The jr. boys volleyball team finished the regular season with an 11-4 record, just behind first place Espanola, who had a 12-3 record.  After eliminating Elliot Lake in 4 sets in the semi finals, the Huskies faced Espanola in the finals.  In a best of 5 championship game, the finals went the length, with the Huskies winning it all in the 5th set. The boys were very excited to bring home their well deserved championship banner.  The Huskies will now represent the North Shore at the 'A' NOSSA championships being held this Friday in Sturgeon Falls.


Sr. Girls Basketball picks up NSSSA Silver

The Sr. Girls basketball team finished the season on a high note after defeating the 2nd placed Elliot Lake Atoms, in the semi-finals, by a large margin of 41-25, after having lost to Elliot Lake in both regular season match-ups.  The Huskies went on to face the undefeated Espanola High School in the finals, and were no match for the strong Spartan team.  The girls were proud to bring home NSSSA silver medals.
