Here’s a look at today’s sport scheduleLegion
The Monmouth American Legion baseball team won’t have far to travel as they come to Galesburg tonight for a doubleheader with Post 285. The games will be played at H.T. Custer Park (beginning at 5pm). Galesburg is trying to bounce back from a pair of losses to East Moline last evening. Coach Steve Cheeseman reports that it was the first time Galesburg has been swept in a doubleheader at home in 10 years. They will take a record of 16-10 into tonight’s games with Monmouth.
Galesburg track standout Josh Eiker will be departing this week for the Junior Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Oregon, where he will compete in the 200-meter dash. The Galesburg High School junior finished second in the state meet last month with a time of 21.28 seconds. Eiker will be accompanied by GHS boys track coach Craig Hillier, and both of them will be joining us tomorrow morning at 8:10 on the WGIL Morning News.
