Chewelah picks up wins

December 31, 2012

The Chewelah boys’ basketball team remained undefeated in Northeast A League play with wins against Riverside and Lakeside before Christmas
Jenkins High head coach Rocky Verbeck credits strong bench play from Tommy Norman, Cordell Bean, Deylin Peone and Lars Berger for the Cougars ability to grind out wins.
“I think that is going to be our theme this year--we ground out those wins,” said Verbeck. “They don’t score often, but our bench is making the most of their minutes and that is always big for us on the defensive side of things.”

Colville can’t hold on in fourth quarter

December 31, 2012

Indians play without Hubbard

It’s tough to win without your all-league meal ticket.
So it went for Colville High (4-4) in last Thursday night’s non-league boy’s basketball game with visiting Priest River.
The Indians were playing without their 6-9 junior post, Matt Hubbard. The team’s leading scorer and rebounder was in Oklahoma with his family.
Colville played well early and led by as many as nine points in the third quarter before Priest River found their collective shooting eye.

Colville girls win fourth straight

December 31, 2012

Top-ranked Post Falls up next

The Colville High girl’s basketball team (4-3) won its fourth straight game last Thursday night, holding off visiting Priest River (6-5) and posting a 38-35 win.
Colville got off fast in this one. The Indians put together one of their best opening quarters of the season to date in running to an early 18-6 lead.
CHS turned over the Spartans frequently in the early-going with their full court pressure. But PR battled back, outscoring Colville 10-6 in the second quarter before the Indians regained some momentum with an 8-4 third quarter run.

Missy Bennett resigns

December 12, 2012

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.

It’s been awhile since Kettle Falls was 4-1

December 12, 2012

Bulldogs lose
first to Tonasket

A vastly improved Kettle Falls High boy’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 Kettle’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 McKern’s 10 points and blasting visiting Curlew (2-3) 61-33 on Dec. 6.

Coug gals split games

December 12, 2012

Colville up next

The Chewelah Cougars girl’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.

Colville High wrestlers fourth in strong Deer Park Invite field

December 6, 2012

Indians will fill
every weight

Colville High exhibited some early-season strength last Saturday at the always tough Deer Park Invitational wrestling meet.
The Indians, who dominated the Northeast A League the past two seasons before moving up to the Class 2A Great Northern League for the two-year enrollment cycle, served notice last Saturday that they will be a power to contend with in the GNL.
With tournament champion Chandler Knight leading the way with a championship at 182, Colville finished fourth in the tournament field with 137 points.

Cougars should be among Northeast A elite this winter

December 6, 2012

But St. Geo ruins Chewelah’s opener

The Chewelah Cougars boy’s basketball season kicked off the 2012-2013 season last Friday with a game at home against Panorama League power St. George’s.
Unfortunately, shooting trouble from the free throw and three-point lines contributed to the 61-51 loss.
A poor shooting night and foul trouble were the biggest obstacles to overcome for the Cougars, not the 21-point night from St. Geo post Dexter Sienko, according to head coach Rocky Verbeck.

Hubbard leads Colville to a pair of wins

December 6, 2012

NWC, Okanogan up next this week

Colville High (2-0) got the 2012-2013 boy’s basketball season off to a fast start last weekend with a pair of rugged road wins.
On Friday, Colville led much of the way, then withstood a fourth quarter rally to hold off Class 2B Reardan, 47-41. On Saturday at Sandpoint, CHS fell behind early, but behind 6-9 junior post Matt Hubbard, the Indians won, 46-39.
