Alyssa Ellis of the Hodags was eighth on the balance beam. Nikki Ellis won the
event.

Lakeland's Maddy Melms finished sixth on the floor exercise. Sara Krueger of
Rhinelander won the floor event.

Lakeland won the meet 107.9 to 97.3. It was Lakeland's highest score of the
season. Haley Farrell of the T-Birds was the all-around winner.


Meanwhile, in boys hockey, state-ranked Antigo added to their 15-game unbeaten
streak. In a rematch from Monday night, Antigo shutout Rhinelander 6-0 for the
second straight game.

Antigo's Alex Nagel scored the first goal of the game in the opening minute.
His shot from just inside the Hodag blue line scored.

Nagel later set up Blake Kirsh for their second goal.

Arin VerHagen scored shortly after a Red Robins power play ended to make it 3-0.

Antigo closes the regular season hosting Mosinee on Thursday.

Hodags begin regionals next week at Mosinee on Tuesday.
