Training Matters: Redefining failure

By Medicine Hat News on March 10th, 2017

When we strive to reach a goal and we miss, we usually feel pretty defeated. It is common to feel as though we have failed, let ourselves and possibly our team, coaches and supporters down. We’ve defined failure to ourselves as the inability to reach the level we’d like. This often leads to loss of ... Read More »

Schneider all ready to go

By Ryan McCracken on March 10th, 2017

rmccracken@medicinehatnews.com @MHNMcCracken Nick Schneider hasn’t seen the blue paint since Feb. 24, but that should change this weekend. An overtaxing first half of the season coupled with a nagging lower body injury and some sickness knocked the 19-year-old Medicine Hat Tigers goaltender off his game at the onset of 2017.

Talons take down Vikings

By Sean Rooney on March 10th, 2017

Wrong end of a comeback

By Sean Rooney on March 10th, 2017

srooney@medicinehatnews.com @MHNRooney Nationals started well for the Medicine Hat College Rattlers men’s volleyball team. Too well, it turns out. After rolling through their first two sets against B.C. champion Camosun Chargers Thursday in London, Ont., the Rattlers awoke a sleeping giant and eventually fell 3-2 (18-25, 6-25, 26-24, 25-20, 15-13). That six-point second set for ... Read More »

Old, new home ice for Hounds

By Sean Rooney on March 9th, 2017

srooney@medicinehatnews.com @MHNRooney It’s most certainly home ice, but it’s also potentially hallowed ground the Medicine Hat Hounds midget AA hockey team gets to play on this weekend. With the city planning to shut down the Medicine Hat Arena for good this summer —barring the newly-struck Save the Arena campaign —the conference finals being played there ... Read More »

Deadline acquisitions have paid off in spades

By Ryan McCracken on March 9th, 2017

rmccracken@medicinehatnews.com @MHNMcCracken It’s been nearly two months since the WHL trade deadline, and it’s hard to see the Medicine Hat Tigers as anything but winners. What initially appeared as a conservative approach has paid off in ways even head coach and general manager Shaun Clouston couldn’t have foreseen, with both defenceman Jordan Henderson and goaltender ...
