The four-person team finished last season sharing two sets of clubs and often had to borrow from neighboring teams. QHS golf coach Jennifer Dyrr knew the team couldn't continue like that, and hpproached Quincy Rotary last month to see if it could help out in any way. Rotary took note and took action, culminating in a giant donation to QHS golf at its regular meeting Aug. 18. "We got this started last year, and I'm glad to see it took off," said Dyrr. "If we are going to grow, though, we needed our own equipment." Kevin Trutna, president of Feather River College and Quincy Rotary member, sprang to action after hearing Dyrr's initial plea. Trutna contacted a Marysville Rotary member to see if he had any ideas. Trutna's contact promised to look into it. Within a couple weeks, Trutna received an email stating that the equipment was ready to be picked up. Brittany O'Bryant, a 12th-grader in the Sacramento area, was working on gathering equipment for smaller schools to start golf programs as her senior project. After hearing about Quincy's situation, O'Bryant offered to help, and gave donated equipment to Quincy's team. Trutna drove down to Sacramento and loaded up the equipment for Quincy's team. The team, along with Dyrr, walked through the door to the Rotary meeting last Monday to a wall filled with equipment. Clubs, balls, gloves, shoes and many other items were presented to the team -- enough equipment for seven boys and seven girls. All the equipment was in great shape, and some of it was still in its packaging. After thanking Rotary, Dyrr extended an offer to the rest of Plumas County's golf teams. "With this donation we are more than set. Hopefully we'll be able to attract more people to our team. If any other teams in the area need anything, this donation is extended to them as well." Chase Nieman crosses the finish line during the fair races Sunday, Aug. 17. The American Valley Speedway continued to heat up last weekend, with Jeff Olschowka winning the race.

Antonia Marro was named Chester's MVP. Marro, the team's defensive captain, was named MVP for her solid performance in all five games. "The first game, winning against Susanvine was crucial,', said Chester coach Eric O'Kelley. "It got us off to a good start. We enjoy this tournament every year. It gives us a good variety and exposure. It's nice to play teams outside the league." Portola also started its play with a win, against Quincy. The Tigers took down the hosting team 2-0 Friday. Later in the day, Portola lost 3-0 to Whittell. On Saturday, in addition to losing to Chester, Portola fell 4-0 to Susanville. "It was a brutal game against Susanville," said Portola coach Thomas Cormany. "With such small numbers on the team, my girls were worn out by the final day. I'm proud of them, though. Though it was a loss, they played well." Cormany named Tabi Martinez Portola's MVP. Martinez scored all the goals for her team during the tournament. In addition to losing to Chester and Portola, Quincy lost 3-1 to Truckee the first day of the tournament. Until this last weekend, it had been two years since Quincy won its last game. On Saturday, all that changed. The Trojans took on Tulelake and won 2-0. Rachel Hanna was named the team's MVP for scoring two of the three goals Quincy made during the tournament. Ava Hagwood scored the other goal. "I'm very excited for the season," said Quincy coach Sara Goard. "The girls just clicked this weekend. We played well. I'm happy to see it's happening so early in the season. I don't want to single one player out, because it was such a team effort." All the teams seemed to appreciate the chance to get an early start on the season, and test out their skills against teams they won't be playing during league play.
