STEVENS POINT - Believe it or not, sectionals are going on in several sports. That's despite a long winter.
One team going is Wausau East. The Lumberjack boys tennis team won their sectional for just the second time ever.
Stevens Point hosted the D-1 sectional on Wednesday.
The last time Wausau East won the team title was 1995.
#2 singles player Simeon Nikolov won the sectional and is off to Madison. Also qualifying were Conrad Felton at #1 singles, and East's #1 doubles team of Justin Strom and Gunthar Reising.
Other D-1 qualifiers include Antigo's #2 doubles. Joe Novak and Brian Bartletti won their sectional. Bradley Leutschwager from Stevens Point is also in at #1 singles. The #1 doubles for SPASH also headed to Madison. Trenton Seegert and Noah Meier make up SPASH's #1 doubles team.

RHINELANDER - It costs nearly $240,000 to run Rhinelander's homeless shelter every year.
Frederick Place got an extra boost this month to help cover those costs with two grants totaling $8,000.
"With our just shy of $240,000 annual operating budget, we typically only get $40,000 from the state and federal government. So we are raising that $200,000 every single year," said NATH Executive Director Tammy Modic.
IRMA - Until Thursday, we never got an inside look at Lincoln Hills School and Youth Prison. We have heard from Lincoln Hills line staff and the Department of Corrections, but never were able to see the facility.
Thursday the DOC held a guided media tour of the school and living units. Newswatch12's Rose McBride has been following the stories that come out of Lincoln Hills for months now, and she went on that media tour.
