Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014 lC , ;( S and Greg Knight Sports Writer sports@plumasnews.com In what ended up being the closest game of the year for the Lady Trojans volleyball team, the Colusa Lady Redhawks were able to beat the No. 2 seed in the second round of Division V playoffs on a 3-1 (25-21, 23-25, 23-25, 15-25) final score in Quincy last week. The game was rousing for the Lady Trojans from the beginning as the Redhawks bumped%ut to a 4-1 lead in the first game, forcing the Trojans to take an early timeout to regroup and rethink their strategy. After taking the time to talk over the game plan with head coach Chad Hyink, the squad belted out a close 25-21 win in the set. But then, it was all Colusa for the remainder of the night What followed, until the fourth and decisive set, was a back-and-forth battle for points that resulted in a pair of two-point, 25-23, defeats for Quincy. It was all too much for the Trojans who, in the fourth set, finally gave up the ghost on a 25-15 tally and suffered the 3-1 loss to Colusa. After the game, Hyink said he was proud of his team and recognized his upperclassman players. "We had a good year and it "We had a good year and it was the first time we won league since 2009. It was a great group and even though we are losing four seniors we have a great group of sophomores coming up that will lead us next year." Head coach Chad Hyink was the first time we won league since 2009," Hyink said. "It was a great group and even though we are losing four seniors, Jasmin Sherman, Samantha Keely, Lynda Nolan and Angel Garrish, we have a great group of sophomores coming up that will lead us next year." In addition to rumors that she is looking at wearing the green and gold of Feather River College next season for the Golden Eagles, Sherman was named Mid-Valley League MVP and, along with Nolan, Keely, Haley Cline and Kaylin Henderson, was named to this year's all-league squad.

For many high school and college athletes, that dream is perform well enough to get paid for it as a professional player. Unfortunately, the percentage of players that make it out of college ball and into the professional ranks hovers between 1 and 2 percent. Baseball is the exception to that rule, sending about one in every 10 NCAA Division I - III players to at least a contract with a minor league franchise. Because of the very limited amount of open rookie slots available in professional sports -- and the fact that players skilled enough to fill them are far and few between -- it is always a joy to hear or read about someone you know of making it to that rarified level of competitive sport. Thus, kudos are in order for Cody Anderson, a Quincy boy done good that is now on the verge of realizing a dream; Anderson has been called up to the 40-man roster in the Cleveland Indians organization and will, God willing, perform well enough to see a Major League Baseball debut for the team in the near future.
