Different league—another run

March 13, 2013

Indians still have plenty of weapons

Colville High’s high-flying softball program will look a little different this spring for a couple of reasons.
First, the Indians are back in the familiar confines of the 2A Great Northern League for at least a two-year WIAA enrollment cycle. And second, assistant coach Jim Ebel has been elevated to head coach after Mandy Sumner, who guided the Indians to the cusp of a State 1A championship the past two seasons, resigned. Gone with Sumner is her husband, assistant coach Rob Sumner.

The return of the pole vault to CHS track & field

March 13, 2013

Indians also return to 2A GNL

By Colville High track and field coach Ty Brown’s recollection, it’s been several years since the Indians have been outside for pre-season practice sessions for day one.
Well, welcome to the relatively balmy spring of 2013 (so far).
Brown and the Indians will take it. It fact, CHS had glorious upper 50’s, bright sunny conditions for their annual Black and White inter-squad Jamboree last Saturday with Kettle Falls.

Despite move up to 2A, Indians should be in the mix

March 13, 2013

Like most Colville High School athletic teams, the move up from the Northeast A League to the rigors of the 2A Great Northern League likely didn’t do the Indians’ baseball team any favors this spring.
But you control what you can control. And the vagaries of student enrollment counts aren’t among things in the control of a coach.
You play who has been scheduled.
“It’s a new challenge,” CHS head coach Boo Morrison said of the move to 2A. “It’s a tough league.”
