Mustangs still havenât been on their field
Despite not having the opportunity to get on their field because of the soggy early-season conditions, Northport Highâs baseball team turned in an auspicious season-opening sweep in Spokane against St. Georgeâs back on March 20.
The Mustangs, who got solid, if not impressive early-season pitching and timely hitting, swamped the Dragons, 14-3, 13-2.
In the opener, Jeremiah Johnson, Brandon Hedrick and Jace Shaw combined on a 13- strikeout no-hitter.
Bulldogs face NWC, Riverside this week
Kettle Falls High got its snow-bound and water-soaked early baseball season underway late last week. The Bulldogs, with only 14 players, most who havenât logged a whole lot of varsity time, lost a tough 4-2 decision (eight innings) to Northeast A League favorite Chewelah last Friday and swept host Liberty Saturday in a Northeast 2B (Bi-County League) doubleheader at Spangle.
KFHS plated 37 runs in 16-0, 21-9 routs of the Lancers.
Craig Cosby was found guilty of Murder in the First Degree by a jury in Stevens County Superior Court Friday afternoon.

Talk about your liquid schedules in a mostly liquid early spring.
Colville High, idle since splitting a season-opening doubleheader at Connell, hopes to get a soggy Hofstetter Field in playing shape this week.
The Indians, who didnât play a scheduled doubleheader last Saturday against Omak (either at home or in Okanogan County), were scheduled to play their Northeast A League baseball opener at Newport on Tuesday. But Newportâs field wasnât in any better shape than Colvilleâs. Whether that one will be rescheduled is anybodyâs guess at this juncture of a wet, cool early spring.
