Colville boys second at Pasco

November 9, 2011

Pietroburgo, Carpenter lead Indians to second again

Saving their best race of the season for last, Colville High School’s boy’s cross-country team ran its way to second place at the Washington State Championship Saturday at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.
In what have must have felt like déjà vu, the local harriers, led by senior Biagio Pietroburgo’s fifth place and Kevin Carpenter’s 8th place finish, annexed the runner-up spot behind Northeast A League rival Lakeside. It was Colville’s second straight runner-up finish at Pasco.

Short Shots...

November 3, 2011

It’s playoff time around the Northeast Washington prep sports scene.
High school football playoffs (Crossover/so-called Play-in games) are the featured events this weekend. Colville will host Omak and their Caribou-Trail League Player of the Year, 5-9, 215-pound running back Dylan Green.
Green, who holds most of the No. 4 seeded Pioneers rushing records, including a school single game mark established earlier this season, was also named to the first team defense as a linebacker.
The burly senior is a load and is the focal point of any opposing defense.

Omak up next for Colville

November 2, 2011

Northport faces Cusick in critical Northeast 1B clash

October 26, 2011

In its nearly two years as a resurrected high school football program, Northport High hasn’t faced a game with nearly the implications of Friday night’s Northeast 1B North clash at Cusick. Game time is 7 p.m. Northport (3-1, 5-3) took care of business last Friday, blasting overmatched Republic 58-16 and making Homecoming faithful happy. While the Mustangs were taking care of business, Cusick (3-1, 5-3), struggling with injuries to key players, was upset 24-20 by Wilbur-Creston (1-2, 3-5). It was the Wildcats’ first win in the Northeast 1B South division.

Indians annex second straight NEA volleyball crown

October 26, 2011

The Indians, top-ranked in the latest State 1A Coaches’ Poll, were unbeaten in league play this season and lost only one game during the NEA campaign (at Freeman).

Kettle looks for big upset

October 26, 2011

Kettle Falls High (5-3, 3-2) has already clinched a post-season berth, but there is nothing the Bulldogs would like more than to upset unbeaten and third-ranked Colfax (7-0, 5-0) in the Northeast 2B football finale for both teams Friday night in Kettle Falls. Game time is 7 p.m. Kettle Falls is coming off an easy 44-13 dismantling of Northeast 2B cellar-dweller Liberty (1-7, 0-5) last Friday night at Spangle. Colfax ran to a 26-0 lead over Springdale before easing off the throttle in a 58-36 road win last Friday. Fourth seed Kettle’s win at Liberty clinched a no.

Regional at Plantes Ferry Park next for Chewelah c-c

October 26, 2011

The Chewelah cross-country teams wrapped up their 2011 regular season with a dual meet against Freeman last Tuesday at Chewelah Golf and Country Club. Both races were close, but in the team scoring, Freeman edged the Cougars in both the boys and girls races.

October 19, 2011

Entering the final two weeks of their Northeast A League football schedule, Chewelah is in the league playoff picture after a victory over the Lakeside Eagles on Friday night.
The Cougars' defense had their best performance of the season, holding the Eagles to 207 yards total offense and stopping three Lakeside scoring threats inside the five-yard-line to preserve the 13-6 win at Nine Mile Falls.
“It was a good win for us on the road,” coach Jim Fisk said. “We’ll take it.”

Kettle defense comes up big against Springdale

October 19, 2011

The Kettle Falls High defense, run over one week earlier in a loss to Lind-Ritzville/Sprague, came up big against Mary Walker (Springdale) last Friday night in a 34-6 Northeast 2B football road win. Kettle Falls (4-3, 2-2) returned two first half interceptions for touchdowns and added a second half punt block return for another score. Kettle Falls put up 21 first quarter points on the Chargers (1-6, 1-4) and the first 34 of the game. “We came out firing on all cylinders on offense and our defense really stepped up and played well,” Corvino said of a must win.
