Columbia-Inchelium rolls past outmanned Waterville

October 10, 2012

Wolves visit
Northport Friday

A Columbia-Inchelium football team that struggled with consistency and continuity early-on this football season seems to be rounding into form as the stretch run toward the 1B (eight-man) football playoffs looms.
The Timberwolves (4-2, 2-1) blasted overmatched Waterville (1-5, 1-2) last Friday afternoon at Inchelium, 62-12, in a battle of Northeast 1B North and NE 1B South teams.
C-I rolled to a 24-6 first quarter lead and increased that working margin to 44-12 at halftime.

Cougars escape
Medical Lake

The Chewelah Cougars (5-1, 3-0) went into their game at Medical Lake (5-1, 3-1) last Friday knowing the winner would be in no worse than a tie for first place in the Northeast A League after that night’s game. The Cougars built big first half lead and managed to hold on for a 33-28 win.
Jenkins High and Freeman are tied atop the NEA standings this week. ML is one game back.
“It was a big win for us,” said head coach Jim Fisk, “I thought, as a team, we played well, Medical Lake is a good team--the best we’ve played in our league this year.”

Colville High continued its impressive and unbeaten run through the September high school volleyball season last week.
But the Indians (8-0), who haven’t lost a game yet, much less a match this season, lost standout middle hitter Aubrey Buckner last weekend at Clarkston to a possible season-ending knee injury.
Fellow middle hitter Chantel Nussbaum went down earlier in the week with an ankle injury.

Chewelah eases
past Kettle Falls

The keys for the Chewelah Cougars (4-1, 2-0) coming into last Friday afternoon’s game against Kettle Falls (0-5, 0-3) were to take control early, keep mistakes to a minimum and get through the game healthy.
The Cougars accomplished all three goals, dominating the Bulldogs on both sides of the ball on their way to a 36-6 victory.
“We played up,” said head coach Jim Fisk. “You have to play at a high level all the time in our league.
“Overall, we did a good job; we didn’t make any glaring errors.”

Delayed at the bridge: An update on ongoing construction

October 3, 2012

The bridge at Kettle Falls was built in 1929 to eliminate delays, but lately, it has delayed construction deadlines, traffic, truckers, and emergency vehicles.
Work on the bridge was delayed before construction even started in August, according to Bob Hilmes, the project engineer employed by WSDOT (Washington State Department of Transportation).
The bridge needed repairs over two years ago, according to Hilmes. When two gaping holes opened on the bridge over the past winter due to abrasive snowplows, it became apparent that construc¬tion timetables needed to be pushed up.
