Twelve Shasta County wrestlers have reached the semifinals after the opening day of the Northern Section Masters wrestling championships on Thursday at the Redding Civic Auditorium. Another 27 are still alive in the consolation bracket with 1-1 records. Among the semifinalists are top-seeds Rocky Raby of West Valley at 132 pounds and Earnest Wilson of Foothill at 145 pounds.
Enterprise capped its 23-5, 10-0 EAL regular season with blowout wins over Shasta and Chico last week and assured itself that the road to the D-III crown runs through the Hornets. For that, the Hornets are the Shasta County Sports Girls Basketball Team of the Week for the third time this season.
The Enterprise girls carved through the Eastern Athletic League, going 10-0 in league play and 23-5 over all.
As expected, the Hornets grabbed the No. 1 seed in Division III when the playoff seeding committee met today in Chico. Enterprise has a first-round bye and will draw the winner of the game between No. 4 Red Bluff and No. 5 Shasta.
Jayden Gordon is among a handful of players to sign to schools on Wednesday, including West Valley’s Devin Low, who signed to play football for Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Mont, and Enterprise’s Sydney Whetstone, who is inked to play basketball at Pacific Union College in Napa.
For Shasta, it was a night where everything clicked. For Enterprise, it was a wake-up call.
The Wolves came out from the gate, raced out to a 17-point halftime lead and never looked back en route to a 75-58 win over the Hornets on Tuesday at Harlan Carter Gym.
The Foothill girls basketball team is having its best season in 15 years. The proof is in record … and playoff points released by the Northern Section today. The Cougars are No. 2 in Division III heading into the final week of the regular season, having jumped Pleasant Valley since the initial playoff points release last week. 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.
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.
Matthews dropped 32 in the 64-59 victory over the Vikings, the reigning section champions. She followed that up with a 22 and 11 night in a 65-55 win over Red Bluff. Her efforts earned Matthews the Tri Counties Bank Girls Basketball Player of the Game honors for Week 10. It’s the second consecutive week she’s grabbed the honor and the fourth time this season.
The Chico High wrestling team began the postseason the same way it has for the past 11 years — with a league title.

Enterprise can’t keep the fire going as the Hornets fall short to Pleasant Valley.
It should be no surprise that the Enterprise girls basketball team has the top spot in Division III in the first round of playoff points, released by the Northern Section this week.
The 19-5 Hornets are tops in record and divisional record and No. 2 in strength of schedule (SOS), earning 4 points. The playoff point formula takes into account those three factors to rank teams. The playoff committee meets Feb. 9 to set the brackets.
The Pleasant Valley High girls basketball team led by nine with about 5 ½ minutes left in the third quarter of Tuesday‘s monumental showdown at home against Eastern Athletic League leader Enterprise.
When it all comes together, it’s a beautiful thing.
For the past few weeks, the players on the Enterprise High have accepted their roles.
It isn’t just that Jadyn Matthews might be the most complete girls basketball player in the Northern Section. It’s that Matthews makes those around he better too.
Nearing the end of January and it’s the Hornets who have the rhythm everyone is longing for.
If one thing is confirmed after Thursday night, it’s that the Hornets are on a different planet compared to the rest of the Northern Section.
Jim Deaver knew his Enterprise boys basketball team was getting close. The Hornets had been on a roller coaster of wins and losses before a 45-42 overtime loss to rival Foothill. In the loss, the east siders had shown moxie and a fire. 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.
Khristian Clements had a monster week last week, averaging 14 points in Enterprise’s three wins and earns the Tri Counties Bank Boys Basketball Player of the Week for Week 8.
Years ago, when I was at the newspaper, I wrote a basketball piece where I highlighted those kids who I loved watching. Not because they would fill up the basket with points, but because they were solid contributors who came to the job daily and just worked. I called them the Lunch Pail Gang.
School lets out for Shasta and Enterprise around 2:30 p.m. every day but Wednesday.
Thursday night, the Hornets’ boys basketball team used a little night school to earn a 51-42 win over crosstown rival Shasta. The annual rivalry game featured courses in history, arithmetic, chemistry and physics.
At the midpoint of the season, the Hornets are finally settling into their roles and starting to figure it out.
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.
You don’t have to be a die-hard hoop head to be able to make a case for Jadyn Matthews to win the Tri Counties Bank Girls Basketball Player of the Week nearly every week. 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.
There’s still a ton of basketball still to be played between now and the section finals in late February. But the start of league, it’s time to take a look at those players that have stepped up their game over the preseason and enter league as legitimate MVP candidates.
Foothill might be the favorite in the Eastern Athletic League entering Tuesday’s league-opener with rival Enterprise but the Cougars got a bit of a wake-up call.

