Colville cross-country team gears for post-season

October 19, 2011

It was a short drive down Highway 395 to the manicured fairways of the Chewelah Golf & Country Club last Tuesday for Colville High’s cross-country team. It took even less time than the drive for the local harriers to dispatch the over-matched Cougars. Under mostly sunny skies, the late afternoon confrontation between the Cougars and Indians provided little suspense, but was long on entertainment as both teams struggled to navigate the sparsely marked, tree-lined course.

Big second half propels Wellpinit over Northport

October 19, 2011

After getting close to high-powered Wellpinit (3-0, 6-1) back in early September, Northport High faithful had every reason to believe that the second time around would be different and the Mustangs might pull off a monumental upset. Well, things were different. NHS (3-1, 4-3) had few answers for the Wellpinit running-back A.J. Kieffer and the high-octane Redskins’ offense. The result was a lopsided 58-18 loss to fourth-ranked Wellpinit in a key Northeast 1B North eight-man game at Northport last Friday night.

Timberwolves let one slip away

October 12, 2011

Woulda-coulda-shoulda.
So it has gone this season for the Columbia-Inchelium football team.
The Timberwolves (1-2, 2-4) couldn’t take advantage of a once powerhouse Cusick team (3-1, 4-2) that because of graduation and some injuries to key players this season, is a shell of its former self. Cusick did just enough offensively to pull out a 36-28 win at Hunters last Friday afternoon in a key Northeast 1B North game.
“We had our opportunities,” conceded C-I coach Chuck Wyborney. “The table was set for us to knock them off. But we made too many mistakes.”

Putting the “try” in Triathlon: Run, hamster, run!

October 5, 2011

I hate treadmills. Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. Perhaps hate is too strong an utterance for a machine that is basically the bastard offspring of a conveyor belt and hamster wheel, so let me rephrase that. If treadmills were the symbolic piñata of all my prejudices and distaste for physical fitness, I would hang it from a tree branch and beat the ever-loving stuffing out of it.

Chewelah hopes to get back on winning track

October 5, 2011

The Chewelah Cougars volleyball team is entering a tough stretch of games and looking to find consistency in the midst of a five-match losing streak. Last week, the Cougars dropped three hard-fought matches against Newport, Kettle Falls and Riverside, while struggling on offense, defense and serving at various times in the past week.
“We matched up well, but we broke down defensively quite a bit,” coach Wendy Stenbeck said. “The other teams didn’t...they out hustled us.”

League-leading Freeman too much for Chewelah

October 5, 2011

The Chewelah Cougars (1-4, 0-2) faced off against the Freeman Scotties (5-0, 2-0) on Friday night in Chewelah in a key Northeast A League football game. The Cougars held their own for most of the first half, but two late touchdowns by league-leading Freeman in the first half opened up the game and the Scotties never looked back, cruising to a 41-12 victory on Senior Night for Chewelah.
For the second straight week, the big play was the nemesis of the Cougar defense--a touchdown pass of 56 yards and two other touchdowns set up by plays of 40-plus yards in the first half.

The roll continues for Colville volleyball

Colville will travel to Chewelah next Tuesday (6:30 p.m. start). Colville is the favorite to win a second straight NEA championship this fall.

Bulldogs win in overtime

September 28, 2011

Despite managing only 98 yards of total offense, Kettle Falls High found a way to pull out a come-from-behind 13-12 Northeast 2B football win over visiting Davenport last Friday night.
In front of a big Homecoming crowd, the Bulldogs (2-2, 1-1) spotted the Gorillas (1-3, 0-2) an overtime touchdown before getting a two-yard run from Austin Anderson and the game-winning Kyle Dodson PAT kick.
