Northport will be tough again

March 15, 2012

Jeremiah Johnson leads a solid mound corps

NHS should be strong again, once they can get out of the gym and onto their field—or any field for that matter.

Colville should make another deep softball run

March 15, 2012

Indians should battle Lakeside for NEA flag

Colville High’s high-flying softball program is certainly capable of replicating—and even improving upon—last spring’s fourth place finish at the State 1A Tournament in Spokane.
A break here or there (remember the Connell game?) and the Indians (24-7) could have been playing for a state championship late last May. Colville finished 3-2 at State and was involved in three one-run games.
But that was last year.

There is no reason to believe that the Colville High boy’s and girl’s track teams won’t score their share of points again this spring around the Northeast A League.
The Colville girls, who won the NEA dual meet championship, finished a close second at the regional to Chelan and finished 10th at the State 1A meet at Eastern Washington University, certainly have enough firepower back to replicate last spring’s successes. Ditto for the boys, who finished 15th at State.
