Chewelah splits openers

Colville will be tough again in the Northeast A

December 7, 2011

Colville High shared a Northeast A League wrestling title with Lakeside and Riverside last season. There is no reason to believe that the Indians will have to share anything this time around. Randy Cloke’s Indians get the pre-season nod as the team to beat in the NEA.
The Indians, the defending District 7 1A champions, are particularly strong at the lower weights again this season. There are some holes in the upper weights.
Colville returns five of the seven wrestlers who qualified for the Mat Classic state championships in Tacoma last February.

It could be another interesting winter for Colville High girl’s basketball.

Colville also returns a couple of familiar names and faces that have been actively involved with Colville girl’s basketball for many years.
