Grand Meadow could be looking for revenge Tuesday when it visits Lyle-Pacelli. The Superlarks saw their season end with a 60-37 loss in the Class 1A, Section 1 semifinals to the Athletics a year ago.
Grand Meadow has finished second in the Southeast Conference West Division standings for six straight seasons, with Lyle-Pacelli being the team the Superlarks have had to look up at each time. A victory for Grand Meadow in this regular-season matchup could indicate a changing of the guard atop the conference leaderboard.
It’s improbable that defending Class 1A state champion Lyle-Pacelli can replicate last season's 25-1 record, but the Athletics (10-3, 3-0) can continue dominating their conference, where they've won 58 straight — a streak that started on Jan. 24, 2012 with a win over Grand Meadow.
Olivia Christianson and her 24.4 ppg will be looking to help Lyle-Pacelli make it 59 consecutive division victories.
