Photo submitted Feather River softball brings record to 10-3 The Feather River College softball team traveled south to Stockton Saturday, March 6, to get back to ac- tion after a 15-day layoff. The Golden Eagles knocked off the rust against Contra Costa behind a strong pitching perfor- mance by Annalee Rubio. Rubio surrendered only five hits while striking out five in route to her second shutout of the season. The offense, led by Dani Ming's three hits, would fi- nally get going in the fifth inning, scoring three times behind RBI doubles by Brit- tany Potter and Chelsea Venable. FRC added one more run in the sixth inning to finish the scoring for the game. The Golden Eagles went on to win the game 4-0, pushing their record to 10-2. Game two matched up FRC, the second-ranked team in the North, with the fourth-ranked team in the state, San Joaquin Delta College. The Golden Eagles got on the board first with an RBI double by Brittany Potter, scoring Dani Ming from first base. Feather River held the lead going into the fifth in- ning behind an impressive pitching performance by Erica Wieck. Wieck went the distance, giving up only four hits and no earned runs. The Eagles' defense was the difference. A one-out er- ror in right field set the table for the Mustangs to tie the game in the fifth inning. Wieck did a great job of get- ting out of the jam in the fifth to leave the game tied 1-1. In the sixth inning, the Golden Eagles once again made a one-out mistake to give the Mustangs the 2-1 lead, which ended up being the final score. "When playing against teams of Delta's caliber, it is the team with the least amount of mistakes that usually wins," said FRC coach Josh Taylor. That statement held true, as the Golden Eagles had the tying run on third in the seventh inning, but could not get her in to score. The loss pushed the Gold- en Eagles' record to 10-3. Feather River will begin Golden Valley Conference play Wednesday, March 10, at Lassen College.

"We beat the Lake Tahoe teams, and we don't even have our own ski hill," said Lisa Kelly, the co-director of JJST. "Imagine how good it would be if we had our own hill in our backyard." The Johnsville Junior Ski Team trained and raced at the Plumas Eureka Ski Bowl above Johnsville for decades, until the hill closed several years ago. At Soda Springs, Miranda Lemons was the fastest racer of the day, taking first place overall with a time of 36.18 seconds. McKenna Taylor regis- tered the next fastest time for JJST at 36.74 seconds, and Che Rubalcava-Cunan clocked a 38.44. Of the JJST racers, Dakota Strand finished fourth at 38.79, and Daniel Haygood rounded out the top five with a time of 41.28. Michaela Barnes placed sixth, followed by Matt Bee- son in seventh, Jacquie Wheaton in eighth, Dayne Lewis in ninth and Craig Martynn in tenth. The prior weekend, JJST held back-to-back races at Sugar Bowl Saturday, Feb. 27. Taylor took first place in both races for the Extreme Team. In the first race of the day, Taylor was followed by Rubalcava-Cunan in second, Lemons in third Haygood in fourth and Barnes in fifth. The second race ended with Lemons in second place, Haygood in third, Barnes in fourth and Rubal- cava-Cunan in fifth. JJST will hold its final in- ter-squad race at Alpine Meadows this SaturS- March 13. The team's last race of the season will be the Buddy Werner competition against other junior ski teams at Alpine Meadows Saturday, March 27.
