National record
in 1600 set

June 5, 2014

Colville High’s entry into the State 2A tennis tournament last Friday and Saturday at the Nordstrom Center on the University of Washington campus in Seattle was a short-lived affair.

Greene/O’Brien fell to their opposition from West Valley (Yakima), 0-6, 0-6, then were eliminated by a Kingston duo, 3-6, 6-7(5-7).

Tough tourney
for Indians

Colville High is certainly no stranger to the State 1A or 2A softball tournament scene. The Indians have made the state tournament field in 1A or 2A for the past 13 straight seasons. That’s quite a record of achievement.
Seldom have the Indians (21-4) been out of the tournament on the first day. But that’s what happened last Friday when CHS opened with an impressive 7-2 win over Anacortes before losing to W.F. West (Chehalis) and right-hander Mattie Boucher in the quarterfinals late Friday afternoon, 5-1.

Busy schedule
this week

The Jenkins High baseball team has been scuffling to start the season with a 3-7 record. But head coach Luke Jeanneret hopes solid play during a Spring Break trip to Warden will help give his young team confidence entering the second half of the Northeast A League schedule that gets started this week.
“We played a really good team tough for two games and took one from them,” Jeanneret said of the trip to Warden. “I hope we’ve turned a corner; the kids are right there on the edge. I keep encouraging them and hope they realize how good they are.”

After a week off for Spring Break, the Colville High girl’s tennis team faces a light week on the courts before embarking on a heavy schedule next week.

The Indians will be idle until Great Northern League play resumes on Tuesday, April 22 at Deer Park. That match is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. start.

Clarkston
make-up on
Thursday

Colville High continues unbeaten this spring.
The Indians of coach Jim Ebel, coming off a rainout weekend where they were scheduled to play at Clarkston, had three days off before a pivotal game last week at East Valley.
“With that rainout at Clarkston, we had three days off,” Ebel said.
Then last Monday, one day before heading to East Valley for a key Great Northern League softball game, the Indians turned in a clunker of a practice.
“We were horrible,” Ebel said. “It was our worst practice of the year.”
