Staunch defence

Ayiana Gagne made sure her Dryden Eagles' opponent was met with some staunch defence below the net during the Muskie junior girls' basketball team's 47-12 victory Saturday afternoon that capped their gold-medal win at their annual home tournament. The black-and-gold went 4-0 en route to the tourney title. The Muskie seniors also nabbed gold, winning both games they played over the weekend.

Off fingertips

Jack Wood (#9) and Connor Ivall (#11) of the Rainy River Owls' junior boys' volleyball team had the ball go off their fingertips on a block attempt during their squad's 3-1 win (20-25, 25-20, 25-18, and 25-20) over the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints in NorWOSSA 'A' action Monday afternoon at RRHS. The juniors improved to 3-2 after starting the season 0-2.

Option to shoot

Paige Anderson got set and ready to shoot during the third quarter of the Rainy River Owls' senior girls' basketball team's 43-30 loss to the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints in NorWOSSA 'A' action Monday afternoon at RRHS. The seniors saw their record fall to 3-2 but the junior Owls remained perfect on the season (5-0) with a 30-23 victory over the Saints.

Gang tackle

Muskie defenders William Richards (28) and Aaron Scheibler teamed up to make sure Nicholas Anderson of the St. John's Tigers wasn't going to get too far during their squad's 21-13 loss in their annual Homecoming game Friday afternoon at Fort High. The Muskies (4-2) have the bye this week to close out the regular-season schedule in the WHSFL's Currie Division ('A').

OFSAA dreams quashed

The dream of qualifying for the all-Ontarios just wasn't to be for Muskie golfers Mikel Ward and Aiden Wielinga last week.

Ward, in Grade 11, and Wielinga, in Grade 12, finished shy of advancing to OFSAA at the NWOSSAA championships held last Tuesday (Oct. 2) at Kitchen Creek.

The all-Ontarios are slated to begin today and run through tomorrow in Whitby.

Rookies have started to stand out

Development of rookie players is key at the junior level in high school sports—and it's something that's starting to become more noticeable for the Muskie girls' basketball squad.

A number of younger players stood out to co-coach Gord McCabe in Thursday afternoon's 56-28 rout of the visiting Kenora Broncos, which saw the black-and-gold improve to 3-1 in NorWOSSA play.
