“The Great Northern Conference (GNC) was really good this year,” Gerstenberger stated. “We had three teams that won their respective regional tournaments – Lakeland in D1, and Mosinee and Medford in D2. We also had three other teams advance to the next round. Six sectional qualifying teams and one individual has not happened as far as I can remember.”
