Cougars down
ML, Colville

The Jenkins High girls’ basketball team has apparently shaken off a slow December start and has crated some momentum heading into the holidays and 2015.
Chewelah picked up a pair of Northeast A League wins last week over Medical Lake and Colville.
Head coach Tom Skok was happy with the two-win week; he traces the change in the Cougars’ play to a play late in the first quarter against Medical Lake last week.

A new press helped Colville run past host Chewelah last Friday night in the annual 395 Showdown with the Cougars. The Indians led 30-20 at halftime and used a 17-6 third quarter run to blow the game open en route to a 61-33 Northeast A League win.
It was Colville’s first win of the season against four losses.
The win came on the heels of a 57-47 loss at Deer Park back on Dec. 16.
