Colville could surprise in GNL

November 28, 2012

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 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.

The fourth-ranked Indians, the defending State 1A champions, are District 7’s top seed to the 2A regional tournament on Saturday against the Central Washington Athletic Conference.

NEA champion Chewelah opens playoffs against Okanogan

November 1, 2012

Cougars will host Crossover

The Northeast A League champion Chewelah Cougars (8-1, 6-0) finished an undefeated league season with a 55-7 trouncing of the Riverside Rams (1-8, 1-5) last Friday night at Snyder Field.
The Cougars jumped out to a big early lead and head coach Jim Fisk said that was the blueprint going in to this game.
“We went in and took care of business,” Fisk said. “It was nice to put them away early, get out of there with no injuries and be able to get ready for next week.”

Volleyball officiating is a family affair

November 1, 2012

Mom & two sons officiate tourney

Volleyball officiating is a family affair for the Smith clan of Chewelah.
Denise Smith, a very familiar face around Chewelah and one of that community’s most active and involved residents, has been officiating high school volleyball in northeast Washington for 27 years.
At last Saturday’s District 7 2A Tournament at Colville, Smith was joined by two of her sons—Stryker and Blaze. The Smith trio worked the tournament and was on the floor for the championship match-up between Colville and East Valley.

Colville closes in on GNL v-ball title

October 17, 2012

But Indians face
tough week

It’s Homecoming Week at Colville High School and that means fall sports’ coaches are wondering how their athletes will react to all that pomp, circumstance and distraction.
CHS volleyball coach Missy Bennett, whose Indians are unbeaten in Great Northern League action and haven’t lost a game, much less a match this fall to date, isn’t going on the record to say she has no use for Homecoming. But coaches will worry about focus and not who’s on the Homecoming royalty or who has/hasn’t got a date to the Homecoming dance.
