2C Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter FRC soccer brings in scholarship offers James Wilson Sports Reporter With another successful season under its belt, the Feather River College soccer teams are now focused on something else: the players' futures. The men's team finished first in the Golden Valley Conference, going undefeated in conference play with only one tie. The women's team finished second in the confer- ence with two wins, two loss- es and two ties. Many FRC players made the all-conference team this year. For the second year in a row FRC had more players than any other school in the conference make the cut. The conference's offensive player of the year was FRC's Seon Ripley. Similarly, tile Eagles' Oliver Hitch was named defensive player of tile year. Naomi Felthanl, of the women's team, won de- fensive player of the year as well. Abel Islas, Alan Castro, Adrian Iniguez, Douglas Williamson and Joe O'Neill all made the all-conference team. For the women's team, Melissa Kalbfleisch, Grace Pedroza and Korey Cline all made the all-conference team. Sophomores from both teams attended the Califor- nia Community College Sophomore Showcase at Mt. San Antonio College in east- ern Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with great results. Multiple scholarship offers poured out from four-year universities to FRC players. "All in all, I'm guessingwe have about half a million dol- lars in scholarships offered to us," said FRC's coach, Don Williams. "That is, the schol- arships my players plan to take will equal around that. More than a half million dol- lars in offers have come in, however." Last year the women's' team was comprised fully of freshmen and the players were ineligible to transfer. This Year, however, the team has several sophomores. :Every sophomore on the team has at least one scholar- ship offer; most have multi- ph} ol'lrs. Quincy High School gradu- ate and current FRC women's team goalkeeper Korey Cline has more inter- est from recruiters than any- one else. "(Cline) has worked Very hard to learn and improve," said Williams. "She has done an amazing job developing as a goalkeeper. She's a very rare find and a lot of coaches recognize that." Cline received offers from several Division II schools and a couple Division I schools. At this point Cline is weighing her options while keeping an open mind. Cline dominated the field at QHS and made the deci- sion then to continue playing soccer through college. WiIliams met her and con- vinced her to play for FRC. "(Williams) told me if I played for him he would get me out of here in two years," said Cline. "I didn't really be- lieve him at the time. He has improved me so much from high school. He's a great Coach." What contributes to the program's successful draw of scholarship offers is the aca- demic excellence of the play- ers. Williams started.the pro- gram with the intention of at- tracting bright players. "The answer isn't strictly athletics," explained Williams. "It's really a com- bination of athletics and scholastics. The bottom line is that coaches from univer- sities aren't interested in players that can't get it done academically as well." To transfer to most schools, a grade-point aver- age of 2.5 is required. FRC's men's team has an average GPA of 2.8 and the women's Quincy High School graduate and current Feather River College goalkeeper Korey Cline utilizes her athletic skills this season. As a result of her hard work and diligence, Cline has multiple scholarship opportunities. More than 20 colleges have offered Cline scholarships to play for them. Every eligible player on the women's team have been offered at least one scholarship. Photo by James Wilson team a 3.3. "We laid it out to the players from day one that if they want to go on to a four- year school they have to be serious in the classroom as well," said Williams. The teams' players plan to take the next month' to mull over their offers. Offers have come from Arkansas State, Wagner, Humboldt State, Cal State LA, UC Santa Barbara, Cal Poly and Cal State Bernardino, to name just a few. Quincy's girls basketb]ll team beats Chester James Wilson Sports Reporter The Quincy Trojans girls' basketball team took on the Chester Volcanoes on Dec. 11. Both teams seemed up to the challenge during the first half. Quincy pulled all its offensive moves in the second half for a 71-57 victory. "We played pretty well," said Quincy's coach, Kent Grammer. "Our biggest flaw was our turnovers in pass- ing. We had 33 turnovers in all. We came out in the sec- ond half though." The Quincy girls played their best this season against the Volcanoes. This was the third win of the season for Quincy as the Trojans im- proved to 3-7. Chester fell to 4-3 on the season. ' The Trojans took off with an 18-8 lead during the first quarter. Chester outscored Quincy by t2 points in the second quarter to take a 30-28 lead at the half. Quincy's offense dominat- ed the second half, scoring 22 points in the third quarter and 21 points in the fourth to secure the victory. Four Trojans scored in the double figures. Angel Gar- rish and Jasmine Sherman each had 11 points. Kristin Wright scored 13 points, and Bethany Rouse had 14 points and 14 rebounds. Hamilton City tournament Quincy's girls traveled to the Hamilton City tourney Dec. 13 - 15. The Trojans faced Hamilton, Colusa and Las Plumas. The girls lost to Hamilton, 61-33. Hamilton was up 27-14 at the half and continued its rampage through the end of the game. Quincy lost 64-32 to Colusa the following day. Colusa dominated with its defense and rebounding. Colusa raced to a 39-17 halftime lead and never let up. The last quarter was mainly a defensive game, with Quincy only scoring three points. The next day the girls lost to Las Plumas of Oroville, 59- 30. "We're still figuring out how we play as a team," said Grammer. "We have a lot of talent, though, and once we come together we're going to be a tough tea to beit." Give The Gift That Keeps On Giving!

Sierra (Hwy 70), Portola 832-4646 Call our Quincy office 283-0800 135 Main St., Chester 258-3115 DFG seeks public comrrent The California Depart- ment of Fish and Game is proposing new regulations to support an increase in the number of hunter education instructors in thd state. Cur- rently, there are not enough instructors to keep up with the public's demand for mandatory hunter education classes. The regulations would create an incentive program to help recruit new instructors and to retain cur- rent ones. The proposed regulations, which would be added to the California Code of Regula- tions Title 14, establish spe- cific criteria to participate in the hunter :education in- structor incentive program. These criteria include em- ployment status, length of service, in-service training requirements, compliance with existing game laws and payment of an application fee. The proposal also creates a drawing system to equitably distribute the incentive op- portunities. These incentives include, but are not limited to, fully guided hunts, limit- ed-entry big game tags and firearms. Eligible instructors would be assigned a random number for the drawing. Those with the lowest num- bers would receive the high- est-rated opportunities. The proposal also establishes a system to redistribute tags in the event any instructor is unable or unwilling to utilize the opportunity provided. The proposal rewards long- term service as a hunter edu- cator by providing additional entries per drawing. For ex- ample, instructors must com. plete three years of service in order to participate in the in- centive program and they will earn an additional entry for each additional 10 years of service. The proposed regulations are available for comment from Dec. 10 through Dec. 26. The proposed regulations are available on the DFG website at tor_Incentive. All comments must be re- ceived by DFG no later than 5 p.m. Dec. 26. Comments can be emailed to rgrif- or mailed or hand-delivered to Roy Grif- fith, Captain/Hunter Educa- tion Program, Department of Fish and Game, 1416 Ninth Street/Room 1342-6A, Sacra- mento, CA 95814. Comments received by the due date will be considered before the regulations are adopted. Questions about the regu- lations should be directed to Capt.
