Things got tougher for the Blackhawks at the end of the week when Highmore-Harrold came to Woonsocket for a doubleheader on Friday night. It was a hard-fought game with some tensions a little high, but the Blackhawks couldn’t hold on and they gave up the game to the Pirates with a final score of SCW 46, Highmore-Harrold 57.

Highmore-Harrold was a tough foe for the junior varsity boys, as well, but the SCW JV boys ended victorious over the Pirates with a score of 33-30.

On Saturday, Feb. 9, the Blackhawks went up against the Irene-Wakonda Eagles for the DWU Classic at the Corn Palace in Mitchell.
