Tomahawk, Merrill advance to volleyball section finalsSubmitted: 10/25/2012

MOSINEE, SCHOFIELD - Just two matches from a trip to Green Bay for the state championships. That's what volleyball teams throughout the state were facing heading into Thursday night.

In Division Two, Tomahawk faced Antigo. Hatchets finished state runner-up a year ago. Despite a team with several new faces from the 2011 team, plus the departure of long-time head coach Jenn Pfannerstill, Tomahawk appears poised for a return to state. Tomahawk needed five games, but defeated Antigo 3-2.

The match was played at Mosinee High School. Tomahawk will face Barron on Saturday night's section final. The match is scheduled to be played in Altoona.


Last week, Pfannerstill resigned as both head coach and her teaching position at Tomahawk High School for personal reasons. Assistant coach Jerry Angle has taken over as head coach.

Meanwhile, in Division One, Merrill advanced to the section final with a three games to one victory over Stevens Point. The match was played at D.C. Everest High School in Schofield.

Merrill takes on Marshfield Saturday night in the D-1 section final, scheduled to be played at Wausau East High School. Marshfield won 2 of the 3 matches earlier this season.

MADISON - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled against a man convicted for his role in plotting to kill his lover's husband.

The court said Thursday that Carlos Cummings did not invoke his right to remain silent when he told police during an interrogation to ``take me to my cell.''

A state appeals court last year upheld Cummings' conviction, saying his comment about wanting to be put in a cell was unclear.

The Supreme Court agreed. It also ruled that Cummings' 24-year prison sentence was not unduly harsh.
