The Cougars will again face Medical Lake (7-11, 8-12) on the road Tuesday in the loser-out first round.

Colville had beaten Great Northern League rival West Valley twice during the regular season, but the fifth-seeded Eagles eliminated fourth-seeded Colville 3-0 last Thursday afternoon on the Colville pitch in the opening round of the District 7 2A playoffs.
The Eagles lost at league champion and unbeaten Cheney 3-0 in the District semifinal on Saturday.
Ian Schimandel scored two second half goals for Cheney.

Colville will host on Thursday
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.
The weekend of April 20th was a huge success for the Colville FFA Trap team.
Colville FFA Trap earned number one champion status out of 20 schools shooting 276 out of 300 targets. n Mikalin Thompson took First place female in the state with 91 out of 100 targets. Kashmir Howes shot third in state with 89 out of 100 targets. Aiden Huggins earned third place overall male and Jonas Mebes shot well, earning fifth overall male.
Kettle Falls High (8-6, 9-6), currently in third place in the Northeast A League girlâ€™s softball race behind Lakeside (11-1) and second place Riverside (11-2), started the week with three straight wins before losing a doubleheader last Saturday at Riverside.
The Lady Bulldogs started a busy week back on April 16 with a tough 5-2 win over visiting Chewelah. Two days later, KFHS edged visiting Medical Lake 4-3, and 2-1 before ending the week with 9-0, 8-6 losses at Riverside.
key for Indians
Despite playing short-handed for much of the spring, and being without some key players in two key GNL match-ups last week, Colville High (7-4, 9-6) has turned in an impressive season to date in the 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians, who face a key Tuesday date at Pullman (6-4, 8-6) before the District 7 2A playoffs start next week, are currently a point out of third place in the GNL standings. Cheney has annexed the regular season GNL title with a perfect 10-0 record (11-2 overall). East Valley (8-3, 9-3) is in second place.
week on tap
Losses have been very infrequent for the Colville High girlâ€™s tennis team in recent seasons. But in a busy, and otherwise eminently successful week, the Indians dropped their first Great Northern League match of the season on April 18 in a three-way duel played at East Valley High School.
At EV, the Indians fell 4-3 to GNL power Clarkston and edged host East Valley, 4-3.
Colville High won its 13th straight game on a cold afternoon for softball at Vaagen Park back on April 16. The Indians broke open a scoreless game in the bottom of the third inning en route to a 9-3 Great Northern League softball win over third place Deer Park.
CHS (13-1, 12-0) was scheduled to make the long trip to Clarkston on Friday for a single game against the Bantams, but that contest was rescheduled for Monday.
Time to regroup
after Spring Break
It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Chewelah Cougars baseball team, starting with a 10-0 blanking of Newport and followed by a doubleheader sweep of Riverside.
The Spring Break finished on a down note when the Cougs were swept on the road in two games by Medical Lake.
The Cougars look to re-establish their momentum and focus this week on moving up in the Northeast A League baseball standings.
