Owls' junior hoopsters claim gold

They were the best team in the regular season and rightfully earned the bye to the NorWOSSA 'A' junior girls' basketball final.

And as it turns out, they were the best team between them and the host St. Thomas Aquinas Saints last week in Kenora.

The Rainy River Owls capped an undefeated season with NorWOSSA gold as they downed the Saints 37-25 score on Thursday.

Junior hoopsters grind out gold

They knew the target was squarely on their backs and that a talented Kenora Broncos' team would be hungry to try to snatch the crown from them at the “Fish Tank.”

But the top-ranked Muskie junior girls' basketball team displayed the skills that had made them the top dogs of the regular season in a scrappy 39-25 win over Kenora in the NorWOSSA final last Tuesday.
