Chewelah splits openers

December 8, 2011

Chewelah boys basketball split their first two games of the sea­son this past week, losing a close game to Deer Park, but finishing the week with a strong performance in a win over Kettle Falls.
Against Deer Park, the Cougars overcame a poor shooting first quarter and a 19-3 deficit, but ran out of gas late in the fourth quarter and lost 63-56.
“We came out flat,” said head coach Rocky Verbeck. “We were down 19-1 at one point on 1-11 shooting, but the kids showed some resolve and we got it go­ing.”

Colville will be tough again in the Northeast A

December 7, 2011

Colville High shared a Northeast A League wrestling title with Lakeside and Riverside last season. There is no reason to believe that the Indians will have to share anything this time around. Randy Cloke’s Indians get the pre-season nod as the team to beat in the NEA.
The Indians, the defending District 7 1A champions, are particularly strong at the lower weights again this season. There are some holes in the upper weights.
Colville returns five of the seven wrestlers who qualified for the Mat Classic state championships in Tacoma last February.

The Bulldogs of head coach Joe Kerns will be at the Liberty Tournament on Saturday (9 a.m. start).

Give a shout out to a soldier

December 5, 2011

As everyone gets caught up in the holiday fervor, it’s important to remember our men and women in the Armed Forces who are sacrificing more than the usual luxuries that are associated with this season.
In an effort to provide a link between United States soldiers and their loved ones at home, the Statesman-Examiner is inviting the public to post a video message to a family member or friend in the military on the S-E website, www.statesmanexaminer.com.

Ray Clark, Al Bushnell back to lead Colville

November 30, 2011

It could be another interesting winter for Colville High girl’s basketball.
The Indians, who finished 17-5 last season, lost five key seniors off a veteran club, but they return a solid nucleus of players and some promising newcomers that could pull some surprises in the competitive Northeast A League this winter.
Colville also returns a couple of familiar names and faces that have been actively involved with Colville girl’s basketball for many years.

People you may know

November 29, 2011

The Colville High School auditorium is empty, save for Gary Killings sitting at the Grand Piano in the center of the stage. He plays middle C, repeating the chord methodically as he adjusts the gleaming instrument’s music pins to achieve the perfect pitch.
“I once had a little girl stand next to me for over 30 minutes while I tuned her family’s piano,” Killings recalls. “I was surprised that she just stood and watched me the whole time as I did just what I’m doing now. Then, finally, she looked at me and asked, “Don’t you know any other songs?”
