CHS back in
Colville High, who made some inroads last season in their final fling in the 2A Great Northern girlâs soccer league, will be a player and a factor in the retooled and improved Northeast A League this fall.
The Indians and Deer Park both relocated from the GNL to the NEA this fall. That will make for a more competitive league.
âWe should be in the mix,â figured head coach Dave Rarrick, the Dean of NEA soccer coaches (entering his 17th season with the CHS girls program). âThere are a lot of new faces in the league.â
Kettle Falls got the 2014 season started last week with a Jamboree at Republic. The Lady Bulldogs, who moved down from the Northeast A League to the Northeast 2B this fall, will get the regular season started on Tuesday at Republic High (6 p.m. start for varsity girls).
KFHS will travel to Colville High on Monday, Sept. 15 for a match-up with the CHS junior varsity (6:15 p.m. start).
The Lady Bulldogs will stay on the road for a Sept. 16 non-league match-up at Springdale (Mary Walker). The varsity match will get underway at 6 p.m.

Colville High (1-0) used a gritty, opportunistic defense to hold off Cheney and record a 12-10 non-league, opening season win at home last Friday night.
Colville, who finished second in the Great Northern 2A league last season, has moved back into the Northeast A League, where the Indians have been installed as one of the pre-season favorites, along with defending 1A champion Freeman. But CHS likes to schedule rigorous early-season opposition. In Cheney and West Valley (on the road this Friday), CHS certainly has accomplished that in spades.
