After years of high and low swings in terms of popularity, the local skeet club is finding itself taking a serious aim for new members.
The club, which holds its shoots on the grounds of the Sportsmen’s Club property at Frog Creek each Tuesday night, only has six members these day. But it’s definitely looking for more to join for next season.
Former Muskie star Hannah Carter has been voted one of the three co-captains of the Bemidji State Beavers women’s soccer team this year.
Carter, a freshman with Bemidji, said she was surprised with her selection as a captain, which was voted on by her teammates. And she admitted to being excited—and nervous—about making her collegiate debut tomorrow against St. Scholastica.
Another racing season will come to a close tomorrow at the Emo Speedway but the track is left with several question marks heading into next year.
The races, which were switched to Thursday nights from Friday this year, did not attract the fan support needed.
Brian Kosowick got a first-hand look Saturday at some of the golfers who give new meaning to the phrase “driving the ball off the tee.”
But while the 19-year-old Kitchen Creek member was amazed at how far some of them could drive the ball, he didn’t look out of place one bit, either.
With just a handful of players lost from last season’s Muskie lineup, the black-and-gold will have the luxury of sending out an experienced hockey team this season.

As I motored my Champion 190 out onto the flats of Mille Lacs, I noticed numerous boats anchored or back-trolling along the drop-off areas. This isn’t a bad approach, and many times I look for the edges to find active walleyes.
With several veterans lost from last year’s NorWOSSA championship team, Muskie football head coach Bob Swing is going to use Saturday’s exhibition tilt with the St. Paul’s Crusaders as a chance to let his young players gain some valuable experience.
And he admitted he’s not too concerned with the outcome.
After threatening to cancel the program last week due to a lack of coaches, the Muskie ‘B’ football team will go ahead as scheduled with its first practice Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at Westfort.
Bob Swing, head coach of the senior squad, said he was “pleased” with the response received to a plea for more coaches for the upcoming season.
Stalled contract negotiations between teachers and the Keewatin-Patricia public school board may cancel all NorWOSSA sports for the upcoming year, league president Diane Chappell warned this week.
The football season is the first casualty, and there’s a very distinct possibility that the court sports and hockey will be next.
