Madonna, Cabbage lead Indians to perfect week

April 9, 2013

No ‘Spring Break’ for
busy CHS

In a wacky, strange piece of scheduling and rescheduling that saw the streaking Colville High softball team (10-1) play seven games in an eight-day stretch during the so-called Spring Break, the Indians and rubber-armed pitcher McKenna Cabbage thrived.
Spring Break? Not for CHS.
The Indians, 9-0 in Great Northern League play and two games clear of second place West Valley and Deer Park, got shutout performances from Cabbage in five of those seven games.

Colville baseball team looks for a little Mojo

April 9, 2013

It has been a tough stretch for the Colville High baseball team. The Indians (2-7) have lost six straight in the tough Great Northern League and head into the post-Spring Break portion of their schedule looking for a little Mojo and some good fortune.
“The most important thing right now is that our team believes that we’re going to start winning soon,” CHS head coach Boo Morrison said of his team’s rough stretch. “Baseball is a crazy game. We’re not getting any balls to bounce our way right now and we’re not catching any breaks.

Indians may be the league surprise

Colville High (6-4) has been more than competitive to date in the rigorous Great Northern League 2A soccer race.
Yes, hindsight is always a 20/20 proposition, but just think where the Indians would be if they were situated where student enrollment numbers indicate that they should be—in the Northeast A League.
Like we said, hindsight and better accounting practices are always 20/20. Maybe the math will be more accurate on the next WIAA student count.
But we digress.

Author goes ‘Between’ worlds with new book

April 8, 2013

Like most novel writers, there is more to Kerry Schafer than meets the eye. On the surface, she appears soft-spoken, her presence comforting and a good listener, which probably goes hand-in-hand with her job as a counselor at NEW Alliance Counseling. One might not make the connection that she is the author of the new fantasy novel Between, an engaging narrative that avoids the usual traps and stereotypes that said novels can fall into and makes the reader wonder if they are dreaming while awake.
