WISCONSIN RAPIDS - When Park Falls high school combined with Glidden back in 2009 - Chequamegon high school was born.
A new school - which meant a chance to establish some new memories and achievements.
Last weekend, the Chequamegon cross country teams did just that.
The state cross country championships is filled with ups and downs. For the Chequamegon boys team, first 'up' was realizing they performed well and serious contenders for a state title.
But then, the 'down' - the Screaming Eagles just missed a state title by two points.
The final up - realizing the team earned Chequamegon's first state trophy in any sport.
"This whole expereince has been amazing," senior Jordan Koski explains. "Just so many awards. I'm just so thankful everyone is recognizing me and my team."
Head coach Mary Patterson adds, "It's the state meet. It's hard - it's tough. Anything can happen down here. Everyone of our boys gutted it out."
The Koski brothers have consistently finished as the top two Chequamegon runners at every meet. Older brother Jordan would finish ahead of Kevin most of the year. But Kevin did beat his brother at state. Their parents are proud of how both handle adversity.
The girls team also made history. They qualified for state the first time. Chequamegon finished ninth.
Park Falls captured the Division 2 state championship back in 1991. Head Coach Mary Peterson just completed her 25th year of coaching.
ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - Do bugs seem to be everywhere in your home, even though there's snow outside? One type of bug in Wisconsin spends the winter inside our houses! They look like Lady Bugs, but they are actually not native to this country.
"They're actually called a multi-colored Asian Lady Beetle. They can be anywhere from a pale yellow to a darker orange and they have black spots on them but you'll see some that don't have spots," says Kerri Ison, UW Oneida County Extension.
RHINELANDER - Our record breaking snow storm left more than 6,000 people across the Northwoods without power.
WPS had to rely on 20 extra crews from Green Bay, Wausau and Menominee to restore power.
But getting to the outages was a challenge.
A representative for WPS says workers are expecting even more outages to be reported.
"Not all of the back roads are plowed yet and that's where a lot of outages are located," said Leah Van Zile, WPS Community Relations leader. "Throughout the day as the temperatures warm, we expect to receive additional calls due to the unloading of snow off of the tree branches."
Eagle River had one of the highest number of customers affected by the outages.
Representatives for WPS say this was one of the hardest winters they've had to deal with.
"We've had some really, really severe wind chills which has really made the temperatures below zero. Typically, only in emergencies do we work in those conditions," said Van Zile. "But pretty much any other time, whether it's a rain storm, a snow storm, a wind storm, our guys are out there working, getting that power back on."
The number of outages dropped below 4,000 since earlier today.
If you're still without power to call 1800-450-7240.
