Indians down Lakeside,
Colville High shared the Northeast A League dual meet championship last winter with Lakeside and Riverside. This time around, there is no sharingâ€”the Indians have annexed the NEA championship over Lakeside and Riverside outright.
The Colville Road Warriors, who have seldom been home this winter on what seems like an extended road trip, annexed a league championship last week with a 48-31 win at Lakeside. The Indians, who went through the NEA unscathed this winter, followed that up one night later with a 39-29 dual match win at Riverside.
