Columbia-Inchelium visits Northport on Friday

September 15, 2011

Columbia-Inchelium (1-1), coming off a lackluster 26-14 loss at Wilbur-Creston last Friday, will travel to Northport (1-1) Friday night in a key Northeast B-8 football match-up with the Mustangs. Game time is 7 p.m. Columbia-Inchelium head coach Chuck Wyborney wasn’t pleased with the way his team played against the Wildcats. And the veteran coach placed the blame squarely on himself and his coaching staff.

Indians split pair

September 15, 2011

Colville High opened the high school girl’s soccer season last week with a split of games. In their season opener on Sept. 7 against Priest River, Colville won 9-0. Striker Tasha Luu scored four goals and Dana Andres added two more. In last Friday’s 7-1 loss at home to Shadle Park of the Greater Spokane League, Luu scored Colville’s lone goal in the first half. Shadle Park outshot CHS 17 to 9.

Balls & Chain Walleye tourney on Sept. 24

September 15, 2011

The fourth annual Balls & Chain Walleye Tournament will be held Saturday, Sept. 24. The tournament will launch at the Kettle Falls Marina (Old Kettle). The tournament was created after its founder, Casey McKern of Kettle Falls, was seriously injured in a swimming accident that left him paralyzed from the collarbone down. During his convalescence and through the challenges of recovery, the Kettle Falls community did what it always does—come together to help a community member and his family.

Colville wins high-powered Lakeland Invitational

September 14, 2011

It’s something of a testament to how talented the current Colville High volleyball team is when the Indians annex the high-powered Lakeland Invitational championship and coach Missy Bennett says her team didn’t play as well as it could have.
It’s only September.
Next to the Crossover Tournament, the annual Lakeland Invitational likely has the best field of any tournament the Indians will play in this fall.
Okay, the State 1A Tournament counts for something. After all, this team has some lofty goals this fall.

Pitt, Norvell win Chewelah Open Best Ball/Scramble

September 14, 2011

The Chewelah Golf & Country Club held its annual Open Best Ball/Scramble last weekend. The tournament proper was 54 holes.
The team of Chewelah Golf & Country Club PGA Profes¬sional Jason Pitt and his partner, Payton Norvell, won the gross division in the championship flight with a 194 total. The duo of Colville’s Kent Brown and Spokane’s Kevin Braegeer finished second, five shots behind.
In the net division of the championship flight, the team of Chewelah’s Brenton Harting and Randy Kirby from Spokane finished first ahead of Chewelah golfers Dave Tupek and Pat Monasmith.

Omak overpowers Kettle Falls

September 8, 2011

Maybe it’s time to stop scheduling Omak High for the football season opener (hint to Kettle Falls Athletic Director, Brian Golphenee). Kettle Falls High absorbed a second straight lopsided, season-opening loss to the Pioneers last Friday night, falling 49-15 in Okanogan County. Omak, behind the running of 5-9, 216-pound bowling ball on wheels, Dylan Green, put up 49 points in the first three quarters to overpower the Bulldogs, who were able to move the ball effectively against a larger school with a roster of 20 seniors.

Lakeside rolls over Colville

September 7, 2011

Going into the season, Colville High head coach Randy Cornwell knew there would be nights like this. In one of the worst beatings a CHS football team has absorbed in many years, the decidedly inexperienced Indians dropped a 41-7 decision to visiting Lakeland High last Friday night. For the Indians, who lost some key personnel to graduation on a 2010 team that finished 9-1, the inexperience was evident against a Lakeland team that was playing its second game of the season. The Hawks opened the season with a loss in Coeur d’ Alene to Lake City.

Chewelah cross-country has fresh faces

September 7, 2011

The Jenkins High School (Chewelah) cross-country team has a bunch of fresh faces on the boys and girls teams this season to compliment returning state qualifier Christina Hall.
Head coach Pat Kostecka is still sorting out who is going to be running for his varsity, but he figures the Cougars are definitely ready for the challenge.
“We’re not a very big school, but we have 26 kids out for cross-country which I’m very happy about, and of those 26, we have 17 freshmen,” said coach Kostecka. “So the leadership aspect of having Christina back is huge.”

Northport ready for competition

September 2, 2011

When you take the challenge of trying to resurrect a high school football program that hadn’t fielded a team since you were a young man, the task is nothing but daunting. After all, football teams aren’t built in a season. Some aren’t built in a century. So it goes at Northport High, where veteran high school football coach Don Fox came out of retirement down the road at Rice and agreed to help rebuild football. Well, Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will a competitive Mustangs’ football team. But progress has been made.
