Indians will fill
Colville High exhibited some early-season strength last Saturday at the always tough Deer Park Invitational wrestling meet.
The Indians, who dominated the Northeast A League the past two seasons before moving up to the Class 2A Great Northern League for the two-year enrollment cycle, served notice last Saturday that they will be a power to contend with in the GNL.
With tournament champion Chandler Knight leading the way with a championship at 182, Colville finished fourth in the tournament field with 137 points.
But St. Geo ruins Chewelahâ€™s opener
The Chewelah Cougars boyâ€™s basketball season kicked off the 2012-2013 season last Friday with a game at home against Panorama League power St. Georgeâ€™s.
Unfortunately, shooting trouble from the free throw and three-point lines contributed to the 61-51 loss.
A poor shooting night and foul trouble were the biggest obstacles to overcome for the Cougars, not the 21-point night from St. Geo post Dexter Sienko, according to head coach Rocky Verbeck.
