The Spring Grove girls had both of last week's basketball games postponed due to weather. The road trip to Glenville-Emmons was made up on Tuesday of this week (Jan. 21) after the Herald went to press. The highly anticipated home game versus state-ranked undefeated Lyle/Pacelli has been rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 27.

Just after the Herald went to press on Monday, the Lions (9-3, 8-0 SEC) lost a late lead and fell at Class AA La Crescent 53-47. On the following night, the Lions (10-3, 9-0 SEC) grilled Glenville-Emmons 84-15. Complete coverage will be in next week's Herald.
