Colville Highâ€™s Chandler Knight (182) finished third at Friday and Saturdayâ€™s XXV Mat Classic at the Tacoma Dome to help lead the Indians to a ninth place finish (52.5 points).
Teammate Trenton Welton finished fifth at 138 pounds and Colvilleâ€™s 152-pound standout, Tanner Smith, capped a stellar high school career with a sixth place finish.
The Indiansâ€™ Grady Nelson (132), Ian Cox (138) and Ryley Smith (152) did not place.
The Colville High girlâ€™s basketball season came to an abrupt and disappointing end back on Feb. 12 when visiting Cheney escaped with a 35-33 win in District 7 2A loser-out action.
CHS junior Sadie Learn led the Indians with 11 points.
This one was close throughout. A 13-9 fourth quarter run for the Blackhawks was just enough. CHS (10-11) had its chances down the stretch, but some late misfires from the field and the free throw line (six of 15) didnâ€™t help.
The Chewelah Cougars boysâ€™ basketball season came to an end Saturday with a 73-47 loss to Cashmere High School in the third place/loser-out game of the 1A Bi-District tournament in Omak.
The Cougars were in the third place game by virtue of pulling out an incredible 53-50, come-from-behind win over Northeast A League rival Lakeside on Friday night.
The Cougars finished with a 19-6 overall record and won the NEA title with an unblemished 12-0 record.
