Colville Highâs Chandler Knight (182) finished third at Friday and Saturdayâs XXV Mat Classic at the Tacoma Dome to help lead the Indians to a ninth place finish (52.5 points).
Teammate Trenton Welton finished fifth at 138 pounds and Colvilleâs 152-pound standout, Tanner Smith, capped a stellar high school career with a sixth place finish.
The Indiansâ Grady Nelson (132), Ian Cox (138) and Ryley Smith (152) did not place.
The Colville High girlâs basketball season came to an abrupt and disappointing end back on Feb. 12 when visiting Cheney escaped with a 35-33 win in District 7 2A loser-out action.
CHS junior Sadie Learn led the Indians with 11 points.
This one was close throughout. A 13-9 fourth quarter run for the Blackhawks was just enough. CHS (10-11) had its chances down the stretch, but some late misfires from the field and the free throw line (six of 15) didnât help.
The Chewelah Cougars boysâ basketball season came to an end Saturday with a 73-47 loss to Cashmere High School in the third place/loser-out game of the 1A Bi-District tournament in Omak.
The Cougars were in the third place game by virtue of pulling out an incredible 53-50, come-from-behind win over Northeast A League rival Lakeside on Friday night.
The Cougars finished with a 19-6 overall record and won the NEA title with an unblemished 12-0 record.
