On Friday April 10th at 8 o'clock sharp, the lights over Mike Webster Stadium and Stafford Field (Hodag Park) came on. No one took to the field, but this stood as a message to the players and students who have lost their Spring season and the rest of their school year, that we stand with them. Due to the COVID- 19 pandemic our Spring athletes and seniors of this year are missing out on the end of the 2019-2020 school year. All across Wisconsin, school districts lit up the fields for those students who couldn't be there. #BeTheLightWI was what spurred this movement. With the stay at home order being set to the end of the school year and school being cancelled for all Rhinelander students this brings us hope when there seems to be none.
To all of our seniors and athletes just know we are with you! Hodags united we stand!
