Because of the Christmas holiday and final exams for county high school students, the sports schedule is fairly light this week.

On Tuesday, the Lady Norse of Northfield host Caston, the Lady Apaches of Wabash host Oak Hill and the Lady Knights of Southwood travel over to Bluffton for non-conference matchups. On the boys’ side, only one game is on the docket with Northfield traveling to Southern Wells.

The weekend offers an intriguing slate of games. On Friday, the Manchester boys and girls teams travel to Southwood for an evening of basketball that fans love.
