Indians dominate Lakeland Invite
Colville Highâs defending 1A volleyball champions dominated last Saturdayâs high-powered Lakeland Invitational (Rathdrum, Idaho) volleyball tournament. It was Colvilleâs second straight Lakeland Invitational title.
Cougars get an
elusive win over Indians
The Chewelah Cougars played the Colville Indians last Friday in the annual 395 showdown in Colville. The Cougars broke a recent string of losses to the Indians on this evening, coming away with an impressive 45-21 victory.
Turnovers in an opening game loss to Deer Park were costly to the Cougars, but on this night, Chewelah kept ahold of the ball and turned three Colville turnovers into key scoring drives.
Though recent strong winds havenât been much to brag about in terms of breaking any records, that hasnât stopped the weather from posing a threat to local homeowners and fire districts.
Smoke from lightning-sparked fires in areas of Central and Eastern Washington shrouded the skies over the Colville Valley last Sunday evening and Monday morning, causing some residents to experience discomfort from smoke inhalation.
âIt sucks, the whole being able to breathe thing,â says Thomas Howard, 24. âI had to close all the windows in my apartment (Sunday night).â
