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.

Colville High (5-6, 4-1) picked up a pair of hard-earned Northeast A League girlâs 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.
