Mens fastball


Couchiching Raiders’ catcher Wade Johnson, above, was on the receiving end of a throw that arrived a moment too late to get Stratton Eagles’ runner Jake Vandenbrand during Rainy River District Fastball League action in late August. Meanwhile, at top right, Makinnley McCormick of Burriss snared 2016 Emo Walleye Classic champs Kelvin Caul of Devlin and Ted Heyens of Stratton during the inaugural “Kids Gone Fishing” event held in conjunction with the 16th-annual EWC in late May, which this year was won by Les Morrison and Oliver Gibbons for a second time. Audrey Drennan, bottom right, stood tall in the saddle despite her small stature while being guided by her grandmother, Sandy Drennan, during the AQHA lead line event held in conjunction with the Borderland Quarter Horse Association’s annual show in early August at the Rainy River Valley Agricultural Society’s fairgrounds in Emo.
