Defending NEA champion Colville still on top

April 18, 2012

But Indians tested against
Chewelah

The unbeaten Colville High School girl’s tennis team faced a rigorous test on Tuesday when Chewelah’s upstart tennis team, an upset winner of Lakeside last week in Northeast A League tennis play, visited the defending NEA champion Indians.
Chewelah dropped a narrow 3-2 decision earlier this season to Colville.
“That might prove to be a bit more interesting than I had expected,” CHS head coach Phil Johnson said after Chewelah downed always tough Lakeside. “There won’t be any room for error against them.”

Chewelah breaks out the bats

April 13, 2012

Chewelah’s baseball team finally got to spend some time on the diamond this past week, playing five games since last Monday. So it goes when the early spring has been uncommonly wet and inclement.
Jenkins High School head coach Luke Jeanneret isn’t too worried about all the games in a short, quick stretch. Jeanneret figures his pitching is deep enough and able to take the wear and tear so many games can put on a staff.
