THREE LAKES - Gavin Maney of Three Lakes signed his letter of intent Thursday to play football at St. Norbert College in Green Bay.

He will play fullback.

According to Wissports.net, Maney finished second in the Northern Lakes conference in rushing yards in 2015.

He will be going on an academic scholarship.

Maney explained his decision.

"I really like the campus there," he said. "I was also looking at other schools like Norbert, Point, Ripon and stuff, but I really liked the campus, first of all, and that's why I decided to go there."

St. Norbert is in Division III. The team won its conference last year but lost in the first round of the playoffs.

Maney is ready to get on the field.

"I'm pretty excited. I've always wanted to play football," he said. "I mean, my uncle played and it's always been my dream for me, so it's kind of surreal that I'm going to be able to play."

St. Norbert will kick off its season at home against UW-Stevens Point.

MOSINEE - Teams from the same high school don't usually win conference titles in the same year, but the Mosinee girls and boys basketball teams have a shot to do just that this season.

"We've just become such a family, and I think that's showing on the court just because we are so close, both on and off the court, and I think that's been a factor in our success," says senior forward Natasha Stubbe.

Northern Edge beats up M&M 8-0Submitted: 01/30/2016

RHINELANDER - The Northern Edge were back in Rhinelander Saturday.

I hope you like a lot goals, because that's all there was.

Katie Detert hit 150 career goals earlier in the week, but she was hungry for more.

She takes the pass all alone, and catches the goalie out of the net.

The wrister hits the top bar and bounces in.

That's her first of the day.

The next one came a few minutes later.

She fakes out the goalie with some great puck control, and scoops it into the net.

The goalie never had a chance.

She's just one away from the hat trick, and the third might look the easiest.

Detert takes just the simple slapper.

I'm not sure M&M's goalie ever even saw that puck.

Hats on the ice for number 13.

Detert adds a couple of assists here, and Northern Edge dominates the Thunder offensively.

Goalie Shea Peterson preserves the shutout.

Detert tallies 5 of the Edge's 8 points.

8-0 is your final.

EAGLE RIVER - Waupaca went up to the Dome Friday to take on Northland Pines.

First period, Waupaca doing a good job of keeping opportunities in their favor.

Pines looks like they can clear it, but the puck is stolen.

Cannon Hermanson gets it into the middle of the ice.

Jack Menzies finishes it off.

Waupaca draws first blood.

The Eagles don't wait long at all to give their answer.

Two puck drops later, Colton Raymond driving quick.

He has no alley for the shot, so he passes to Nick Dean in a scrum of players.

Good luck is on the Eagles' side.

Dean stays with it, and it's a Pines goal.

That's why you don't give up.

Pines takes this one 5-2.

She gets the hoop and the harm on a terrific play.

A couple possessions later, Williams passes low for a nice, strong bucket.

Thunderbirds win big.

RHINELANDER - Rhinelander's Athletic Director Brian Paulson sent out a letter Wednesday reminding students to cheer loudly at sporting events.

He has seen a decline in student cheering since the WIAA come out with its list of suggested banned chants, which included "Airball!," "Fun-da-men-tals!," and "You can't do that!"

Paulson says that the national coverage of the suggested bans has also made students nervous to chant at games.

GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers cleaned out their lockers Monday

Their season ended abruptly in overtime for the second straight season on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Packers had an up and down season on the offensive side of ball.

"Obviously we did not get it done on offense so I think the structure was obviously a part of the failure so that's something we'll be closely evaluated," said Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

The Packers offense didn't have that same flow as it did last year. A couple factors played into that. First the run is an integral part of the pass. Eddie Lacy rushed for 758 yards this year, that's 381 yards less than last year. McCarthy said he needs to be in better shape next year.
