Chewelah comeback earns big win over hard-luck Kettle Falls

October 10, 2013

Kettle can’t
hold late lead

The Chewelah Cougars broke into the win column last Friday night with a come from behind 13-12 victory over Northeast A League rival, Kettle Falls.
While the Cougars didn’t play their best game, they did enough on both sides of the ball to earn their first win of the season. That was good enough for head coach Jim Fisk, whose mostly inexperienced team has struggled this fall.
“I would have liked to see us play better, but I can’t complain,” Fisk said. “Offensively, we did what we had to do--that’s what counts.”

Solid recruiting
class for Keating

Colville High senior Matt Hubbard has made an oral commitment to play for coach Kerry Keating’s Santa Clara Broncos.
The 6-9 Hubbard, an All-Great Northern League and Northeast A League pick his first three years at CHS and the team’s leading scorer and rebounder all three seasons, says he’s excited to be heading to the West Coast Conference school.
“It feels so good to have gotten through the whole recruiting process,” one of the top prep players in the Northwest said last week. “It was pretty stressful toward the end of it.”

Riverside visits
in NEA opener

Host Tonasket was able to make an early 13-0 lead stand up against Kettle Falls in a 13-7 non-league win in Okanogan County last Friday night.
For KFHS, the offense is still a work in progress. But head coach Curtis Corvino liked what he saw in the second half against Tonasket.
“I thought we kind of had Tonasket on their heels at the end,” Kettle Falls head coach Curtis Corvino said of a spirited second half effort. “We just didn’t have enough time.”

Colville buries Chewelah

Unbeaten T-lake
up next on Friday

In one of the most lopsided outcomes in the annual Highway 395 cross-the-valley rivalry between Colville and Chewelah, the Indians pushed down the throttle and never let up on Friday the 13th, blasting host Chewelah 42-0.
After one of the poorest rushing performances in the recent history of the program one week earlier against unbeaten Freeman, the Indians cranked up their normally dependable ground game against a Chewelah team that lost 17 seniors from last season’s Northeast A League championship bunch.

Freeman holds off Colville

Chewelah next

Northeast A League pre-season favorite Freeman held off Colville 14-7 last Friday night in the non-league season-opener for both teams.
Despite struggling on offense and putting up some of the lowest rushing totals in many years, the Indians came close to pulling this one out or getting it into overtime in the game’s final seconds.
But the late comeback ended inside the final minute of play when Freeman recovered a fumble after a CHS pass completion at the Indians’ 40-yard-line.

Colville up next
in 395 rivalry

The Chewelah Cougars kicked off their football season Friday night on the road at Deer Park. The young Cougars were in the game early on, but were eventually overpowered by the bigger, more experienced Stags, 31-7.
The Cougars went into the game with only four starters returning from last year’s team (Chewelah lost 17 seniors—12 of them starters off last season’s Northeast A League championship team).

Indians will definitely be better

Colville opens with rival Freeman

Colville High returns more players than anybody in the Great Northern League this fall. The Indians, who struggled to a 3-7, 1-5 record with a group long on inexperience last fall, look to rebound and make things interesting in the rigorous GNL this fall.
Colville ended a frustrating 2012 season with an eye-opening 26-20 win in the mud over Pullman. That upset cost the ‘Hounds an undisputed GNL championship and instilled some confidence in the Indians.
There is no reason not to continue where CHS left off against Pullman last November.

New coach & some veteran senior talent

There is some serious understatement in play to say that there are a few notable changes in the Colville High School volleyball program this fall.
For one thing, Missy Bennett, who spent 27 years coaching and is a member of the Washington Coaches’ Hall of Fame, is no longer on the sidelines. Bennett is still teaching at CHS, but athletic director Kelly Carr recently hired veteran Kennewick School District coach Ron Schuh to replace one of the Colville School District’s coaching icons (see related story).

Veteran coach moves from Tri-Cities

Nearly one year after longtime Colville High volleyball coach Missy Bennett announced her resignation after arguably the most successful career ever turned in by a CHS coach, athletic director Kelly Carr named Ron Schuh of Kennewick to replace her.
The 54-year-old Schuh, who worked as a physical education teacher at Park Middle School in Kennewick prior to being named to succeed Bennett, is excited about the opportunity.

CHS ‘Midnight Mile’ draws good turnout

Cross country
season underway

Let the wind blow and the thunder roll. Sunday evening’s squall through the Colville Valley managed to knock out power and do a fair amount of property damage, but wasn’t able to dampen the Colville High School cross country team’s appointed 2013 season kick-off.
While much of the Valley languished in the dark after a strong thunderstorm knocked out large portions of the local power grid, a swift response by local AVISTA crews had the metered gold restored to CHS well before the Indians’ annual midnight appointment with their new season.
