Salisbury Hosts Schuyler County in Crucial Lewis and Clark Conference Doubleheader

Top spots in the Lewis & Clark Conference will be battled for on Friday night when Salisbury welcomes Schuyler County to town for courtwarming. Both the Lady Panthers and Lady Rams enter play tied at the top of the standings at 6-0. The Lady Panthers enter the game on an eleven-game winning streak. Their last loss came in the third place game of their own tournament against Cairo on January 7th. Head coach Barry Graskewicz says it’s big for his young team to play in a game like this.
