The Rhinelander 6th grade girls placed second in their recent tournament in Antigo. The Hodags only loss was to top ranked Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln. The girls were ahead most of the game but ran into foul trouble, eventually falling to Rapids 50-38. The girls were victorious in their other three games:
Rhinelander 26, Antigo 24
Rhinelander 45, Rosholt 15
Rhinelander 44, Lakeland 19
The girls have gone 9-3 and placed 2nd in their last 3 tourneys, losing in the final minutes of each game. Based on their recent play against stronger team in the GNBL, the 6th grade girls were invited to participate in the Wisconsin State Invitational Tournament on March 28 and 29 in Merrill.
