Northport High got more solid pitching and timely hitting in a 10-0, 13-3 sweep of Columbia/Inchelium back on April 10.
Josh Konkler and Daulton Burke combined on a one-hitter in the opening game.
The Mustangs took full advantage of walks and hit batters in both games.
â€śWe scattered around 11 hits and used a lot of bases on balls and hit by pitch to have runners on base all day,â€ť NHS head coach Don Baribault said. â€śWe chipped away, but never had that huge inning.
Kettle loses tough outing
Kettle Falls High (3-5, 3-6) got a key outing from junior right-hander Tyler Vining when they needed it last Saturday and the Bulldogs were able to salvage a doubleheader split with league-leading Lind-Ritzville/Sprague at home.
After Kettle Falls dropped a 12-1 decision in the opener to the Broncos, the Bulldogs were able to ride Viningâ€™s second sterling outing of the week to a 5-1 win. It was the first win of last weekâ€™s four- game set against LRS and perennial 2B power Colfax.
But Indians tested against
The unbeaten Colville High School girlâ€™s tennis team faced a rigorous test on Tuesday when Chewelahâ€™s upstart tennis team, an upset winner of Lakeside last week in Northeast A League tennis play, visited the defending NEA champion Indians.
Chewelah dropped a narrow 3-2 decision earlier this season to Colville.
â€śThat might prove to be a bit more interesting than I had expected,â€ť CHS head coach Phil Johnson said after Chewelah downed always tough Lakeside. â€śThere wonâ€™t be any room for error against them.â€ť

The Colville City Council chambers turned into an ideological battleground last Tuesday as community memÂ¬bers volleyed back and forth during a public comment peÂ¬riod.
The issue at hand was whether or not a trio of local residents should be allowed to turn the â€śCâ€ť into a peace sign on Colville Mountain for Earth Day. The author of the proÂ¬posal, Peter Quinn, withdrew his proposal, saying he â€śdidnâ€™t mean to offend anyone,â€ť and that his desire to construct the temporary peace sign was not politically motivated.
