This year’s “veterans class” includes: Jack Whitman from 1949; Duane White from 1958; and Roland McDougald from 1968. The “friend of GHS athletics” inductee will be former WGIL Station Manager Roger Coleman of Galesburg.
Plus, the Hall of Fame committee voted to have a one-time induction for all the remaining GHS teams that have earned state trophies, including: the 1912 and 1931 boys basketball teams; the 1971 boys golf team; the 2000 and 2001 girls basketball teams; and the 1971 boys golf team.
The induction ceremony took place in the GHS Auditorium. You can listen to the ceremony in its entirety here:
The Galesburg Silver Streaks boys basketball team made pretty easy work of two opponents at their own Thanksgiving tournament Friday, defeating Limestone in the afternoon game 73-46, and then East Peoria at night 68-28.
The GHS Silver Streaks boys beat the East Peoria Raiders 68-28. GHS took an early lead and held onto that lead throughout the game. By the end of the third quarter, the score sat at 61-23 Streaks causing continuous clock to be enacted for the fourth quarter. This win makes the Streaks 3-0 so far for the season and the Raiders are 2-2. The Streaks will play again tomorrow morning (11/29) against Peoria Notre Dame with pre-game set for 10:40 and tip off at 11. Then at 3pm tomorrow we have the GHS Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony followed by a Girls game against Peoria Christian with a pre-game of 6:10 and tip off at 6:30, and then another boys game against Pekin for the boys’ Thanksgiving Tournament with pre-game at 8:00 and tip off at 8:20. So a full day basketball tomorrow to round off the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.
