Let the wind blow and the thunder roll. Sunday eveningâs squall through the Colville Valley managed to knock out power and do a fair amount of property damage, but wasnât able to dampen the Colville High School cross country teamâs appointed 2013 season kick-off.
While much of the Valley languished in the dark after a strong thunderstorm knocked out large portions of the local power grid, a swift response by local AVISTA crews had the metered gold restored to CHS well before the Indiansâ annual midnight appointment with their new season.
Area high school football teams started practice sessions one week earlier than their volleyball, cross country and soccer brethren. Practice sessions for area high school football teams started August 19. Colville High head coach Randy Cornwellâs Indians have been working the âdaily doubleâ routine every other day. Colville (3-7, 1-5 in 2012) will open the 2013 season on Friday, Sept. 6 at home against Freeman of the Northeast A League. In accompanying photos, Cornwell works with some of his linemen during a recent practice session.
