Two girls basketball teams with a combined record of 14-1 will clash tonight at John Thiel Gym, as the undefeated Rock Island Rocks meet the Galesburg Silver Streaks. Rocky is 7-0 overall, and 2-0 in Western Big 6 conference play, while the Streaks are 7-1, and also 2-0 in the conference. Galesburg's only loss is to state-ranked Springfield High back on November 17th. Varsity gametime is scheduled for 7 o'clock, so our pregame coverage should begin at about 6:40 here on WGIL.
The only other girls team in the area scheduled to play tonight is Abingdon, as the Commandos will travel to Illinois Valley Central.
Other athletic events happening this evening include the GHS boys swimming and diving team hosting Moline; the Silver Streaks wrestling team will travel to Macomb; and the girls bowlers are at home to Rock Island at Northgate Lanes.
