Indians split with DP, Pullman

An issue that has plagued the Colville High girl’s basketball team all season long came into play last Saturday evening against visiting Pullman. The Indians (7-7, 3-3) turned in subpar second and third quarters offensively and that was just enough of a cushion for the Greyhounds (10-5, 6-1), who had to withstand a fourth quarter CHS rally to post a 48-43 win.
Back on Jan. 15, Colville blasted host Deer Park (0-15, 0-7) 62-16.

“Go on inside,” he says in welcome. “Nicole’s got the table set and we’re just waiting on the steaks.”
