The Hodags were leading in both divisions entering the day, but were unable to maintain their standings and would fall back to a runner-up finishes after remaining ahead after the Super G.

The Rhinelander/Northland Pines boys finished the day second in the team standings, while Wausau West placed first in the team standings and would pass the Hodags by four points in the final NC standings, after having to makeup ground after not having enough skiers to compete at Ski Brule in a conference race in the beginning of February. 

On the girls' side of action, the Hodags placed third in the NC finale. Ashwabay finished second on the day and edged Rhinelander/Northland Pines by only a single point to earn the conference title. 

Ty Springer, a Northland Pines freshman was the only Hodag to earn an individual conference title in the boys' division. Spring recorded his fourth second-place finish this year and cruised to the boys' title and had the best point totals in the slalom, giant slalom, and Super G.

In the Granite Peak NC final, Spring finished second in all three races. Wausau West's Jack Eder finished first in the Super G and giant slalom and also won four of the five NC races this year. But due to not competing at Ski Brule in the beginning of February, Eder dropped to fourth in the overall standings. This season was the first season that all five races calculate into the final individual standings as well.

RHS also were without senior Breyden Luebke, who fell free-skiing between competition runs and did not compete in the slalom. Luebke was 30th on the day and would drop to 16th in the overall NC standings. On the day, Daniel Ritchie finished seventh, Patrick Stemper placed 19th, and John Krueger finished 24th. 

Rhinelander's McKenize Imm finished first in the slalom and GS through this season, but missed a gate Monday in the Super G and did not finish the race. Imm then dropped to second in the individual NC standings.

On the day, Imm finished ninth followed by teammates Calya Fritz in 11th, Haley Seefeldt finished 12th, and Tori Roberts charted 15th. In the overall point standings, Fritz cracked top-10 and placed eighth and Seefeldt finished 11th and Roberts came in 14th.

For girls' snowboarding, Kaiya Shrader finished second in the NC meet and would place second in the final conference standings. Kylie White would finish eighth in both the final NC meet and overall standings. While Bailey Schwab recorded his season best finish in fourth on the day and would bump up to seventh in the overall standings. All three boarders qualified as individuals to compete in the 2018 WIARA state championships over the weekend.

Along with Shrader, White, and Schwab; the boys' and girls' skiing qualified as a team to compete in La Crosse at the WIARA state championship. Snowboarding will be Saturday at Mt. La Crosse while skiing will be Sunday/Monday.
