Galesburg Silver StreaksSome of the Galesburg High School Silver Streaks spring sports were hoping to do at least some work at home this season despite ongoing Master Facilities Plan work, but that’s looking more and more to be not the case.

It was already known that the GHS track team wouldn’t be at home this year because of ongoing construction of the new football and track fields, but GHS Athletic Director Ralph Henning says even practice is a problem because of the harsh winter we’ve had.
