Spiker squads looking to crown strong seasons with league titles

The Muskie junior and senior girls' volleyball teams both have had impressive seasons so far.

What better way is there to cap an already successful year than by adding a championship title?

That's what is at stake this Friday at the NorWOSSA playoffs in Dryden, as both teams earned byes to their respective finals after finishing in first place during regular-season play.

Puck in air

Muskie forward Jon Busch fired home Fort High's 11th goal of the game during the third period of Saturday night's 17-2 rout of the Red Lake Rams at the Ice For Kids Arena. The black-and-gold will conclude their regular season with back-to-back games in Red Lake this Friday and Saturday before capping play Sunday against the host Sioux Lookout Warriors.

Muskie boys tea

Muskie Cole Magill poured some coffee for those on hand for the team's annual tea and bake sale Saturday afternoon in the Fort High cafeteria. Admission to the event was $5, which included tea, coffee, sandwiches, and array of desserts. There also were bake and penny tables, along with a Muskie “photo booth.”

Muskie boys clinch first

The Muskie boys' hockey team served their cake and ate it, too.

Just hours after hosting their annual tea and bake sale in the Fort High cafeteria, the black-and-gold (10-1) closed out their regular-season home schedule with a 17-2 rout of the Red Lake Rams on Saturday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Taking shot

Monica Walsh of the Dryden B&B Blazers looked to blast a shot on the Fort Frances PeeWee Venom's net during her team's 3-2 loss in Sunday's gold-medal game of the Fort Frances Girls'/Women's Hockey Association's PeeWee and Bantam Showcase at the Ice For Kids Arena. The Venom won all three of their games over the weekend while the Fort Frances Thunderbolts went winless in theirs.
