Bad Golf

The Silver Streaks boys golf team is practicing Wednesday, trying to work out the kinks after finishing 20th out of 21 teams at Tuesday's tournament at Illinois State University. Hunter Nesselroad led Galesburg by shooting a round of 78, which was good for 24th place. Their next match is scheduled for Saturday at the Macomb Invitational.

The Galesburg boys soccer team makes it's debut Thusday night, as their "meet the Streaks" night will be held at the YMCA field.


The football coaching staffs for Galesburg and Quincy again have decided against attending the Western Big-6 preseason banquet scheduled for next Tuesday in Rock Island. Practice time is already limited by this year's calendar, and it was felt that departing early from practice for a banquet would not be beneficial to the program. The Rock Island Booster Club, which hosts the event, has been notified. It it likely to be the final year of the event, as the new "Midwest 10" conference debuts next season, and will include four Peoria schools.
