Deer Park next
It was another good week for Colville High wrestling.
The Indians turned in a rare shutout in last Wednesdayâs Great Northern League wrestling dual with visiting Pullman. CHS recorded seven pins and picked up five forfeits in an 83-0 shellacking of the hapless âHounds.
The quickest pin of the night: Austin Donoghâs donât blink 13 second pin at 126 pounds.
Riverside, L-side on tap this week
Kettle Falls (5-6, 0-4) dropped a pair of Northeast A League boyâs basketball games last week at home. Back on Jan. 7 at Kettle Falls Middle School, Newport built an early 22-11 lead and made it stand up for a 70-62 win.
On Friday, the Bulldogs simply had no answers for Freeman (5-5, 3-1) on either side of the ball in a lopsided 77-39 loss.
In the loss to Newport (6-6, 2-3), defense tended to take a holiday, as the Grizzlies put up 22 first quarter points.
Riverside, L-side up next for KF
It was a rough week for Kettle Falls High (6-5, 1-3) in Northeast A League girlâs basketball.
The Lady Bulldogs fell behind 17-5 after the first quarter back on Jan. 7 against Newport. It didnât get much better the rest of the way and KFHS dropped a 60-39 decision to the visiting Grizzlies.
Newport, like they have done all winter long, relied on two principal scoring threatsâHolly Malsbury (29 points) and Jolie Frederick (16).
The hard-working Malsbury was 12 of 14 from the free throw line. As a team, Newport was 22 of 28 at the charity stripe.

Carla Anne (Marlow) Keeley lost her courageous fight with breast cancer on Dec. 29, 2013 at the age of 49. Carla truly enjoyed life. She loved to cook for family and friends, spent a lot of time in the summer gardening and spent her time in the winter quilting.

She was a kind and generous soul, and was considered as one of the most loving and giving people by all who knew her. Carla will be greatly missed by all and will forever be in our hearts.
âTell my friends Iâm not a wimp!â whispered a dying Alan D. Wilma into the phone to one of his friends. Then Al turned in his hospital bed and managed a smile at his wife, Saundra, and their daughter, Genevieve.
Even as Al lay dying at Holy Family Hospital in Spokane, he did not lose his courage or his wry sense of humor. Alan was a most unusual man. He was intuitive, immensely intelligent and imaginative. All who truly knew him enjoyed his wit and ironic sense of humor.
