Gosman places second at bike race

Greg Gosman took advantage of some fast track conditions at the Norba Nationals bike race in Red Wing, Mn. on Saturday, placing second overall in the 19-24 age group in the beginner division.

Gosman, 22, of Fort Frances, was up against more than 250 riders in the beginner division, including 30 in his own age group, at the Welch Village track (about 90 minutes south of Minneapolis).

The one that got away

For the second time in as many weeks, the Muskie boys’ soccer team was plagued with the penalty-kick bug late in the game. Only this time it eventually cost them NorWOSSA gold.

Leading 1-0 on a Steve Keesic goal just two minutes into the game on an indirect kick from about 20 yards out, the Muskies looked to be well on their way to the NWOSSAA championship in Thunder Bay.

Practice makes perfect:

With the weight of both teams on her shoulders, Sarah Noonan calmly banged home a shot in the third round of penalty kicks to give the Muskies a 1-0 win over the Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA final here last Thursday evening.

The victory also propelled the black-and-gold into the NWOSSAA playoffs this Saturday at the home of the North Shore of Superior champs.

Muskie spring football camp wraps up

With the Muskie spring football camp wrapping up tonight at Westfort, the coaches have come away feeling the team will be much younger—and less experienced—than in past seasons.

But even though several players in key positions will be gone due to graduation, head coach Bob Swing was impressed by the number of players who turned out for the spring camp.
