MEDFORD, Wis. (WSAW) - Medford softball clinched the Great Northern Conference title outright with a win over Antigo, Lakeland girls soccer beat Tomah and Wisconsin Valley Conference boys golf teams compete at a Pine Valley Golf Course.

Medford softball traveled to Antigo with hopes of adding on to their 17-1 record, and to clinch their third straight conference title. The game was scoreless until the seventh inning, when Martha Miller blasted a three-run home run to break the scoreless tie. Antigo still had one more chance, scoring a run in the bottom half of the inning on an error. But Miller struck out the last batter to clinch the conference title with a 3-1 win.

Lakeland girls soccer continued their terrific season with a 2-1 win over Tomah. The Thunderbirds opened the scoring with the help of a Tomah own goal after a Josie Wentlend corner kick. They added another in the second half for a 2-1 win. They are now 11-1 on the season.

On the golf course, the Valley schools are getting a tune-up before postseason playing, playing a leg at Pine Valley Golf Course in Wausau.
