All of the area sporting events scheduled for tonight have been called off due to the cold temperatures. Tomorrow's Galesburg High School schedule shows the boys swim team hosting Rock Island; the girls bowling team goes to Kewanee; and the GHS wrestlers will be at home to Quincy. The fate of those events will also be dictated by the cold weather and any subsequent school cancellations for tomorrow.
The Knox and Monmouth College men's and women's basketball teams will return to Midwest Conference play tomorrow night. Knox will be traveling to Mt. Vernon, Iowa to play the Cornell Rams, while Monmouth will be at home to the Grinnell Pioneers. The Prairie Fire and Fighting Scots men's teams find themselves at the bottom of the conference standings again this year. Meanwhile, the Knox women picked up their second win of the conference season Saturday against Lawrence. Monmouth continues to be in the chase for a playoff spot, as the Lady Scots are a game behind league-leaders Cornell and St. Norbert.
