CHS ‘Midnight Mile’ draws good turnout

August 27, 2013

Cross country
season underway

Let the wind blow and the thunder roll. Sunday evening’s squall through the Colville Valley managed to knock out power and do a fair amount of property damage, but wasn’t able to dampen the Colville High School cross country team’s 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 Indians’ annual midnight appointment with their new season.

CHS football gets a jump

August 27, 2013

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 Cornwell’s Indians have been working the “daily double” 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.

The Basement Boys call it quits

August 6, 2013

Wrestling club will disband
at the end of August

The Basement Boys program started in 1985 with coaches Denny Reddinger and Monty Jones. The program was called the Hermiston Offroad Stingers.
The club wrestled all three styles and traveled throughout Washington and Oregon. In 1990, the club became the Basement Boys when Monty and Shelley Jones started traveling with their son, Dustin, Sean Riley and many others.
This was the driving force to keep the club alive at the time.
