Statesman-Examiner Sports will begin profiling spring sports teams from Colville, Kettle Falls and Chewelah high schools in next weekâ€™s edition.
Among the teams covered will be track and field, baseball and softball at Colville, Chewelah and Kettle Falls, boyâ€™s soccer at Colville, boyâ€™s and girlâ€™s golf at Chewelah and Colville and boys golf at Kettle Falls High, along with girlâ€™s tennis at CHS and Northport baseball.
As expected, last Saturday nightâ€™s showdown for the State girlâ€™s 1B basketball championship came down to a battle of the top rankedâ€”three time defending champion Colton and Columbia High (28-2).
Columbia, putting together another brilliant campaign under head coach Mindy Flett, simply couldnâ€™t overcome the Colton juggernaut, losing 55-47.
With the win, Colton continues to breathe in some rarified air. There are very few teams that win one state championship, much less four in succession.
