It was quite the ride for Hailey Beaudry's Northern Ontario rink during the Canadian Junior Curling Championships that ran last week in Shawinigan, Que.

Senior Muskie Cole Kowalski looked to drive his way to the hoop during Fort High's 78-69 loss to the visiting Dryden Eagles in NorWOSSA action Monday afternoon. Kowalski poured in 14 points for the black-and-gold but it wasn't enough as they saw their league record fall to 2-3. The junior squad had much better success, though, routing the Eagles 61-15 to improve to 4-1 in league play.

The Lakehead University men's basketball team announced earlier this month that Woodland would be joining its staff as an assistant coach.
Joining Woodland on head coach Ryan Thomson's staff will be Matt Erdman, also as an assistant, and Jamie Searle, who will be in charge of player development.
