The Spring Grove girls open the 2017-18 basketball season with three home games followed by a trio of road contests. The lid-lifter is this coming Tuesday, Nov. 28, with SG hosting Schaeffer Academy. There will be no B-team game, but a 6 p.m. junior high contest will precede the 7:15 p.m. varsity tipoff.

It will be the first of two conference games versus those other Lions as Schaeffer moves over to the SEC East Division to replace Hope Lutheran, which has dropped its conference membership. The Spring Grove girls have won all 15 games versus Schaeffer Academy.

The Lions then face another SEC East rival as Lanesboro visits on Friday, Dec. 1.

Look for the season preview article and the complete schedule in next week’s Herald.
