Lady Bulldogs in thick of NE 2B playoff picture

April 21, 2015

Liberty, S-dale
on tap this week

Kettle Falls High (8-6, 8-4) is looking for a strong regular season finish in the Northeast 2B fast-pitch softball circuit.
Coming off a week where the Lady Bulldogs went 1-3, the strong finish is imperative.
KFHS was routed by one of the strongest 2B softball programs (every Colfax program?) around in Colfax. The Bulldogs of the Palouse downed Kettle Falls 15-1 (five innings) and 9-0.
On Saturday at Davenport, Kettle split with the Gorillas, losing the opener 14-0 and rebounding for an 11-4 second game win.
THIS WEEK

Busy week in store for Colville track & field

April 15, 2015

Interstate, Pasco
up this week

Like most area high school teams, Colville High got a respite from meets during Spring Break. But that will change this week. The Indians will send some athletes to one of the biggest meets of its kind in the West—The Pasco Invitational on Saturday. Entry into the Pasco Invite is via qualifying standard.
Other CHS athletes will compete in the annual Interstate Rivals Invitational at Freeman High School on Friday (3:30 p.m. start).
Before Spring Break last week, CHS competed back on April 3 at the Deer Park Invitational (25 teams).

Luu, Schweitzer lead Indians at Ezra Gordon

April 1, 2015

CHS hosts 29
team Invite

The annual Ezra Gordon track and field Invitational last Saturday at Colville High School may go down in history as the largest one-day sporting event in Colville history. If it wasn’t the largest, then last year’s 30-team event might have been.
With several hundred athletes, more than 1,600 entries and 29 high school teams from around mostly Eastern Washington, who would argue the point?

Colville sweeps Medical Lake

Unbeaten Indians busy this week

Colville High (5-0) swept three Northeast A League baseball games last week. The Indians got solid pitching and timely hitting in blasting Chewelah, 17-0, at home last Tuesday (five innings) before taking two from visiting Medical Lake last Saturday, 9-3, 4-3.
Colville faces a busy slate of games this week. The Indians traveled to Chewelah on Tuesday for a rematch with the Cougars (4 p.m. start).
On Thursday, the Indians head to Nine Mile Falls and a single game with Lakeside (4 p.m.).

Colville will return home on Thursday against the same Newport club that downed Colville 3-1 last week in a non-league fray on the Indians’ pitch. That match will also start at 4 p.m.

Colville will reload—rebuild

March 17, 2015

Indians lost some significant talent

If Colville High has any designs on returning to State later this spring (of course they do), the Indians of head coach Jim Ebel and assistant coach Tim Vaughn will have to replace some significant components to a team that ran roughshod through the Great Northern League the past two seasons and finished 21-4 last spring.
That record included a 1-2 mark at the State 2A Tournament in Selah. For those counting at home, that trip to State was Colville’s 13th straight.

New league, new challenges for Kettle Falls’ baseball

KFHS should
be competitive

Despite a low turnout earlier this winter (22 players) when spring practice sessions got underway, expect second year Kettle Falls High baseball coach Justin Collier to field a competitive team as the Bulldogs embark on their first season in the rigorous Northeast 2B League after spending two seasons in the second division of the Northeast A League.
