Muskie badminton players a ‘smash’ at NorWOSSA qualifier

Coming off an undefeated record at last week’s qualifier, Muskie Katie Vittie is looking to continue that hot streak at the NorWOSSA badminton tournament today in Kenora.

Breezing through the senior girls’ singles division in Ignace with a 7-0 mark, Vittie admitted she has her sights on a much bigger tournament—the all-Ontarios later this month in Timmins.

Loss ‘bitter disappointment’ for Dolyny

When Rustyn Dolyny first appeared in a Michigan State Spartan uniform last season, the excitement of playing U.S. college hockey translated into a successful inaugural year—one which saw him in the running for the CCHA’s rookie-of-the-year honours.

And while he fell just short of that coveted individual accomplishment, his team also fell short of its goal to win a national title.

Patrow lifts way to another national title

Dean Patrow of Fort Frances once again has qualified for the world drug-free powerlifting championships in Omaha, Neb. after winning another national title in Moose Jaw, Sask. in March.

Patrow, 43, continued his dominance in the Superweight division (over 319 pounds) of the Masters division (over age 40), and narrowly missed capturing the world record while squatting 693 pounds.

Badminton teams set sights on NorWOSSA

As the Muskie badminton teams prepare for the NorWOSSA qualifier tomorrow in Ignace, they do so knowing they have an excellent chance of advancing to the playoffs later this month.

That’s because several Muskies put in strong performances at an exhibition last month in Sioux Lookout, and the top three placings in each division will move on from tomorrow’s qualifier.
