TOUGH TASK AHEAD: Loaded district tournament the perfect challenge for talented Cougars…
Chewelah is known for many things: great scenery, the ski hill, golf course, farming, logging, hunting and softball.
Yes, softball, while most people struggle to pronounce the name of the town, the navy blue unis of the Cougars are becoming a common sight at blistering hot state tournaments in the Columbia Basin.
With two straight fifth place finishes at the 1A state softball tournament, the Cougars have one of the best pedigrees out of any Chewelah sports program heading into the 2Bs. This year has been another successful campaign with the Cougars racking up a 13-7 record overall and a 10-2 record against 2B squads.
