Redskins fans knew with a 1 – 2 start to their season and losing to one of the worst teams, they could be in for a long season.

The CNCC Spartans were at it again this weekend, playing two big, athletic teams: the College of Southern Idaho and North Idaho College. In the past, these two Idaho teams would dominate the Spartans—but not this year. Although the Spartans lost, both the men’s and women’s programs will prove to be a threat come next semester.
The Lady Spartans had many mistakes this weekend that ultimately led to the losses.
“We didn’t get beat this weekend,” says sophomore guard Kelsey Samuelson. “We beat ourselves.”
In the past, CNCC would always lose against these two teams by at least a 40-point margin. This year was a different
As patients come and go out of CNCC’s Blakeslee Building, a cardboard box sits beside the receptionist window.
Giving his name to the dental hygiene student at the window, a kindly old farmer and his silver haired wife place a grocery bag of canned goods into the box before taking a seat in the waiting room.
