Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014 7C Outlook for Indians' small school looks good James Wilson Sports Editor Greenville High School doesn't let being a small school get in the way of having successful athletic teams. The Indians' football and volleyball teams have records to prove their suceess, and according to the two teams' coaches, this year will be no different. Greenville has plenty of players lined up and ready to hit the field and court. The Indians' football team has 18 players, giving an unusually high level of depth for eight-man football. The volleyball team only lost two seniors this year, and is packed with experience. "One thing I told the team is we are going to be the best conditioned team out there," said Greenville coach Justin Allen on getting his team ready for the season. "We lost some starters last year, but in practice we've been very cohesive-really working together." Greenville may face a learning curve with such a young team, but Allan is sure the Indians will pick up the pace fairly quickly. With a big team and plenty of talent, strength and speed on the field, Greenville will be sure to make a running shot at the championship this season. Last year, the Indians were bumped out of the playoffs by Butte Valley. This year, Butte Vlley will be the first team they face, Aug. 29 at 6 p.m. at Butte Valley. Greenville's volleyball team did exceptionally well last year, posting an 8-2 league record. Dan Brown, the school's volleyball coach, has even higher hopes for this year than last. This year's team has played together for years, and Brown has coached them all before on one level or another. After gathering the team together for some training last spring, Brown said it was looking pretty good. "I always hope that the girls are going to play well," said Brown. "There aren't as many power teams that we'll be going up against (before league play), so we should have more of a level playing field. Hopefully we'll find more success." Greenville's volleyball team will start its season at the Lassen tournament Sept. 6.

The team is a bit younger this year, but is looking fast and strong.

Photo by Tony Cordero James Wilson Sports Editor sports@plu There are some big changes to the athletic department going into effect at Chester High School this year. New staffing nearly across the board will affect every aspect of how Chester plays its game. One big change is the title of athletic director. This summer, iong-time Athletic Director Terry Hernandez left Chester after 20 years of teaching and coaching for a position at Central Valley High School in Redding. Paul Hardig took over the AD position after Hernandez's departure. Hernandez was also Chester's head football coach. Former assistant coach Rich Dreith took the helm of the team, and plans to steer it into another winning season. Last year, Chester had an overall 9-2 record. The Volcanoes were on their way to the division championship, but were disqualified days before for playing an ineligible player. This year, the hope is to make up for that by not only making it to the championship, but winning it as well. It will be a little tougher for Chester this year, which just lost 10 seniors. i ......................................................................................................

Box 1369 QUINCY, CA 95971 LIC. #453927 The team still has a number of experienced players, but their caliber is unknown at this time. Chester will start its season at home Aug. 29 against Modoc. Chester's volleyball team hopes to turn things around this season. Last year, the team finished with a 4-26 overall record and a 2-10 league record. This year, Candice Roseberry will coach the team, which has more experience and hopes to win more games. The ream will play its first home game of the season Sept. 4 against Biggs. Chester's soccer program is looking as good as always. Once again coached by Eric O'Kelley, the girls' soccer team is deep with talent with 22 on the roster. Of the 22, though, only three are seniors. Last year the Volcanoes went all the way, winning the Feather River League. If Chester's girls have anything to Say about it, history will repeat itself. Chester participated in Quincy's annual Augustfest tournament this last weekend. For details, see Page 1C. Do you see a PHOTOGRAPH in the would like?
