Even though a Jan. 8 basketball trip to Grand Meadow was postponed due to weather concerns until Jan. 29, the Spring Grove girls hosted two other contests last week – a decisive conference win over Houston and a last-minutes non-league loss to La Crescent.
The Spring Grove boys (11-2) took on three opponents last week, including one from Wisconsin. A fourth contest, hosting Rushford-Peterson, was postponed until Jan. 19.
The Spring Grove girls played only once last week with a Jan. 2 home win over Randolph. The Lions improved to 6-4 overall and remain atop the SEC East with a 6-1 conference record. After the Herald went to press Monday night, the girls hosted Houston.
While most of the Lion boys are playing basketball in the heart of Wisconsin this weekend, one teammate will be punting, passing and place kicking near Puget Sound.
Three games kept the Lady Lions busy last week, winning two league meetings and dropping a non-conference contest. SG (4-4, 4-1 SEC) remained atop the SEC East Division standings.
