After a short break the girls and boys basketball teams and wrestling team will rush toward 2011 locked in competition.

Starting Monday, Dec. 27, the girls basketball team will take the short trip up U.S. Route 4 and enter tournament competition in Whitehall.

The Granville Golden Horde girls basketball squad will face Hanover, N.H., in Whitehall for the Holiday Varsity Tournament opener with play on Tuesday, Dec. 28, at 3 or 4:30 p.m.
