Big match with Lakeside
on Saturday at CHS
Colville Highâ€™s defending Northeast A League and District 7 tennis champions, currently leading the NEA race this soggy spring, are back in action this week after being idle over Spring Break.
CHS hosted Deer Park on Tuesday and will entertain Lakeside Saturday in a match-up that will go a long way toward determining this seasonâ€™s NEA champion. Lakeside and the Indians battled for the league and district championships last spring.
Saturdayâ€™s match on the CHS courts is scheduled for an 11 a.m. start.
Gerry Cox in
NW Extreme Makeover
Gerry Cox, owner of Mountain House Stables (Arden), has thrown his hat in the ring at NW Extreme Mustang Makeover again. His last attempt netted a third place showing in 2010.
The NW Extreme Mustang Makeover is sponsored by the Mustang Heritage Foundation of Georgetown, Texas, in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management, where the MHF has selected 45 trainers from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, California and Nevada to pick up randomly selected wild horses from the BLM gathering centers in Oregon, California and Nevada.

Mustangs get in
games at Kettle
Northport High moved its early-season baseball record to 4-0 last week with a 5-0, 13-4 sweep of host Republic.
The games were played at the junior varsity field at Kettle Falls. The fields at Northport and Republic were still unplayable last week.
The Mustangs won the rain-shortened first game 5-0 behind right-hander Jeremiah Johnson. The junior scattered two hits and struck out seven.
Johnson didnâ€™t throw a ball until there were two outs in the second inning.
Kettle Falls High dropped a Northeast 2B League doubleheader at Northwest Christian back on March 27 by scores of 5-0, 9-2.
The Bulldogs had trouble mounting any kind of an offensive attack against NWC. KFHS managed only five hits in the 14 innings of baseball played at Colbert.
