Timberwolves look to rebound from disappointing 2011

August 29, 2012

Numbers down at Columbia/Inchelium

If Columbia-Inchelium plans to be a factor in the Northeast 1B (eight-man) football race this fall, the Timberwolves are going to have to get it done with fewer players.
Chuck Wyborney, in his 21st season coaching at either Columbia High or for the Columbia-Inchelium combine (third season), has only 15 players out this season (eight from Columbia and seven from Inchelium).
C-I, who finished a disappointing 3-7 last season, should see improvement in that bottom line this fall, low numbers or not.

Bulldogs move into NEA

There are some new challenges facing the Kettle Falls High football program this fall. Primary among them is the fact that the Bulldogs were moved back into the Class 1A Northeast A League after the most recent WIAA enrollment count.
While KFHS will more than likely move back down to the more comfortable (and appropriate) confines of Class 2B in two years, they are going to have to find a way to compete with bigger schools in the NEA in the interim.

Two-time defending Northeast A League champion Colville High will get acquainted with their old neighbors in the Great Northern League this fall and in 2013 after WIAA realignment dumped the Indians back into Class 2A.
Given the inexperience predominantly across the board in the CHS football camp this fall, the NEA would have been a nice fit again, but that’s not the way the enrollment numbers rolled this time around.
