Junior hoopsters improve to 3-0

A great start to the NorWOSSA season has the Muskie junior girls' basketball team soaring high.

The Muskies won both of their games last week as they improved to a league best 3-0.

Fort High rolled to a 53-33 romp over the Sioux Lookout Warriors in their home-opener last Tuesday and followed that up by downing the host Dryden Eagles 36-32 on Thursday.

Outnumbered

Heaven States, right, Grace Smith, and Joyce Wu all teamed up to outnumber their Sioux Lookout Warriors' opponent defensively during the first half of the Muskie girls' basketball team's 53-33 win in their home-opener last Tuesday afternoon at Fort High. Tatum Glowasky scored a team-high 18 points to pace the Muskies' offence in that one.

Spiking ball

Chandler Borger spiked the ball with great force past the attempted block of a pair of Sioux Lookout Warriors' opponents during the first set of the Muskie senior boys' volleyball team's 2-1 win in their NorWOSSA home-opener last Tuesday afternoon at Fort High.

Ready to bump

Kade Oster got ready to bump the ball back towards the Sioux Lookout Warriors' side of the court during the second set of the Muskie junior boys' volleyball team's 2-1 loss in their NorWOSSA home-opener last Tuesday afternoon at Fort High.

Shot on net

Stone Stelzl attempted to gather and shoot the puck on Dryden GM Ice Dogs' goalie Jacob Anthony during the first period of the Fort Frances Lakers' 4-3 loss on Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena. The Lakers then lost by that same score on Saturday night in Dryden to see their record fall to 2-2 on the young SIJHL season.

Running with ball

Muskie running back Sean Huziak tried to stiff-arm his Churchill Bulldogs' opponent as he made another big gain during the first quarter of Fort High's 66-19 romp in their Winnipeg High School Football League home-opener on Friday here. Huziak rambled for 261 yards on 12 carries while punching in three touchdowns to help the Muskies improve to 2-1 in the six-team Currie Division ('A').

Towering defence

Joanna Empey (35) and Simone Payne tried their best to keep their Sioux Lookout Warriors' opponent from advancing the ball up the court during the second half of the Muskie senior girls' basketball team's 49-1 rout in their NorWOSSA home-opener last Tuesday afternoon at Fort High. Alina Eldridge led all scorers with 11 points in the lopsided win.

RRWT weigh-in

Rick Thompson and Tracy Wahl stood up on the stage alongside RRWT emcee Vaughn Murray after their Day 2 haul of 12.77 pounds temporarily vaulted them into the lead and got them into the “hot seats” prior to the top five boat parade on Saturday afternoon. The duo settled for a third-place finish this year with a two-day total of 25.89 pounds.

Lakers' action

Ben Hoefler of the Fort Frances Lakers got tripped up by a diving Thief River Falls Norskies' defender while teammate Nick Hahkala looked on during their squad's 8-2 romp in the SIJHL season-opener for both teams on Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.
