It took more than a month, but the Steelville High School varsity boys are the champions of the Owensville basketball tournament.
For the third year in a row, the Steelville varsity girls basketball team has captured the championship of the Newburg tournament. The Lady Cardinals brought home the first-place trophy by beating the home team in a thrilling championship game on Saturday afternoon.
After a pair of regular season wins and finally finishing the Owensville tournament (see related story), the Steelville High School varsity boys basketball team is 18-2 overall and 2-0 in Gasconade Valley Conference (GVC) play. The Cardinals have just four games left in the regular season, all against GVC opponents.
The Steelville High School varsity girls basketball team earned a non-conference win at Potosi on January 29 to move to 13-4 on the season. The Lady Cardinals, who are playing in the Newburg tournament this week, are also 2-0 in Gasconade Valley Conference (GVC) play with three games remaining.
The varsity boys basketball team at Steelville High School is sitting on a 13-2 record after earning a pair of non-conference victories last week over Newburg and Salem. The Cardinals will not play their first Gasconade Valley Conference game until Friday, when they host Bourbon at 5:30 p.m. for homecoming.
