Chewelah next

Northeast A League pre-season favorite Freeman held off Colville 14-7 last Friday night in the non-league season-opener for both teams.
Despite struggling on offense and putting up some of the lowest rushing totals in many years, the Indians came close to pulling this one out or getting it into overtime in the game’s final seconds.
But the late comeback ended inside the final minute of play when Freeman recovered a fumble after a CHS pass completion at the Indians’ 40-yard-line.

Colville opens with rival Freeman

Colville High returns more players than anybody in the Great Northern League this fall. The Indians, who struggled to a 3-7, 1-5 record with a group long on inexperience last fall, look to rebound and make things interesting in the rigorous GNL this fall.
Colville ended a frustrating 2012 season with an eye-opening 26-20 win in the mud over Pullman. That upset cost the ‘Hounds an undisputed GNL championship and instilled some confidence in the Indians.
There is no reason not to continue where CHS left off against Pullman last November.

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.
