Colville boys, girls get past Lakeside

January 25, 2012

In high school basketball action Tuesday night in the Northeast A League, the Colville High girls remained one game behind unbeaten Freeman after recording a 45-42 road win at Lakeside (10-8, 5-3).
The teams battled on mostly even terms until Colville regained the lead for good in the game’s final four-minutes. Senior post Ashley Knight made two free throws with 10 seconds left to give the Indians their final lead. A desperation three-point attempt by Lakeside was off the mark and Colville (13-5, 7-1) had escaped.

Big week for CHS wrestlers

January 25, 2012

League dual title on the line

There is nothing like saving the best for last.
Colville High faces its biggest test(s) of the Northeast A League dual season this week when they travel to Lakeside and Riverside for match-ups with the Eagles and Rams.
Colville, who shared the NEA dual meet championship with Lakeside and Riverside last season, would like nothing better than to win the title outright this time around.
Colville travels to Nine Mile Falls and Lakeside High on Thursday (6 p.m. start). The Indians will turn around and head to Riverside on Friday (6 p.m.).

Indians control own fate in wild NEA boy’s race

Colville High boys face difficult week

The Colville High boy’s basketball team, coming off big wins over Newport and Riverside, face their final—and most important—week of Northeast A League play this week.
On Tuesday, the Indians (5-2, 10-7), in a three-way tie for first place, were at one of the toughest gyms in the NEA (Lakeside). Colville, with a home win over the Eagles earlier this month, will likely be the underdog this time around against LHS (3-4, 8-9).
So it goes in the wild NEA, where protecting the home court is paramount and stealing a road win here and there the goal.

Lakeside, Freeman up next for Colville girls

January 25, 2012

Indians one game back of Freeman

Providing they can escape a difficult environment at Nine Mile Falls and Lakeside (5-2, 10-7) on Tuesday night, the Colville High girls (6-1, 12-5) will face two-time defending State 1A champion Freeman (7-0, 17-0) Friday at home for a share of the Northeast A League championship.
In picking up wins last week over Newport, Riverside and Post Falls, the Indians played some of their best basketball of the season to date.

Not bad for a building year

January 25, 2012

Northport High boy’s basketball coach Erik Stark will tell you that his team isn’t as good as its gaudy 15-2 record.
“We aren’t that good,” says Stark, who figured that this would be a building year after losing some key players off the Mustangs’ State 1B team of last winter. “At least we aren’t as good as our record. But we are starting to do some things that good teams do.”
Like win…

Sophomore post Matt Hubbard led the Indians (8-8, 3-2) with 24 points and 19 rebounds (two off the school record). Senior post Alex Pond added 12 points and 16 rebounds.

Cougars face Riverside, Colville this week
