It was a short drive down Highway 395 to the manicured fairways of the Chewelah Golf & Country Club last Tuesday for Colville Highâs cross-country team. It took even less time than the drive for the local harriers to dispatch the over-matched Cougars. Under mostly sunny skies, the late afternoon confrontation between the Cougars and Indians provided little suspense, but was long on entertainment as both teams struggled to navigate the sparsely marked, tree-lined course.
After getting close to high-powered Wellpinit (3-0, 6-1) back in early September, Northport High faithful had every reason to believe that the second time around would be different and the Mustangs might pull off a monumental upset.

The result was a lopsided 58-18 loss to fourth-ranked Wellpinit in a key Northeast 1B North eight-man game at Northport last Friday night.
