District tournament next for CHS wrestlers

January 31, 2013

Indians share GNL dual championship

It’s post-season time for high school wrestlers in Washington state. Fourth-ranked Colville High, who moved up to the class 2A Great Northern League from the Northeast A in the fall, made their return foray into the GNL a successful one with a league dual co-championship (with East Valley).
The Indians’, who would be the odds-on favorite to win a 1A championship if they were still members of the NEA, suffered a lone dual loss this winter to five-time defending State 2A champion Deer Park.

Kettle girls pick up wins over Chewelah, ML

January 22, 2013

Top-ranked Freeman, Selkirk
this week

Kettle Falls High (6-10, 2-7) picked up a pair of Northeast A League wins last week and finished 2-1 during a busy stretch of action.
The Lady Bulldogs eased past host Chewelah 49-39 back on Jan. 15 and downed host Medical Lake 38-35 on Friday night before absorbing a 50-36 loss back at Kettle Falls Middle School on Saturday afternoon to Newport (11-6, 6-3).
THIS WEEK
Kettle Falls has the unenviable task of hosting perennial NEA champion and State 1A title contender Freeman (16-0, 8-0) on Tuesday. Game time is 5:45 p.m.

Another busy week for Colville

January 22, 2013

Indians split with DP, Pullman

An issue that has plagued the Colville High girl’s basketball team all season long came into play last Saturday evening against visiting Pullman. The Indians (7-7, 3-3) turned in subpar second and third quarters offensively and that was just enough of a cushion for the Greyhounds (10-5, 6-1), who had to withstand a fourth quarter CHS rally to post a 48-43 win.
Back on Jan. 15, Colville blasted host Deer Park (0-15, 0-7) 62-16.

Pullman, Deer Park next for Colville

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

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

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.
