Big field expected
The summer sports scene wouldnâ€™t be complete without another running of the popular Tiger Triathlon. This yearâ€™s 23rd running of the swim/bike and run Tiger will be held Saturday, July 20. Swimmers will hit the waters of Gillette Lake at 8 a.m. sharp.
Tiger Triathlon Race Director Jake Wilson, who doubles as the city of Colvilleâ€™s Recreation Coordinator, is certainly more comfortable with his Tiger Tri responsibilities after overseeing his first triathlon last July.
Tourney one of
areas most popular
Colvilleâ€™s Dominion Meadows Golf Course will once again host the annual Opie-Coxie Open on Saturday, July 27. This is an event golfers of any ability level should not miss and is one of the most popular one-day tournaments in NorthÂeast Washington.
The tournament serves as a tribute to two great men, John Ochs and Steve Cox.
The format for this event is a scramble with four or five perÂson teams. Entry fee is $45 per player, if paid by July 24, and $50 per player after July 24.
Victim awake as
of last Sunday
A fun weekend at the anÂnual Panorama Pro-West RoÂdeo in Colville nearly turned to tragÂedy last Saturday afterÂnoon when a pick-up man was injured in the Northeast Washington rodeo arena.
Bo Segerman, 21, was purÂsuing a rough stock bucking horse to corral it back into the pen when the horse somehow got behind his own mount and caused it to trip, throwing Segerman and rolling over him in the process.
Segerman, who works for stock contractor, Gold Buckle Rodeo Company, was knocked unconscious.
The 72nd annual Panorama Rodeo made its two-day run at the Northeast Washington Fairgroundsâ€™ rodeo arena last Friday night and Saturday afternoon. The two Pro-West Rodeo shows drew solid crowds, who watched Kelly Bowcuttâ€™s Gold Buckle Rodeo Company stock more than hold its own against circuit cowboys. One of the highlights of the weekend were performances by Colvilleâ€™s own Tough Enough Equestrian Drill Team. Photos courtesy of Chris Cowbrough.

Archers fired arrows and clay pigeons were blasted from the sky during the annual 4-H Shooting Sports Jamboree June 13 at the Republic Gun Club shotgun and rifle ranges. More than 40 youth participated in the round-robin event, developing their marksmanship with shotguns, air rifles and pistols, and bows and arrows.
Three additional stations were added to this yearâ€™s event, featuring safety and hunter education in a â€˜Jeopardyâ€™ game show format, a 4-H hunting lesson, and a Challenge activity to reinforce gun range safety and etiquette.
Eleven teams competed in the annual Wildland Firefighters Scramble Golf Tournament at Dominion Meadows Golf Course earlier this month. This yearâ€™s tournament, which raises funds for the Wildland Firefightersâ€™ Foundation, raised a record $3,800.
One of the tournamentâ€™s organizers, Al Garr, said that a team that had finished last in last summerâ€™s tournament returned and took home top honors with a net 52.
The last place team from this yearâ€™s tournament won a free group lesson from DM PGA pro, Andy Hite.
is the focus
For most people to try their hand at archery and shooting, they would either have to pay for a class or pay a guide for an excursion in the countryÂside that most Tri-County residents take for granted.
heads to Indy
Colville Junior High School and Basement Boysâ€™ wrestling standout TJ Baun will be busy this month with regional and national tournaments.
Baun and his father Tom left Colville on June 4 for the Schoolboy/Girl National Duals in Indianapolis, Indiana. That tournament will run June 5-9 at Warren Central High School in Indianapolis.
Baun, age 14, and an eighth-grader at CJHS, will be competing in his first national duals (Freestyle/Greco) as a member of Team Washington. Heâ€™ll be wrestling in the 98- pound class.
Camp will also
Members of the Gonzaga University womenâ€™s basketball team will be back to help with the annual Panorama Girlâ€™s Basketball Camp later this month.
One of the best basketball camp buys anywhere will make its annual run at Colville High School Monday, June 17 to Friday, June 21.
Northport senior wins three more
Northport Highâ€™s one-woman track and field team, Kassie Guglielmino, capped a brilliant high school career with a trio of titles at last weekendâ€™s State 1A/2B/1B track and field championships at Eastern Washington Universityâ€™s Roos Field.
Guglielminoâ€™s accomplishments are mind-boggling. The diminutive senior, headed to Montana Western University where she will major in Equine Studies, has captured 12 state championships in those three years. Thatâ€™s three a year for the math challenged.
