In college action, Carl Sandburg travels to Highland, one night after the Chargers picked up their first win of the season over the Monmouth College JV's.
The Galesburg boys golfers are hosting at 3-team event at Bunker Links this afternoon. Peoria Notre Dame and Limestone are in town to compete with the Silver Streaks, who haven't had a meet since last week's impressive 4th place finish at the Normal U-High Invitational.
Also today in boys golf, Williamsfield and Stark County are at Gibson Woods in Monmouth to play against the host United Red Storm.
A senior member of the Knox football team is being recognized by the Midwest Conference as the "Special Teams Player of the Week." Senior kick returner Mike Shroeder (shray dur) piled up 225 return yards, including a 79-yarder for a touchdown, in Saturday's 62-55 loss to Eureka. Shroeder's nine kick returns also sets a school record, albeit a dubious one, because Knox was giving up so many points. Shroeder and his teammates will begin Midwest Conference play this Saturday on the road at St. Norbert in DePere, Wisconsin.
