Laura Benton Staff Writer Ibeaton@plumasnews.com Sand volleyball in Plumas County? That's right, beginning this fall, Feather River College will begin offering the two-person team sport, which recently became a sanctioned college sport. Sarah Ritchie, volleyball coach at FRC, and athletic director Merle Trueblood said they are excited to add sand volleyball to the college's athletic program. The two were on hand at the FRC board of directors' meeting July 17. Ritchie said that offering the sport makes the college more attractive to prospective players. Not only can the women play regular court volleyball, now they can play sand volleyball too. What FRC president Kevin Trutna likes about the program, in addition to the new students and more class sections it will garner, is the relatively low cost to establish the program: less than $25,000 for a full year. Sand volleyball is played outdoors on regulation sand courts that are 3 feet, 9 inches narrower and 7-1/2 feet shorter than a standard volleyball court: their dimensions are 26 feet, 3 inches by 52 feet, 6 inches. Instead of the usual six players, sand volleyball features just two players per team. In a match, FRC will sport six two-person teams. Match play will occur at tournaments. The details of the program, such as where the courts will be built and a tournament schedule, are not yet Emalized. The college was under the gun to make a decision before its window of opportunity closed, Trutna said, and he wanted the board's opinion. Board members agreed that FRC should offer the new sport. Trutna added that a side benefit of adopting the sport is to demonstrate movement toward Title 9 compliance. New website Dean of Instruction Derek Lerch said the new FRC website was scheduled to go live Monday, July 21. The new website will be much improved, easier for teachers and staff to manage and will be more user friendly, Lerch said. It's address is the same: frc.edu. Lerch also reported that it appears that the college did not meet its enrollment target for the 2013-14 school year. He said there are still some adjustments to be made before final results are calculated. New hires Trutna announced that Carolyn Shipp was hired as executive director of the Feather River College Foundation and that Sara Frigo was hired as interim director of the child development center. Board president John Sheehan reported that during the closed session immediately prior to the regular board meeting, the board directed staff to continue negotiations for property that could be used for student housing. No further details were given. The next board meeting is scheduled for Aug. 21.
