CRANDON, TOMAHAWK - The Crandon Wrestling Team has shown it's power throughout the Northern Lakes Conference this season.
The Cardinals are undefeated in conference duel meets. They also feature three wrestlers who are state ranked. They proved to be too much for Three Lakes on Thursday night, winning the match 63-15.
In the 195-lb. match, Crandon's Isiah Doame earned a pin. Carter Shampo - who is state-ranked - collected a technical fall victory at 132 pounds.
Emerson Hegeman collected the loan pinfall victory for Three Lakes. Hegeman is ranked #2 among the state's top Division 3 Heavyweight wrestlers.
Meanwhile in Tomahawk, the Hatchet boys and girls hockey teams had home games on Thursday. The girls game was a make-up from Tuesday night - a result of the weather which hit a greater portion of the Northwoods.
The Hatchet girls faced Marshfield, who proved to be too much. Marshfield won 9-2. Paige Johnson scored two goals and added three assists for the Tigers.
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander couple thought they were empty nesters. However, an experience volunteering made them open their doors back up to kids who need a temporary home. The Zoerb's adult children moved out years ago. But at any moment they could get a call from social services that make them bring out their parenting skills for another round. Rick and Danielle Zoerb work together as realtors putting people in homes that are the perfect fit. However, the husband and wife know their home can be a good fit for others too. "There's no reason for kids to have to fall through the cracks," said Dani. Rick met a child at a mentorship program a few years ago. It was a meeting that opened a new door for him and his wife. "There was no hesitation on our part when we felt the situation was deteriorating for this young boy," said Rick.
