The championship is enhanced by the fact that head coach Sarah Ritchie's past five teams have won those titles as the unbeaten leaders of the pack in GVC competition since 2009. This season, that crown comes with a 10-0 league record and a 22-2 tally on the year. In the Shasta game, sophomores Abbie Mikelson and Marinda Thomas went into double digits in scoring against the Knights with 13.5 and 12 points, respectively. Thomas also led the Golden Eagles with five aces and on defense had 10 digs, followed by Nina Holmes with six. Golden Eagles u ndefeated i n GVC Mikelson also added three solo blocks. Feather River was mightily strong through the first two sets against Shasta, but the third set didn't go quite as planned score-wise when the Knights took a slight lead in the early going. After regrouping and subbing through a rotation of players, Ritchie was able to right the ship, get FRC back into the lead and snag the win.

"He has played on a section championship soccer team and has started at quarterback in the playoffs. Simply put, he is capable of a double-double every night. He plays hard, aggressive defense. He is the best all-around athlete on the team." Schwartz was voted first team all-league last year in basketball.
