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.

Cougars should be among Northeast A elite this winter

But St. Geo ruins Chewelah’s opener

The Chewelah Cougars boy’s basketball season kicked off the 2012-2013 season last Friday with a game at home against Panorama League power St. George’s.
Unfortunately, shooting trouble from the free throw and three-point lines contributed to the 61-51 loss.
A poor shooting night and foul trouble were the biggest obstacles to overcome for the Cougars, not the 21-point night from St. Geo post Dexter Sienko, according to head coach Rocky Verbeck.

Hubbard leads Colville to a pair of wins

December 6, 2012

NWC, Okanogan up next this week

Colville High (2-0) got the 2012-2013 boy’s basketball season off to a fast start last weekend with a pair of rugged road wins.
On Friday, Colville led much of the way, then withstood a fourth quarter rally to hold off Class 2B Reardan, 47-41. On Saturday at Sandpoint, CHS fell behind early, but behind 6-9 junior post Matt Hubbard, the Indians won, 46-39.

New challenges for CHS

Indians move
up to Class 2A

BY CHRIS COWBROUGH

Replicating last season’s 15-12 record and a Sweet 16 finish in Class 1A will be tough for the Colville High boy’s basketball team. For one thing, the Indians are playing up and are back in the 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians can only dream about being back where they belong—in 1A…at least for the next two seasons.
CHS also lost two-thirds of a rugged front line when seniors Alex Pond (6-5) and J.R. Henry (6-6) graduated. That kind of size and athleticism will be tough to replace.

Colville could surprise in GNL

No seniors on
2012-2013 team

Never count out a Colville High girl’s basketball team.
The Indians, who graduated three All-Northeast A performers last season and move up to the 2A Great Northern League this winter for the two-year WIAA enrollment cycle, should still be formidable.
After all, while there are no seniors on this year’s roster, the 2012-2013 CHS varsity is a group that head coach Ray Clark and his daughter, assistant coach Kajsa Brons, have worked with since they were fourth graders.

Speed in spades

Yes, there is youth—and there is basketball experience.
