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.

Watching the skies: Wind and wildfires

September 12, 2012

Though recent strong winds haven’t been much to brag about in terms of breaking any records, that hasn’t 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.
“It sucks, the whole being able to breathe thing,” says Thomas Howard, 24. “I had to close all the windows in my apartment (Sunday night).”

Indians move up to GNL

Colville High lost some key components off last November’s Class 1A state runner-up team, but the Indians certainly have enough left in the tank to make for an interesting reintroduction into the Class 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians will be led by third year varsity standout Kevin Carpenter. The junior finished eighth and got a spot on the podium at last November’s State 1A meet at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.

Defending state 1A champions will be a force in 2A GNL

One of strongest-ever CHS teams

If Colville High were slotted where it belonged, back in the Northeast A League, the Indians would certainly be favorites to successfully defend the 1A championship they won last November in Yakima.
That said, the Indians, who return to the Class 2A Great Northern League this fall for a two-season run, will be a force to contend with in their old league. Under longtime coach Missy Bennett, entering her 27th season at the helm, Colville was always a power in the GNL.

Northport will be competitive

August 31, 2012

Jeremiah Johnson leads Mustangs

Northport turned a few heads when they finished third in the Northeast 1B North division after being picked to finish in the basement of what, historically, has been the toughest eight-man football conference in Washington state.
Replicating that 6-5 record and the first playoff appearance by a Northport football team in the so-called “modern era” could be a difficult task in 2012. But veteran coach Don Fox, assisted once again by his son, Shane, has some solid holdover talent back.

Football journey nears an end for Kegel

It has been an interesting ride for this minister’s son and former small town and small college football star to the cusp of parenthood and the wild vagaries of European professional football.
And no, we are not talking about the other futbol.
So it goes for one of the best all-around athletes and football players to ever snap on a chin-strap for Columbia High School (Hunters).
