Chewelah has concluded its softball regular season. The Cougars are preparing for the first round of the Northeast A League District 7 1A playoffs.
Chewelah finished the regular season with an 8-2 loss to Medical Lake, giving the Cougars a fifth place finish with a 5-13 NEA record and a 6-14 record overall.
The Cougars will again face Medical Lake (7-11, 8-12) on the road Tuesday in the loser-out first round.
Kettle Falls High (11-7, 12-7) will host Freeman (4-14, 5-15) in the opening round (loser-out) of the Northeast A League District 7 1A softball tournament Tuesday at Kettle Falls. Game time is 4:30 p.m.
If the Lady Bulldogs, who finished the regular season with a sweep of visiting Freeman last Friday, can avoid the upset, theyâ€™ll move on to NEA champion Lakeside (Nine Mile Falls) on Saturday for the remainder of the tournament proper.
In the other loser-out game on Tuesday, NEA No. 4 Medical Lake (7-11, 8-12) will host NEA No. 5 Chewelah (5-13, 6-14).

Colville High (18-0, 19-1) will stay home this week to host second and third round games in the District 7 2A (Great Northern League) Tournament.
The league champion Indians, who annexed the GNL pennant by a whopping five games over second place Deer Park (13-5, 15-5), will host a Thursday second round game. CHS will oppose the survivor of the loser-out opener on Tuesday that pits GNL No. 4 East Valley (9-9, 10-10) against visiting GNL No. 5 Cheney (8-10, 10-10).
That game on Thursday at Dean Vaagen Park is scheduled for 4 p.m.
