John Monette sells Johnâ€™s Marine Service
John Monette admits that running a boat business all these years is something of a departure for an old farm kid.
Monette, on the cusp of his 76th birthday, recently sold his long-running Johnâ€™s Marine Service to Ray Clark and Clarkâ€™s All-Sports earlier this year.
It was a good move for both Colville businessmen. Clark, who has renamed the business Clarkâ€™s Marine & Motor Sports, plans to expand on the companyâ€™s marine division and Monette says itâ€™s time to retire.
CHS boys, girls
finish in top 10
The Colville High boyâ€™s and girlâ€™s track and field teams put a cap on a very successful season last Friday and Saturday at the State 1A track and field championships at Eastern Washington Universityâ€™s Woodward Stadium.
Highlight of the meet for the Indians was the state championship turned in by the 4x100 relay team (Mackayla McLaughlin, Malia Luu, Chelsea Phillips and Tasha Luu).
Earl second in discus
Jenkins High School sent seniors Zack Schnieder and Makayla Earl to the State 1B/2B/1A track and field championships at Eastern Washington University last Friday and Saturday.
For Schnieder and Earl, it was a weekend to remember.
Schnieder set three JHS hurdlesâ€™ records, and earned a third place medal in the 300- meter hurdles before capturing a coveted state championship in the 110 meter hurdles.
On Friday, Schnieder won both preliminary races--in the 110 hurdles with a time of 14.94 and in the 300 with a time of 39.49.
Connell rallies in the ninth to win
Colville came agonizingly close to capturing the schoolâ€™s first state fast-pitch softball championship last Saturday afternoon at Columbia Playfield in Richland.
But like last spring, when Connell edged the Indians in the State 1A semifinals in Spokane, the Eagles broke a few more Colville hearts with a heart-stopping 4-3 championship game win in nine innings.
Closeâ€¦oh, so close.
CHS doubles team was 5th last year
The Colville High doubles duo of Liselotte Doggen and Erin Little captured the region 1B/2B/1A championship last weekend at West Valley High School and will advance to the State 1B/2B/1A Tennis Championships Friday and Saturday at the Yakima Tennis Club.
Doggen and Little finished fifth in doubles at last yearâ€™s tournament in Yakima.
Bulldogs donâ€™t have it against Indians
Kettle Falls High (12-10) simply had nothing in the tank in an 11-0 loss to Reardan last Tuesday in a District 7 2B tournament game at Medical Lake.
The loss ended Kettleâ€™s season.
Reardan advanced to the regional tournament at Gonzaga Prep last Saturday. The Indians were eliminated 4-3 by Riverside Christian.
Asotin advanced out of the Spokane regional to the Class 2B Final Four in Ellensburg Friday and Saturday.
State 1A softball against Hoquiam
Colville High (20-3), after dominating Lakeside all season long, fell to their Northeast A League nemesis 7-5 last Saturday afternoon in the District 6-7 regional title game at Vaagen Park in Colville.
The Indians and Eagles both advance to the State 1A Tournament Friday and Saturday at the Columbia Playfields in Richland. Okanogan and Cascade also advanced to State from the typically weak Caribou-Trail League.
Colville will open the double elimination tournament on Friday at noon against Hoquiam.
Indians dominate District 7 1A at WSU
Colville High continued its successful run through the Northeast A League again last weekend at Washington State University, annexing singles and doubles championships at the District 7 1A Tournament.
The two-time NEA champion and District champion Indians advance District 7 1A singles champion Tessa Moore, two-time District doubles championsâ€™ Liselotte Doggen and Erin Little, and the doubles team of senior Carly Ekins and junior Alyssa Kienbaum (fourth seeded to regionals).
Cougars drop games to Colville, Lakeside
The Chewelah High Cougarsâ€™ baseball season came to an end last weekend with losses to Colville and Lakeside in the Northeast A League/Caribou Trail League District playoffs in Wenatchee.
The Cougars had won four in a row before Saturdayâ€™s games, including wins over Colville and Lakeside to annex the District 7 championship. But the Cougars couldnâ€™t find the formula to advance to the regional playoffs on May 19.
Colville will oppose LaSalle on Saturday
The Colville High baseball team (13-9) won two of three games last week to qualify for the 1A regional tournament Saturday at Larson Field in Moses Lake.
The Indians, who edged Cascade 7-6 last Tuesday in Moses Lake to keep their season alive and advance to the Bi-District Tournament in Wenatchee last Saturday against the Caribou-Trail League, will oppose LaSalle on Saturday in a loser-out game at Moses Lake (1 p.m.).
