Loppet skier

Megan Ross was all smiles as she came to the end of her race during the first-annual Rainy Lake Loppet on Sunday that was hosted by the Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club at its Rocky Inlet trails and drew 20 skiers aged four-50+. Ross clocked in with a time of 17:31 to finish atop the 5K skate race.

Scoring chance

Noah Loveday of the Fort Frances Lakers looked to fire a shot past Dryden GM Ice Dogs' goalie Landon Pavlisin during last night's 4-3 shootout loss at the SIJHL's annual “Showcase” held at the Ice For Kids Arena. Fort Frances lost both of its games at the event, which saw all six SIJHL teams play two games apiece over the two days in front of junior, college, and pro scouts.

Metis dancing

An event dubbed “Paddle into the New Year,” presented by the Sunset Country Métis Council and the Métis Nation of Ontario Healing and Wellness Branch, was held Saturday afternoon at the Sunset Country Métis Hall here.

Womens vball

The Fort Frances Women's Volleyball League still is going strong after all these years. Action runs every Thursday beginning at 7 p.m., with all 12 teams playing at Fort High and St. Michael's School. Pictured here was a game between Scared Hitless and Let's Talk About Sets in the Fort High gym, which the latter took by a 3-1 margin.

Top shelf shot

Fort Frances Lakers' forward Ian Jarvis blasted the team's lone goal top-shelf past Thief River Falls Norskies' goalie Jackson Nelson during last Tuesday's 7-1 loss at the Ice For Kids Arena. But the Lakers exacted some revenge with a 2-1 shootout win Saturday night at the Ralph Engelstad Arena to snap a three-game losing streak.
