WGEM Sports At Ten: “Sports Extra” For Friday (August 16)

In this special Friday night edition of “Sports Extra”, we take a look at the Quincy University Hawks football team in their first scrimmage of fall camp, plus we

check in on the Leathernecks of Western Illinois who continue to play host to a few very special visitors from the pro ranks.

Our “Gridiron Preview” freight train pulls into Macomb, to check in on the Bombers as they prepare for their season opener in the prep football ranks.

The WGEM Sports Team also has updates from North Shelby High, Palmyra, Camp Point Central, and Quincy where the Blue Devils are set to break out the big boy pads.

On the prep soccer front, we pay a visit on the reigning Class 1A State Champions from Quincy Notre Dame where the Raiders are gearing up for another big season.

All those stories plus an update from the Major League Baseball ranks are packed in this fun-filled “highlight reel” geared to help you start your weekend off on

a positive note as we continue to countdown to the start of another exciting college and prep football season across the entire Tri-States.
