KFHS plated 37 runs in 16-0, 21-9 routs of the Lancers.

Indians hope to get NEA games in this week

March 30, 2012

Talk about your liquid schedules in a mostly liquid early spring.
Colville High, idle since splitting a season-opening doubleheader at Connell, hopes to get a soggy Hofstetter Field in playing shape this week.
The Indians, who didn’t play a scheduled doubleheader last Saturday against Omak (either at home or in Okanogan County), were scheduled to play their Northeast A League baseball opener at Newport on Tuesday. But Newport’s field wasn’t in any better shape than Colville’s. Whether that one will be rescheduled is anybody’s guess at this juncture of a wet, cool early spring.
