:k Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, July 30, 2014 5A THINNED, from page 4A worked on her property for several days and even "took down a 130-foot tree that needed to come down." Once the tree was on the ground, the crew cut it up into rounds and stacked it to be split into firewood. "They went above and beyond," she said. "They are unbelievable." In addition to the crew being competent and hard working, Burton lauded their politeness and their consideration. "They were very quiet early in the morning," she said, and recounted several other instances of their thoughtfulness. McCourt said Burton's experience mirrored the other comments he has received. QHS boys play in final summer hoop camp Mike Woodley Special to Feather Publishing On July 19 - 20, Quincy's varsity boys basketball team traveled to Antelope to compete in a two-day camp against some of the larger schools of the Sac-Joaquin section. This was yet another chapter in the "David vs. Goliath" saga of summer basketball for the Trojans. The first game was against Mesa Verde from Citrus Heights, a school with nearly 1,300 students. Quincy was winning for a good stretch of the game, but the advantage of size and depth proved to be too much in the end. Mesa Verde came away with a 60-48 victory, but it was earned and was the largest margin of the game. Next up was Granite Bay's junior varsity. The school has its choice of players from 2,000 students. Quincy played well throughout the entire game and came away with a 66-44 victory. D.J. Davis played well and is showing he can be the floor general next season. He is a true facilitator and pushes the ball whenever he can, which made the difference in the game. The final game of day one was against Davis' varsity team. Davis' game plan was to push the pace with a ton of shooters. Davis was trapping every chance it could on defense and was relentless, but Quincy hung in there the entire game. Davis' relentless pressure gave Quincy fits and the Trojans turned the ball over at very crucial times in the game. Davis won with a score of 70-62, but Quincy never quit and battled the entire game against a school with 1,800 students. After three games the team checked into the hotel and headed to the RoseviUe Galleria for some downtime. The players ate a team dinner at Panda Express and then headed to the Cinemark to catch the new "Planet of the Apes" movie. On Sunday, Quincy was matched with River Valley from Yuba City. Like Quincy, River Valley only had seven players, making it a very competitive game throughout. Both teams went tit-for-tat the entire game with the largest margin for both teams being six points. Quincy was unable to hit free throws down the stretch and River Valley was able to win 60-54. Quincy's final game of the camp came against the best team there, Liberty Ranch out of Galt. By this time Quincy's seven players were physically drained and athletically outmatched. There is something about the players from Quincy, though, that doesn't allow them to roll over and quit. During a timeout, the coach could be heard saying to the team, "There is no 't' in Quincy. It is spelled Q-U-I-N-C-Y. Why? Because we believe!" At one point the Trojans were down by 28, but continued to fight. The final score was 80-64 in favor of Liberty Ranch. Quincy's basketball team has never been this active in the off-season and is light years ahead of where it was heading into last season. The Trojans played nearly 25 games together in the summer and that should help going into next season. The team sends special thanks to Sav-Mor for donating water and Powerade to the team, to the Boosters Club for all it has done for the program and continues to do, and last but not least to coach Kent Grammer for being willing to work a 60-plus-hour workweek then wake up early Saturday to be with such a great group of young men. The team couldn't have done it without him. "Hutch" Hutchinson, the manager of the property at Spanish Ranch into the 1970s, works the forge at the ranch's blacksmith shop sometime in the 1950s.
