Golf tourney

Lawrence Norwegian made solid contact with the ball as he teed off on the second hole during the Fort Frances Lakers' annual golf tournament hosted by Heron Landing on Saturday. The team of Kaleb Fernandez, Virginia Big George, Harold Big George, and Eagle Copenace wound up as the winners of this year's tourney. All proceeds went towards supporting the Lakers' hockey team.

'I got it!'

Christine Denby, right, and her Shade teammate both had their eye on a pop fly near home plate during their squad's win over the Village People in the 'B' final of the annual Kingsley Downs/Gus Lindberg Memorial slo-pitch tournament on Sunday afternoon at the Devlin Ball Park.

Covering home plate

Red Gut Babes' catcher Kayla Windigo secured the ball in her glove as she got the forceout at home plate during her squad's 15-11 loss to the Fort Frances Angels in Rainy River District Women's Fastball League action on Monday night at the St. Francis Sports Field.

Throwing to first

Fort Frances Angels' pitcher Rylee Redford fielded a ground ball and made the throw to first to record the out during the first inning of her team's 15-11 win over the Red Gut Babes in Rainy River District Women's Fastball League action last night at the St. Francis Sports Field. Redford garnered the pitching win and also homered twice to pace the Angels to their fourth win of the season.

Don't touch me!

Eric Shute of the Village People was a little too adventurous on the basepaths and ran right into the tag of the Shade's third baseman during his squad's loss in the 'B' final of the annual Kingsley Downs/Gus Lindberg Memorial slo-pitch tournament on Sunday afternoon at the Devlin Ball Park.

Tennis lesson

Al Christiansen demonstrated various skills to the local youths on hand for a junior tennis introductory clinic yesterday morning at the Multi-Use Tennis Courts here.

Steph Legree of the Couchiching Raiders was able to beat the throw to home to score a run during the first inning of her team's 10-8 win over the Fort Frances Her-icanes in Rainy River District Women's Fastball League action on Monday night at VanJura. The Raiders are sitting with a league-best 11-1 record heading into tonight's game.
