State coaching Hall of Famer
will be hard to replace
One of the most successful coaches in the history of Colville High School athletics has tendered her resignation.
Missy Bennett, who led Colville High to the 2011 State 1A volleyball championship and to a fourth place finish at the 2012 State 2A Tournament at Pierce College in Lakewood, announced earlier this week that she is resigning a post she has held for 27 seasons.
first to Tonasket
A vastly improved Kettle Falls High boyâ€™s basketball team suffered its first loss of the season last Saturday when visiting Tonasket of the Caribou-Trail League rolled to an early lead en route to a 62-47 win.
The loss was Kettleâ€™s first in five games.
The Bulldogs (4-1) won two of three non-league games during the week, downing Springdale 46-35 back on Dec. 4 behind Connor McKernâ€™s 10 points and blasting visiting Curlew (2-3) 61-33 on Dec. 6.
Colville up next
The Chewelah Cougars girlâ€™s basketball team split their games this week. Jenkins High looked good in a game against a somewhat depleted Deer Park program, while being pushed around some by a bigger, taller Northwest Christian team.
Overall, however, Chewelah head coach Tom Skok is pleased with his team so far and is looking forward to the rest of the season.
