March 20, 2013

A busy week on tap

Colville High (1-1) split a pair of high school soccer matches last week to get the 2013 boy’s soccer season underway.
Back on March 12, Colville downed new Northeast A League member Medical Lake 4-2. On Thursday, another very good Cheney High team dispatched the Indians 6-0 on the Colville pitch. That match was the Great Northern League opener for both schools.
THIS WEEK
Colville will travel to Deer Park on Tuesday to face the Stags in a GNL match-up (4 p.m. start).

CHS freshman
opens a few eyes

A Colville High track and field team that includes more than a few new faces this spring got the 2013 high school season underway last Saturday at the 16-team West Valley Invitational.
CHS head coach Ty Brown said that going into the mid-March shakedown cruise the goal was to get a feel for what the Indians have this spring as they embark on a new two-year adventure back in the Great Northern League.

Spring sports get underway

March 20, 2013

Colville High hosted Chewelah and Northport in an impromptu three-team baseball Jamboree last Friday afternoon. The Jamboree, with each team playing three-inning “games,” served as a warm-up for this week’s schedule.
Colville opens the season on Tuesday at home when they host Great Northern League pre-season favorite East Valley in a single game (4 p.m. start) at Hofstetter Park. The Indians of head coach Boo Morrison travel to Deer Park for a GNL twin-bill with the Stags on Saturday (noon start). On Tuesday, March 26, CHS is at West Valley (4 p.m. start).

Oh deer--does Colville have a whitetail problem?

March 20, 2013

Should the city do anything about deer inside the city limits?
There seemed to be controversy and concern about the issue of a seemingly growing whitetail deer herd in spring of 2011, when a local resident Mike Kisman brought complaints to the Colville City Council Chambers. Kisman thought there was a deer control issue that the city needed to address.
Kisman is not listed in the telephone book and could not be reached for comment on this article.

Gold fever on Buckhorn Mountain

March 13, 2013

Buckhorn Mountain lies serene and undisturbed, dotted by snow-covered slopes that are a skier’s dream.
But underneath the mountain's placid exterior and photogenic face, Kinross Gold Corporation operates an elaborate and sophisticated mining operation to excavate and extract precious gold ore.
A muddy dirt road and a few buildings dotting the side of the mountain are the only telltale and discernible signs of the mine's location.

Different league—another run

Indians still have plenty of weapons

Colville High’s high-flying softball program will look a little different this spring for a couple of reasons.
First, the Indians are back in the familiar confines of the 2A Great Northern League for at least a two-year WIAA enrollment cycle. And second, assistant coach Jim Ebel has been elevated to head coach after Mandy Sumner, who guided the Indians to the cusp of a State 1A championship the past two seasons, resigned. Gone with Sumner is her husband, assistant coach Rob Sumner.

The return of the pole vault to CHS track & field

Indians also return to 2A GNL

By Colville High track and field coach Ty Brown’s recollection, it’s been several years since the Indians have been outside for pre-season practice sessions for day one.
Well, welcome to the relatively balmy spring of 2013 (so far).
Brown and the Indians will take it. It fact, CHS had glorious upper 50’s, bright sunny conditions for their annual Black and White inter-squad Jamboree last Saturday with Kettle Falls.
