State Semifinals in Sight for Galesburg High School Baseball Squad
Galesburg High School's baseball team is focused on making its first trip to state in over two decades.

The Silver Streaks (26-13) have that opportunity Monday in the Class 3A Rock Island Supersectional against DeKalb. The Barbs, a member of the Western Sun Conference, enter play with a 25-10 record. Monday's Elite Eight match-up is at 5 p-m at Augustana College. The winner moves on to the state semifinals.

Galesburg beat Streator 10-8 over the weekend in the East Peoria Sectional for the program's first sectional title since 1989, which is also the last time a GHS baseball team advanced to state. DeKalb defeated Aurora Marmion Academy 6-5 in the DeKalb Sectional.

The winner will play in the state semifinals Friday at Noon at Joliet's Silver Cross Field against the winner of the Naperville Supersectional. That match-up has Woodstock Marian going up against LaGrange Park Nazareth Academy.
