Spring sports get underway

March 20, 2013

Colville High hosted Chewelah and Northport in an impromptu three-team baseball Jamboree last Friday afternoon. The Jamboree, with each team playing three-inning “games,” served as a warm-up for this week’s schedule.
Colville opens the season on Tuesday at home when they host Great Northern League pre-season favorite East Valley in a single game (4 p.m. start) at Hofstetter Park. The Indians of head coach Boo Morrison travel to Deer Park for a GNL twin-bill with the Stags on Saturday (noon start). On Tuesday, March 26, CHS is at West Valley (4 p.m. start).

Different league—another run

March 13, 2013

Indians still have plenty of weapons

Colville High’s high-flying softball program will look a little different this spring for a couple of reasons.
First, the Indians are back in the familiar confines of the 2A Great Northern League for at least a two-year WIAA enrollment cycle. And second, assistant coach Jim Ebel has been elevated to head coach after Mandy Sumner, who guided the Indians to the cusp of a State 1A championship the past two seasons, resigned. Gone with Sumner is her husband, assistant coach Rob Sumner.

The return of the pole vault to CHS track & field

March 13, 2013

Indians also return to 2A GNL

By Colville High track and field coach Ty Brown’s recollection, it’s been several years since the Indians have been outside for pre-season practice sessions for day one.
Well, welcome to the relatively balmy spring of 2013 (so far).
Brown and the Indians will take it. It fact, CHS had glorious upper 50’s, bright sunny conditions for their annual Black and White inter-squad Jamboree last Saturday with Kettle Falls.

Despite move up to 2A, Indians should be in the mix

March 13, 2013

Like most Colville High School athletic teams, the move up from the Northeast A League to the rigors of the 2A Great Northern League likely didn’t do the Indians’ baseball team any favors this spring.
But you control what you can control. And the vagaries of student enrollment counts aren’t among things in the control of a coach.
You play who has been scheduled.
“It’s a new challenge,” CHS head coach Boo Morrison said of the move to 2A. “It’s a tough league.”

East side teams come up big

March 8, 2013

Pullman wins
first 2A title

Several eastern Washington high school basketball teams came up big at their respective state basketball tournaments last weekend.
Great Northern League 2A champion Pullman (27-1), winners of 27 straight games, captured its first state championship basketball trophy Saturday night in the Yakima SunDome, downing Anacortes, 44-39.

Colville ninth at Mat Classic

Colville High’s Chandler Knight (182) finished third at Friday and Saturday’s XXV Mat Classic at the Tacoma Dome to help lead the Indians to a ninth place finish (52.5 points).
Teammate Trenton Welton finished fifth at 138 pounds and Colville’s 152-pound standout, Tanner Smith, capped a stellar high school career with a sixth place finish.
The Indians’ Grady Nelson (132), Ian Cox (138) and Ryley Smith (152) did not place.

A quick visit to the post-season for Indians

February 20, 2013

Cheney escapes

The Colville High girl’s basketball season came to an abrupt and disappointing end back on Feb. 12 when visiting Cheney escaped with a 35-33 win in District 7 2A loser-out action.
CHS junior Sadie Learn led the Indians with 11 points.
This one was close throughout. A 13-9 fourth quarter run for the Blackhawks was just enough. CHS (10-11) had its chances down the stretch, but some late misfires from the field and the free throw line (six of 15) didn’t help.

Cashmere ends Chewelah season

February 20, 2013

NEA champions
finish 19-6

The Chewelah Cougars boys’ basketball season came to an end Saturday with a 73-47 loss to Cashmere High School in the third place/loser-out game of the 1A Bi-District tournament in Omak.
The Cougars were in the third place game by virtue of pulling out an incredible 53-50, come-from-behind win over Northeast A League rival Lakeside on Friday night.
The Cougars finished with a 19-6 overall record and won the NEA title with an unblemished 12-0 record.

Colville sends six to Mat Classic

But injury

Colville High turned in some successes at last Friday and Saturday’s Class 2A Region IV wrestling tournament at Ellensburg High School. But there were also some disappointments.
District 7 champion Colville High qualified six wrestlers to Friday and Saturday’s Mat Classic XXV at the Tacoma Dome. The Indians, who also shared a GNL dual meet championship this winter, finished fourth at the regional with 150.5 points.
