2C Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Sprilng means Michael Condon Staff Writer mcondon@plumasnews.com I keep getting asked. Have you been fishing yet? How is the fishing? I sheepishly admit that I haven't been fishing yet. Maybe it's because my last outing involved a near-death experience and a good bout of hypothermia. I was fishing from my kayak in November. My dog Willow was with me. She got excited about something and capsized our little boat. I spent a couple hours in some very cold water. it's fishing time It was the sort of thing you can maybe just forget about when you are in your 20s. But I am in my 60s now and it caught my attention. It made me think seriously about things like friends, family and the meaning of life. I am still working on that last one. I will let you know if I come up with anything definitive. But it did dull my enthusiasm for winter fishing. I have opted for staying warm, dry and out of the water these past few months. It probably has been the longest I have ever gone without fishing. Now it is time to get over it! This isn't winter anymore. It doesn't even feel like early spring despite what the calendar says. Lakes that should be iced over are thawed and roads that should be covered in snow aren't. Some days it's hard to know if I am waiting for winter to begin or end. I mean, how can winter be leaving if it never really got here in the first place? The streams won't be open for a while yet. But most of our lakes are open year-round. Most years we are waiting patiently for snow and ice to melt in March, but not this year. If you enjoy fishing the many lakes of Plumas County, now is the time to get on the water. Some of my friends are big into long-range fishing. They like to travel to exotic places to practice their craft. (I use the term "exotic" loosely -- maybe anything over 100 miles from home.) I am not opposed to an occasional road trip for some good fishing, especially when it involves sharing a campfire See Fishing Report, page 3C SOFTBALL. from page 1C second at the Anderson tournament and fourth at Hamilton. Quincy's overall record raised to 7-5-1. "We played super-strong defense all around and played well as a team," commented Quincy coach Mike Yalung on the team's performance. "We still have a little tuning up to do, which we'll be working on this next couple weeks." Quincy made it to the championship at the Anderson tournament, but lost 14-1 to Anderson. Anderson, a larger school than Quincy, has won its own tournament for at least the last five years in a row. At that tournament, Quincy beat Mt. Shasta, Hoopa Valley, Trinity and Etna, losing only to Anderson and Fall River. Kaylin Henderson batted two for two and got Quincy's sole RBI against Anderson. At the Hamilton tournament, Quincy took down University Prep and Orland, and lost to Hamilton, Biggs and Portola. Brooke Potter and Sarah Nolan Quincy's team poses with its second-plac e award at the Anderson tournament March 15.

Portola In addition to beating Quincy at the Hamilton tournament, Portola took down University Prep and Orland. The Lady Tigers also tied Biggs and lost to Hamilton. , The wekond, before, Portola played at the Big League Dreams Tournament in Redding and lost to Etna, Central Valley and Modoc, but beat Hamilton. After the tournaments, the Tigers' record stood at 4-6-1. The 17-girl team has an arsenal of weapons it used at the tournaments. Sandra Kibble led the team at pitching with more strikeouts than hits against. Alli Ramelli and Taylor Prosser are both power hitters for the team. Prosser's batting average was .500 and RameUi's was .438. Crowe Herbertson-Deemer, right, finishes first in the 110-foot high hurdles, accompanied in second place by fellow Quincy teammate Craig Martynn, far left, at the Yuba College meet last Friday. Photo by Ty Herbertson QHS track does. it again James Wilson Sports Editor sports@plumasnews.com The Quincy track team excelled once again at the John "0" Invitational at Yuba College on March 21. The Trojans went up against 21 teams, most of which are in higher divisions, and came out with more placements to add to its already impressive count for the season. "We had some challenging moments and definitely faced adversity," stated Quincy coach Dan Hanna. "In some events, the field got away from us, but then in other events, the Quincy team really shined through." The varsity boys placed third overall as a team, outscoring the four Division I teams in attendance. Highlights from the meet included Shawn Hughes breaking the stadium record for the discus. Hughes launched the discus 148 feet, 6 inches to place first. Hughes hopes to break the Quincy High School record of 150 feet, 10 inches sometime this season. Crowe Herbertson- Deemer, a freshman, was moved up to the varsity team last week and ended with a first placement at the meet. Herbertson-Deemer placed first in the ll0-foot high hurdles, with a time of 17.30 seconds. Craig Martynn came in at a close second in 0:17.33. Rachel Hanna earned a first placement in the 300-foot low hurdles and Che Rubalcava-Cunan took third in the 400-meter dash. The team decided to compete in the 4x4 relay at the end of the meet. Quincy's varsity boys started in fourth place, but finished in second. The team improved its time by 15 seconds this season. Quincy will compete at Orland High School on March 26. Portola's team will join the Trojans for its first meet of the season.

But we still have a lot of games left and a tough road ahead of us." The phenomenal pitching of Jordan Desguin led the Eagles in their first win over Butte. Desguin struck out 13 batters in the eight innings he pitched with no errors and only three hits on him. The hitting in the second game made the difference for FRC. Kaimana Perreira-Alquiza tripled. Bronson Aiwohi hit a double and claimed two RBIs. Desguin grounded for a double and lichael Sanderson poppd out a sacrifice fly to left field that brought Kiln Zuttermeister home. Butte pulled ahead of the Eagles midway through the third game. FRC's pitching wasn't as focused, rotating through four pitchers during the game.
