February 8, 2013

Cougs the favorite for District title

The Chewelah Cougars (17-3, 12-0) finished their regular season on a roll, going undefeated in Northeast A League play and now riding a 15-game winning streak into the NEA and Bi-District tournaments.
The NEA tournament got underway on Monday with boy’s games. Medical Lake traveled to Chewelah for a seeding game into the Bi-District Tournament. The top two finishers during the NEA regular season automatically advance to the Bi-District Tournament.
In NEA loser-out games, Newport was at Lakeside and Riverside visited Freeman.

A chance meeting with Mixed Martial Arts

February 8, 2013

How a controversial sport changed a life

It’s a quiet morning in the Underground Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Academy in Kettle Falls, except for the steady, slightly labored breathing of two participants just wrapping up the Senior Boomers Boxing session. After their workout, the husband and wife team visit with the acad­emy’s trainer and owner, David “The Viking” Anderson, who sits at his desk.

Chewelah streak hits 13

January 31, 2013

District playoffs start next week

The Jenkins High boys’ basketball team (15-3, 10-0) extended its winning streak to 13 games last week with a 73-33 win at home over Northport and a 64-34 win over struggling Freeman.
Head coach Rocky Verbeck credits the work the Cougars put in on defense and the players finding their roles on offense with a run that has carried the Cougars close to a Northeast A League championship as the league enters its final week before the District 7 1A playoffs get started next Monday.

Important week for Colville girls

January 31, 2013

Indians on the road at West Valley, Cheney & Pullman

Colville High (5-3, 9-7) faces its most difficult—and most important—stretch of the season this week.

CHS is at West Valley on Tuesday before heading to Cheney (3-6, 6-10) on Thursday. Game time is 5:45 p.m.
Colville will make the long trek to the Palouse and a visit to Pullman on Saturday. Game time is 4:15 p.m.

District tournament next for CHS wrestlers

January 31, 2013

Indians share GNL dual championship

It’s post-season time for high school wrestlers in Washington state. Fourth-ranked Colville High, who moved up to the class 2A Great Northern League from the Northeast A in the fall, made their return foray into the GNL a successful one with a league dual co-championship (with East Valley).
The Indians’, who would be the odds-on favorite to win a 1A championship if they were still members of the NEA, suffered a lone dual loss this winter to five-time defending State 2A champion Deer Park.

January 22, 2013

Top-ranked Freeman, Selkirk
this week

Kettle Falls High (6-10, 2-7) picked up a pair of Northeast A League wins last week and finished 2-1 during a busy stretch of action.
The Lady Bulldogs eased past host Chewelah 49-39 back on Jan. 15 and downed host Medical Lake 38-35 on Friday night before absorbing a 50-36 loss back at Kettle Falls Middle School on Saturday afternoon to Newport (11-6, 6-3).
THIS WEEK
Kettle Falls has the unenviable task of hosting perennial NEA champion and State 1A title contender Freeman (16-0, 8-0) on Tuesday. Game time is 5:45 p.m.

Another busy week for Colville

January 22, 2013

Indians split with DP, Pullman

An issue that has plagued the Colville High girl’s basketball team all season long came into play last Saturday evening against visiting Pullman. The Indians (7-7, 3-3) turned in subpar second and third quarters offensively and that was just enough of a cushion for the Greyhounds (10-5, 6-1), who had to withstand a fourth quarter CHS rally to post a 48-43 win.
Back on Jan. 15, Colville blasted host Deer Park (0-15, 0-7) 62-16.

Indians look sharp in beating Cheney

Colville High (6-6, 2-2) took out a few frustrations on Cheney (3-8, 1-4) last Saturday night at home in a 53-35 Great Northern League girl’s basketball win. The win over the Blackhawks was one of the Indians’ best all-around outings of the season and helped take away some of the sting of a pair of GNL losses to West Valley and East Valley during the week.
