The Jenkins High wrestling program began its 2014 season with a new head coach (but a familiar face) and the same mission of moving as many wrestlers through district and onto state in Tacoma.

Colville comes up inches short of 1A grid title bid

December 9, 2014

State 1A’s two
best slug it out

Cascade Christian’s defense came up with its biggest stop in school history early last Saturday afternoon to preserve a dramatic and pretty much heart-stopping 27-26 overtime win over Colville High (12-1) in the Class 1A championship game.
For the Indians, who came in ranked second or third in state polls most of the season, it was a gut-wrenching end to an historic season that saw the country boys from the ‘Ville reach the state semifinals for the first time and vault into the championship game at the venerable Tacoma Dome.

Colville to State!

December 1, 2014

This one had “Upset Special” written all over it. But Colville’s formidable defense turned in its biggest stop in a long, but memorable season and the Indians (12-0) moved into the State 1A championship game with a 20-14 semifinal win over upstart Cascade of Leavenworth last Saturday afternoon in frigid Albi Stadium (Spokane). Colville, ranked no. 1 or no. 2 depending on whether it’s a MaxPreps poll or state coaches poll, will oppose formidable and top-ranked Cascade Christian (12-0) in the Tacoma Dome (see related story) on Saturday for the Class 1A championship. Game time is 10 a.m.

Colville runs over La Salle

November 18, 2014

Tough Royal next in quarterfinals

Colville High head coach Randy Cornwell has said more than once that his 10-0 Indians are an “all-weather” football team. Cornwell wasn’t kidding.
CHS was more physical (nothing new there) and more inclined to play through temperatures in the teens at frigid Colville last Friday night. The result: An easy 52-14 win over visiting La Salle in the first round of the State 1A playoffs.
This mismatch was game, set, match early. Colville ran back the opening kickoff. The early lead was negated on a bonehead CHS penalty well behind the run.

Panthers struggle past Touchet

Once again, the Cusick Panthers were involved in a 1B- 8-man playoff game against the Touchet Indians that came down to the final minutes, and once again the Panthers came out on top, this time with a hard-earned 34-28 road victory over a rugged opponent.
“Whenever we play Touchet it’s that way,” said CHS head coach Sonny Finley. “We were expecting a close game the whole way…we really didn’t expect it to come down to the final possession again, but it did.”

Republic decimates Pomeroy

November 18, 2014

in Spokane Friday

Quarterback Aaron Fritts and the twins—seniors Alex and Angelo Rivera—all ran for more than 100 yards to lead streaking Republic (10-1) to a 56-0 smashing of Pomeroy in a State 1B (eight-man) playoff game last Friday night at frozen Kettle Falls.
The playoff game had been moved from Republic because of alleged issues with the Tigers’ home field (no press box and no fence around the perimeter of the field).

Cornwell, ‘Carp’ Coaches of the Year for Indians

Colville High (9-0) dominated this year’s Northeast A League All-League selections that were announced on Monday.
The second-ranked Indians, who drew a first round bye this week and won’t know their first state playoff opponent until likely at least Nov. 8 or 9, got considerable respect from fellow NEA coaches during the selection process.
As they should have.
