The Muskie hockey team will be holding its tryout camp for the 1997-98 season Aug. 18-23 at Memorial Arena—two months earlier than in past years.

Dave and Norm Lindsay had a good day Sunday but they failed to win the “triple crown.”

The Fort Frances Blue Jays brought home bronze medals after placing third in their division at the Ontario Special Olympics Summer Games in Chatham last weekend.
The local team finished with one win against a pair of losses in three games.
Tagg’s, who sit atop the local men’s soccer league, went into last weekend’s “Borderland Ball Blast ’97” tourney stressing defence.

After winning the past two Kitchen Creek Classic men’s titles, and fresh off earning honourary all-American honours at a U.S. national golf tournament in Tulsa, Okla., it’s quite clear Gareth Payne knows how to compete under pressure.
And now Payne will be looking to handle the pressure of winning his third-straight Classic here this weekend.
It doesn’t hurt to surf the ’Net when you’re looking for summer athletic camps. Just ask Karen Harris of Crozier., a six foot tall athlete of here, would certainly agree.
Harris, 17 and standing six feet tall, spent a fair portion of her summer attending a volleyball camp in Nebraska and a basketball one in Chicago.
The Muskie girls’ alumni soccer team took advantage of a strong first-half wind to score three times—all by forward Keira Main—in a 4-1 victory here Friday night over last season’s squad.
