Tomahawk defeats Prescott 2-1, advances to state title game
MADISON - It took every last out for Tomahawk, but with a tied score and two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Hatchets senior Courtney Theiler stepped to the plate with a runner on third.

"I knew the first pitch she gave me was probably going to be the best one so I was like 'I'm swinging no matter what. If I miss, I miss, I've got two left'," said Theiler.

Theiler did not miss and laced an infield single to the shortstop to score Jordyn Kaminsk, giving Tomahawk a 2-1 win.

"Unreal really, I don't know if I believe it yet," said Theiler.


Whether they believe it or not, the Hatchets will play in their first softball state championship game in 35 years.

Thanks in large part to Theiler's single, and Rachel Dallman's eight strong innings in the circle.

"First inning, I came out a little nervous I'm going to be honest," said Dallman.

After allowing one run in the first, those nerves settled as Dallman held the Prescott Cardinals scoreless the rest of the way.

"It was insane," said Dallman. "Every time I came out I knew I just had to be on and knew my teammates were ready behind me."

Now the Hatchets turn their attention to the state final, but not before they enjoy this accomplishment.

"We're going to love this one for a little while, because that's what we can do, we're going to celebrate," said Head Coach John Larson.

When Saturday comes and that celebration is over, Head Coach John Larson says his players will be re-focused.

"I guarantee you, we as coaches will not have to tell these girls anything. They will be ready to go," said Larson.

Tomahawk will play Poynette in the state championship game on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Starting a new health routine can be intimidating, but easing into the process can do the trick.

Just as balance is key in yoga, it is important to have in your lifestyle, too.

That's a mindset that Laurel Parins lives by.

"Whether that is a twenty minute walk, a class here at the studio… that will make you happier when you're not restricting yourself," says Parins.

She opened Roots Health Studio in Minocqua at the end of May after working in the fitness and nutrition field in Green Bay for some years.

"I really wanted to bring my knowledge of healthy lifestyle-living back to the community I grew up in."

TOWN OF PELICAN - Twisted metal and side-curtain air bags gave a pretty good sense of how bad a crash was Wednesday afternoon, but the Town of Pelican's deputy fire chief already knew he needed to work quickly.

"Time is of the essence," Norm Peterson said.

Peterson's department got the 911 page of a two-car crash on Highway 8 and River Bend Road, about two miles east of Rhinelander, around 12:30 p.m.  The cars both ended up in the ditch on the north side of Highway 8, out of traffic.  Police reduced traffic to one lane while medics treated the injured, but cars were able to still get through in both directions.
