fifth in NEA
Chewelah has concluded its softball regular season. The Cougars are preparing for the first round of the Northeast A League District 7 1A playoffs.
Chewelah finished the regular season with an 8-2 loss to Medical Lake, giving the Cougars a fifth place finish with a 5-13 NEA record and a 6-14 record overall.
The Cougars will again face Medical Lake (7-11, 8-12) on the road Tuesday in the loser-out first round.
Kettle Falls High (11-7, 12-7) will host Freeman (4-14, 5-15) in the opening round (loser-out) of the Northeast A League District 7 1A softball tournament Tuesday at Kettle Falls. Game time is 4:30 p.m.
If the Lady Bulldogs, who finished the regular season with a sweep of visiting Freeman last Friday, can avoid the upset, theyâ€™ll move on to NEA champion Lakeside (Nine Mile Falls) on Saturday for the remainder of the tournament proper.
In the other loser-out game on Tuesday, NEA No. 4 Medical Lake (7-11, 8-12) will host NEA No. 5 Chewelah (5-13, 6-14).
Indians lose at
home to WV
Colville had beaten Great Northern League rival West Valley twice during the regular season, but the fifth-seeded Eagles eliminated fourth-seeded Colville 3-0 last Thursday afternoon on the Colville pitch in the opening round of the District 7 2A playoffs.
The Eagles lost at league champion and unbeaten Cheney 3-0 in the District semifinal on Saturday.
Ian Schimandel scored two second half goals for Cheney.
WV was eliminated.
Colville will host on Thursday
Colville High (18-0, 19-1) will stay home this week to host second and third round games in the District 7 2A (Great Northern League) Tournament.
The league champion Indians, who annexed the GNL pennant by a whopping five games over second place Deer Park (13-5, 15-5), will host a Thursday second round game. CHS will oppose the survivor of the loser-out opener on Tuesday that pits GNL No. 4 East Valley (9-9, 10-10) against visiting GNL No. 5 Cheney (8-10, 10-10).
That game on Thursday at Dean Vaagen Park is scheduled for 4 p.m.
That was the question Danny Holmes posted to his friend, Cody Fairweather, who helped found the local branch of Lake Roosevelt People First. A self-advocacy group founded by and for people with disÂ¬abilities, the organization supports and educates people to speak for themselves, make their own decisions, contribute to their community and become community leaders.
At the Colville School Board meeting on April 24, the board unanimously passed a motion that entailed not renewing a contract with their food supplierâ€”Southwest Foodsâ€”and opting instead to depend on local suppliers for their food sources in the future.
The board agreed that buying local foods would promote quality meals as well as lessen the overall cost inherent in contracting with food suppliers. It will also allow more control over the food served.
