NEA champion Chewelah opens playoffs against Okanogan

November 1, 2012

Cougars will host Crossover

The Northeast A League champion Chewelah Cougars (8-1, 6-0) finished an undefeated league season with a 55-7 trouncing of the Riverside Rams (1-8, 1-5) last Friday night at Snyder Field.
The Cougars jumped out to a big early lead and head coach Jim Fisk said that was the blueprint going in to this game.
“We went in and took care of business,” Fisk said. “It was nice to put them away early, get out of there with no injuries and be able to get ready for next week.”

Mom & two sons officiate tourney

Volleyball officiating is a family affair for the Smith clan of Chewelah.
Denise Smith, a very familiar face around Chewelah and one of that community’s most active and involved residents, has been officiating high school volleyball in northeast Washington for 27 years.
At last Saturday’s District 7 2A Tournament at Colville, Smith was joined by two of her sons—Stryker and Blaze. The Smith trio worked the tournament and was on the floor for the championship match-up between Colville and East Valley.

But Indians face
tough week

It’s Homecoming Week at Colville High School and that means fall sports’ coaches are wondering how their athletes will react to all that pomp, circumstance and distraction.
CHS volleyball coach Missy Bennett, whose Indians are unbeaten in Great Northern League action and haven’t lost a game, much less a match this fall to date, isn’t going on the record to say she has no use for Homecoming. But coaches will worry about focus and not who’s on the Homecoming royalty or who has/hasn’t got a date to the Homecoming dance.

Northport Friday

A Columbia-Inchelium football team that struggled with consistency and continuity early-on this football season seems to be rounding into form as the stretch run toward the 1B (eight-man) football playoffs looms.

Cougars escape
Medical Lake

The Chewelah Cougars (5-1, 3-0) went into their game at Medical Lake (5-1, 3-1) last Friday knowing the winner would be in no worse than a tie for first place in the Northeast A League after that night’s game. The Cougars built big first half lead and managed to hold on for a 33-28 win.
Jenkins High and Freeman are tied atop the NEA standings this week. ML is one game back.
“It was a big win for us,” said head coach Jim Fisk, “I thought, as a team, we played well, Medical Lake is a good team--the best we’ve played in our league this year.”
