LAONA - A young Northwoods basketball star earned a state championship. And she is just 10-years old.
On Saturday, Elizabeth Krawze of Laona won the state-championship at the Knights of Columbus Free Throw Contest in Wisconsin Rapids. She won the 10-year old girls crown.
She qualified for state after competing in Laona, Crandon, and De Pere earlier this year.
She made 21 out of 30 - free throws - including a perfect 5-for-5 in an extra shootout round.
She is on cloud nine after winning the trophy.
"It was interesting," Elizabeth explains. "When I heard I won, I ran to my mom and started crying. I was nervous - my legs were shaking. But it's all fun and games. I like competing and playing with other people by just concentrating and not worrying about how many shots I made. It's about having fun."
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
