The Legion baseball season is underway and Colville has two entries in the annual summer league.

Colville Legion AA is made up of high school age players, who are active in the Colville High School baseball program. The team has a couple of incoming seniors, but is mostly made up of incoming juniors and sophomores and is still learning on a daily basis on the field.

Colville has a full schedule this week, with home games scheduled against Lewis and Clark on Tuesday and Shadle Park on Wednesday, both scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. at Rotary Field. This weekend they will play in the River City Shootout in Spokane, a round robin tournament with North Central, West Valley, Rogers, and Central Valley.

With four games over the weekend and home games scheduled for Monday against Gonzaga Prep and Tuesday against Riverside, Colville will have a chance to test the depth of their pitching staff said coach Sjordal, “We will get a lot of guys throwing in a short amount of time.”

The Colville A legion team is built around the CJHS 7th and 8th grade teams, and will be looking to add to their experience, and prepare themselves for the next level of baseball.

Colville A is seven games into their season and last week they split their four games, losing a doubleheader to West Kootenay (Trail, B.C.) and sweeping one from Lewis and Clark, 7-5 and 13-9. This week they have games scheduled on Monday against Selkirk at 5 p.m., and Thursday against Chewelah at 5:30 p.m.
