Three Area Players on Historic U16 State TeamSubmitted: 03/26/2013
Story By Joe Dufek


RHINELANDER - A Trio of Northwoods hockey Players are part of a history making team. Their dream season is taking them to California.

Kelly Knetter of Wausau on the left, Katie Detert of Rhinlander in the middle and Tomahawk's Nicole Nerva are members of Team Wisconsin's U16 team.

Earlier this month, Team Wisconsin won both the state and Central District Playoffs. That means the team earned their first ever trip to the USA Hockey National Championships.

The Championships are in San Jose. Pool Play begins next week.


The young ladies are excited to play against the Nation's best.

"It's good to play against the top competition and see where I stack up against them," says Detert. "There will be college coaches there from Division One and D-3 Schools."

"Being the first girls team to go is exciting," adds Nerva. "Many of the other teams play together all-year long. We don't practice together. So we have to come together and talk to each other when we're playing."
