Junior spikers start strong

It's been a tale of two different seasons so far for the Muskie junior and senior boys' volleyball teams.

The juniors have roared out of the gate, winning their NorWOSSA season-opener 3-2 (25-15, 20-25, 25-19, 22-25, and 15-12) against the visiting Dryden Eagles last Thursday afternoon before claiming the title at the Kenora Invitational Tournament over the weekend.

Defensive wall

Jaxon Gartzke (#17) and Declan Webb (#18) combined to provide a defensive wall for the Muskie junior boys' volleyball team during their 3-2 win (25-15, 20-25, 25-19, 22-25, and 15-12) over the visiting Dryden Eagles last Thursday afternoon in the NorWOSSA regular-season opener.

Brought down

Muskie running back Cam Bowles (26) was caught firmly in the grips of Elmwood Giants' linebacker Jacobien O'Connor as he was wrestled to field during his squad's 14-8 win Friday afternoon in their WHSFL home-opener. Bowles rambled for 116 yards on 19 carries and also had a three-yard touchdown run in the win.

In your face

Tatum Glowasky wasn't about to give Julie Jones of the Dryden Eagles any room to breathe during the Muskie junior girls' basketball team's 41-24 win last Thursday afternoon in the NorWOSSA season-opener at Fort High. Keisha DeBungie scored a team-high 10 points to pace the Muskies' offence.

Running hard

Muskie quarterback Brady Meeks rambled his way down the left sideline en route to a 14-yard touchdown to open the scoring in the second quarter of his squad's 14-8 victory over the Elmwood Giants on Friday afternoon. The pivot had six carries for 17 yards in a winning effort.

Muskie girls tryouts

It was just a matter of who was going to get to the puck first for a pair Muskie girls' hockey team hopefuls during a drill yesterday afternoon at the first try-out session at the Ice For Kids Arena. Those on hand tried to compete their hardest in hopes of impressing head coach Chris Sinclair and the rest of the coaching staff.
