Carlinville girls basketball opens 2017-18 season

CARLINVILLE (Nov. 16, 2017) - Last year’s Carlinville girls basketball won 18 games en route to a regional title game appearance. While they’ve lost leading scorer and rebounder in Grace Zachary, to graduation, the Cavaliers will look to a group of six seniors and strong depth for success this go around. Zachary accounted for 384 of the team’s 1,311 points last season, and 286 of the team’s 924 rebounds. But it doesn’t mean the cupboard is bare by any means. The Cavaliers opened the season Tuesday at Kincaid South Fork. They are at the Litchfield tournament starting this Saturday.
