Hodags, Pines, Crandon Win Regional Openers
- 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.

EAGLE RIVER -  Several Northwoods schools wanted to make it clear to their students Wednesday, there's always someone there to talk to.
Anti-Bullying and suicide prevention speaker Bob Lenz spoke at Three Lakes and Northland Pines high schools Wednesday.
Northland Pines Dean of Students Josh Tilley said he hopes students walk away from the talk knowing they can reach out to at least one person when they feel alone.

"Over the last few years, we've been bringing speakers in, national, local and state speakers so that we can really help our students understand that if they feel different they have the opportunity to be an individual, but if it's hurting them they can get help," said Tilley.
Northland Pines staff members recently looked closely at their relationships with students by reviewing class rosters.
They want to make sure all students have support.

For the past few weeks, Barnett has stared at and studied the faces of Rhinelander Police Chief Lloyd Gauthier, and two of his predecessors Michael Steffes and Glenn Parmeter.

"It's quite creepy if you go up to someone and tell them that," said Barnett with a laugh.
