|Local Sports Schedule 9/4/12
The local sports schedule has been light for the past three days, not only because of the Labor Day holiday, but also because of the rain which washed out most of the outdoor activities to start the weekend. One of the casualties was the Galesburg Cross-Country Invitational, but it has been rescheduled for Tuesday at Lake Storey. Galesburg High School athletic director Ralph Henning said in a press release that they realize some teams won't be able to make it, but that any who could work it into their schedules are welcome to come.
The Silver Streaks girls golfers return to the course Tuesday afternoon, as they travel to East Peoria to compete in a three-team event that also includes Bartonville Limestone. In boys golf, Monmouth-Roseville is at Orion, and Williamsfield plays at Ridgewood.
The Galesburg girls swimming and diving team will try to build on Saturday's victory at the Macomb Invitational, as they host Rock Island Tuesday at Mustain Pool.
The Monmouth-Roseville volleyball team is at home to Sherrard Tuesday night. The Titans topped Abingdon last week, and hope to continue this season's improvement against the Tigers.
In college action, Carl Sandburg plays host to the Monmouth College JV's, while Knox is on the road at Iowa Wesleyan.
