GCL South Hoops, Wrestling On As Scheduled Tonight


Posted on 2/20/2015 at 12:52 p.m.

The final night of play in the GCL South basketball regular season and the GCL Freshman/Junior Varsity Wrestling Championships, also slated to be held  this evening at St. Xavier High School, are on as scheduled.  The annual wrestling tournament, which features member schools from both the GCL South and the GCL Co-Ed divisions, is set to begin with first-round matches at 5:15 p.m.

In basketball, La Salle travels to Elder and St. Xavier is at Moeller tonight.  Freshman games begin at 4:30, followed by the Junior Varsity at 6, and the Varsity at 7:30.  La Salle (17-4, 4-1 GCL South) has a chance to win the GCL South varsity championship outright with a win, while victories by Elder (19-2, 3-2) and Moeller (13-8, 3-2) would mean a three-way tie (between Elder, La Salle and Moeller) in the standings.

The GCL Varsity Wrestling Championships are scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, but a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the region beginning at 7 tonight and lasting until 7 p.m. Saturday.  The National Weather Service says as much as five inches of snow and ice accumulation is possible.  Please check the site later this afternoon/early evening for any updates about the GCL Varsity Wrestling Championships.
