Thanks to a three-goal perfor- mance by Jade McCauley and two scores each from Chae Brown and Jaisa Holland the Cheney girls' soccer team can now put one in the "W" category, getting their first win of the season by knocking off visit- ing Lakeside 7-3 last Tuesday. And while new head coach Nels Radtke isn't keen on moral victories, he felt the Lady Hawks played one of their better games so far in Fridav's 4-1 home loss to Lewis and Clark. Holland was involved in five of Cheney's seven scores against the Eagles of the Northeast A League Tuesday. She and Brown hooked up on the Lady Hawks' first two goals, both by Brown, in the ninth and 17th minutes. McCauley got into the action with the next three goals, a solo shot in the 22nd minute, one in the 26th minute off Holland's Lakeside finally scored three minutes into the second half before Holland found the net with goals in the 44th minute, assist from Sierra Dixon, and in the 53rd mintite, assist by Brown. Lakeside added goals in the 63rd and 64th minutes. Cheney out shot the Eagles 13-12 .with goalkeeper Montana Andrews making nine saves. "It was nice to get the win," Radtke said. "Once we get that first win, we get the experience from it, the excitement from it and build on it from there." But while the win was good, Radtke was a little worried how the team finished. It was a tale of two halves, the first won by Cheney but the second going to the Eagles, 3-2. Radtke thinks it might be a mindset issue since he beheves his team is in pretty good physical shape early in the season. 4A Greater Spokane League. LC took a 1-0 lead into the half when Cheney failed to clear a ball inside the 18-yard box in the 21st minute, allowing freshman Haidyn Bulen to send a shot into the net. MacKenzie Flynn crossed a shot from left to right just outside the 6-yard box past an outstretched Andrews to make it 2-0 in the 47th minute. Cheney answered four minutes later, with Holland passing to Brown who floated a 12-yard shot into the left part of the goal to make it 2-1. LC regained their two-point lead on a Cheney own goal in the 57th minute, a shot Andrews stopped and appeared to control but theofficials ruled it had just crossed the goal line. The Tigers added some insurance in the 74th Blackhawks turn in good times at Highlander By JOHN McCALLUM Editor After weeks of lonely road work Cheney cross country teams finally got to test them- selves against runners wearing different colored jerseys at last Saturday's 26-team Highlander Invitational at Shadle Park High School. The Blackhawks' boys com- peted against runners in their own class standing, while the girls ran in three races: freshmen, a combined race for schools with under 600 enrollment and JV squads from larger schools and finally the varsity race. Junior Kyle Lerch posted the fastest time for the Cheney boys, sixth in the junior race with a time of 13 minutes, 30 seconds on th e re latyely fla t but sun-baked Js,miie Course. Head coach Jay "{ii :sai:d it Was s011d per- formance, noting Lerch turned in a fairly fast 5:07 mark at the first mile, eventually finishing 47 seconds behind race winner Nicholas Hauger from Shadle. Nick Steele was 14th overall in the junior boys race and had Photo by John McCallum Cheney senior Corey Klotz-Brooks stays close to the head of the pack in the Highlander Invitational se- nior boys race. the team's fourth fastest mark with a time of 14 minutes. Kameron Galm had the high- est finish for the Cheney boys, fourth in the sophomore race with the team's second-fastest time at 13:40. Corey Klotz-Brooks posted the third fastest time for the Black- hawks, finishing 11th overall .in the senior boys race in 13:41, well back of Mead's Andrew Gardner who annihilated the field with a time of 12:16, 31 seconds ahead of the next highest finisher. To- gether with Matt Duray and Jesse Hallstrom, both of whom turned in times of 14:15 for fifth and sixth team marks, Klotz-Brooks helped lead Cheney to a third-place over- all team finish. Derek Denenny turned in a time of 14:27 in the sophomore boys race to round out the Blackhawk boys' top seven. Martin noted that sophomore Steaven Zachman also had a good performance, finishing 14th overall in 14:53. Senior Sanne Holland led the Cheney girls" varsity team, nmning neck-and-neck with Richland's Lindsey Bradley and Kamiakin's Megan Beauchene before the 'Tri-Cities duo pulled away late to duel for the varsity individual title, won by Bradley with a time of 14:51 Holland was third with a time of 15:02. Mariah Brenton was second for the Blackhawks with a time of 16:55, with Anika Kuula third in 17:44, Johanna Sherman fourth in 17:48 and sophomore Mattie McNair the fifth scorer with a time of 18:58. "It was a good effort," Martin said of both Blackhawks squads Highlander performances. "I'm