Celebratory hug

The Renegades are off to the finals in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League after they defeated the Couchiching Lady Raiders last night in the bottom of the seventh inning 8-7. The women ran out for a celebratory hug as the winning run crossed home plate.

Hot pursuit

In a highly contested battle, Cameron Lidkea of CJ Contracting, left, tried to recover on defence and regain possession as he chased down Lucas Koomans of Centra Pipelines. The tight defensive play paid off for CJ Contracting as the men went on to earn their second straight Borderland league championship with a 1-0 score on Tuesday night.

Newman singing

Lead vocalist Brent Newman from “Rough Cut Pine” alternated between singing and playing his harmonica during one of the band's original pieces last Thursday evening at the Rainy Lake Square. The audience was swept away and entranced by many of the appealing melodies played by the folk band during the Rainy Lake Squares concert series.
