Inchelium forfeits game, continues district play Saturday

— Postseason girls high school basketball continues for the Inchelium, but ended for the Curlew girls today.

Inchelium, with only four girls eligible to play – a fifth is injured - forfeited its opening district game to Wilbur-Creston on Wednesday.

An initial decision was made Wednesday for Curlew to take Inchelium’s place and finish out the District 7 1B tournament so there would be no forfeits, Curlew Athletic Director Charlie Groth said.

But that decision was halted Thursday morning, with Inchelium girls keeping the No. 4 seed from the north.

The Hornets are scheduled to take on Wellpinit in a loser-out game at 2 p.m. Saturday at Deer Park High School, 800 S. Weber Road.

The tournament is taking place in two gyms (DP1 and DP2).

Saturday games:


  • Cusick vs. Selkirk, 2 p.m. DP2
  • Republic vs. Curlew, 3:45 p.m. DP2
  • Wellpinit vs. Valley Christian 2 p.m. DP1
