The Rhinelander Hodags boys tennis team clinched the Great Northern Conference on Friday before the meet even started.
The seedings and points tallied during the season made it so Rhinelander won the tournament before they even hit a ball.
"Some years we've done it easier than others. Freshman year was not easy at all, but every time we've done it, I think the time and effort put in definitely pays off. It's proof to the testament of Coach Heideman and our program, how much work we put in," said senior Markus Johnson.
The Hodags have now won the title seven out of the last eight years.
That means the senior class has won conference all four years.
This season was Head Coach Bob Heideman's 31st year with the team.
Heideman says the countless titles during his time are all because of the commitment of his team.
"The first thing is that I try to scare them as far as how good the competition is going to be; that if they don't work hard, it's not going to come," said Heideman.
