This winter, the Southeastern Indiana Conference has grown to 12 teams. Because of that increase and the size of the bowling alleys, the SIC has been divided into divisions (those with girls and those without). Seymour and Trinity are in Division 1, and Crothersville is in Division 2.
On Saturday, Seymour and Trinity will compete at Broadview Bowl in Bedford, and Crothersville is at Columbus.
