Cougars drop trio of games

December 21, 2011

The Chewelah Cougars girl’s basketball team dropped three games before their ten-day holi­day break, losing games to Re­public and Medical Lake at home and falling to Northwest Christian on the road.

December 19, 2011

Pend Oreille River targeted

Washington state wildlife officials will ask anglers to help control the advance of voracious and predatory northern pike toward the Columbia River.

Indians lose badly to East Valley, Cheney

December 15, 2011

After picking up wins over Priest River and Reardan to open the season, the Colville High boy’s basketball team ran up against a couple of athletic Great Northern League 2A clubs last week in non-league home games.
The Indians (2-2) didn’t handle pressure at all well either night and lost to schools CHS will see next fall when they are forced to move back up to the Class 2A GNL. WIAA enrollment figures used to determine classifications for the next two-year cycle (2012-13 and 2013-14) indicate that Colville will be moving back up.

Northport off to fast start

December 15, 2011

Schedule gets more rigorous
after the holiday break

Northport High is off to a fast start this 2011-2012 boy’s basketball season. The Mustangs, 5-1 overall and 2-0 in the Panorama 1B League, haven’t really gotten into the meat of their schedule yet, according to coach, Erik Stark.
“Our record looks good, but we have played a lot of young and inexperienced teams,” Stark said. “The really good team we played (Valley Christian), beat us by 40.”
Stark says the Mustangs’ defense is ahead of the offense at this early juncture.

Bulldogs home on the mats Wednesday

December 15, 2011

Kettle Falls High sent part of its wrestling team to the Liberty (Spangle) Invitational last Saturday.
The Bulldogs may not have had quantity at Liberty, but judging from the third place team trophy Kettle Falls brought home, there was certainly plenty of quality to go around.
Kettle’s Garrett Anderson placed third at 106 pounds and Lindsey Olvera was fourth at 112. Eric Ross was fifth at 125 pounds; Jacob Walsh was fifth at 135.
Winning titles at Liberty were Dan Kearney (152 pounds), Austin Anderson (160) and Tyler Vining (195).

December 15, 2011

Ben Johnstone led Chewelah with 17 points.

Colville faces busy week

December 15, 2011

The Indians’ aggressive full-court pressure defense took the Blackhawks out early. Colville led 14-4 after one quarter and was able to maintain the energy and pressure.

Chewelah splits openers

December 8, 2011

Chewelah boys basketball split their first two games of the sea­son this past week, losing a close game to Deer Park, but finishing the week with a strong performance in a win over Kettle Falls.

Colville will be tough again in the Northeast A

December 7, 2011

Colville High shared a Northeast A League wrestling title with Lakeside and Riverside last season. There is no reason to believe that the Indians will have to share anything this time around. Randy Cloke’s Indians get the pre-season nod as the team to beat in the NEA.
The Indians, the defending District 7 1A champions, are particularly strong at the lower weights again this season. There are some holes in the upper weights.
Colville returns five of the seven wrestlers who qualified for the Mat Classic state championships in Tacoma last February.
