KF Robotics team places 56th in division

April 29, 2015

The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind for the Canine Crusaders Kettle Falls Robotics Team 4890, to say the least. After qualifying for the National Championship in St. Louis, Missouri, students scrambled to raise money for the trip, which included dismantling and packing their robot to be shipped halfway across the country.
The community responded to requests for help, donating money and resources to fly 16 of the students to the competition and compete with 600 other teams from around the world.

Area lakes restocked for fishing season

April 22, 2015

A steady thrashing sound comes from the back of the 1,000 gallon Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) tanker truck as Jake Wolfe, Fish Hatchery Specialist, opens the hatch at the top.
Wolfe peers in at the some 1,700 eight-inch Rainbow trout, also referred to as “Catchables.” The fish are about to be released into Waitts Lake outside of Valley as part of the WDFW’s annual restocking of Tri-County lakes in anticipation of the 2015 Washington state fishing season (starts April 25).

Colville High soccer team rolls into first place

April 21, 2015

Indians hold
off Lakeside

A quick, aggressive Colville High soccer team moved into first place in the Northeast A League last Thursday with a wildly entertaining 4-3 win on the home pitch over perennial league power Lakeside.
Colville (4-0 NEA, 6-1 overall) started the week with a 7-1 win at Deer Park (Tuesday). In that mismatch, Alberto Cisneros continued to impress with three goals and an assist for the Tribe. League scoring leader Chris Benson added two goals and a pair of assists for a high-powered offense.

Big week on the road for Chewelah

JHS pummeled
by Lakeside

The Jenkins High softball team got back into action after Spring Break and picked up their first Northeast A League win of the season, a 12-3 romp over Medical Lake last week. But the Cougars were swept by hard-hitting Lakeside in a Saturday doubleheader, 9-1 and 16-1.
At the midpoint of the season, JHS is 1-4 in the NEA, and seems poised to make some movement up the league standings. Head coach Tom Skok sees a lot of positives out on the diamond.

Kettle Falls in the mix for the NE-2B post-season

April 21, 2015

Bulldogs go 1-3
during the week

Heading down the homestretch in the Northeast 2B baseball race, Kettle Falls High (8-6) is still very much in the mix for a District 7 2B playoff berth. The District playoffs begin May 5.
KFHS, 1-3 last week after dropping a doubleheader to NE 2B league leader Colfax (11-0) and splitting last Saturday at Davenport, are currently in fourth place behind Colfax, Wilbur-Creston and Davenport. Northwest Christian and Kettle Falls are both tied in fifth place, but the Bulldogs beat the Crusaders in runs scored (tie-breaker).

Top six move on

Lady Bulldogs in thick of NE 2B playoff picture

April 21, 2015

Liberty, S-dale
on tap this week

Kettle Falls High (8-6, 8-4) is looking for a strong regular season finish in the Northeast 2B fast-pitch softball circuit.
Coming off a week where the Lady Bulldogs went 1-3, the strong finish is imperative.
KFHS was routed by one of the strongest 2B softball programs (every Colfax program?) around in Colfax. The Bulldogs of the Palouse downed Kettle Falls 15-1 (five innings) and 9-0.
On Saturday at Davenport, Kettle split with the Gorillas, losing the opener 14-0 and rebounding for an 11-4 second game win.
