Salem Travels to Effingham TonightThe Salem Wildcats have three regular season games remaining
before post-season play begins, and after tonight, just one more week remains
in the regular season.
The Wildcats are on the road tonight for their
second-to-last Apollo Conference game of the season as they take on the
Effingham Flaming Hearts. Effingham sits atop the league with a 7-1 conference
record, and a win tonight will give Effingham High School an Apollo Conference

scoring 55 points over Salem’s previous two games, including 24 in Salem’s loss
earlier this week to the hot-shooting Olney Tigers. Olney hit ten tree-pointers
in the Tuesday night contest to win 64-50.
Salem’s last win came on the road at Paris on January 25,
and the Cats lost 71-44 in their previous meeting with Effingham back on
