The first Danny Mac tournament was held at the Hodag Dome Thursday through Sunday with three eight-team brackets and champions for each bracket.
The Hodags played Thursday night against Boyceville and won 16-1.
The Hodags then played Friday morning against Clintonville who had defeated Goodman-Pembine on Thursday. The Hodags took care of the Truckers, winning 7-4. Addi DeMeyer was the winning pitcher in both of the Hodags first two games.
The wins put the Hodags into the championship game against Marshfield. The Tigers won 10-0, scoring in each inning and only giving up one hit to Abigale Johnson.
The Rhinelander Figure Skating Club held their annual show Friday through Sunday. The theme was “A Night at the Theater.” Eighteen different movie songs were performed as well as a senior solo by Angela Alday. All the skaters were on the ice for the opening and closing songs.
The Hodag soccer team began practice last week and on Friday spent some time shoveling snow off the turf at Mike Webster Stadium. The tennis team used some of their time shoveling the tennis courts as well.
The Hodag baseball team scrimmaged DC Everest Evergreens Sunday in the dome. Both teams used the game to see what their pitchers could do, as there was a different thrower in each inning and the teams batted all the players.
A score was not kept, but DC Everest scored more runs. The Hodags issued too many walks and the Hodags did not hit the ball very well. The Hodags first scheduled games, a double header, are in Wisconsin Rapids on Friday March 31, weather permitting.
