DUQUOIN – The Vandals will begin South Central Conference play this Friday.
Vandalia (2-2) will travel to Gillespie for the conference-opener, before hosting Hillsboro in a conference game next Tuesday. That will double as the team’s home-opener.
“It can’t get here soon enough,” said coach Brian Buscher of the SCC season. “If we keep improving our play and focus, we can be right there (in contention for a title).”
Gillespie is 0-1 in conference play after falling to Carlinville, 65-47.
