(WAOW) - There was a lot on the line at the Newman Catholic gymnasium on Tuesday. The undefeated, top-ranked Cardinals hosted their old rivals from Edgar. A win not only clinched the Marawood South championship outright, but also gave head coach Tom Weinkauf his 500th career victory. It took everything that the Cards had, as Edgar came to play. However, in the end, Newman stayed unbeaten with a 53-40 win. After the game, Weinkauf was presented with a commemorative scorebook and the game ball. He deflected all the accolades to the players and assistants who have been part of his teams over the years.
In boys basketball, the Colby Hornets wrapped up at least a share of the Cloverbelt East title with a 75-65 win over Augusta.
On the ice, it's time for sectional semifinals. Wausau West is now just 1 win away from a return to state, thanks to a 4-0 home victory over DC Everest. The Warriors will face Mosinee on Saturday at 2:30 in Stevens Point. The Indians blanked SPASH on Tuesday, 5-0. The Chequamegon/Phillips co-op faced a tall task, visiting top-ranked Eau Claire Memorial. Their season drew to a close in a 9-1 ECM victory.
In girls sectional semifinal play, the Central Wisconsin Storm saw Point/Rapids score the first goal at Greenheck Fieldhouse, but the home team answered strong en rout to an 8-1 win. Next up for the state's #1 team is a Friday night home date with Marshfield, who doubled up Northland Pines 4-2 on Tuesday.
