- Tuesday was opening night of regionals in girls basketball. Some Northwoods teams actually wait until Friday to begin play. But it was still a busy night on the hardwood.

In Division 2, Lakeland hosted Rhinelander. Lakeland up by 4 at halftime, and led by 10 points in the 3rs quarter. However Rhinelander rallied, as Sydney Smith hit 2 free throws late to give the Hodags a 39-38 win.

Rhinelander travels to Medford on Friday.


In Division 3, Northland Pines has only lost once going into regionals. In fact, the Eagles were orginally awarded the #4 seed and would have played on Friday. However Oconto Falls won an appeal of the pairings.

Northland Pines hosted Tomahawk on Tuesday. After a slow start for both teams, the Eagles proved to be too much. Northland Pines advanced with 49-35 victory. Abby Alft led the Eagles with 13 points.

Northland Pines now travels to Oconto Falls on Friday.

Crandon proved to have little trouble against Crivitz Tuesday night. The Cardinals knocked off Crivitz 48-27. Crandon plays at Coleman on Friday.

PHILLIPS - If more students went to school in their home area, school districts like Phillips would be in a much better financial place. Phillips stands to forgo more than $300,000 in state aid because of open enrollment.

The formal open enrollment window closed last week. About 80 students living in the district will likely attend school somewhere else next school year. Fewer than half of that number will come to Phillips by choice.

With how state funding is calculated, Phillips will lose about $6,600 per student that leaves.
