On Saturday, the Indians managed a split with Newport, losing the opener 7-3 and coming back for a 3-1 win in the second game.

Unbeaten Northport sweeps

April 18, 2012

BY CHRIS COWBROUGH
S-E Sports Editor

Northport High got more solid pitching and timely hitting in a 10-0, 13-3 sweep of Columbia/Inchelium back on April 10.
Josh Konkler and Daulton Burke combined on a one-hitter in the opening game.
The Mustangs took full advantage of walks and hit batters in both games.
“We scattered around 11 hits and used a lot of bases on balls and hit by pitch to have runners on base all day,” NHS head coach Don Baribault said. “We chipped away, but never had that huge inning.

April 18, 2012

Kettle loses tough outing
at Colfax

Kettle Falls High (3-5, 3-6) got a key outing from junior right-hander Tyler Vining when they needed it last Saturday and the Bulldogs were able to salvage a doubleheader split with league-leading Lind-Ritzville/Sprague at home.
After Kettle Falls dropped a 12-1 decision in the opener to the Broncos, the Bulldogs were able to ride Vining’s second sterling outing of the week to a 5-1 win. It was the first win of last week’s four- game set against LRS and perennial 2B power Colfax.

Defending NEA champion Colville still on top

April 18, 2012

But Indians tested against
Chewelah

The unbeaten Colville High School girl’s tennis team faced a rigorous test on Tuesday when Chewelah’s upstart tennis team, an upset winner of Lakeside last week in Northeast A League tennis play, visited the defending NEA champion Indians.
Chewelah dropped a narrow 3-2 decision earlier this season to Colville.
“That might prove to be a bit more interesting than I had expected,” CHS head coach Phil Johnson said after Chewelah downed always tough Lakeside. “There won’t be any room for error against them.”

April 13, 2012

Players sought for
second year league

Bambino Baseball Buddy Ball will embark on its second season in Colville next month.
The league for special needs youngsters got its impetus last spring with seven players. This spring, coordinators Heather and Brandon Judd hope to sign up 15 youngsters for this unique and rewarding program.
The Colville Kiwanis Club-sponsored Little League supports the program and has reserved field space for Bambino Buddy Ball, which is a division of Babe Ruth Baseball.

Chewelah breaks out the bats

April 13, 2012

Chewelah’s baseball team finally got to spend some time on the diamond this past week, playing five games since last Monday. So it goes when the early spring has been uncommonly wet and inclement.
Jenkins High School head coach Luke Jeanneret isn’t too worried about all the games in a short, quick stretch. Jeanneret figures his pitching is deep enough and able to take the wear and tear so many games can put on a staff.

Important week for CHS soccer team

April 11, 2012

Indians face
NEA League foes

Colville High’s rapidly improving soccer team will face a pair of Northeast A League opponents this week in games that will go a long way toward determining the league champion and post-season pecking order.
Sure, it’s still early in the season, but in a minimalist league like the NEA, the Indians and head coach Dave Rarrick will get a pretty good idea by the weekend what the pecking order might be.
