SATURDAY PREVIEW

90 total games take place on Saturday. The first swim-off for Illinois teams actually takes place in Florida, as Fenwick (boys) looks for their second out-of-state win against St Andrews (FL) at the Ransom Everglades Tournament. The Friars won their first game over Gulliver Prep (FL) on Friday and also play the hosts before advancing to the championship round of the tournament. Here is a look at the other action that got started on Friday and continues on Saturday:

 

Fenwick results: The top-ranked Friars won both of their contests on Saturday in Florida and finished their trip to the Sunshine State with a 3-0 record. They earned wins over both Ransom and St Andrews on Saturday to go along with their Friday win over Gulliver Prep.

 

Lyons Tournament (Boys)

Only two games remain in the opening round at the Lyons Tournament, but a lot is left to be decided before the championship round begins on Saturday afternoon in Lagrange. The hosts beat Stevenson but will have to escape a challenge from Loyola at 1:00pm in order to advance to the title game. The same goes for Oak Park, as the Huskies beat York but will have to beat St Ignatius to get to the final game. York and Stevenson both went 1-1 on Friday night and look set to meet in the third-place game barring any surprises in the first two games of the day.

Final Results: Oak Park edged Lyons 11-10 in the title game; York beat Stevenson 8-6 for third place; Loyola held off St Ignatius 11-7 for fifth place

 

Naperville Central Tournament (Boys)

The opening round concluded on Friday night, as nine games were played at both Naperville Central and Naperville North High School. Naperville Central, Mundelein, and Glenbrook South each went 2-0 on the night to advance to the championship bracket of the tournament. The Redhawks will look to cement their status as the #2 team in the state; Glenbrook South is looking to build momentum for another run at a state tournament bid; Mundelein is finally at full strength and will look to surprise both teams on Saturday afternoon.

Final Results: Naperville Central held off Mundelein 13-7 and topped GBS 17-3 to win the title; Mundelein claimed second with a 10-8 overtime win over GBS; Naperville North finished fourth after going 2-0 on Saturday, while Buffalo Grove went 2-0 to finish in seventh place.

 

Sandburg Tournament (Boys)

Neuqua Valley and Sandburg proved their status as favorites at the Sandburg Tournament on Friday with opening round wins, while Andrew and Hinsdale South also won and will have a shot to knock off the aforementioned teams on Saturday afternoon. With four games down, eight more first-round games still remain before the tournament breaks down into the championship round.

Final Results: Neuqua Valley defeated Sandburg 10-8 to win the title; Hinsdale South edged Andrew 8-7 in the third place game; Prospect tipped R-B 10-9 for fifth place

 

St Ignatius Tournament (Girls)

The hosts passed the first test of their tournament with a 6-4 victory over New Trier on Friday night and also beat Marian 11-2 in the nightcap. Loyola and Homewood-Flossmoor were also winners on Friday night. The tournament has no championship round, but key matchups on Saturday begin at 9:00am with Loyola facing H-F. The Ramblers also face a tough test at noon against New Trier.

Final Results: St Ignatius finished the weekend with a 4-0 record; Loyola and New Trier finished their game in a 6-6 tie; the Ramblers went 3-0-1 while the Trevians finished the weekend with a 2-1-1 record.

 

St Viator Tournament (Girls)

Prospect won two games on Friday and will need one more win to advance to the St Viator Tournament's championship game on Saturday. Other contenders include St Charles North and Wheeling, as both teams won their first games on Friday night and will play at 11:10am. But with seven total games left to play before the final round, a lot can still happen in Arlington Heights on Saturday afternoon.

Final Results: Wheeling beat Prospect 5-3 in the tournament final and finished the weekend with a 4-0 record

 

York Tournament (Girls)

Lyons advanced to the championship game at the York Tournament with Friday wins over Riverside-Brookfield and Naperville North. They await the winner of the York-Andrew contest that gets underway at 10:00am; the Dukes won their first game over Barrington 9-8 and need one more win to advance to take on Lyons for the tournament title. The Fillies bounced back from a loss to York by beating Andrew and putting themselves in position to play in the third place game, where they will face either Naperville North or Riverside-Brookfield (who play at 9:00am).

Final Results: Lyons beat Barrington 16-3 in the title game; York bounced back from a 12-10 loss to Andrew with a 11-4 win over R-B to finish third; Andrew beat Naperville North 8-5 to claim fifth place

Recognition: The Guide to Getting Recognized on Illpolo.com

By Aaron Brown

 

Over the past seven years, the main goal of this web site has remained the same...to recognize as many boys' and girls' water polo players for their performances throughout the season. I'd hesitate to count how many players over that time have had their name appear on the site, but the number is probably far too great to count. And judging by the total number of hits the site is nearing (1,000,000), that's quite a few people who have read about those players over that time.

 

Which brings me to the point of the article - how to get recognized on Illpolo.com. The main reason I decided to type this out at midnight on a Wednesday during Week 6 of the season is because I have been getting a handful of e-mails from parents and players that are confused as to why certain players get recognition from the site, while others never get mentioned. Trust me when I tell you that between 95-98% of the information that I receive on a daily basis gets posted on the site. There really isn't much that goes into deciding who to include and who to exclude...all legitimate information usually finds its' way onto the site. Which means that if someone's performance hasn't been recognized, it is very likely that no one took the time to report the information to the site.
