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 snow storm caught Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander off guard last weekend and collapsed a greenhouse. Now that spring weather is here, Hanson's is ready to move forward by making some adjustments. "We got by for 25 years doing what we were doing," said Hanson's Garden Village Co-owner Brent Hanson. Last weekend's spring snow storm set back Hanson's. "We thought we were ahead of schedule having that greenhouse nice and filled," said Hanson's Manager Beth Hanson.
"One bad storm and there you go. Things happen," said Brent. The storm collapsed a greenhouse holding thousands of plants. "For years we've gotten by with these lighter cheaper green houses," said Brent. "We'll be down a greenhouse for a little bit here," said Beth. Now Hanson's will only use sturdier and solid greenhouses so that collapses don't become a pattern.
