Colville High seniors Erin Little, Lexi Lehman, Ryley Wittmeyer, Ashley Knight and Tasji Urhausen reflect on a memorable 2011 volleyball season in a post-championship interview with former CHS teacher, coach and longtime âVoice of the Valley,â KCVL/KCRK sports announcer, Larry Pember.
In a game played alternately in rain and snow, Royal came from behind in the second half to post a wild 38-35 win over host Colville Saturday afternoon and advance to the quarterfinals of the State 1A football playoffs. Colvilleâs (5-5) unlikely run into the playoffs after an 0-4 start looked like it might continue after the Indians took an early 14-0 lead.
