- Great Northern Conference volleyball teams made the trip to Rhinelander today for the conference tournament.
They were led by the undefeated Tomahawk Hatchets.
But it was the Hodags that had a strong showing.
They swept the Lakeland T-Birds in 3 sets in round 2 after sitting the first round out.
But there is one team that Rhinelander is concerned with more than the others.
"Northland Pines, of course," says Rhinelander Head Coach Kathy Wawrzynowicz. "They're so improved. Julie has done a super job with that team and we have them the first round [of regionals] on Tuesday. We had a close match with them here at the beginning of the season, we lost in 4. So we are focusing on that."
Tuesday is the start of regionals.
Teams want to exit conference play on a high note with a few wins at the GNC tournament.
"If we lose two matches, we're kind of on a downer so we're trying to become really tough and up and just be fired up, and we want to go out on the conference season with some wins instead of some losses," says Wawrzynowicz.
