Snow alters Saturday's prep scheduling

Chargers outlast Maroons in matchup of Unit 4 'friendly' competitors

CHAMPAIGN — When Centennial and Champaign Central meet up in the pool, the atmosphere tends to be different from that of some other sports.

Doesn't mean Grimes and his Charger pals can't enjoy spoiling the Maroons' senior night.
