In area non-conference play tonight the North Linn girls and boys teams travel to Edgewood to take on former Tri-Rivers conference foe Ed-Co.
The North Linn girls are one our area squads who are ranked early on this season. The Lynx are number 8 in class 2A and are continuing their outstanding play after a record of 22-2 last season. They are 3-0 this year and have won their games by a combined score of 122 points with their closest win being 34 points. The first half of their schedule has the Lynx playing 6 of the first 8 on the road, tenth-year head coach Brian Wheatley says that will be a challenge coupled with the fact that they will see some new teams with expanded TRC this season:
The girls varsity game gets under way at 6:15pm this evening at Ed-Co high school with the boys to follow.
