Our basketball teams start the back half of their conference season with the longest road trip of the year – to Colorado and Louisiana this weekend. While the winter sports season heads into its final quarter, our spring sports are all getting ready to start their respective seasons. For a preview of Schreiner Baseball, please go to the Athletics website (http://athletics.schreiner.edu). More spring sports previews to come next month.
