Cougars should be among Northeast A elite this winter

But St. Geo ruins Chewelah’s opener

The Chewelah Cougars boy’s basketball season kicked off the 2012-2013 season last Friday with a game at home against Panorama League power St. George’s.
Unfortunately, shooting trouble from the free throw and three-point lines contributed to the 61-51 loss.
A poor shooting night and foul trouble were the biggest obstacles to overcome for the Cougars, not the 21-point night from St. Geo post Dexter Sienko, according to head coach Rocky Verbeck.

Hubbard leads Colville to a pair of wins

December 6, 2012

NWC, Okanogan up next this week

Colville High (2-0) got the 2012-2013 boy’s basketball season off to a fast start last weekend with a pair of rugged road wins.
On Friday, Colville led much of the way, then withstood a fourth quarter rally to hold off Class 2B Reardan, 47-41. On Saturday at Sandpoint, CHS fell behind early, but behind 6-9 junior post Matt Hubbard, the Indians won, 46-39.

New challenges for CHS

November 28, 2012

Indians move
up to Class 2A

Replicating last season’s 15-12 record and a Sweet 16 finish in Class 1A will be tough for the Colville High boy’s basketball team. For one thing, the Indians are playing up and are back in the 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians can only dream about being back where they belong—in 1A…at least for the next two seasons.
CHS also lost two-thirds of a rugged front line when seniors Alex Pond (6-5) and J.R. Henry (6-6) graduated. That kind of size and athleticism will be tough to replace.

Colville could surprise in GNL

No seniors on
2012-2013 team

Never count out a Colville High girl’s basketball team.
The Indians, who graduated three All-Northeast A performers last season and move up to the 2A Great Northern League this winter for the two-year WIAA enrollment cycle, should still be formidable.
After all, while there are no seniors on this year’s roster, the 2012-2013 CHS varsity is a group that head coach Ray Clark and his daughter, assistant coach Kajsa Brons, have worked with since they were fourth graders.

Speed in spades

Yes, there is youth—and there is basketball experience.

Chewelah gets by Okanogan

November 9, 2012

Cougars will host River View

The 2012 season continues for the Chewelah Cougars (9-1, 6-0) after a thrilling 26-20 win over the Okanogan Bulldogs last Friday night at Snyder Field.
The Cougars broke out to an early lead, but defensive adjustments by Okanogan kept Chewelah from breaking many big plays. The Bulldogs allowed only one touchdown after a big Chewelah first quarter. Chewelah’s defense played tough and the offense was able to hold the ball and run the clock for much of the game.

Omak ends Kettle Falls’ season

November 9, 2012

Frustrating season for Kettle Falls

Kettle Falls (0-9) saw a disappointing high school football season come to an end last Friday afternoon when Omak of the Caribou-Trail League downed the host Bulldogs, 32-15.
As has been the case this fall with Kettle’s return to the Northeast A League, KFHS was solid on both sides of the ball at times, but not nearly solid enough or consistent enough.
“There were moments against Omak when we did some great things and other moments when we couldn’t do anything,” KFHS head coach Curtis Corvino said. “It was kind of a microcosm of the season.”

Northport holds off Entiat

November 9, 2012

Mustangs finish 4-6 in 2012

Northport High (4-6, 1-5) got behind the eight-ball early at Entiat last Friday in a season-ending Northeast 1B (eight-man) crossover game, but the Mustangs picked up the pace in the final three quarters, overcoming a two-touchdown deficit to register a season-ending 30-28 win.
Northport High head coach Don Fox was proud of his kids for persevering and overcoming a big early deficit.
