Junior hoopsters all ready to roll

More coaches hopefully will translate into more polish for the Muskie junior girls' basketball team this season.

“With three coaches, we can break the practices down into smaller groups,” Petsnick explained.

Winnipeg resident Brenda Osborne and the rest of her walking group made their way through Fort Frances over the weekend in an effort to raise awareness about murdered and missing indigenous people in Canada, including her own daughter, Claudette, who has been missing since 2008.

Coaching tips

Just like he used to do for the Muskie boys' hockey team, Shane Bliss shared some secrets of the game to the Atom-aged players assembled before him at the Ice For Kids Arena during the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association's Development Week camp last week.
