 5, 2014 3C James Wilson Sports Editor The Quincy High School girls' basketball team proved its improvement over the season by getting into the playoffs. But the Trojans were eliminated in the first round, Feb. 25, against Hamilton. The Trojans played well for the majority of the game, but had a dismal second period that led to a 52-45 loss. Quincy was seeded 13th in the playoffs with a 5-19 overall record for the season. Hamilton was the No. 4 seed with a 15-11 record. Hamilton was favored to win, though Quincy showed vast improvement the previous few weeks. At the beginning of the season, Quincy was consistently losing games by 20 or more points. Quincy won its last game against Williams, and lost by only two points to Portola the previous game. "We did a lot better at the end of the year than at the beginning," said Quincy coach Harlon Savier. "We've had problems all year with turnovers, but our shot accuracy improved quite a bit." Quincy actually outscored Hamilton the majority of the game. Hamilton put more points on its board only in the second quarter, but that was substantial enough to cripple the Trojans and thwart any comeback attempt. Quincy was up 14-12 in the first quarter, before Hamilton got on an 18-4 run in the second quarter. Hamilton started its run with a series of uncontested shots that put it ahead. "They got three buckets right offthe bat," Savier continued, explaining Hamilton's play. "After that, we had trouble getting any shots in until the second haft." Despite falling behind, Quincy pushed back in the second haft to nearly catch up. The Trojans scored 27 points compared to Hamilton's 22, but in the end the Trojans fell short. Quincy had chances to come back. For the last minute and a haft, the score stood with Hamilton up 50-45. The Trojans missed four free throws and had three turnovers in that time period. Angel Garrish was Quincy's leading scorer, putting 16 points on the board. Jasmin Sherman scored 13 points, Bethany Rouse was next up with nine points and Rachel Hanna, a sophomore who was pulled up to the varsity team, scored seven points. Quincy's Jasmin Sherman breaks for the basket in a game earlier this season. The Lady Trojans traveled to Hamilton on Feb. 25 to compete in the first round of playoffs. Hamilton had a big second quarter to win 52-45 and end Quincy's season.

GHS, from page lC little more than a minute into the quarter, Hayfork took the lead 31-30, but the Indians bounced back. Greenville clinched its win with two strong drives and free throws to regain the lead for the remainder of the gapae. In addition to Eaglesmith, Darian Putts was on top of his game as well. Putts scored 11 points and sank two from behind the three-point line. Christian Beres nabbed nine rebounds and three blocks. Against Maxwell, Greenville couldn't compete with its opponents' height and defense. Maxwell tallied 23 steals compared to Greenville's six. Maxwell also nabbed the majority of the rebounds. "They're big, fast and played very well," said Crouch about Maxwell. "Basically, they defeated us all around." Maxwell's center, Zach Troughton, impacted the game in ways Greenville couldn't compete with. The 6-foot-5-inch player scored 27 points and had 10 rebounds. Troughton shut down a good portion of Greenville's drives. Greenville's Beres played a hard-fought game, scoring nine points. Cooper Kingdon added seven more to Greenville's score. "Being co-champions of our league, I think we had a successful season overall," added Crouch. "Going into next year, I think we'll be even stronger." ill PLUMBING Dean Powell • Full Service • Residential & Commercial • New Homes • Remodels • Additions PLU31]BENG & E[F.J~TING Residential • Commercial Call now for immediate appointment (530) 283-1605 Bonded & Insured #\ 1 ~ Since 1976 ~ CA.
