But Indians are
still tied for 2nd
It wasnâ€™t a pretty week for the Colville High School baseball team.
The Indians (4-4, 5-5), despite playing at home the entire week, managed only one win in four games. Colville started the week back on April 10 with a 14-4 loss to Northeast A League-leading Lakeside (7-2) and followed that up one day later with an 8-0 loss to Freeman (2-4).
On Saturday, the Indians managed a split with Newport, losing the opener 7-3 and coming back for a 3-1 win in the second game.
Colville High had no trouble improving its spring fast-pitch softball record to 6-0, 8-2 last week with Northeast A League wins over Freeman, Riverside and Chewelah.
The Indians, winners of five straight and seven of their last nine, started the week back on April 10 with an easy 16-0 drubbing of visiting Freeman at Dean Vaagen Park.
On Wednesday, Colville swept host Riverside 11-0, 12-0. On Saturday, back home at Dean Vaagen Park, CHS rolled to easy 15-1, 11-0 wins over Chewelah.

Northport High got more solid pitching and timely hitting in a 10-0, 13-3 sweep of Columbia/Inchelium back on April 10.
Josh Konkler and Daulton Burke combined on a one-hitter in the opening game.
The Mustangs took full advantage of walks and hit batters in both games.
â€śWe scattered around 11 hits and used a lot of bases on balls and hit by pitch to have runners on base all day,â€ť NHS head coach Don Baribault said. â€śWe chipped away, but never had that huge inning.
Kettle loses tough outing
Kettle Falls High (3-5, 3-6) got a key outing from junior right-hander Tyler Vining when they needed it last Saturday and the Bulldogs were able to salvage a doubleheader split with league-leading Lind-Ritzville/Sprague at home.
After Kettle Falls dropped a 12-1 decision in the opener to the Broncos, the Bulldogs were able to ride Viningâ€™s second sterling outing of the week to a 5-1 win. It was the first win of last weekâ€™s four- game set against LRS and perennial 2B power Colfax.
But Indians tested against
The unbeaten Colville High School girlâ€™s tennis team faced a rigorous test on Tuesday when Chewelahâ€™s upstart tennis team, an upset winner of Lakeside last week in Northeast A League tennis play, visited the defending NEA champion Indians.
Chewelah dropped a narrow 3-2 decision earlier this season to Colville.
â€śThat might prove to be a bit more interesting than I had expected,â€ť CHS head coach Phil Johnson said after Chewelah downed always tough Lakeside. â€śThere wonâ€™t be any room for error against them.â€ť
