Rhinelander boys tennis holds conference match
RHINELANDER - The spring sports season will come to a close here in a few weeks. But for the Rhinelander boys tennis team, they're still finding success late in the season.

The Hodags hosted the Great Northern Conference meet this afternoon. Rhinelander tennis is usually known for its winning ways. That's partly because of their coach, Bob Heideman. He's been with the team for over 30 years.

"He's just so willing to work with players. He goes out of his way to help anyone he can. From the bottom to the top, he's always there working with people and making them an all-around good player," said senior, Logan Wild.

Wild is just one of Rhinelander's three seniors. He was a four-year varsity letterman for the Hodags and is going to miss the team a lot.
"The fact that it's going to be ending is bittersweet. It's nice to end it on our home court and finish out the season strong and hopefully come out with a conference victory," said Wild.

The Great Northern Conference title did in fact go to Rhinelander. Antigo came in second and Medford came in third.

" You should really link up with a mentor, someone who knows what they're doing. Someone who can identify the food that you're looking for," says Jerow.

You can find nuts, grapes, and sumac pretty easily this time of year.
