A busy week on tap
Colville High (1-1) split a pair of high school soccer matches last week to get the 2013 boyâ€™s soccer season underway.
Back on March 12, Colville downed new Northeast A League member Medical Lake 4-2. On Thursday, another very good Cheney High team dispatched the Indians 6-0 on the Colville pitch. That match was the Great Northern League opener for both schools.
Colville will travel to Deer Park on Tuesday to face the Stags in a GNL match-up (4 p.m. start).
opens a few eyes
A Colville High track and field team that includes more than a few new faces this spring got the 2013 high school season underway last Saturday at the 16-team West Valley Invitational.
CHS head coach Ty Brown said that going into the mid-March shakedown cruise the goal was to get a feel for what the Indians have this spring as they embark on a new two-year adventure back in the Great Northern League.
Colville High hosted Chewelah and Northport in an impromptu three-team baseball Jamboree last Friday afternoon. The Jamboree, with each team playing three-inning â€śgames,â€ť served as a warm-up for this weekâ€™s schedule.
Colville opens the season on Tuesday at home when they host Great Northern League pre-season favorite East Valley in a single game (4 p.m. start) at Hofstetter Park. The Indians of head coach Boo Morrison travel to Deer Park for a GNL twin-bill with the Stags on Saturday (noon start). On Tuesday, March 26, CHS is at West Valley (4 p.m. start).
Should the city do anything about deer inside the city limits?
There seemed to be controversy and concern about the issue of a seemingly growing whitetail deer herd in spring of 2011, when a local resident Mike Kisman brought complaints to the Colville City Council Chambers. Kisman thought there was a deer control issue that the city needed to address.
Kisman is not listed in the telephone book and could not be reached for comment on this article.
