Local Sports

PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Area high schools turned it on in the “Lights For The Fight” movement Friday night.

They turned on the lights over their athletic fields for twenty minutes starting at 8:20 p.m. to honor the graduating class of 2020 and essential workers on the front lines of the battle against COVID-19. The lights were flipped on at 20 minutes past eight because that is 2020 military time.
