Cougs swing their way to state


Chewelah lost just one game in the Legion Single A District Tournament, a 4-3 setback to Whitman County in the championship game on Tuesday, and punched their ticket to the state tournament next weekend in Spokane.

On Monday, the eight surviving tournament teams met at Mead to determine which two would, in the end, play in the championship game. For the Chewelah Cougars, their two encounters were a pair of opposites.

Johnny Larson and Pearson Grooms combined to throw a no-hitter in the first game as the Cougars destroyed Mead 14-0 in a five-inning shutout. Click here for the full story.
