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. High school basketball is a bargain, but in this case, twice the action for the price! The other matchup is at Coolman Gym where the Apaches will host Northfield.
There are three games on the slate for Saturday evening. In boys action, Manchester sets sail for Leo and Southwood travels to Peru. The lone girls contest, Wabash travels a couple of miles north the take on the Lady Norse in TRC action where the Harness Brothers will bring you all of the exciting action on Wabash WebTV at around 7 p.m.
The only games between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays are the games contained within the Wabash County Tourney. It will be held at Wabash High School on Friday & Saturday Dec. 27 & 28. The JV games begin at 9 a.m. both days. The varsity pairings for Day 1 in Coolman Gym are as follows:
Northfield Girls vs. Wabash Girls at 3 p.m.
