The Rhinelander High School earned a third place finish and had their lowest team score of the season at a 335 in the WIAA Division 1 golf tournament Tuesday at the Stevens Point Country Club. Senior Logan Johnson tied for medalist honors with Matt Tuman of Wausau East. Both shot a 74 and finished one stroke ahead of Charlie Okray of Stevens Point.

The top four teams qualified to go to sectionals, with Stevens Point taking first with a team score of 310. Wausau West charted second with a 329. Rhinelander in third edged Wausau East who finished fourth with a 337. Antigo (342), Marshfield (345), and D.C. Everest (356) closed out the regional teams.

Although Rhinelander recorded three previous straight match wins, and although they broke their streak, it was a great accomplishment they were able to advance to sectionals in 2016. It has been four years since the Hodags have sent a player to sectionals back in 2012.

Johnson's impressive finish was a result of no penalties and putting well. He kept the ball in play, hitting 12 greens and nine fairways. He recorded an even par 36 in the front nine. And despite a double bogey on the next hole, Johnson recovered and came back with a birdie on the 11th and charted a 38 in the back nine.

Not only did Johnson have an impressive showing and punched his way to sectionals, but his team backed him up and will be making the trip to sectionals as well. 

Freshman Nick Twite tied for 14th overall with an 85 on the day. Senior Alex Gaber and sophomore Zach Olds each charted an 88 and tied for 21st place. And Matt Reinthaler rounded out the Hodags with a 97, finishing in 35th.

Rhinelander will be part of the Division 1 Sectional and will be back in action Tuesday in Eau Claire. This will give the Hodags a week to prepare and make any adjustments before the battle at sectionals.

Hodag golfers earn back-to-back wins

The Rhinelander High School golf team has finally found their stride and shined after earning back-to-back match wins on Monday and Tuesday. First in the sixth leg of the Great Northern Confernece tournament in Medford held at the Black River Golf Course. And then at the seven team Hodag Invite at Northwood Golf Course on Tuesday.

It took all five varsity players to chat the win in Medford, when Rhinelander took part in the sixth leg of the GNC tournament. The Hodag's No. 4 and 5 players had a big day and helped lead to a three stroke victory.

Matt Reinthaler led the way for Rhinelander and shot an 83-13 over par. And Zach Olds was right behind and finished with an 84. Reinthaler tied for fourth overall and Olds tied for sixth. It also marked the Hodag's first win in a GNC match in five years.

In an impressive showing, Reinthaler did not record a double bogey and birdied No.4 - a par 4. The first time through the course he charted a 41 and then followed that up in the second round with a 42. Olds charted all pars and bogeys besides on hole No. 2 were he double bogeyed. In his first round he had a 44, but improved and finished the second round with a 40.

Next senior Alex Gaber earned a top-10 finish as well after shooting an 87 despite a rough three hole stretch. He double bogeyed on the 12th and triple-bogeyed on the 13th, and had a quadruple bogey on the 14th, but was able to shake it off and finish out strong.

Nick Twite landed an 11th place finish with a round of 90. And senior Logan Johnson struggled on the day and carded a 105. Johnson had five holes shooting over a 7, including one 10. 

In a similar situation, Rhinelander's top players couldn't get back in sink, but the bottom of the order pulled through for the Hodags and had impressive finishes to earn the win with shooting a 354 at the Hodag Invite.

Twite was able to break an 80 for the first time this spring season on Tueday; shooting a 79 which is 7-over par. He recorded a 40 on the front nine that included four bogeys and five pars. In the back nine, Twite birdied the 13th hole and finished with a 39.

Reinthaler and Olds finished next for the Hodags. Reinthaler shot an 88, good enough for the Hodag's second best score of the day. And Olds finished next with a 92.

Johnson did not finish last, but still struggled and finished with a round of 95. He charted a 10 on the hole No. 2 and finished his round with a birdie on No. 18. Gaber had a rough start and finished shooting a 107. Johnson's birdie turned out to be needed as Ashand and Rhinelander tied at 354. 

There was a decision made to go about a sudden death playoff which included all five players on each time going to the 10th hole- a par 4. The Hodags just edged Ashland 22-23 to earn the match win.

Rhinelander will play their final round of the GNC tournament on Friday at Northwood Golf Club, and more than likely will finished in third place in the conference standings, which is a huge improvement in the past several years when RHS placed fifth in four consecutive seasons.

With the top 15 players in individual standings earning all-confernece honors, the Hodags have several players in and around to do so. Johnson is in a battle for second place overall and is tied with Sam Brettingen (Antigo) and Klayton Kree (Medford). Spenser Scholl took the GNC title outright on Monday after his fourth place finish.

Reinthaler's solid performance advanced him to 10th in the conference and Gaber sits just outside the cutoff in 16th and Olds is in 18th.
