A lack of communication ultimately became their undoing, but the Muskie senior girls' volleyball team still put in a great effort over the weekend and came away with the silver medal at the annual St. Patrick Volleyball Festival in Thunder Bay.

The Rainy River Owls' junior girls' volleyball team has been nothing short of superb this season and may just be peaking at the right time.
Rainy River improved to a league-best 5-0 as they won both of their matches in NorWOSSA 'A' play last week against the host Red Lake Rams and St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora).
The Muskie boys', girls' and mixed curling teams headed into the NorWOSSA championships in Kenora on Sunday and Monday to kick butt and chew bubblegum—and they were all out of bubblegum.
Both the boys' and girls' rinks claimed NorWOSSA gold while the mixed team snared silver as they all represented Fort Frances with pride.
The Muskie boys' hockey team has made a habit of getting out to slow starts in games.
Fortunately for them, they've been able to overcome that and fight back to win more often than not so far this season.
After a rough month of January, the tides appear to be turning for the Fort Frances Lakers.
The Lakers compiled a 2-1-1 record in four games last week, which was capped off by home-and-home split against the Thief River Falls Norskies over the weekend where they claimed three of a possible four points.
With the NorWOSSA playoffs fast approaching, every game is crucial from here on out for the Muskie girls' hockey team.
