OnFocus Team of the Week, February 13 – February 19
- Wausau East Girls Basketball – The Lumberjacks defeated Merrill 47-38 for their first Wisconsin Valley Conference since 2010. The win snapped a 141 game WVC losing streak, with the last win coming against Rhinelander in March of 2010.
- Pittsville Girls Basketball / Port Edwards Girls Basketball – In the final regular season game of CWC foes Pittsville and Port Edwards, legendary Coach Don Neve, who coached at both schools, was honored for his contributions and achievements to both schools. Pittsville won the game, and a 50-50 raffle generated proceeds for a scholarship at Pittsville that will benefit students long-term.
