Senior spikers see silver lining in loss

Although the Muskie senior girls’ volleyball team dropped its fourth-straight NorWOSSA match here last Thursday afternoon, the players found solace in the fact they stole a point from the front-running Dryden Eagles.

After getting blitzed 15-3 in the first game, the Muskies stormed back to win an exciting 15-13 decision in the second one—earning their first point of the season.

Archers on the mark with sport

It looked like something out of “Robin Hood,” only no one was wearing tights.

That was the sight above Kitchen and Bath Plus here last Wednesday as three archers—Brian Mueller, Jeff Johnston and Wade Karchuk—simultaneously drew back on their bows and aimed for the centre of the coloured rings 20 yards away.

Senior spikers trounced by Kenora

Fresh off a third-place finish at a Kenora tournament last weekend, the Muskies senior girls’ volleyball team went into yesterday’s match against Kenora here on a high.

But after the dust settled, the team had reached a season low.

The Broncos dominated the Muskies in three-straight games, running away with three points by lopsided scores of 15-1, 15-8 and 15-1.