West Valley High’s wrestling team won the NorCal ‘Beast of the North’ 2019 wrestling tournament Saturday at Anderson High School.
The Enteprise girls basketball team showed why it’s one of the best, if not the best, team in the Northern Section on Friday, gutting out a 51-38 win over U-Prep that was closer than the final score indicated in the four-team Lady Hornet Classic.
West Valley is finding a recipe for success through the first month of the season: get the jump shots going early on and wear teams down by attacking the rim to close it out.
For the first four minutes, the Hornets looked like they were still enjoying Christmas break.
We hope you’re enjoying family, friends and the traditions we all hold dear.
As we all pause to celebrate the season, we’d like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Shasta County Sports team – TJ, Aaron, Tracy and Mike.
Enterprise senior Jadyn Matthews was honored last week with the Region 8 Player of the Week award by MaxPreps and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.
Enterprise girls basketball coach Anthony Williams wasn’t worried when his Hornets were down 9-3 after the first eight minutes of play Saturday against Foothill at the Rally in the Valley at Central Valley High School.
Williams’ Hornets continued to shoot and found their shot in the third period, racing to a 63-48 win.
The 2018 All Northern Section volleyball team was announced today and Shasta County saw eight players land on the three teams, including three first-team selections.

With a full week or more under our belts, it’s time for the ladies. The 45th annual Harlan Carter basketball tournament tips off Thursday at Shasta High School and runs through the championship game on Saturday. The Enterprise Hornets are defending champions and look to make it two in a row. They open against Willows, while fellow district school Foothill opens with Placer and the host Shasta Wolves have Eureka at 7 p.m. Thursday in the marquee game. Other schools include Chico and Sacramento High.
The girls got next. That’s right, it’s the girls turn to shine as the 45th annual Harlan Carter girls basketball tournament tips off Thursday at Shasta High School. The Shasta Union High School District trio – Shasta, Foothill and Enterprise – are joined by Placer, Chico, Eureka, Willows and Sacramento for this weekend’s action.
The Enterprise girls basketball team lived up to that principle last week, going 3-1 and showing a moxie in its lone loss. For its efforts, the Enterprise girls team is this week’s Shasta County Sports girls basketball Team of the Week.
Here’s a compilation of the various all-league teams from throughout the Northern Section. The all league selections are based on league bylaws and coach voting. The All-Section volleyball teams, voted upon by media members from throughout the north state, will be release soon.
The No. 1 returning players in the Shasta County Sports countdown is living up to the hype. Jadyn Matthews has her Enterprise team off to a 3-1 start prior to this week’s Harlan Carter girls tournament and all section first team player last year is playing like an MVP thus far. She’s this week’s girls Player of the Week.
It might have been a defining moment in his four-year varsity basketball career. Josiah Hutt, the unquestioned on-court leader of the Foothill Cougars, did not start Saturday’s championship game of the Harlan Carter Invitational. He and a teammate were late and for Cougars’ coach Bill Elliott, rules are rules.
It’s how you respond the next play. Vallejo out matched Enterprise’s stellar first half with an even better second half for the Red Hawks to win 54-43 Saturday for third place in the 49th annual Harlan Carter Invitational.

Hustle one night, high energy the next. Combining those two traits with a growing confidence has translated into wins on back-to-back nights for the Cougars.
The future is set for Enterprise High’s Shelby Keltner. Well, at least the next five years.

One thing the Cougars have going for them early on in the season is hustle. With it, anything is possible for a young squad.
Basketball in the North State officially began Monday, but the Harlan Carter is the first real taste of action for hoop heads. The fundraiser for the Shasta Union High School District programs, this year’s Harlan Carter is back to an 8-team bracket after experimenting with a 6-team, round-robin format last year.

One week is in the books for the Northern Section high school football season. Even with only that one game played, there is quite a bit of shakeup in the weekly Media Poll.
Enterprise High’s football team lost its season-opener 51-14 to McQueen of Reno, Nev., Friday night at the Hornets’ Nest.
Two-hundred, eighty days. That’s how long its been since both Foothill and West Valley took the field, losing in the Northern Section semifinals in their respected divisions.
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.
Chris Combs ushers in a new era for Enterprise football as the new head coach for the Hornets. He takes over a program that has struggled with consistency the past three seasons, a stretch of three straight losing campaigns. Combs has his guy at quarterback in third-year varsity player Leslie Cummings, who has the capabilities to be dynamic with both his arm and his legs if he stays healthy. That’s the big question mark this season.
