Railroaders continue on track by pummeling Amery

Feb. 4—ALTOONA — The Railroaders girls basketball team continues to soar in the regular season as post-season play gets ever so closer.

In a display of defensive prowess, the Railroaders got a 50-29 win over Amery on the road Saturday night to not only continue their winning ways, but to also move into a three-way tie at the top of the Middle Border Conference standings for the first time since they joined the conference three years ago.
