The Couchiching Raiders are off to a great start to the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League season.

The Sight & Sound Wolves had a howling good night offensively last Thursday.

Boys out to capture ninth-straight title

Another successful regular season is officially in the books and the Muskie boys' soccer team is one step closer to their ultimate goal.

The conditions were poor and they definitely didn't play their best brand of soccer, but the black-and-gold still managed to earn a win and a draw in their final league games last Wednesday in Kenora against the host Broncos and Dryden Eagles.
