Lakeside rolls over Colville

September 7, 2011

Going into the season, Colville High head coach Randy Cornwell knew there would be nights like this. In one of the worst beatings a CHS football team has absorbed in many years, the decidedly inexperienced Indians dropped a 41-7 decision to visiting Lakeland High last Friday night. For the Indians, who lost some key personnel to graduation on a 2010 team that finished 9-1, the inexperience was evident against a Lakeland team that was playing its second game of the season. The Hawks opened the season with a loss in Coeur d’ Alene to Lake City.

Chewelah cross-country has fresh faces

September 7, 2011

The Jenkins High School (Chewelah) cross-country team has a bunch of fresh faces on the boys and girls teams this season to compliment returning state qualifier Christina Hall.
Head coach Pat Kostecka is still sorting out who is going to be running for his varsity, but he figures the Cougars are definitely ready for the challenge.
“We’re not a very big school, but we have 26 kids out for cross-country which I’m very happy about, and of those 26, we have 17 freshmen,” said coach Kostecka. “So the leadership aspect of having Christina back is huge.”

Colville Food Bank needs help now

September 7, 2011

It’s customary for the S-E to check in with the Colville Food and Resource Center during near the beginning of fall, as the holiday season peaks over the horizon. This year, fall was too far away, according to CFRC Director Frani Roberts.
“Usually, I wait until the end of September, but I have to get the word out now,” says Roberts, motioning to the scant, nearly bare shelves in the food bank. “We’re hurting and we need all the help we can get.”

Northport ready for competition

September 2, 2011

When you take the challenge of trying to resurrect a high school football program that hadn’t fielded a team since you were a young man, the task is nothing but daunting. After all, football teams aren’t built in a season. Some aren’t built in a century. So it goes at Northport High, where veteran high school football coach Don Fox came out of retirement down the road at Rice and agreed to help rebuild football. Well, Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will a competitive Mustangs’ football team. But progress has been made.
