All GHS Athletic Events Cancelled

WGIL Newsroom . Local Sports 2191

Galesburg Silver StreaksIt’s been known for some time, but was made official today:  anything related due to athletics at Galesburg High School has been cancelled for now.

The GHS Athletic office says all Galesburg High School scheduled sports, practices, contests, and extra-curricular activities have been cancelled.  They say the cancellation will be in effect “until further notice.”

By law, athletics cannot go on if teachers in the school district are on strike.  Teachers  began walking the picket lines today after a contract accord wasn’t reached by a Tuesday deadline.
