A new sport in the NorthwoodsSubmitted: 07/13/2013
Story By Marisa Silvas

MINOCQUA - When you hear stick, mask and goal you may think of hockey. But there is a similar sport gaining popularity that you can play in the summer and a group in Minocqua is trying to spread the word.

Will Jeffrey founded the Northwoods Lacrosse Company and is offering camps and clinics to help the sport grow in Northern Wisconsin.

Today several members of the Minocqua Aqua-Bats and their friends took the field to learn lacrosse and play in a friendly game. Jeffrey held a clinic yesterday for 5th and 6th graders to teach the basics.

He played collegiately and wants others to have the same opportunity.

EAGLE RIVER - As the weather changes, some trails in the Northwoods need to be groomed.

The Three Eagle Trail runs more than 12 miles from Three Lakes to Eagle River. Volunteers are getting the trail ready for the spring and summer. Once snow melts, the trail has to dry before crews can clean it up.

"We do the cleanup in May, about the middle of May," said Three Eagle Trail Foundation President Tom Rulseh. "The trail is pretty dried out and started to firm up a little bit better. And then the grading we try the schedule in June."
