Hawks have busy week on the basketball court


The Colman-Egan Hawks held three doubleheader basketball games last week, one on the road and two at home.
The boys had a tough go playing against two highly ranked Class B teams, Castlewood and DeSmet, but picked up a win over Garretson. The girls took a loss to Garretson but regrouped and defeated the Warriors and the Bulldogs.
Three games are upcoming this week. The teams hosted a doubleheader with Bridgewater-Emery on January 30.
Then on Thursday, the boys travel to Estelline-Hendricks and Friday evening, the girls team heads north to take on the Redhawks. Next Monday, a doubleheader with Baltic will be held in the Colman-Egan gym.