proud of the effort. That's what we're really looking for in that first race." Cheney continues its invita- tional schedule this Saturday, tak- ing part in the Mead Invitational at Mead High School in north Spokane. Whereas the Highlander course was 2.5 miles, the Mead course is the standard 3.1 mile, 5,000 meters the Blackhawks will run during the regular season, and should give them an indication of where their race conditioning is early on. John McCallum can be reached at Andrews making six saves. Radtke felt the Lady Hawks play against LC was a much better perfor- mance than their season-opening 7-1 loss to Ferris, adding the team is a bit of "a puzzle" right now in trying to put the pieces together for success. The Lady Hawks will have to put everything together and con- tlnue to improve against opponents who count now, opening the Great Northern League schedule this. week with a pair of road games. Cheney travels to Deer Park Tuesday to face the Stags, 1-0 after a 4-3 win over Riverside, and then to Colville Thursday, facing an Indians team starts 0-1 following an 8-2 loss to Idaho 3A Lakeland. Radtke said he's excited to get league underway finally. Right now he's more focused on the Lady Hawks play than he is on coming league opponents. "That needs to be our major con- cern," Radtke said. "Then in games we can make some changes. I think we can do some special things this season."

CHS football continued from page 1 thing, this time sprinting 70 yards for the score that held up, giving Cheney a 42-0 halftime lead. The Blackhawks added a 12-yard TD run by Tom Trude in the third quarter and a 9-yard run by Austin Kline in the fourth for the game's final points under a run- ning clock. Williams was pleased with his team's performance, noting blow- out games such as last Friday can be hard to play and coach, and can result in injuries if players don't p!ay hard. But after the East Val- ley (Yakiina) heartbreaker, it was good to get the win if just for the mental aspect. The Blackhawks (1-1) face a stern test this Friday, traveling to Rathdrum, Idaho to take on 4A classification Lakeland (0-2), 38-14 losers last week at East Vallev. It's the home opener for the Hawks, who lost in the first round of the playoffs last year to Middleton, and the third time the two schools have met in the past four years. In 2008 Cheney won at home 30-10 and in 2009 opened a 27-7 lead on the road before Lake- land rallied for a 34-33 win. Williams said the Hawks "play fast" on offense and employ a lot of misdirection out of their Wing-T set. Defensively they like to stunt and crash players in and out of the line of scrimmage, somewhat akin to the "Desert Swarm" defense of the 1991-94 Arizona Wildcats. Whatever they run, Williams said it's a team that plays hard from whistle to whistle. "We'd better be ready to play four quarters," he said. "It'll be a stiff test."

Individually Gill and junior outside hitter Ashley Seiler led the Lady Hawks offensively with .240 and .247 hitting per- centages for the tournament. Gill had her best effort against Kamiah, notching nine kills in 14 attempts against one error for a .571 percentage while Seiler led the Lady Hawks in their near upset of LC with seven kills in 15 attempts and no errors for a .466 percentage. Overall Cheney had 113 kills fora .183 percentage, a figure that could have been higher Lowe said if you toss out the Priest River match. Cheney served well with 36 aces total and senior Kendall Case leading the team cessful at times in serving well enough to push their opponents out of their offensive rhythm, but also sometimes served to the wrong people; such as a team's best passer, when there were other options. Case led Cheney in setting with 81 assists, with junior setter Kinsey Pease having 15. Lowe said the discrepancy was because early in the tournament they used a two-setter formation, a 6-2, while later they went with one in a 5-1, moving Pease to a hitter slot. Cheney had seven solo blocks and 12 assisted blocks for the tournament and added 111 digs defensively, with Seiler leading with 28 and Pease adding 20 Lowe said the Lady Hawks continued to grow in many areas at the jamboree, improving in specific parts of their game that they focused on in competition. Right now the team is working on transitioning better from offense to defense. "We keep showing improve- ments, and keep working on parts of our game," Lowe said. "We're never going to stop grow- ing." Cheney turns its attention to the Great Northern League with its first two league matches this week, Tuesday on the road at Deer Park (1-0) and Thursday at Colville in the Indians' season .opener. Colville also competed Saturday at Lakeland, going un- beaten in pool play and downing Idaho 5A Lake City to win the overall tournament title.
