Comments from Al Woodridge, Lumberjack Conference Commissioner:
The Lumberjack Conference has now come to a close after 50 years in northern Wisconsin. As commissioner for the past 14 years, it has been my privilege to work with all the fine principals, athletic directors, coaches, officials and media throughout these many years.
My greatest experience was associating with all of the great athletes who I have had the honor to watch and present with their conference championship medals and team trophies. Seeing the smiles on their faces was a joy.
I wish the new Great Northern Conference and commissioner Scott Winch all the luck in the world and continued success to all those representing northern Wisconsin in WIAA sports programs.
