Watch a Dunsmuir Tigers’ basketball game and you’ll notice a presence—a player that demands your attention. That player is Erin Kirch.
A senior, Erin leads the Tigers in scoring and rebounding. He has 14 games in double figures for scoring and nine in rebounds. His
Add it all up and it equals an Impact Player Award.
The Impact Player Award is given on a monthly basis and goes to
Sometimes, it’s not a simple thing to determine which player has the greatest impact on the success of a team. That’s the case with the Weed Cougars varsity basketball team. For example, there’s just 1.4 points per game difference between the leading scorer and the third leading scorer. Statistically, there are several Cougars that are close together in multiple categories. That’s when I go to the coach.
I spoke with Weed coach Mike Carpine, and explained the criteria for the award. Carpine suggested senior forward Aaron Power-Bearden based on his consistent performance during the season.
Consistency is what I also have observed about Aaron. I’ve been following his play for the last three or four years, and he always shows up for game time. Somewhere on the stat sheet you’ll find Aaron with something positive in every game—points, rebounds, steals, or assists. He always seems to contribute in a major way.
Statistically this season, Aaron leads the Cougars in rebounds. He is second in steals and assists, and third in scoring. Aaron also has the best field goal percentage among the starters, and second best free throw percentage. He has scored in double figures nine times this season with a high of 25 points. Aaron is also versatile. He can play the post, run the floor and jack a 3-pointer. (more…)Share on Facebook

DUNSMUIR – The Dunsmuir Tigers took over sole possession of second place in the Evergreen League with a comeback win over the Big Valley Cardinals on Friday night, 65-62. The game came down to the wire, with Nate Gonzales hitting the game winner, and Matt Norton coming up with a swipe to seal the victory.
Big Valley had an early 6-0 lead. After a Dunsmuir time out, Gonzales hit a trey, and followed up with back-to-back deuces, giving the Tigers a 7-6 advantage. The Cardinals came right back with seven straight points to regain the lead 14-7. Then, the court tilted in the Tigers favor, as Dunsmuir ripped off seven in a row. Erin Kirch sandwiched put-backs around a Jake McIntyre freebie to make the score 14-12. A Matt Norton hoop tied the game 14-14 at the end of one quarter.
The Tigers opened the second quarter with a 9-2 run to lead 23-16 about three minutes into the quarter. McIntyre accounted for the first six Tiger points. Big Valley battled back to tie knot the score 29-29, with under a minute to go. A freebie by Zach Shirley gave the Tigers the lead going into the intermission, 30-29.
The Cardinals went up 33-30 early in the third quarter, before M. Norton tied it with a 3-ball, 33-33. Trailing 35-33, LT Hisey dialed long distance, putting Dunsmuir up 36-35. A bucket and then an old fashion 3-point play gave the lead back to

DUNSMUIR – If fans came to the Dunsmuir Lady Tigers versus Big Valley Lady Cardinals game expecting just a basketball game on Friday, they got a bonus—a little WWF style wrestling action. While the Lady Tigers attempted to play basketball,
The Lady Tigers, however, were not intimidated. Instead, the Dunsmuir girls used basketball skills liberally sprinkled with grit to overcome the Cardinals 37-28.
At the end of a rough and tumble first quarter, the combatants were knotted at 4-4, with Dunsmuir’s points coming on hoops by Jamie Kirch and Jennifer Hope.
The Lady Tigers shut out the Cardinals in the second quarter, out scoring their adversary 8-0. Hope started the scoring with a freebie. Fesler hit a bucket to make it 7-4. Dunsmuir increased its lead to 9-4, when Hope hit Sadie Machamer on a nice back door cut. Another Felser basket and Hope free throw completed the scoring in the quarter, giving the Lady Tigers a 12-4 lead going into the locker room.
Dunsmuir opened up the second half scoring with free throws by Hope and Heather Coe to up its lead to 14-4. An intentional foul call against a Lady Cardinal for two-handing a Lady Tiger off the court, led to a pair of freebies by Hope, making the score 16-4. (more…)Share on Facebook

WEED – The COS Screamin’ Eagles rocked the house on Wednesday night, as they turned out the lights on the rival Shasta Knights. Among many highlights, Alden Gibbs put on a slam dunk show for the ages, with a little help from his friends. Gibbs had several jams during the contest, but none more exciting than the one that put the Eagles up 12-6.
Eagle teammate Brian Cummings received a pass too far under the basket to score. So, he flipped the ball back over his head to a high-flying Gibbs who, in one motion, hammered the rock home. The play electrified the crowd and set the tone for the rest of the game.
After Shasta scored, Eagle Andrew McNabb made it 14-8. An ally oop pass from Drew Herrera to Gibbs for another dunk, doubled up the score at 16-8. With the score 18-10, Jeff Williams dialed long distance, extending the lead to 11 points, 21-10. The remainder of the first half was played relatively evenly, and the Eagles went to the locker room with a 36-26 lead.
Dijon Edwards opened the scoring in the second half, giving the Eagles a 38-26 lead. With the score 40-28, the Knights made a run closing the margin to six points at 40-34. Gibbs ended the run with a 3-ball, and then a steal and dunk, upping the lead to 45-34. (more…)Share on Facebook

WEED – It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win for the Mt. Shasta Lady Bears over the Weed Lady Cougars on Tuesday night, 35-25. In a game where both the Bears and Cougars spent large amounts of time wandering aimlessly through the wilderness in search of points, Mt. Shasta found a strong fourth quarter, outscoring Weed 11-3.
At the end of the first quarter, the Lady Bears led 6-2 on a pair of buckets by Rachel Abbot and a hoop by Amanda Amesbury.
It took over two minutes for either squad to score in the second quarter. Weed’s Sierra Skeen was first to notch a basket to make the score 6-4. Lori Garcia tied it at 6-6. Taylor Hansen put the Lady Bears back in front 8-6, but that was the last tally for

One of the most important positions on a soccer field is the center-midfielder. The center-mid needs to be able to pass, shoot, and play defense, as well as act as a “quarterback” on the field. Great conditioning is a must.
Because of its importance to both defense and offense, the center-midfielder has a major impact on how a game is played and the success of the team. For the Yreka Miners, Ross Perry plays the center-midfield position.
In Northern Athletic League play, Perry leads the Miners in goals and is second in assists, as well as third in steals. Perry takes the majority of free kicks, and penalty kicks for the Miners.
Add it all up and it equals an Impact Player Award for Yreka Miner Ross Perry.
The Impact Player Award is given on a monthly basis and goes to
A total of four awards are given each month and are not school specific; they can go to a player at any school that Siskiyou Youth covers.
