Hoopsters win again
The girls’ basketball teams kept soaring, the junior boys’ volleyball squad was jumping, but the senior boys remained grounded.
That was the day in a nutshell for the Muskie court teams yesterday in Kenora as the black-and-gold posted three wins in four tries against the host Broncos.
Grade 12 veterans Maisie Fichuk and Keira Lindgren led the way, being selected as their team’s top players by Muskie co-coaches Dan Bird and Mike Krueger.
Sarah Bagacki led the Muskies with eight points, while Fichuk and Lindgren had six apiece.
The junior girls (2-0) also kept up their winning ways with a 38-21 pounding of Kenora (0-1).
Lindsay Dixon led all scorers with 18 points while Muskie co-coach Marla Knutsen also cited Claire Hyatt for having a strong game.
In boys’ volleyball action, the junior Muskies (1-1) rallied from a one-set deficit to beat the Broncos (0-1) by a 3-1 margin (17-25, 25-23, 26-24, and 25-22).
The lone Fort High crew to come home empty-handed was the senior squad, which was swept 3-0 (25-21, 25-22, and 25-16) to fall to 0-2 on the season.
The Muskies return to NorWOSSA action next Thursday (Oct. 3) in Dryden against the Eagles.
Their next home action is slated for Oct. 8 against the Broncos.
