Hodags, Pines advance to sectional finals
RHINELANDER - The Hodag girls soccer team has never made it to the state tournament.

A year ago, Rhinelander reached the Division 1 sectional semifinals. Rhinelander was shutout by D.C. Everest on the road.

Thursday night, Hodags were playing their final home game. This time, it was Marshfield in Rhinelander in the Division Two section semifinals.

And Rhinelander jumped on the board early and often.

Sydney Zettler and Liz Krug combined for all seven goals in Rhinelander's 7-0 victory.


Rhinelander faces River Falls Saturday afternoon for the sectional final in Wausau. Game time at Wausau East High School is at 4:30pm.

You can watch the highlights in the video above.

In Division Three, Northland Pines faced West Salem on the road. Eagles with a 3-1 victory. Eagles will face Ashland on Saturday in that sectional final scheduled for 1pm in Chippewa Falls.

In Division One, D.C. Everest knocked off Stevens Point 4-1. Evergreens take on Appleton North on Saturday.

ANTIGO - You won't find any pesticide sprays at one Antigo apple orchard, but you will find pigs.

Grandview Orchard and Nursery Stock sits on the highest point in Langlade County.

Lisa Rettinger bought the orchard two years ago with the plan to manage it naturally.

She's still in the transition process of going organic, but she doesn't use chemical pesticides.

Orchard pigs do some grazing and eat wind-fallen apples.

Solo cups and milks gallons make for moth and maggot traps.

Lisa does most of the work by herself every day; much of her work is observation of the orchard.

"Going through the orchard, what is going on, monitoring pest traps, and looking at the leaves, looking at the whole orchard," says Lisa.

Grandview's season will be done at the end of the month.

You can find Lisa at the Wausau Indoor Farmers Market through the winter.
