Colville opens with rival Freeman
Colville High returns more players than anybody in the Great Northern League this fall. The Indians, who struggled to a 3-7, 1-5 record with a group long on inexperience last fall, look to rebound and make things interesting in the rigorous GNL this fall.
Colville ended a frustrating 2012 season with an eye-opening 26-20 win in the mud over Pullman. That upset cost the âHounds an undisputed GNL championship and instilled some confidence in the Indians.
There is no reason not to continue where CHS left off against Pullman last November.
Recently, the national news was rife with the story of U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Ty Carter, the former Spokane resident and North Central High School graduate that was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for bravery in an Oct. 3, 2009 battle in Afghanistanâs Nuristan Province.
Carter, surrounded by press, military, and his family, received his medal from President Barack Obama in a White House ceremony Monday, Aug. 26
Among Carterâs family members were his aunt and uncle, Joyce and Joe Bond of Ferry County.
New coach & some veteran senior talent
There is some serious understatement in play to say that there are a few notable changes in the Colville High School volleyball program this fall.
For one thing, Missy Bennett, who spent 27 years coaching and is a member of the Washington Coachesâ Hall of Fame, is no longer on the sidelines. Bennett is still teaching at CHS, but athletic director Kelly Carr recently hired veteran Kennewick School District coach Ron Schuh to replace one of the Colville School Districtâs coaching icons (see related story).
Veteran coach moves from Tri-Cities
Nearly one year after longtime Colville High volleyball coach Missy Bennett announced her resignation after arguably the most successful career ever turned in by a CHS coach, athletic director Kelly Carr named Ron Schuh of Kennewick to replace her.
The 54-year-old Schuh, who worked as a physical education teacher at Park Middle School in Kennewick prior to being named to succeed Bennett, is excited about the opportunity.
