Ontario nabs silver

Amber Jourdain and Alexis Perreault had to declare something a little extra in their luggage for the trip home from Nova Scotia.
The Couchiching duo were part of the silver medal-winning squad from Team Ontario, which fell 3-2 to Saskatchewan on Saturday in the final of the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships in Halifax.
Neither local player saw action in the final.

Lakers fall short to Soo in final

Bujold in ‘must-win’

It’s down to last-chance time for Aaron Bujold.
The Muskie—competing in the boys’ singles division—dropped his first two matches at the OFSAA badminton championships yesterday in Markham.

Team Ontario wins division

Team Ontario is rolling—and Amber Jourdain and Alexis Perreault are hoping to get back in on the fun.
The Couchiching duo were not in the lineup for yesterday’s 4-0 win over B.C. in Ontario’s final round-robin game at the 2015 National Aboriginal Hockey Championships in Bedford, N.S.
With the win, second-ranked Ontario (3-0) clinched first place in Division II.

They have until tonight to figure out how to avoid losing out on the chance to play tomorrow.

Area always captured Laettner’s fancy

Christian Laettner took the recommendation of a training staff employee from his first professional team more than 20 years ago—and has never regretted it.

Muskie squads clip Owls’ wings

It looks like all systems go and they’ve barely left the starting gate.
The Muskie boys’ soccer team looked every bit the four-time defending NorWOSSA champion it is in blanking the Rainy River Owls 6-0 in an exhibition scrimmage here Monday.
“For an opening game, things looked pretty good from front to back and from young to old,” said Muskie head coach Shane Beckett.
