ASHLAND - Before lifting weights or running sprints, the Ashland Oredockers pick up their helmet stickers, rewards for meeting goals in the team's previous game.

This year, Ashland has been getting more helmet stickers and accomplishing more goals than anyone outside the locker room expected.

"I thought it was something we could do because we put a lot of work in in the offseason," said senior right tackle Hunter Powless.

The Oredockers are 3-0 in conference play after defeating the Merrill Bluejays last weekend, which puts them on the brink of their first playoff berth in nearly a decade.

NORTHWOODS - Antigo will host Rhinelander in the 84th playing of the historic bell game tomorrow.

Antigo leads the 83-year history of the game with 54 wins, 27 losses and two ties.

But this year, the odds are pretty equal for both teams.

Antigo is 1-3 on the season while only beating Lakeland.

The Reb Robins have also recorded less passing and rushing yards than the Hodags.

Antigo head coach Tom Schofield says the rivalry win is never an easy fight.

CRANDON - It wasn't too long ago that Crandon volleyball only won a single game all season.

This year, they're contending for a conference title. That's partly because some of their players have won at that level before.

Crandon's volleyball team has several players that were on the girls' basketball team that made it to last year's state playoffs.

Head coach Karen Lehman thinks that having players who learned the work ethic from a different sport is part of the reason her team started 7-3.

EAGLE RIVER - Labor Day marked the unofficial end of summer last week. But there are some relics of the season that hung on for a little longer.

One of them: racing at the Eagle River Speedway, which wrapped up Sunday.

The season extended a week or two later because of several Friday rainouts. This was an un-sanctioned race, meaning that drivers outside the local area could participate.

Track promoter James Koga hopes to see more visiting drivers next year.

"We're looking at the possibility of being a non-sanctioned track next year, so that way we would open it up to all cars and all different kinds of cars," Koga said.
