Tymkin 'Star'-struck at NHL camp

The closest Cole Tymkin ever came to seeing Tyler Seguin before last week was on “Hockey Night in Canada.”

So it was a surreal experience for the teenaged Tymkin, a Rainy River native, to be skating on the same ice surface at the same time as one of the NHL's best players during his stint at the Dallas Stars' main training camp in Frisco, Tex.

Carrying ball

Muskie running back Sekina Scheibler (25) forcefully cleared West Kildonan defensive back Justin Petrishen out of the way as part of his 253-yard rushing day in Fort High's 14-13 loss to the visiting Wolverines on Friday.

Peeking around

Jeff Venzon of the Fort Frances Lakers, centre, wasn't asking permission to set up shop in front of Thief River Falls Norskies' goalie Brock Lefebvre despite the presence of defenceman Chris Pedersen during the first period of the Lakers' 5-4 shootout loss here Friday night in their SIJHL season-opener. See story on page 2.

Eyeing putt

Muskie golfer Cole Kowalski kept tabs on his putt attempt on the green at No. 2 at Kitchen Creek earlier today. Kowalski and the rest of the seven-man Muskie team were participating in the NorWOSSA golf season-finale, with the top three teams and top five non-affiliated individuals in the standings after today moving on to the NWOSSAA finals Oct. 3 in Thunder Bay.

Lakers go winless in pre-season

Any panic buttons in Wayne Strachan's office remain unpushed at the present time.

The head coach and general manager of the Fort Frances Lakers wasn't about to get all worked up over an 0-3-0-1 record in the SIJHL pre-season, which ended with the Lakers dropping both ends of a home-and-home series against the English River Miners over the weekend.

Setting up play

The rest of Hayden Haw's teammates on the Rainy River Owls anxiously anticipated his oncoming set during the first set of the Owls' 3-0 loss to the visiting St. Thomas Aquinas Saints in NorWOSSA junior boys' volleyball action Monday.

Stuffing defence

Katelyn Brown of the Rainy River Owls (25) wasn't about to give Alyssa Turcotte of the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints an open look at the basket during the visitors' 33-11 victory in NorWOSSA 'A' junior girls' basketball action Monday afternoon at RRHS. See story on C4.
