Ray Clark, Al Bushnell back to lead Colville

November 30, 2011

It could be another interesting winter for Colville High girl’s basketball.
The Indians, who finished 17-5 last season, lost five key seniors off a veteran club, but they return a solid nucleus of players and some promising newcomers that could pull some surprises in the competitive Northeast A League this winter.
Colville also returns a couple of familiar names and faces that have been actively involved with Colville girl’s basketball for many years.

A Royal bummer: Knights come from behind to beat Colville

November 16, 2011

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. Colville’s (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.

Pietroburgo, Carpenter lead Indians to second again

Saving their best race of the season for last, Colville High School’s boy’s cross-country team ran its way to second place at the Washington State Championship Saturday at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.
In what have must have felt like déjà vu, the local harriers, led by senior Biagio Pietroburgo’s fifth place and Kevin Carpenter’s 8th place finish, annexed the runner-up spot behind Northeast A League rival Lakeside. It was Colville’s second straight runner-up finish at Pasco.

Short Shots...

November 3, 2011

It’s playoff time around the Northeast Washington prep sports scene.
High school football playoffs (Crossover/so-called Play-in games) are the featured events this weekend. Colville will host Omak and their Caribou-Trail League Player of the Year, 5-9, 215-pound running back Dylan Green.
Green, who holds most of the No. 4 seeded Pioneers rushing records, including a school single game mark established earlier this season, was also named to the first team defense as a linebacker.
The burly senior is a load and is the focal point of any opposing defense.
