Indians look sharp in beating Cheney
Colville High (6-6, 2-2) took out a few frustrations on Cheney (3-8, 1-4) last Saturday night at home in a 53-35 Great Northern League girlâ€™s basketball win. The win over the Blackhawks was one of the Indiansâ€™ best all-around outings of the season and helped take away some of the sting of a pair of GNL losses to West Valley and East Valley during the week.
The Jenkins High boysâ€™ basketball team finished the first half of Northeast A League play undefeated and in first place after winning a pair of games last week.
Back on Jan. 8 at Medical Lake, in a showdown for first place in the NEA, Chewelah used a big second half to beat the Cardinals 47-37, then overwhelmed visiting Newport with a stifling defensive effort in a 63-20 win on Friday.
Once again, the Cougars found different ways to get the job done and won with different players making key contributions.
Deer Park escapes
with big dual win
To pull off an upset of second-ranked and five-time defending State 2A wrestling champion Deer Park last Thursday night, fourth-ranked Colville needed to stay off their backs and get a break or two. That didnâ€™t happen.
Colville, who buried Pullman in a dual match-up in the Palouse one night earlier, lost its first six matches, three of them by pin, and trailed 27-0 before Indiansâ€™ 152-pounder Ryley Smith decisioned Deer Parkâ€™s Jason Aebischer, 7-5.
