Muskie ‘Bees’ looking for win

As the Muskie “Bees” head into their home opener tomorrow against the International Falls Broncos junior varsity squad, head coach Bob Fryer is hoping his team takes a change in direction.

Coming off a 20-6 loss to the Roseau Rams in their season opener, and a 26-7 defeat to the Baudette Bears last week, Fryer noted both losses were a “mirror image of each other.”

Bass tourney boasts record number of teams for next year

The fourth-annual Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship is still more than 10 months away but already it’s attracted two dozen teams more than it can hold.

The three-day tournament, which attracted 104 two-person teams this year, has received 149 entries for next July’s event.

But only 125 entries will be accepted (with five additional teams placed on a waiting list).

Senior spikers lack emotion in tourney

The Muskies were handed a lesson in what it takes to win at the senior level at the eighth-annual FFHS/A&W junior and senior boys’ volleyball tournament here last week.

After the black-and-gold swept Rainy River 15-6 and 15-12, then bounced Ignace by identical 15-11 scores to open the eight-team, pre-season tourney, they looked to be well on their way to an impressive showing.
