up to Class 2A

Replicating last seasonâ€™s 15-12 record and a Sweet 16 finish in Class 1A will be tough for the Colville High boyâ€™s basketball team. For one thing, the Indians are playing up and are back in the 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians can only dream about being back where they belongâ€”in 1Aâ€¦at least for the next two seasons.
CHS also lost two-thirds of a rugged front line when seniors Alex Pond (6-5) and J.R. Henry (6-6) graduated. That kind of size and athleticism will be tough to replace.
No seniors on
Never count out a Colville High girlâ€™s basketball team.
The Indians, who graduated three All-Northeast A performers last season and move up to the 2A Great Northern League this winter for the two-year WIAA enrollment cycle, should still be formidable.
After all, while there are no seniors on this yearâ€™s roster, the 2012-2013 CHS varsity is a group that head coach Ray Clark and his daughter, assistant coach Kajsa Brons, have worked with since they were fourth graders.
Speed in spades
Yes, there is youthâ€”and there is basketball experience.
