Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014 5C Volcanoes prep for upcoming season Greg Knight Sports Writer The Chester High School boys&apos; basketball team will field four seniors this year; Wyatt Durkin, Quinton Wilkinson, Jeremiah White and Eddy Perez are poised to lead the Volcanoes as the 2014-15 season gets underway. Durkin will be playing his fourth season of varsity basketball. He set the school record for points in a season last year with 643 and is fewer than 300 points away from breaking the school's record for points in a career. According to head coach Jake Simms, Wilkinson is an "extremely hard-working player that brings an excellent amount of energy to the floor," while White is "an all-around tough player that will "bring the team a lot of experience in his third year as a varsity player." Simms also praised Perez and his skills on both sides of the court. "Eddy is a very good shooter as well as a lock-down defender and One of the hardest-working players we have," Simms added. "He is also entering his third season as a varsity player. This group of seniors have had excellent careers at Chester in multiple sports and look forward to continuing that success this basketball season." Simms added that he has a fairly young team this year due to the fact that he only has the four seniors. "But, we are a very fast and extremely long team," Simms said. "We will look to use this length in order to improve on the defensive side of the floor. We have a very difficult schedule this year and we are looking forward to the challenges that this season holds." Lady Vols see return of Hardesty On the girls' side, the returnees to the Lady Vols will be senior guard Rebecca Branch, who is in her fourth season on varsity, along with senior forward Lance Hansen and senior guard Sara Gannon. Junior forward Kaytlan Crawford will return for her third season on varsity and sophomore forward Paige Reed will have a second year on the team. Junior guard Reanna Trujillo will start her third season on varsity as well. Head coach Aaron Hardesty has returned to the team after a one-year absence to coach at Feather River College. "I coached here for two years previously before leaving to be the assistant women's basketball coach at FRC," Hardesty said. "Our varsity team will have eight girls on it this season including our newcomers Theresa Miller, a sophomore point guard, and Elizabeth Bereznak, a freshman forward." Lady Trojans Iook:ing to get started The Quincy Lady Trojans basketball team will open up action at home Dec. 9 when Chester comes to town. When that happens, head coach Harlon Sevier says he believes his team will be ready. Sevier said with 11 players on the team he hopes all of them will undertake a positive role and contribute over the course of the season. He will see six seniors return, and hopes they take leadership roles and help the team reach its potential. "The (returners) are Jasmin Sherman, Angel Garrish, Brooke Potter, Shannia Barnes, Alexandria Fowler and Madison Leathers," Sevier said. "I also have one senior that hasn't played before who is working very hard and learning fast, Lindsey Jensen." There will also be four other players that Sevier believes will add to the mix as the Trojans seek a successful season. "I have three juniors new to the team this year and they are Rachel Hanna, Haley Cline and Taylor Friden," Sevier said. "They all are coming off of a very good year last year as junior varsity players. I also have a 10th-grader playing up, Kaylin Henderson. More than any other year I'm looking for all 11 to contribute and make a difference all season long." According to Sevier, a starting lineup had not yet been chosen due to five of his players recently coming off of volleyball season. "I believe we will have a better season this year than we've had for a while," Sevier added. "I think this team is ready to work toge{her and make it happen." GOLF RESULTS Mt. Huff Golf Course Morning fog gave way to a partly sunny, brisk fall day for the Wednesday Morning Scramble at Mt. Huff. There was a pretty good turnout for this late in the season. In first place at 7 under par was the team of Matt Rutledge, Ralph Cote and Gary Metzdorf. In second place at 6 under par were Danny Rooney, Mike Ingle, Jeff Stevens and Dick Grace. Gary Metzdorf aced both the distinction of hitting it closest to the pin as well as the chip-in. There was no scramble on Thursday afternoon due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
