This is one of them, a simple yet effective picture of Grand River's Mary Worndl taken during Wednesday's WCSSAA girls hockey game against Huron Huskies.
I asked Phil Walker to snap a few pictures of the Renegades captain and this is one that didn't get used.

Finding it hard to get excited about the two-team "battle" for the CWOSSA triple-A berth that will be awarded to either St. David or Monsignor Doyle in District 8 senior boys basketball?
I feel the same.
In case you missed it, the Celtics stayed alive on Wednesday with a 42-30 win at Monsignor Doyle.
The Celtics improved to 2-7 with the win and have one regular-season game remaining against 1-7 Rockway. The Mustangs, meanwhile, are 2-5 and have games remaining against St. Mary's, Resurrection and St. Benedict.
In the predictable world of D8 basketball, we know that Doyle is finished winning and is not going to beat the Eagles, Phoenix or Saints. So it's St. David's berth to grab; simply beat Rockway on Feb. 13 in the final game of the schedule and the CWOSSA berth belongs to the Celtics.
St. David would also nail down the fourth and final playoff position with a win over Rockway.
Let's suppose for a second that Rockway wins, a genuine possibility as the Flames already own a 60-56 win over the Celtics. We'll then have three teams with 2-8 records and D8 officials will use a tiebreaker of some sort to determine which team gets the fourth and final playoff position.
No matter what, it would seem that St. David would get the CWOSSA berth in the event of a three-way tie, having beaten the Mustangs by 12 and losing to them by just six earlier in the season.
Which raises the obvious question: Should a team with a 2-8 record that might not even be in the league playoffs be going to CWOSSA, especially when there are better triple-A teams in WCSSAA that won't be going?
The answer to that, of course, is no.
Sadly, we all know how to solve this problem, but few seem interested in doing so.
