Josh Konkler and Daulton Burke combined on a one-hitter in the opening game.
The Mustangs took full advantage of walks and hit batters in both games.
“We scattered around 11 hits and used a lot of bases on balls and hit by pitch to have runners on base all day,” NHS head coach Don Baribault said. “We chipped away, but never had that huge inning.

But Indians tested against
Chewelah

The unbeaten Colville High School girl’s tennis team faced a rigorous test on Tuesday when Chewelah’s upstart tennis team, an upset winner of Lakeside last week in Northeast A League tennis play, visited the defending NEA champion Indians.
Chewelah dropped a narrow 3-2 decision earlier this season to Colville.
“That might prove to be a bit more interesting than I had expected,” CHS head coach Phil Johnson said after Chewelah downed always tough Lakeside. “There won’t be any room for error against them.”

Peace sign proposal pulled

April 17, 2012

The Colville City Council chambers turned into an ideological battleground last Tuesday as community mem¬bers volleyed back and forth during a public comment pe¬riod.
The issue at hand was whether or not a trio of local residents should be allowed to turn the “C” into a peace sign on Colville Mountain for Earth Day. The author of the pro¬posal, Peter Quinn, withdrew his proposal, saying he “didn’t mean to offend anyone,” and that his desire to construct the temporary peace sign was not politically motivated.
