Pullman, Deer Park next for Colville

January 16, 2013

Indians look sharp in beating Cheney

Colville High (6-6, 2-2) took out a few frustrations on Cheney (3-8, 1-4) last Saturday night at home in a 53-35 Great Northern League girl’s basketball win. The win over the Blackhawks was one of the Indians’ best all-around outings of the season and helped take away some of the sting of a pair of GNL losses to West Valley and East Valley during the week.

Chewelah takes over first place in the Northeast A

January 16, 2013

Defense
has keyed
Cougars’ run

The Jenkins High boys’ basketball team finished the first half of Northeast A League play undefeated and in first place after winning a pair of games last week.
Back on Jan. 8 at Medical Lake, in a showdown for first place in the NEA, Chewelah used a big second half to beat the Cardinals 47-37, then overwhelmed visiting Newport with a stifling defensive effort in a 63-20 win on Friday.
Once again, the Cougars found different ways to get the job done and won with different players making key contributions.

Poor start torpedoes any chance of a Colville upset

Deer Park escapes
with big dual win

To pull off an upset of second-ranked and five-time defending State 2A wrestling champion Deer Park last Thursday night, fourth-ranked Colville needed to stay off their backs and get a break or two. That didn’t happen.
Colville, who buried Pullman in a dual match-up in the Palouse one night earlier, lost its first six matches, three of them by pin, and trailed 27-0 before Indians’ 152-pounder Ryley Smith decisioned Deer Park’s Jason Aebischer, 7-5.

Chewelah picks up wins

December 31, 2012

The Chewelah boys’ basketball team remained undefeated in Northeast A League play with wins against Riverside and Lakeside before Christmas
Jenkins High head coach Rocky Verbeck credits strong bench play from Tommy Norman, Cordell Bean, Deylin Peone and Lars Berger for the Cougars ability to grind out wins.
“I think that is going to be our theme this year--we ground out those wins,” said Verbeck. “They don’t score often, but our bench is making the most of their minutes and that is always big for us on the defensive side of things.”

Colville can’t hold on in fourth quarter

December 31, 2012

Indians play without Hubbard

It’s tough to win without your all-league meal ticket.
So it went for Colville High (4-4) in last Thursday night’s non-league boy’s basketball game with visiting Priest River.
The Indians were playing without their 6-9 junior post, Matt Hubbard. The team’s leading scorer and rebounder was in Oklahoma with his family.
Colville played well early and led by as many as nine points in the third quarter before Priest River found their collective shooting eye.

Colville girls win fourth straight

December 31, 2012

Top-ranked Post Falls up next

The Colville High girl’s basketball team (4-3) won its fourth straight game last Thursday night, holding off visiting Priest River (6-5) and posting a 38-35 win.
Colville got off fast in this one. The Indians put together one of their best opening quarters of the season to date in running to an early 18-6 lead.
CHS turned over the Spartans frequently in the early-going with their full court pressure. But PR battled back, outscoring Colville 10-6 in the second quarter before the Indians regained some momentum with an 8-4 third quarter run.

Missy Bennett resigns

December 12, 2012

State coaching Hall of Famer
will be hard to replace

One of the most successful coaches in the history of Colville High School athletics has tendered her resignation.
Missy Bennett, who led Colville High to the 2011 State 1A volleyball championship and to a fourth place finish at the 2012 State 2A Tournament at Pierce College in Lakewood, announced earlier this week that she is resigning a post she has held for 27 seasons.

It’s been awhile since Kettle Falls was 4-1

December 12, 2012

Bulldogs lose
first to Tonasket

A vastly improved Kettle Falls High boy’s basketball team suffered its first loss of the season last Saturday when visiting Tonasket of the Caribou-Trail League rolled to an early lead en route to a 62-47 win.
The loss was Kettle’s first in five games.
The Bulldogs (4-1) won two of three non-league games during the week, downing Springdale 46-35 back on Dec. 4 behind Connor McKern’s 10 points and blasting visiting Curlew (2-3) 61-33 on Dec. 6.

Coug gals split games

December 12, 2012

Colville up next

The Chewelah Cougars girl’s basketball team split their games this week. Jenkins High looked good in a game against a somewhat depleted Deer Park program, while being pushed around some by a bigger, taller Northwest Christian team.
Overall, however, Chewelah head coach Tom Skok is pleased with his team so far and is looking forward to the rest of the season.

Colville High wrestlers fourth in strong Deer Park Invite field

December 6, 2012

Indians will fill
every weight

Colville High exhibited some early-season strength last Saturday at the always tough Deer Park Invitational wrestling meet.
The Indians, who dominated the Northeast A League the past two seasons before moving up to the Class 2A Great Northern League for the two-year enrollment cycle, served notice last Saturday that they will be a power to contend with in the GNL.
With tournament champion Chandler Knight leading the way with a championship at 182, Colville finished fourth in the tournament field with 137 points.
