The Galesburg Silver Streaks baseball team will make up their doubleheader with United Township Tuesday afternoon at 4pm. The key Western Big 6 matchup was postponed on Saturday due to rain at Jim Sundburg Field. The Silver Streaks remain in the hunt for the conference title, depending on the results of Alleman's twinbill at Quincy Tuesday. Alleman leads Galesburg by one game in the league standings. The Streaks regularly scheduled game against Peoria Notre Dame Tuesday has been cancelled to make way for the conference doubleheader.

Elsewhere on the baseball schedule, Knoxville plays at the Prairieland Conference tournament Monday, and United travels to Annawan/Wethersfield. Monmouth-Roseville's scheduled game at Brimfield has been cancelled.


The Galesburg softball team will be very busy this week, beginning with a trip to Washington Monday for a game with the Panthers. The Silver Streaks will follow that with a doubleheader Tuesday at East Moline. In other softball games around the area, United hosts West Central Monday, and Galva/Williamsfield welcomes Stark County.


In track and field, the Western Big-6 Conference girls meet is being held in Galesburg Monday afternoon, while the Knoxville boys and girls are among the teams running in the Prairieland Conference meet in Rushville.
