Quincy topples Chester in extra innings James Wilson Sports Reporter Run after run was racked up on both sides of the score- board last Friday, March 22, when the Quincy Trojans took on the host Chester Volcanoes. The game went into an extra innings before the Trojans made two more runs to win 13-11. Still in the beginning weeks of the season, Quin- cy's win brought the teams record up to 2-1. Chester's loss dropped its record to 4-3 overall. "We're always happy when we get a win," said Quincy's coach Bob Hatzell before adding, "But it is still early in the season and we have some rough spots we need to iron out." The two teams handed the lead back and forth the en- tire game, until the score was tied in the bottom of the seventh. The game, well at- tended on both sides, proved to be a nail biter. "The best thing that came out of this game was our bats came alive and we never gave up," said Chester's coach Terry Hernandez. "If we can play mistake-free ball with those live bats we will be a force Volcanoes to strike out three batters. Cody McDonald started for Quincy, and struck out six in the first three innings. Jake Hatzell closed for the Trojans and stuck out two. All the pitchers had some problems finding the strike zone; Chester walked eight batters in total and Quincy walked five. Chester only al- lowed eight hits and Quincy allowed 12 during the game. The Volcanoes struck first blood in the bottom of the first: Quincy came back in the third with a three-run rally. in our divtgio'rl.':. ..... , ...............

Photo by Maddie Musante Lady Eagles split 4 games James Wilson Sports Reporter The Feather River College softball team went on the road last weekend for two double- headers. On Friday, March 22, the Eagles faced off against Lassen, winning the first game 7-6 and the second game 9-8. The following day Feather River lost both games to Shas- ta College 6-5 after being up the majority of the game. The outcomes put FRC at 7-3 in conference. Feather River's wins over Lassen were due in large part to the team's pitching. Brittany Klapper closed both games to save the team. The Eagles' as- sistant coach, Heather Kelley, attributes the teams' wins to a full team effort. "We played very well," said Kelley. "We had a few errors, but nothing too crucial. Our offense was there and our pitching was really good. It was a group effort all, around." In the first game, Julianna Waller hit a two-run home run to give Feather River the lead and win the game. In their games against Shasta, the Eagles had a lead through the fifth inningin both games. Shasta came back to win by a single run both times. "They were a really good team," commented Kelley about Shasta. "They did all the little things right and we had a few shaky errors on de- fense that killed us. When they'come to Quincy, though, it's going to be a different ball game." ,; Shasta is leading the Gold- en Valley Conference with a 10-0 record in conference play. The Eagles are second. Feather River plays at Butte March 27 and at the Redwoods April 5. The team's next home game is against Lassen on April 13.
