The Rhinelander High School girls' basketball team closed out their Great Northern Conference schedule undefeated at 12-0 after beating Antigo at home on Friday night. The Hodags had three players score in double-digits to cruise to a 74-41 over the Robins at the Jim Miazga Community Gymnasium. Rhinelander was able to celebrate after and cut the nets down as they celebrated their first ever conference championship in program history.

RHS earned a share of the GNC title after defeating Northland Pines on the road on Monday night. And the Hodags would then win the title outright when Lakeland lost to Medford on Wednesday in overtime. Friday also marked Rhinelander's 12th consecutive win and gives them plenty of momentum going into playoffs.

It was a slow start for the Hodags who did not hit a field goal in the first game of the girls/guys doubleheader in 4 1/2 minutes. Antigo would take a 10-5 lead but that would be short-lived when RHS final found their offensive rhythm and would go on a 39-4 run from that point. The Hodags also hit 10 of their 12 three-pointers in the first half.

The run started with 12 unanswered points included a triple from senior Brooke Mork and a pair of back-to-back triples from sophomore Hannah Worachek. And Rhinelander closed the half on 11-0 run that included another three from Mork and a pair of triples from junior Kenedy Van Zile. Junior Sophia McGinnis also hit a three in the first half and senior Peyton Van Zile closed the first-half with a triple right before the buzzer to give RHS a 44-14 advantage at the break.

Rhinelander started the second half on a 10-5 run that included their only triples of the second half from Van Zile and fellow junior Cynthia Beavers. Although a combined 25 foul calls in the final 18 minutes slowed the tempo down a bit, but RHS still outscored the Robins 30-27 in the second half.

Midway through the second half, Antigo senior Brinna Mauk scored five straight included a traditional three-point play and an inside basket. RHS responded on a 12-2 run sparked by Mork and scored in transition and added another drive the following possession. Peyton Van Zile also scored on a drive and Beavers added a pair of free throws on the run. The Hodags would finish with a 74-41 victory to complete their perfect GNC season.

Van Zile finished with the game-high of 25 points which included 16 alone in the first half. Sophomore Rebecca Lawrence finished the night with 14 points and Mork added 13 points that included three triples in the first half.

Mauk led the Robins with 13 points which included nine in the second half and her own 5-0 run. Antigo senior Maya Gaedtke also added 10 points.

Rhinelander advanced to 17-5 overall and finished the GNC 12-0 and will now shift their focus to playoffs. RHS earned the 3rd seed for the Division 3 bracket and will host the winner of the Mosinee/Wausau East game Friday in the semifinal contest. Tip-off is set for 7:00PM.

The Rhinelander High School girls' basketball and head Coach Ryan Clark are one step closer to earning their first Great Northern Conference title. On Friday night, junior point guard Kenedy Van Zile led the Hodags to a 61-45 win at Raider Hall and earned her 1,000th career point in the process.

Van Zile had the game-high of 24-points and came into the contest only needing 14 points to reach the scoring milestone. With just under six minutes left in the first half Van Zile scored a layup on a give and go from the left baseline on a pass from fellow junior Cynthia Beavers. On the next dead ball Medford stopped the game to honor Van Zile on her accomplishment.

Rhinelander built any early 18-11 lead with the help of Van Zile who had 12 of the team's points about halfway through the first 18-minutes. The Hodags' defense was able to shut the Raider's offense out for over a 12-minute span that extended into the second half. At one point RHS extended their lead to 38-18. Van Zile went on to score 20 of her points in the first half.

The Hodags went on an early 11-2 lead in the opening five minutes of the second half. But Medford had a late rally to cut the lead to 13 with just under three minutes to play but that damage was done and RHS earned the 61-45 victory.

After Kenedy Van Zile's 24 points, senior Brooke Mork finished with 11 points, Payton Van Zile recorded nine points, and sophomore Rebecca Lawrence added eight points in the win.

It marked Rhinelander's eighth consecutive win and RHS remains undefeated in the GNC at 9-0. The Hodags only need one more conference win to clench at least a share of their first GNC title. RHS will be on road tonight to face Northland Pines. Rhinelander is scheduled to host D.C. Everest Tuesday night before closing out the week with back-to-back girls/guys doubleheader conference games Thursday and Friday against Tomahawk and Antigo.
