Indians win brawl— make ‘Sweet 16’ field

February 22, 2012

Colville boys eliminate Freeman at Chelan

In a game more reminiscent of a backyard brawl or a rough around the edges Australian Rules Football scrum on roller derby skates, Colville High’s boys led wire to wire to register a 54-47 Bi-District winner-to-regionals/loser-out win Saturday afternoon over Freeman at Chelan Community Gymnasium.
The win for Colville (15-11) was the first this season in four tries over Northeast A League and District 7 1A champion Freeman (15-9).

As a team, Chewelah fin­ished sixth in the 12 team tour­nament and after their ifth place showing in the six-team Northeast A League District tournament, coach Patrick Mitchell was very pleased.
“It was the best tournament we wrestled as a team all year,” Mitchell said.

February 16, 2012

KFHS junior
finishes fourth

Kettle Falls High standout Tyler Vining will represent the Bulldogs at Friday and Saturday’s Mat Classic XXIV in the Tacoma Dome.
The KFHS junior will open his tournament on Friday afternoon at approximately 1 p.m. in a first round match-up with Michael Siperly of Adna. A win would draw a quarterfinal match-up Friday evening at about 7:30 p.m. against the winner of the Darrin Springs (Darrington) vs. Austin Reisdorph (Pomeroy) opener.
Vining led the KFHS contingent at the 1B/2B regional at Kittitas High School last weekend with a fourth place finish.

Northport faces loser-out game with Cusick

February 16, 2012

Valley Christian sends NHS to loser-bracket

Northport High (18-4) will face Cusick (10-12) in a District 7 1B boy’s loser-out game Wednesday at Deer Park High School. Game time is 5 p.m.
The Mustangs, who dropped a 59-37 decision to third-ranked Valley Christian (19-2) last Saturday night at Deer Park High School, will play Cusick for the fourth time this season.
Northport is 3-0 against the Panthers to date, but if the first three encounters with their Panorama League rivals haven’t necessarily been buzzer-beaters, they’ve been close.

February 16, 2012

Colville heads
to Chelan

Colville High built a big early lead and cruised to a 44-26 win over Newport to annex the District 7 1A girl’s basketball championship last Friday night at Mead High School.
Behind Ashley Knight’s 28 points and 12 rebounds, the Indians (16-6) advanced to the title game with a 51-36 win last Wednesday over Lakeside in the opening round of District play.
CHS advances as District 7’s top seed to this week’s Bi-District 6-7 Tournament at Chelan High School and the Chelan Community Center.
