Indians hope to get NEA games in this week

Talk about your liquid schedules in a mostly liquid early spring.Colville High, idle since splitting a season-opening doubleheader at Connell, hopes to get a soggy Hofstetter Field in playing shape this week.The Indians, who didn’t play a scheduled doubleheader last Saturday against Omak (either at home or in Okanogan County), were scheduled to play their Northeast A League baseball opener at Newport on Tuesday. But Newport’s field wasn’t in any better shape than Colville’s. Whether that one will be rescheduled is anybody’s guess at this juncture of a wet, cool early spring.Colville is scheduled to host field-less Freeman on Wednesday (4 p.m.).On Saturday, the Indians head to Riverside for a doubleheader that gets underway at 11 a.m.CHS will be idle over the Spring Break and resume lay on Saturday, April 7 when Chewelah is scheduled to visit for a doubleheader (11 a.m. start).
