Bulletin, Record, Progressiye, Reporter Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014 3C YEAR IN REVIEW, from page 2C July 30 2014 marks the 19th running of the Downieville Classic. The longevity of this weekend-long mountain bike race/party is testament to its popularity, and this year's event -- slated for Aug. 1 - 3 -- promises to serve up enough excitement and suffering to keep that reputation going strong. Founded in 1995 bY promoter Greg Williams, the Classic started as a 28-mile point-to-point cross-country race, featuring a character-building 8-mile climb to start, and a diversity of technical rocks and high-speed singletrack unlike anywhere else. Aug. 6 American Valley Speedway's Saturday night races had a ceremony and celebration before any racing began. The ceremony was the dedication of the new American flag presented to the speedway by Greenville"s American Legion. The celebration was the first birthday of Grayson Olschowka, who rode in his father's racecar around the speedway. Aug. 13 As announced by the American Volleyball Coaches Association on Aug. 4, the Feather River College volleyball team was selected for the AVCA Team Academic Award for the 2013-14 school year. Feather River was one of 22 junior colleges throughout the nation selected for the award and the only member of the California Community College Athletic Association to receive the award. Aug. 20 Feather: River College hired Bart Andrus to fill the interim head coach position for the 2014 season. Andrus has coached football since 1981, when he started as a high school coach. Since then, Andrus has coached all over the world. Aug. 27 Portola looks like it's going to have an interesting year in sports. The Tigers have always been at the top of their divisions, and if they have anything to say about it they will be again this year. Portola's football team is one of its youngest teams to date. Though the team has eight seniors, almost all of the starting positions will be played by juniors and sophomores. Sept. 3 The Greenville Indians traveled more than 200 miles to face Butte Valley, the opponent that booted them out of the playoffs last year. With rivalry fueling its play, Greenville struck first blood to lead 6-0. Eventually, Greenville even led 14-6. That was as far as the Indians got, however. Butte Valley started its comeback in the second quarter and led26-14 at halftime. The second half was mainly a defensive game on both sides, with Butte Valley eventually edging out its Plumas County opponent. Sept. 10 The FRC men's soccer team shut out Yuba 4-0 Sept. 2 and Fresno 1-0 Sept. 5 before tying Modesto 1-1 Sept. 6. The women played on the same days, also shutting out Yuba with a final score of 6-0. The women's team took down Sierra 4-1 before losing to Modesto 4-2. The two wins and a tie brought the men's record up to an even 2-2-1. The men's team lost to De Anza and West Hills Lemoore previously in August. The women suffered fflei'r frs oss againsf Modesto to bring their record to 4-1. Sept. 17 Feather River College's volleyball team had its five-game winning streak snapped at the Delta Classic tournament last Saturday when it lost by two points in the fifth game of its match against last year's state champion, Cabrillo. So far, the loss is the only one for the Eagles, who have a 6-1 record. At the tournament FRC also took down Hartnell in three easygames, San Joaquin Delta in Game 4 and Fresno in four games. Sept. 24 The Lady Volcanoes soccer squad scored one goal after another to take a 4-1 lead over Quincy by the half. Two more goals in the second half led to the win that raised Chester's record up to 2-0 in league. Quincy's record dropped to 0-2 in league. Zoie Dalby was Chester's top scorer with three goals. Paige Reed scored two goals and got one assist. Madi VerPlanck scored Chester's other goal. Oct. 1 An early rally by Chabot in the first quarter last Saturday night put the Feather River College football team in catch-up mode from the get-go to result in a 54-27 loss for the Golden Eagles. The result put both teams at a 2-2 record. Chabot's defense set the tone for the game, intercepting FRC's ball after just three plays into the game. Chabot utilized its possession, rushing in for a 2-yard touchdown. Chabot stopped FRC's next drive, and made it Tyler Grant bunts to allow base runners to advance during the playoff showdown May 20 between Chester and Maxwell. The Volcanoes were bumped out of the playoffs by the same team that defeated them in the division championship last year, with a tight 6-5 loss. Photos by James Wilson FIRE DAMAGE? WATER DAMAGE?

After taking down North Tahoe 3-1 last Saturday, the girls' reported record stood undefeated at 6-0-1. The one tie Chester has came earlier in the week, Oct. 1, against Portola. Chester faced a slew of injuries the last few weeks. Hannah Thompson, Savannah Ayers, Haylee Potter and Delaney Dreith were all unable to play in last week's games. All four girls were starters for the Volcanoes. Oct. 15 The Feather River College Lady Golden Eagles soccer team (9-3-1) stunned the Lassen Community College Cougars (2-7-3) on Friday, Oct. 10, as the squad from Quincy blanked the Susanville team on a 5-0 score. Coig a'ed o' oe gates, the FRC defense managed to hold off a pair of shots on goal in the first period, thanks to an elevated level of play from keeper Stacey Cavill. After mounting such a strenuous push against the Cougars, it was then time for the FRC offense to step forward and claim the win. Feather River College's Jordan Desguin lets one loose during the Golden Eagles' game at San Mateo on Feb. 2.2. Desguin struck out nine batters during the eight innings he pitched to contribute to the Eagles" 4-3 win. Photo submitted Oct. 22 It was anyone's guess who would snag the No. 2 spot in the Mid-Valley League standings last week as the Quincy Trojans volleyball team hosted No. 3 Portola for a battle royale that ended with the Tigers falling in straight sets, 25-18, 25-13 and 25-18. The Trojans (23-6, 2-0) came into the match with a single 3-0 (25-14, 25-18, 25-12) league win shutout against Maxwell on Oct. 9.
