College coaches involved are Bob Ritzer an assistant at UW-River Falls, Mark Wick head coach of St. Scholastica and Eric Means head coach of the Minnesota State-Mankato women.
High school coaches involved are Mike Guzzo and Shawn Bartlette of Silver Bay, Steve Wasko of Two Harbors, Steve Kirley of Hayward and Guy LeBlanc of Hermantown. Dave Dilley of Silver Bay returns as the goalie coach. Former Mariner Paul Ostoff is the director of the whole show.
The new bleachers at the football field are looking real good. The old wooden things have been replaced by aluminum. Shane Billings did the demolition of the old ones as his Eagle Scout project.
The Duluth Clydesdales and the Wisconsin Wilderness of Spooner have joined the Superior International Junior Hockey League. They join up with the Fort William, Dryden, Fort Frances and Sioux Lookout Flyers. Duluth has approached Silver Bay about the possibility of playing games there.
