Eight junior members of the Aquanauts competed at the Spring Sprint meet in Warroad on Saturday, with assistant coach Karl Gunderson saying all of them swam “very well.”
“It was a fun meet for the kids, and it was good because it was a short trip that took just a couple of hours,” said Gunderson, in his first year as an assistant with the club.
The Muskie girls soccer team have proven to be the class of NorWOSSA so far this season, finishing atop the standings after two tournaments and now head into this weekend’s playoff as the number-one seed.
The Muskie girls’ soccer team heads into this weekend’s NorWOSSA playoffs here as the top seed after finishing 3-0-1 at a tournament last week in Kenora.
The girls opened play Wednesday with a 6-0 drubbing over Dryden, paced by goals from Laureen Cousineau (two), Lynn Pollard, Lindy Holt, Tanya Hughes, and Carrie Selin.
After leading last weekend’s tournament here in offensive production, one thing is certain when it comes to evaluating the Muskie girls’ soccer team.
They can score goals. Lots of them.
Paced by the offensive talents of Laureen Cousineau, who scored six goals in four games over the weekend, the Muskies proved they can put the ball in the net.
Even though the Muskie boys’ soccer team fell 1-0 to Dryden in their final game of a tournament here last weekend to finish in second spot, the coaches came away satisfied their team has a good shot at winning the NorWOSSA title this year.
Barwick resident Tony Richards is hoping for fur, fins, feathers, and horns to cross his path over the next few months as he picks up the pace in his new business “Sturgeon Creek Taxidermy.”
Richards, 25, who is currently running his taxidermy operation out of his parents’ home on Hele Road (one mile west of Barwick), graduated in early March from Penn School Taxidermy in Calgary.
Faced with a schedule that forces his team to play all of their games in just over a month, the head coach of the Muskie girls’ soccer team knows full well the importance of playing as many exhibition matches as possible before the NorWOSSA tournament.
As is so often the case in any sport, hard work and a determined effort can lead a less-talented team to victory.
The Muskie boys’ soccer team, though blessed with its share of talent, used that hard-work formula en route to a third-place finish at the St. John’s Ravenscourt tournament in Winnipeg last weekend.
The local adult mixed slo-pitch season, slated to begin next Monday, will see a reduced number of teams playing in the Thursday night league.
