Rankings mean nothing at this juncture of the high school wrestling season. In high school wrestling, itâ€™s all about the post-season.
That said, top-ranked Freeman High served notice in the strongest Class 1A wrestling league in the state that the Scotties will be a force to be reckoned with once District rolls around early next month.
Last Wednesday on the home mat, Colville eased past Medical Lake 60-18 in a mismatch that took all of 20-minutes to complete and included nine forfeits.
Cougars lose to
The Jenkins High boyâ€™s basketball team fell in a pair of Northeast A League games last week--61-26 to Freeman on the road and 55-39 to Newport at home.
The Cougars have been hampered by slow starts all season. Last week was no exception. Chewelah was outscored 41-14 in the first quarter. Head coach Jason Norman is at a bit of a loss as to why this keeps happening.
NWC up next
Kettle Falls faces a busy week of Northeast 2B boyâ€™s basketball games this week.
The Bulldogs (0-14, 0-10), who lost to Liberty, 78-45, and to Colfax last Saturday, 62-18, will host Northport on Tuesday in a non-league game (7:30 p.m.) before getting back into NE 2B play on Friday at Springdale (7:30 p.m.).

It was a busy week for the Colville High wrestling team last week.
The Indians started the week last Wednesday night with a much-anticipated Northeast A League showdown with defending 2A state champion and fellow Northeast A League member Deer Park.
The Indians, who came in to the match-up on a two-match winning streak over DP, were favored in their first home match of the winter.
So much for the form chart.

4-1 in NEA
Colville High (5-6, 4-1) picked up a pair of hard-earned Northeast A League girlâ€™s basketball wins last week.
The Indians posted a come-from-behind 42-38 road win at Medical Lake back on Jan. 6, outscoring the Cardinals 16-5 in the third quarter.
Back home last Friday night, CHS again fell behind early before another solid second half propelled the Indians to a 47-39 win over a Freeman High (1-9, 1-4) team that is a mere shell of the powerhouse it once was.
Colville will host Riverside on Tuesday. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

Colville vs. DP
Colville Highâ€™s road warriors otherwise referred to as the CHS wrestling team, will actually compete on the home mats for a change on Wednesday night.
The Indians, coming off an impressive win at the 16-team Cheney Invitational last Saturday, will host Deer Park in a Northeast A League dual Wednesday night. The opening match-up gets underway at 7 p.m.
Deer Park has won state championships five of the past six years and looks to be very solid again this winter.
Indians have won last two meetings
Colville falls to
Colville dropped a pair of games at last weekâ€™s West Valley Holiday Tournament.
Colville played Okanogan for the second time in a week, falling 65-49 to the Bulldogs. That was a marked improvement from the first meeting between the two teams.
The Indians also fell to Tonasket, 68-58.
The Indians, who have won only once to date in a difficult December, travel to Medical Lake on Tuesday and return home Friday to host Freeman. Both games are scheduled for 5:45 p.m. starts.
Kettle Fallsâ€™ poor second half added up to a Northeast 2B girlâ€™s basketball loss at Ritzville High School to Lind-Ritzville/Sprague last Saturday night.
The Lady Bulldogs (4-6) led the Broncos (7-1) with about one-minute left in the first half before the host team went on a run that continued into the second half. LRS outscored Kettle Falls 36-15 in the second half en route to a 51-36 win.
Jenna Barrett scored 21 points and pulled down eight rebounds for the Broncos. Peyton Curtis added 13 points and Tessa Jantz chipped in with 11.
