Regional volleyball action continued on Thursday evening. Wausau East defeated D.C. Everest, 3-1, to advance to the second round of the Division 1, Sectional 1 regionals. The Lumberjacks will face either Wausau West or Merrill on Saturday.
In other playoff contests, both Marathon and Newman Catholic swept their respective opponents to move on to Saturday's final round of regionals, before the sectional portion of the postseason takes place.
In boys' soccer, Wausau East's season came to an end, losing to Hudson, 1-0.
And while neither Wausau West nor Wisconsin Rapids made the playoffs, they still played some Week 9 football as the Warriors visited the Raiders on Thursday night. West was looking to rebound after its stinging last-minute loss to crosstown-rival Wausau East last week.
The Warriors, however, only put up one touchdown on the board and eventually lost to the Raiders, 23-6.
