Colville baseball team looks for a little Mojo

April 9, 2013

It has been a tough stretch for the Colville High baseball team. The Indians (2-7) have lost six straight in the tough Great Northern League and head into the post-Spring Break portion of their schedule looking for a little Mojo and some good fortune.
“The most important thing right now is that our team believes that we’re going to start winning soon,” CHS head coach Boo Morrison said of his team’s rough stretch. “Baseball is a crazy game. We’re not getting any balls to bounce our way right now and we’re not catching any breaks.

CHS soccer team in the GNL mix so far

Indians may be the league surprise

Colville High (6-4) has been more than competitive to date in the rigorous Great Northern League 2A soccer race.
Yes, hindsight is always a 20/20 proposition, but just think where the Indians would be if they were situated where student enrollment numbers indicate that they should be—in the Northeast A League.
Like we said, hindsight and better accounting practices are always 20/20. Maybe the math will be more accurate on the next WIAA student count.
But we digress.

Indians down Rogers High

April 3, 2013

Colville idle until after the break

Colville High had no trouble last week beating Rogers High School 6-1 in Spokane.
The Indians swept the singles matches and won two of the three doubles matches.
In singles, Colville No. 1 Tessa Moore won in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0. CHS No. 2, freshman Darby Fox, also won in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0.
Sophomore No. 3 Taylor Little beat Sabrina Brown, 6-2, 6-1 and CHS No. 4 Cassidy Lindback beat Bidhya Bhandari, 6-1, 6-4.
In doubles, the Colville duo of Yelena Kalina/Alyssa Kinebaum downed Rogers’ Margaryta Iatchenko/Allie Hart, 6-1, 6-2.

Colville downs Pullman in GNL soccer action

April 3, 2013

Colville High (4-2) pulled off something the boy’s soccer program hasn’t been able to accomplish in recent memory—or ever. Beat Pullman on the pitch.
The Indians forged a 3-0 first half lead in the home match against the Greyhounds on goals by Filipp Susin (first minute), on an assist from Carl Johnston; Chris Benson at the 34-minute mark and Susin again three-minutes later (on an assist from Kris Griessmann).

Colville splits a pair of boy’s soccer match-ups

March 20, 2013

A busy week on tap

Colville High (1-1) split a pair of high school soccer matches last week to get the 2013 boy’s soccer season underway.
Back on March 12, Colville downed new Northeast A League member Medical Lake 4-2. On Thursday, another very good Cheney High team dispatched the Indians 6-0 on the Colville pitch. That match was the Great Northern League opener for both schools.
THIS WEEK
Colville will travel to Deer Park on Tuesday to face the Stags in a GNL match-up (4 p.m. start).

Holte leads Indians at West Valley

CHS freshman
opens a few eyes

A Colville High track and field team that includes more than a few new faces this spring got the 2013 high school season underway last Saturday at the 16-team West Valley Invitational.
CHS head coach Ty Brown said that going into the mid-March shakedown cruise the goal was to get a feel for what the Indians have this spring as they embark on a new two-year adventure back in the Great Northern League.

Spring sports get underway

March 20, 2013

Colville High hosted Chewelah and Northport in an impromptu three-team baseball Jamboree last Friday afternoon. The Jamboree, with each team playing three-inning “games,” served as a warm-up for this week’s schedule.
Colville opens the season on Tuesday at home when they host Great Northern League pre-season favorite East Valley in a single game (4 p.m. start) at Hofstetter Park. The Indians of head coach Boo Morrison travel to Deer Park for a GNL twin-bill with the Stags on Saturday (noon start). On Tuesday, March 26, CHS is at West Valley (4 p.m. start).

Different league—another run

March 13, 2013

Indians still have plenty of weapons

Colville High’s high-flying softball program will look a little different this spring for a couple of reasons.
First, the Indians are back in the familiar confines of the 2A Great Northern League for at least a two-year WIAA enrollment cycle. And second, assistant coach Jim Ebel has been elevated to head coach after Mandy Sumner, who guided the Indians to the cusp of a State 1A championship the past two seasons, resigned. Gone with Sumner is her husband, assistant coach Rob Sumner.

The return of the pole vault to CHS track & field

March 13, 2013

Indians also return to 2A GNL

By Colville High track and field coach Ty Brown’s recollection, it’s been several years since the Indians have been outside for pre-season practice sessions for day one.
Well, welcome to the relatively balmy spring of 2013 (so far).
Brown and the Indians will take it. It fact, CHS had glorious upper 50’s, bright sunny conditions for their annual Black and White inter-squad Jamboree last Saturday with Kettle Falls.

Despite move up to 2A, Indians should be in the mix

March 13, 2013

Like most Colville High School athletic teams, the move up from the Northeast A League to the rigors of the 2A Great Northern League likely didn’t do the Indians’ baseball team any favors this spring.
But you control what you can control. And the vagaries of student enrollment counts aren’t among things in the control of a coach.
You play who has been scheduled.
“It’s a new challenge,” CHS head coach Boo Morrison said of the move to 2A. “It’s a tough league.”
