Congratulations to the TLG high school basketball teams on the completion of another fun season. While the boys' team season ended during district play; the girls' team went on to compete in regionals competition at Spokane last weekend. TLG girls squared off against Colton at regionals -- and their goal to play at the state tournament was stymied by a 19 to 92 loss to Colton. Glenwood students who competed on the TLG basketball teams include Dakota Jones, Ashley Sampson, Jaylin Throop and Jonathon Throop. Thanks to each of these players for representing GHS on the basketball court this year.
