The week ahead: NU seniors to sign letters today

This week ahead in Western Nevada County begins with one of the most exciting days for collegiate football – national signing day for high school athletes.

Two Nevada Union football players, Andrew Jackson and James Brindley, will make their college choice officials at 7:30 a.m. in Ali Gymnasium during their football physical education class.

Jackson will sign with Fresno State next fall and Brindley will head to Utah State.

The Forest Lake Christian boys and girls basketball teams both have important league games on the horizon. On Friday, the two teams will host Woodland Christian in part of FLC’s winter homecoming festivities.

Woodland Christian gave the Falcon girls team its first league loss in nearly four years, winning 60-47, but now must go on the road for the rematch. The two teams are currently tied for second-place in the Central Valley Christian League and another loss for either team will make it tough to catch undefeated league leader, Sacramento Waldorf.

Then on Tuesday, the Falcons travel to fourth-place Victory Christian.

The Falcons’ boys are locked in a close battle for third with Woodland Christian, Country Day and FLC – all with three losses. The first time the Falcons faced Woodland this season, they finished with a heartbreaking 68-62 loss.

The Nevada Union boys basketball must travel to Grant on Tuesday for a Metro conference showdown. The last game, played at Nevada Union, was all Miners with Nevada Union coming away with a 66-52 win.

Kennedy trailing the Miners with one more loss in the Metro standings and a rematch still looming, Nevada Union can’t afford taking a tumble at Grant.
