Game of the week: Springs vs. Brook
By L. Scott Hainline
With Clear Creek, Clear Springs and Clear Lake holding down the top-three positions, Clear Brook is trying to stay within reach of Dickinson for the fourth-and-final playoff berth in District 24-5A.
A Clear Brook victory at Clear Springs would be huge for the Lady Wolverines, who were swept by Dickinson in district and need a little help to qualify for the postseason.
