Cook County-Two Harbors cross country is a young, growing team, according to coach April Wahlstrom, with several runners contending for a spot at the state meet in November. Two Harbors junior Jake Paron contended for a spot at state last year and will look to take the next step this season. "He has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last few years," Wahlstrom said in an email.
After struggling the past three seasons, including a winless 2014 campaign, fourth-year Two Harbors volleyball coach Beth Innis believes the team is ready to make some strides begin to compete in the Polar League. "We are really going to have the best shot we've had yet to be competitive," Innis said. Seniors Ayla Lemke and Brianna McGrath will anchor a front line that has had some troubles in past seasons.
With 10 seniors on the roster and traditional power Grand Rapids departed for another section, the Two Harbors-Silver Bay swim and dive team hopes to send more athletes to state than ever before and maybe even a relay team. Seniors Allie Mayfield and Marina Schreiner have both been to the state meet before and are looking for return tickets. Mayfield, the school record holder in both the 200 and 500 freestyle, hopes to write her name into a few more record books, her coach and mother Heather Mayfield said.

Going into fall practice, Nelson said senior Tanner Aho was shaping up to be one of the feature backs for Two Harbors and will share carries with sophomores Spencer Ross and Chad Nordean.
Everette Haselow, chef and part-owner at Northwoods Family Grille in Silver Bay, had his very own Keith Richards moment earlier this summer when he came up with the idea for the maple bacon bourbon burger that took first place Aug. 13 at Grill Wars in Duluth. "It was one of those things where I go to bed thinking about stuff. I usually do some of my best thinking when I'm sleeping, believe it or not," Haselow said. "It was one of those thing where I wake up in the middle of the night and I'm like, 'I got it!'"
The Superior Hiking Trail leveraged social media to collect 15,000 votes and win a $75,000 grant from REI outfitters. REI pledged to give $5 per vote up to $75,000 and $500,000 total to 10 trails across the country in an online campaign. The Superior Hiking Trail was one of two trails, the other was the Mount Columbia Summit Trail in Colorado, to collect enough votes to receive the $75,000 maximum.

The grass is a little brown and there is a baseball field a few feet away, but the goals and lines leave no doubt: Someone is playing soccer in Silver Bay. Two Harbors Soccer Club recently finished adding two soccer fields in Silver Bay for the under-6 and U8 teams based in Silver Bay.
The Lake County Board of Commissioners approved changes to an ordinance which allows ATV riders to use almost any county road to access ATV trails throughout the county. The only roads maintained by the county that would not be open to ATV traffic would be Fernberg Road from Lake One to Highway 169 near Ely and Highway 2 from County Road 15 to Upland Trail near Toimi. The board also instituted a 40 mph speed limit for ATVs on county roads, unless the posted speed limit for the road is less than 40 mph.
