The Rhinelander High School boys' tennis team advanced to 7-0 in the Great Northern Conference after sweeping Wausau Newman for the second time this season on Tuesday. The Hodags cruised to all straight set wins at Oak Island Park in Wausau and the Cardinals only had eight players and gave up a forfeit at No. 3 doubles.

"With a week and three duals before the conference match, we wanted to keep our momentum going," said Coach Bob Heideman. "We wanted to keep our focus whatever the score. We did a pretty good job on both accounts."

As of Friday, Rhinelander has a 16 point advantage over second place Antigo. The Robins bumped back into second place after making up a pair of GNC duals and earning wins over Medford and Pacelli. The Raiders now sit eight points behind Antigo and 24 points behind RHS.

The Hodags swept singles action with the most competitive match coming at the second flight. Senior Russell Benoy battled his way to a 6-4, 6-4 win against Charlie Shields.

"Russell played Charlie Shields who got a lot of balls back," said Hedieman. "Which is what the doctor ordered for Russell, because he needs to get a lot of balls back plus one. Russell was down in both sets and stuck with it mentally which is also important for him. This was a a positive step for him."

The remaining three singles flights only combined to drop two games. Sophomore Jacob Weddle at the top flight defeated Chalig Lo 6-0, 6-1. Senior Freddy Wisner at No. 3 singles went 6-1, 6-0 over Newman's Justin Thums. And senior Ian Conkey shutout Ashton Butts 6-0, 6-0.Rhinelander's doubles team did not have any trouble and breezed through two-contested wins at the top two flights. Seniors Logan Oestreich and Conner Young earned a 6-0, 6-1 win over John Ziesemer and Peyton Heitz. And freshman Elijah Evers had the same results at No. 2 doubles and won 6-0, 6-1 against Sam Beck and And Lor. Bridger Flory and Zach Thompson took the forfeit win at No. 3 doubles.

The final stretch marks a busy time for the RHS boys' tennis team that will have played six out of the next eight days including a tough non-conference invite at Wausau West yesterday and today. From there, RHS will travel to Antigo Monday and face Lakeland on both Tuesday and Thursday to close their GNC dual schedule. The conference tournament is set for Saturday in Minocqua, where the Hodags are in good position to earn another GNC title.

"It is not all that unusual because of our weather but we played last night, and play Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and then the conference match next Saturday," noted Heideman. "Not a lot of practice, so we have to get better through playing matches."
