November 1, 2011

Staff Reports
It was an exciting and exhausting day at the races last Saturday for the North Country Cross Country team. Signs of snow were found out on the course with another 7” predicted to arrive later in the afternoon and temperatures never climbed out of the mid-40s. The footing was much better than earlier in the month on this course, but after 8 races went through the course, it was pretty churned up in the lower loop.

Urie Does it Again, Nets Both Goals in 2-1 Win

October 26, 2011

ORLEANS–Well what can you saw about Tyrah Urie. 19 regular season goals, and in game one of the play-offs, the freshman netted two more to give Lake Region the 2-1 win against Woodstock on Wednesday afternoon.
However, things are not all sugar and spice and everything nice in Coach Urie's mind, and he had no problem letting me know that his girls were not 100 percent in the game yesterday.
"We did not seem to be playing a very good mental game, which, when you get into the play-offs, you have got to be prepared. You can't make as many mental mistakes as we just did and expect to win."
