The Rhinelander High School boys' tennis team advanced to a 3-0 in the Great Northern Conference after defeating both Medford and Antigo on the road this week. The Hodags blanked Antigo on Tuesday as well as Medford on Monday. Against the Raiders RHS rallied to pull off a trio of three-setters while against the Robins they had an easy path and earned seven straight set wins in the conference dual. 

The Hodags had to make several adjustments Monday as they faced very windy conditions at Medford. Markus Johnson and Russell Benoy both battled their way back after dropping the first set in the top two singles flights to earn the final two and earn the three-set wins. Johnson fell 4-6 in the first set to Alec Shear before finishing strong in the final two sets at 6-1, 6-3. Benoy fell 2-6 to Charlie Branstetter, but grinded out the second set 7-5 to force the tiebreaker and closed the match 6-0.

Freddy Wisner at No. 4 singles also won a three-set match but won his first set and fell in the second set and would comeback to take the third. Wisner started out with a 6-4 win over Carson Kleist in the first set before falling 4-6. And in the tiebreaker, Wisner settled in and finished with a 6-1 win. Freshman Jacob Weddle shutout Luis Silva 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3 singles as well.

While in doubles action, Jared Haug and Connor Young at the top flight downed Alec Veal and Trentin Messman 6-3, 7-5. While at No. 2 doubles, Jared Fabich and Grant Gilbert defeated Armin Kliewe and Sterling Reilly 6-3, 6-2. And the final doubles flight, Cade Aschenbrenner and Logan Oestreich cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 win against Logan Searles and Zach Kawa. 

The very next day, Rhinelander had the same 7-0 results, but statistically easier path for their third straight GNC win. Johnson, Benoy, Weddle, and Wisner all won straight set wins in singles action. While Young/Haug, Fabich/Gilbert, and Oestreich/Aschenbrenner won in doubles.

The Hodags will be back in action against Medford again, this time at the RHS tennis courts at 4:00PM on Thursday evening. Rhinelander is now 3-0 in the conference for 40 points and hold a four-point advantage over Pacelli in the standings.
