Runners ready to make their mark at OFSAA

The Muskie cross-country team was spectacular yet again at the NWOSSAA championships held last Wednesday at the Kamview Ski Trails in Thunder Bay.

Fort High qualified eight runners for the all-Ontarios, which are slated for Nov. 3 in Burlington, while all 13 Muskie runners improved on the times they had set at the SSSAA Time Trials on the same course last month.

Senior squad holds its own

Compiling a 4-2 record in NorWOSSA play so far was nice for the Muskie senior girls' basketball team, but they wanted to prove themselves against some highly-skilled Thunder Bay teams.

The Muskies did just that at the annual Tiger Fall Classic held Friday and Saturday in Thunder Bay, where they compiled a 3-1 record en route to a third-place finish.

Hand on ball

Aynsley Williams had her back to her Igance Falcons' opponent and was looking for an option to pass to during the second half of the Rainy River Owls' senior girls' basketball team's 47-30 loss last Wednesday afternoon in NorWOSSA 'A' action at RRHS.

Seeing thru traffic

Fort Frances Lakers' goalie Jacob Gnidziejko had the daunting task of looking through the traffic in Dryden GM Ice Dogs' captain Trey Palermo (#22), forward Cameron Coutre, and his own defenceman, Colton Bodnar, during the second period of his squad's 6-4 win last Tuesday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Reaching in

Emily Heil of the Dryden Eagles tried to reach in and steal the ball from Alina Eldridge during the Muskie senior girls' basketball team's 57-55 loss last Tuesday afternoon in NorWOSSA action at Fort High. The Muskies rebounded later in the week, though, with a 59-24 rout of the Broncos in Kenora to improve their league record to 4-2.
