Expect Colville High boys cross-country to be competitive

Indians move up to GNL

Colville High lost some key components off last November’s Class 1A state runner-up team, but the Indians certainly have enough left in the tank to make for an interesting reintroduction into the Class 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians will be led by third year varsity standout Kevin Carpenter. The junior finished eighth and got a spot on the podium at last November’s State 1A meet at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.

Defending state 1A champions will be a force in 2A GNL

September 6, 2012

One of strongest-ever CHS teams

If Colville High were slotted where it belonged, back in the Northeast A League, the Indians would certainly be favorites to successfully defend the 1A championship they won last November in Yakima.
That said, the Indians, who return to the Class 2A Great Northern League this fall for a two-season run, will be a force to contend with in their old league. Under longtime coach Missy Bennett, entering her 27th season at the helm, Colville was always a power in the GNL.

Northport will be competitive

Jeremiah Johnson leads Mustangs

Northport turned a few heads when they finished third in the Northeast 1B North division after being picked to finish in the basement of what, historically, has been the toughest eight-man football conference in Washington state.
Replicating that 6-5 record and the first playoff appearance by a Northport football team in the so-called “modern era” could be a difficult task in 2012. But veteran coach Don Fox, assisted once again by his son, Shane, has some solid holdover talent back.

It’s a long way from Hunters to Seinajoki

Football journey nears an end for Kegel

It has been an interesting ride for this minister’s son and former small town and small college football star to the cusp of parenthood and the wild vagaries of European professional football.
And no, we are not talking about the other futbol.
So it goes for one of the best all-around athletes and football players to ever snap on a chin-strap for Columbia High School (Hunters).

Kickoff Classic Saturday will feature Colville, Freeman

August 31, 2012

WIAA ‘Classic’ moves east

Colville High will get its 2012 football season underway in a different fashion on Saturday.
The Indians, who will move up to Class 2A this fall and return to the Great Northern League for the two-year WIAA reclassification cycle, will open the season on Saturday, Sept. 1 against Freeman in the so-called WIAA Kickoff Classic at Eastern Washington University.
It’s the first time in memory that a CHS football game has started the season on a Saturday afternoon.

Timberwolves look to rebound from disappointing 2011

August 29, 2012

Numbers down at Columbia/Inchelium

If Columbia-Inchelium plans to be a factor in the Northeast 1B (eight-man) football race this fall, the Timberwolves are going to have to get it done with fewer players.
Chuck Wyborney, in his 21st season coaching at either Columbia High or for the Columbia-Inchelium combine (third season), has only 15 players out this season (eight from Columbia and seven from Inchelium).
C-I, who finished a disappointing 3-7 last season, should see improvement in that bottom line this fall, low numbers or not.

New challenge for Kettle Falls

August 29, 2012

Bulldogs move into NEA

There are some new challenges facing the Kettle Falls High football program this fall. Primary among them is the fact that the Bulldogs were moved back into the Class 1A Northeast A League after the most recent WIAA enrollment count.
While KFHS will more than likely move back down to the more comfortable (and appropriate) confines of Class 2B in two years, they are going to have to find a way to compete with bigger schools in the NEA in the interim.

Colville moves back to GNL

August 29, 2012

Color the Indians ‘green’ this fall

Two-time defending Northeast A League champion Colville High will get acquainted with their old neighbors in the Great Northern League this fall and in 2013 after WIAA realignment dumped the Indians back into Class 2A.
Given the inexperience predominantly across the board in the CHS football camp this fall, the NEA would have been a nice fit again, but that’s not the way the enrollment numbers rolled this time around.
