Vittie winless at OFSAA badminton

Muskie Katie Vittie breezed undefeated through NorWOSSA and NWOSSAA on the badminton court this season but it was a different story at the all-Ontarios in Timmins last week.

Playing against opponents who were quicker, faster, more powerful, and more skilled, Vittie lost all three of her matches—15-1, 15-6 to Kate Wood, 15-4, 15-6 to Veronica Stadler, and 15-7, 15-6 to Kate Smith.

Curling club enjoyed successful season

The local curling club is coming off a successful season, which saw it attract 75-80 new members and build up both the mixed and business leagues.

And club president Bill Gushulak is hoping to add to those numbers next season.

Clearly the club’s biggest success was its drive to get new members, and it definitely would like to get the same type of response again this fall.
