Janae Antosch leads Mosinee volleyball's title defense
MARATHON - Six seniors on Mosinee's volleyball team graduated at the end of last season, including three all-conference players.

That leaves even more responsibility for Mosinee's all-conference setter, Janae Antosch.

As Janae tries to lead Mosinee to another conference title, she'll have some help from her sister and coach, Aubree.


"It's really interesting because I can talk to her as my sister while she's coaching me, which can help me understand the game better," Janae said.

Aubree also played volleyball at Mosinee before continuing her career at St. Norbert College.

And ever since middle school, Janae has been paying attention to her sister's lessons.

"She's been to all my games and now I get to go to hers, which is really awesome," Aubree said.

Janae serves as her team's primary setter, although she also gets to wear several different hats during the season.

"Just the way we set up defense, it gives me lots of opportunities for digs," Janae said.

Monday night, Janae focused on setting her teammates up, leading them to a two-set victory over Edgar.

"She reminds me a lot of myself because she's very determined at what she does and she's always working to be the best player she can be," Aubree said.

The task will get harder during the year, but Janae looks forward to taking on the challenge with her teammates.

"Including everyone and having fun all the time, that's what got us to where we were," Janae said.

Mosinee will play a tournament at UW-Oshkosh to open its season August 21.

- A lot is happening underwater while Wisconsin is transitioning from summer, to fall, and winter.

But we don't really see those changes. Though we might be getting out of the water, fish can still thrive in the colder temperatures.

DNR Fisheries Supervisor John Kubisiak explains exactly how.

"These fish have been around for millions of years so they've had a long time to deal with these annual temperature cycles of course," Kubisiak said.

In the fall, a lake's temperature gets closer and closer to freezing.

Fish are cold-blooded. Meaning, their environment's temperature controls their body temperature. Kubisiak said the reason why the lake temperature is such a big issue is because that drives their metabolic processes.

How exactly do the fish prepare for the cold weather?

He held a rally Thursday evening in Mosinee, in central Wisconsin, an area of the state that shifted dramatically toward Republicans in 2016, enabling Trump to overcome even greater deficits in urban and suburban parts of the state.
