Time is running short for the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton girls hockey team and its six seniors.
The team (14-8-2) closed out its regular season with a 4-1 loss at Hibbing-Chisholm on Monday night, so the time is now to bring down the curtain on some fine high school careers in the playoffs.

It may be early, but the Lumberjacks alpine boys and girls ski teams are looking good out of the gate. In their opening competition – a nine-team ski meet at Lutsen Friday – the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton girls took first place, while the boys took fifth place.
