There are a few changes to the team's schedule this year, including hosting a tournament mid September. Photos by James Wilson girls continued to improve to the very end. This year, one aspect of Quincy's football team may hinder its performance - the lack of players. The Trojans have 14 players this year, which means less rest for everyone. "Though our numbers are significantly down this year, we have good talent," said QHS' football coach Tom Goss. "I think this is the strongest team we've had in years. We'll be at the top of our division, but we just have to stay healthy." Seven seniors with plenty of talent will help mentor the five juniors and two sophomores on the team. What the Trojans' success may come down to this year is whether or not they . sustain an.y significant injuries. The volleyball team is reportedly fired-up for the season. The team played club volleyball last spring and participated in the camp at Feather River College this summer, so should still be warmed up and ready to go. Nine players are returning from last year's playoff roster, so the team appears to have plenty of experience. Quincy coach Chad Hyink is counting on seniors Lynda Nolan, Samantha Keely, Jasmin Sherman and Angel Garrish to set the tone for the team. "An obvious team strength for us is the high amount of on-court experience," commented Hyink. "I think my biggest obstacle as the coach is going to be finding playing time for everyone as we are deep in talent. But the success of our season will be determined by the players and their attitudes and efforts that they bring dally." The team will play its first match at Chester onAug 28. Quincy's first home game will be against Westwood on Sept. 16. Quincy's boys soccer team looks like it might go all the way this year. The team boasts nine seniors on the roster, which includes 19 players in all. This is the largest team Quincy's boys soccer program has seen in years. In addition, Jeren Seibel, Quincy High School alumnus and sports coordinator for the Central Plumas Recreation and Park District, will bring his vast knowledge of and experience in the Quincy's Cody Morrison kicks off.

Colin Dillingham will once again bring his winning attitude as head coach. Quincy's girls also have a good-sized team with 15 players. Though the team only has two seniors, Quincy coach Sarah Goard seemed optimistic about the season in an interview with Feather Publishing last week. "We are a young team this year, but we're looking fantastic," commented Goard. "We have a group of freshmen coming in that have lots of talent."

Portola's girls' soccer team, much like its boys', is in need of more players. Sign-ups are still available for those interested. Photos by James Wilson James Wilson Sports Editor Portola looks like it's going to have an interesting year in sports. The Tigers have always been at the top of their divisions, and if they can help it, will be again this year. Portola's football team is one of its youngest teams to date. Though the team has eight seniors, almost all of. the starting positions will be played by juniors and sophomores. Despite the young starters, Portola coach Steve Heskett seems hopeful about the season. "I like this group of kids," said Heskett. "They are hard working and we will get better every week." The Tigers will have some tough competition this season, playing Pershing County on Sept. 12 and Weed on Sept. 19. Portola's first game will be Aug. 29 at Incline Village. Portola's volleyball team will be coached by Matt Compton this year. Compton has previous experience coaching volleyball, and was the school's girls' basketball coach last year. Portola has four returning starters. The team Should have a solid mix of experience and talent. There's quite a bit of change happening to Portola's soccer program this year. First and foremost, the school now has a boys' team. Coach Thomas Cormony said the team is in need of more players, so any boys at Portola High School who are interested in playing soccer should contact him immediately. "We have some great players on the team," said Cormany. "The biggest problem we're facing right now is numbers. We have nine players on the bqys' team, so they all have to play the entire game." The school's girls' team is as good as ever. Each year, the team consists of a good mix of seniors and younger players. This year is no Matt Remington runs for yardage in a game last season, putting Portola within a short distance of the end zone. This year's football team is quite a bit younger than teams in years past, but coach Steve Heskett said they are also more athletic. exception.
