29 Hodags make fall All-GNC teams

The Great Northern Conference on Monday released its all-conference teams for the 2019 fall sports season.

A total of 29 Rhinelander High School student-athletes received all-conference recognition, including eight first-team selections.

The Hodag football team led the way with 11 all-conference honorees, followed by the girls' tennis team with 10. The Hodag boys' soccer team had six honorees. Both the cross country and volleyball programs had one honoree.

All-conference teams for football, boys' soccer and volleyball were the result of votes taken during the GNC fall coaches' meeting held last Wednesday in Tomahawk. The all-conference teams in cross country and girls' tennis were based on performances in each sport's conference meet.

The all-conference girls' swimming team will be determined at this Friday's conference meet in Stevens Point.
