Altoona girls readying for conference tilt against the Blackhawks

Jan. 16—Things didn't go quite the way the Altoona girls basketball team had hoped in a 58-45 road loss to Fall Creek Monday evening.

However, there's little time to focus on the past as the squad is now preparing for a top Middle Border Conference showdown against Baldwin-Woodville at Altoona High School Thursday night. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
