Foothill’s Mr. Hustle, Luke Lindsey, helps fuel Cougars past Enterprise and into section finals

If the coaching axiom that hustle never takes a night off is true – and it is – then meet Luke Lindsey, hustle’s posterboy.

The Foothill junior is part spark plug, part Red Bull in a uniform, part gnat at the picnic that you can’t quite swat away. And the sum of those parts is a dynamic floor presence that’s a perfect complement to the scoring ability of the Cougars’ unquestioned senior leader Josiah Hutt and the smooth under-the-radar game of fellow junior Bekdoo Lewis.

Hutt, Foothill gut out 55-50 win over Enterprise in D-III semifinals

The playoff seeding committee meets Saturday to set the playoffs and there’s a good chance Friday’s meeting between the Cougars and Vikings could decide the second seed.

Tri Counties Bank Girls Basketball Player of the Week: Jadyn Matthews, Enterprise

Death, taxes and Jadyn Matthews – some things are just reliable. The Enterprise senior again put up monster numbers helping the Hornets to clinch the Eastern Athletic League title last week with a road win over Pleasant Valley.

The Hornets fell two nights later at Pleasant Valley, but Deaver’s crew bounced back and completed a three-win week last week, handling Red Bluff and rival Shasta at home before dispatching Ceres on Saturday in an MLK showcase game. The trifecta is good enough to earn this week’s Astro Jump Boys Basketball Team of the Week.

Girls Basketball Team of the Week: Enterprise Hornets

To be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. As cliche as it seems, it’s a rallying cry for many teams seeking the heights of their sport.

The Enterprise Hornets took a step toward that axiom with their Eastern Athletic League win Friday over Pleasant Valley, last year’s Division II state runner up. And while this year’s Vikings team is different from last year’s squad, PV beat Enterprise last season in the Northern Section Division III finals and the Hornets want to be in the Vikings’ shoes this year.

The Enterprise senior is next level in the Northern Section, leading in scoring and at the top of most other statistical categories. She’s the first two-time winner of the Shasta County Sports weekly honor.

For the second time in three years, Enterprise begins the football season with a new head coach. Chris Combs officially takes over the program from Russell McWilliams, who started in 2016. Before that, Darren Trueblood and Clay Erro combined for 196 wins across the past 23 years.
