Chequamegon boys get historic trophy; SPASH boys win
WISCONSIN RAPIDS - The best cross country athletes competed at the state championships in Wisconsin Rapids.

And two area teams earned hardware.

Boys and girls in three divisions competed at the Ridges Golf Course. They had to battle some light rain and cool conditions.

In the Boys Division One race, Stevens Point proved to be too much. The Panthers captured their 10th state title. The last one was in 2008.


But the big story, one Northwoods team made history. After finishing third last year, Chequamegon earned their first trophy in any sport.

First, Kevin Koski finished 10th for the Screaming Eagles, followed closely by his brother Jordan in 12th place and Cameron Person in 17th place.

When the points were tallied - Chequamegon just missed a state championship by 2 points. However, getting the state-runner up title is pretty amazing.

Individual honors include, in D-3 girls Natalie Miller of Three Lakes on the left and Amherst's Alissa Niggemann battled for 6th, Niggemann gets it - Miller finishes 7th.

In Division Two boys - Tomahawk's Bryon Tomek capped off his fourth trip to state with a 9th place finish. He finally gets to go on the podium.

We have a link for all of the results below.

We'll also have more on the championships next week.

RHINELANDER - Our nervous system controls the whole show when it comes to our bodies, especially how they feel.

Chiropractic care is one method people use to keep that system moving.

Hometown Chiropractic is new to Rhinelander, but it's no stranger to the Northwoods; its main location is in Tomahawk.

People might think traumas like slipping on ice or car accidents are the only reasons to see a chiropractor.

Dr. Grace Zuiker Nash says you don't need to be injured to come in.

"We want to get those misalignments checked. Sometimes they don't show up as a major pain symptom.

They show up as something smaller and less obvious," says Dr. Grace.

Dr. Grace says she sees babies as soon as one day old.

That's because nervous system issues should be treated sooner rather than later.

"We as adults know that they don't feel good. We want the best for our kids and we don't want to see them go through that," says Dr. Grace.

Hometown Chiropractic always accepts new patients.
