TOMAHAWK - As we first told you on Wednesday, weather conditions forced several changes to the upcoming seasons for the Great Northern Conference.

On Thursday morning, GNC Commishioner Scott Winch sent out a memo outlining the changes.

Golf Any of the seven conference meets that are canceled due to weather will not be made up.

Track Invites will not be made up, Conference Meet will still take place in Antigo on May 16th.


Girls Soccer 2nd round of scheduled games will count towards the conference standings. The second round starts on May 2nd for girls soccer. Any games played prior to this will be considered non-conference events.

Baseball/Softball Double headers (will start at 5:00) will be scheduled on the second round conference dates. If all seven schools play all twelve conference games then conference champion will be determined by the records of the schools in those games. In the event that all seven schools don't play all twelve games, due to weather, the first game played against another school will be counted as the conference game.

May 11th will be set aside as a make up day for softball, Medford and Antigo have agreed to be host sites if schools need to play more than one team on that day. Teams that play at each of these sites will split the cost of umpires equally.

May 18th will be set aside as a makeup day for baseball, Antigo and Tomahawk have agreed to be host sites if schools need to play more than one team on that day. Teams that play at each of these sites will split the cost of umpires equally.

The Athletic Directors met with Winch Wednesday in Tomahawk. The meeting took about three hours, going over all possible scenarios.

Although all of the schools in the GNC are effected, Northland Pines, Lakeland, and Rhinelander were considered to be in the worst shape for their athletic fields. Rhinelander's Hodag Park alone had around 12 inches of snow on their baseball diamond.

Ten high school students from Price and Taylor counties travel to NTC in Phillips three days a week.

"They will be graduating from Northcentral Technical College with their degree in Gas Metal Arc Welding and it will probably be about a week before they graduate high school," says NTC Phillips Dean Bobbi Damrow.

Walker looking at 6 to 7 agencies for changesSubmitted: 12/17/2014

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker says he's looking at consolidating or making ``major changes'' at six or seven state agencies.

Walker talked in general about his ideas for merging state government operations on Wednesday after speaking to Senate Republicans.

Walker says he doesn't think a special session will be necessary to do that, but he does hope the Legislature will act quickly on the ideas early on. He says he learned from the creation of public-private economic development agency that it's better to have more time to transition into something new than not.
