Girls basketball: Hodags win season opener
Height does not necessarily mean a win as the Merrill girls found out when they visited Rhinelander for a game Thursday. The Bluejays had much more height than the Hodags but the speed and pressure defense of the Hodags provided the girls with their season opening win defeating Merril 64-54.
Kenedy VanZile scored 30 points continuing where she left off last season leading the Hodags.
