Tonight, it's "Meet the Streaks" night for football and other fall sports, plus the football scrimmages, at Van Dyke Field. Timing has moved up since the original announcements: The Freshmen and Sophomores began scrimmaging at 5:15, and the varsity begins at 6:00. When the varsity game hits halftime, that's time for introducing the GHS cross country, swimming, golf, and tennis squads, and the Gadets. Admission as usual is a 6-pack of sports drink or bottled water.
After tonight's "Meet the Streaks" introductions, the GHS golfers will get some sleep and head to Macomb early in the morning, for the Macomb Invitational, which begins at 8am. Monmouth-Roseville golfers will also be competing in Macomb.
And the GHS girls golf team will be in Rock Falls, for the invitational there which begins at noon.
