It has been decades since Colville High alumni (and a few friends) strapped on the helmets and laced on the pads for a little high school football dĂ©jĂ vu. But with the encouragement of CHS grad Cole Weatherman and support from the Colville School District administration, a Colville vs. Chewelah alumni football game was resurrectedâ€”and playedâ€”last Friday night at CHS. No, it almost didnâ€™t happen. There was a point last week when Weatherman thought the game was going to have to be cancelled.
Colville High School graduate and former Indiansâ€™ softball standout Jennica Ebel recently completed her softball career at Spokane Falls Community College.
Ebel, the daughter of Jim and Nancy Ebel of Colville, helped lead SFCC to a fifth place finish in the 16-team NWAACC Tournament and fourth during the regular season.
According to Jim Ebel, an assistant coach for the CHS softball team, the Sasquatch had to overcome a â€śvariety of obstacles this season,â€ť starting with the unexpected transfer of their top pitcher.
It only got worse.
