Tiana Berkeley knows what she wants and her apparently quiet, but steadfast persistence gets her just that. So when she asked her parents to let her try her hand at stock car racing two years ago, she wasnât prepared to take no for an answer.
âI just figured she would get out there, get dirty and not enjoy it, because itâs pretty rough,â says her mother, Holly Berkeley. âBut when she got out there (on the track) she was enjoying it so much, and to see her big smile when she got out of the carâŠshe loves it. Iâve never seen her so passionate about anything else.â

lead the way
Last Wednesday afternoon, Colville hosted both the East Valley Knights and Clarkston Bantams in a Great Northern League double duel cross- country race at Dominion Meadows Golf Course, arguably the best location in the Great Northern League.
The CHS harriers entered competition as decisive underdogs. By the end of the day, that designation was in serious question as the Indians ran what coach Dean Fischer called their best team effort of the season.
hold late lead
The Chewelah Cougars broke into the win column last Friday night with a come from behind 13-12 victory over Northeast A League rival, Kettle Falls.
While the Cougars didnât play their best game, they did enough on both sides of the ball to earn their first win of the season. That was good enough for head coach Jim Fisk, whose mostly inexperienced team has struggled this fall.
âI would have liked to see us play better, but I canât complain,â Fisk said. âOffensively, we did what we had to do--thatâs what counts.â
class for Keating
Colville High senior Matt Hubbard has made an oral commitment to play for coach Kerry Keatingâs Santa Clara Broncos.
The 6-9 Hubbard, an All-Great Northern League and Northeast A League pick his first three years at CHS and the teamâs leading scorer and rebounder all three seasons, says heâs excited to be heading to the West Coast Conference school.
âIt feels so good to have gotten through the whole recruiting process,â one of the top prep players in the Northwest said last week. âIt was pretty stressful toward the end of it.â
