Colville will still be a factor in GNL volleyball race

September 5, 2013

New coach & some veteran senior talent

There is some serious understatement in play to say that there are a few notable changes in the Colville High School volleyball program this fall.
For one thing, Missy Bennett, who spent 27 years coaching and is a member of the Washington Coaches’ Hall of Fame, is no longer on the sidelines. Bennett is still teaching at CHS, but athletic director Kelly Carr recently hired veteran Kennewick School District coach Ron Schuh to replace one of the Colville School District’s coaching icons (see related story).

Veteran coach moves from Tri-Cities

Nearly one year after longtime Colville High volleyball coach Missy Bennett announced her resignation after arguably the most successful career ever turned in by a CHS coach, athletic director Kelly Carr named Ron Schuh of Kennewick to replace her.
The 54-year-old Schuh, who worked as a physical education teacher at Park Middle School in Kennewick prior to being named to succeed Bennett, is excited about the opportunity.

CHS ‘Midnight Mile’ draws good turnout

August 27, 2013

Cross country
season underway

Let the wind blow and the thunder roll. Sunday evening’s squall through the Colville Valley managed to knock out power and do a fair amount of property damage, but wasn’t able to dampen the Colville High School cross country team’s appointed 2013 season kick-off.
While much of the Valley languished in the dark after a strong thunderstorm knocked out large portions of the local power grid, a swift response by local AVISTA crews had the metered gold restored to CHS well before the Indians’ annual midnight appointment with their new season.

The Basement Boys call it quits

Wrestling club will disband
at the end of August

The Basement Boys program started in 1985 with coaches Denny Reddinger and Monty Jones. The program was called the Hermiston Offroad Stingers.
The club wrestled all three styles and traveled throughout Washington and Oregon. In 1990, the club became the Basement Boys when Monty and Shelley Jones started traveling with their son, Dustin, Sean Riley and many others.
This was the driving force to keep the club alive at the time.
