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 wasn’t prepared to take no for an answer.
“I just figured she would get out there, get dirty and not enjoy it, because it’s pretty rough,” says her mother, Holly Berkeley. “But 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 car…she loves it. I’ve never seen her so passionate about anything else.”

Kettle can’t
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.

“I would have liked to see us play better, but I can’t complain,” Fisk said. “Offensively, we did what we had to do--that’s what counts.”
