Indians pick up wins over Chewelah, Freeman
Northeast A League league-leader Colville High picked up a pair of important girlâ€™s tennis wins last week over Freeman and Chewelah.
Colville downed Chewelah 3-2 back on April 17 and swept Freeman 5-0 last Friday.
Colville traveled to Riverside on Monday, while the junior varsity was home against Central Valley.
On Wednesday, the CHS junior varsity will be at Chewelah against the host Cougars and Lakeside.
On Friday and Saturday, the CHS varsity will be at the Inland Empire Tournament in Spokane.
tap this week
In a battle for first place in the Northeast A League fast-pitch softball race, Lakeside blinked first back on April 17 at Vaagen Park.
Defending NEA champion Colville scored early and often in posting a 10-3 win over Lakeside (7-1, 8-1).
The Indians (9-0, 11-2) dominated this one, collecting 13 hits and hitting a pair of home runs.
Colville made it a 3-0 week with a 4-1, 12-0 sweep of visiting Newport (1-6, 3-6) on Friday.
Vining continues his solid pitching
It has been a process and a project this spring for a mostly inexperienced Kettle Falls baseball team long on youth and generally short of pitching.
The Bulldogs (5-5, 6-7) picked up a Northeast 2B (Bi-County League) doubleheader win over Springdale last Tuesday and split a non-league doubleheader with host Priest River of the Idaho Panhandleâ€™s Intermountain League on Thursday.
Chewelah, league-leading Lakeside next
One bad half inningâ€”thatâ€™s all that stood in the way of Colville sweeping four Northeast A League baseball games last week instead of going 3-1.
With the NEA schedule heading down the homestretch and its final week, the Indians (7-5) will face league-leading Lakeside (7-3) and second place Chewelah (6-4) this week.
CHS traveled to Chewelah on Tuesday for a single game and will head to Nine Mile Falls on Friday for a pivotal doubleheader with Lakeside (2 p.m. start).
