Antigo gymnastics captures D-2 Sectional; Pines - Storm to meet in Tomahawk
ANTIGO, EAGLE RIVER - In Gymnastics Thursday night, Antigo High School was hosting a Division 2 Sectional.

Antigo's Kirsten Tincher won the All-Around title. The Red Robins won the team title.

Chequamegon's Alexis Stueber finished tenth in the All-Around.

Rhinelander's Ellie Spiegelhoff was eleventh in the vault and fourth in the All-Around.


In team results, Antigo won the meet, Ashland was second and Rhinelander finished third.

The State meet is next week in Wisconsin Rapids.

Meanwhile, the Northland Pines girls hockey team will play for a trip to Madison Friday night.

The Eagles face the defending state champs - the D-C Everest Co-Op known as the Central Wisconsin Storm.

The game was moved to Sara Park in Tomahawk. It was scheduled to be played in Wisconsin Rapids.

The move makes the travel distance for both teams nearly identical. Also the threat of severe weather in the central part of the state was also a factor. In fact Friday night's game is a rematch of last year's section final. That final was also played in Tomahawk.

Friday night's game begins at 7pm.
