Court teams open play
The NorWOSSA winter court sports season-opener was a successful one for the Muskies as three of the four teams were victorious over the host Kenora Broncos yesterday.
Coming off last season’s NWOSSAA championship run, the senior boys’ basketball squad opened with a high-scoring 98-69 triumph.
The junior boys’ basketball team was the only one to suffer a setback in Kenora, falling 57-43.
All four teams currently are slated to resume league play next Tuesday in Dryden.
But the status of those games remains in limbo due to the latest work-to-rule edict from the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) that’s set to take effect on Monday.
Prior to that, however, two of the Muskie squads are scheduled to take part in tournaments this weekend.
The junior boys will host a six-team tournament at Fort High starting tomorrow, with their opening contest slated for 1:30 p.m. against the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints (Kenora).
The senior spikers, meanwhile, will head to Dryden for a two-day tournament that also starts tomorrow.
