Local runner in Lakehead

Local runner Priscilla Miller aced her age division at the annual June Classic 5K in Thunder Bay over the weekend.

Of the 43 female racers, Miller finished second overall, clocking in at 19:33:60 in the chip-timed event.

Miller averaged 6:18 per mile while passing most of the men who also were competing.

Tigers stay unbeaten

The Dawson Tigers ran their record to 4-0 following a 20-5 thrashing of the Manitou Thunderbirds in Rainy River District Men's Fastball League action Thursday night.

Carl Big George Jr. earned the pitching win while Charlie Debungee was saddled with the loss.

Morgan Desserre had the lone homer in the game.

Muskies champs again

Death, taxes, and the Muskie boys' soccer team winning the championship.

Those seemingly are the only certainties in life.

The Muskies netted a pair of goals in the second half as they nabbed their eighth-straight league title with a 2-0 shutout of the visiting Kenora Broncos in the NorWOSSA final yesterday afternoon.

Junior athletes claim crown

The Muskie track-and-field team claimed its first-ever junior title at the NWOSSAA championships that ran Tuesday and Wednesday in Thunder Bay.

Eleven different Muskies also qualified for the all-Ontarios set for June 7-9 in Toronto, the most Fort High has ever sent.

Tori Toriseva won the junior girls' 300m race while Alacea Yerxa nabbed bronze in the 1,500m.

Owl girls fall short in NorWOSSA final

At the beginning of the season, Rainy River Owls girls' soccer team head coach Rebecca Tolen believed it would be a rebuilding year for her squad.

She was happy to be proven wrong on that assumption.

After finishing the regular season in second place with a 4-1-1 record, the Owls downed the Sioux Lookout Warriors 3-1 in the NorWOSSA 'A' semi-finals in Red Lake last Wednesday.
