According to!Quiny; ......... ahletic directoohn ...... : " Holland, there have been several changes in the program at Quincy, beginning with the resignation of head coach Sarah Goard last week and the subsequent removal of the stipend for the girls' team head coaching position. Holland also added that while there will be no league affiliation for the Lady Trojans, Quincy will still have a season-long jaunt toward the Perpetual Trophy -- the award fought for between Quincy, Portola and Chester since 1999. "There is no league and few teams for them to play, which means there is no championship or playoffs for the girls' soccer team," Holland wrote in an email. "We had a meeting of six schools down at Paradise Adventist last month and did get a six-team boys' and co-ed league set up, but of the six schools there only Quincy .and Portola will have a girls team." Holland added that he did not vote for a co-ed team in order to save the squad as a school athletic program. "We could have had someone form a travel-type team like the Susanville Strikers, but that would not have been a school team," Holland said. "So, with 14 girls who wanted to play soccer, I could not throw them under the bus and vote to eliminate their team, so I didn't. We will have a team even though they are not in any type of a league as there are not four schools that have a girls team to form one." Chester's Lady Volcanoes soccer team, one of the strongest programs in the region, may also face Quincy in the coming season. The stipend that had gone to girls' soccer will now switch to a different sports program at Quincy. "With 24 students that were going to play tennis, we moved the stipend to tennis rather than soccer as they will be in a league next year and girls' soccer won't at this point in time," Holland said. Among the high schools in Plumas County, Quincy has eight stipends for sports, four for boys' teams and four for girls' teams.
