8th Grade Eagles Win Sectional Advance to Elite 8

There was a victory parade Wednesday night in Mulberry Grove. The Mulberry Grove 8th grade Eagles basketball team won the sectional Wednesday night beating Sigel St. Michael’s near Effingham 34-32. It was a hard-fought game with a close score throughout. The Eagles will play this Saturday, February 14, at 2:30 p.m., in Limestone High School in Bartonville, near Peoria, in the Elite 8. The Eagles will play Maternity BVM Catholic School from Boubonnais Illinois. Parents, grandparents, fans, and a Mulberry Grove Fire Engine met the Eagles players’ bus between Mulberry Grove and Vandalia last night about 10:00 o’clock and paraded the team into and through Mulberry Grove to the school. Congratulations to the Eagles and we wish you the very best Saturday.
