The Muskegon Lumberjacks have been hot lately – particularly in January, when they posted a sizzling 7-2 record. They are making a push for first place in the USHL standings, and prepping for a run in the postseason playoffs.

Meanwhile, 40-year-old Errol Palmer of Roosevelt Park recently returned to the boxing ring for the first time in nearly 20 years, finally getting the professional fight that eluded him in the past.

Those are the top stories in the February edition of the Local Sports Journal magazine, which also includes profiles of Lumberjacks coach John LaFontaine (the brother of NHL great Pat LaFontaine); Mona Shores basketball stars Jordan Walker and Alyza Winston; the incredibly successful Whitehall wrestling team; and a Muskegon Heights athlete who snagged an athletic scholarship during an unplanned workout.
