CV’s Rehkow chooses Idaho
Central Valley kicking standout Austin Rehkow is taking his foot to the University of Idaho.
Rehkow made his decision late Tuesday night but didn’t contact Idaho until Wednesday morning. He visited the Moscow school over the weekend.
He also had an offer from Eastern Washington and a preferred walk-on offer from Oregon.
Rehkow’s stock went up enormously last fall when he kicked a 67-yard field goal. Just a couple days earlier, EWU had offered a partial scholarship.
EWU coach Beau Baldwin eventually increased the offer to a full scholarship. Newly hired Idaho coach Paul Petrino started recruiting Rehkow after he was hired.
“They recruited me as a punter but I’ll have an opportunity to challenge for placekicking, too,” Rehkow said.
NIC volleyball coach resigns
North Idaho College volleyball coach Kandice Gregorak has resigned after guiding the Cardinals to 47 wins and two top-10 finishes at the NJCAA tournament in two seasons.
Gregorak stepped down for family reasons. Her husband, Ty, is the defensive coordinator at the University of Montana. They were married last summer.
Deferred sentence given
A suspended University of Montana football player from Spokane has been given an 18-month deferred sentence after pleading guilty in December to a drug possession charge.
Missoula’s KECI-TV reported 20-year-old offensive tackle Trevor Poole, a Ferris graduate, was sentenced Tuesday in District Court.
Poole was arrested in October after buying two “molly” pills, a drug similar to Ecstasy, and was suspended from the team indefinitely.
