Northland Pines soccer loses in state semifinals
MILWAUKEE - Northland Pines entered the state semifinal match against Sturgeon Bay having outscored their opponents 18-4 in the playoffs.

They couldn't quite keep that going against the Clippers, though.

Sturgeon Bay started the match by pressuring Eagle goalkeeper Colby Kruse, who had to make some early saves.

That stout defense paid off when Northland Pines got a counter-attack opportunity and scored in the 17th minute off a deflected Brady Snedden shot.

But their joy would be short-lived.

The Clippers scored three straight to end the first half and take a 3-1 advantage at the break.

The Eagles played stout defense in the second half, as the Clippers won 5-1.

"Even before the game we knew it was going to be a tough opponent," senior Liam Oas said. "If we were in this position where we were losing, we weren't going to let them pile on."

"At halftime, I said I don't care what happens," head coach Mark Pinski said. "You keep your heads up, you keep working. And they worked hard like they always do. I'm super, super proud of them."

"I remember freshman year, we always wanted to make it to state because its been since 2007 since we made it to state," Oas said. "This is a great accomplishment for the boys."

CRANDON - A series of bills introduced by Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) would allow all employees who are part of the Wisconsin Retirement System to re-enter the workforce after leaving it.

The School District of Crandon administrator, Larry Palubicki says the bill might receive their support.

"I think it's a bill that we would be in support of to keep high-quality educators after they retire," said Palubicki

Felzkowski said this will not solve the Wisconsin teacher shortage, but it is a step in the right direction.

"This isn't a long term solution; this is to help fill vacancies in the interim until they can find someone," said Felzkowski
