Senior hoopsters dominate Sioux Lookout tournament

The Muskie senior girls’ basketball team reeled off four-straight wins, including a 55-37 victory over host Sioux Lookout in the final round-robin game, to win the championship of a tournament there last weekend.

After opening the tournament with a close 34-31 win over Ignace, the black-and-gold went on to beat Atikokan 54-44 and then Rainy River 40-22.

High school sports jeopardized by possible teachers' strike

In the event the dispute between Ontario teachers and the provincial government leads to a strike, high school sports will be cancelled immediately, OFSAA executive director Colin Hood said yesterday morning.
