The IHSA held the Spring Bracket drawing in
Bloomington on April 21. Here are how the state quarterfinals will line up
in May for the 2010 state tournament:
Game 1: UIC Sectional vs Barrington Sectional
Game 2: Lyons Sectional vs York Sectional
Game 3: GBS Sectional vs Vernon Hills Sectional
Game 4: LWC Sectional vs Neuqua Valley Sectional
Game 1: York Sectional vs LWC Sectional
Game 2: UIC Sectional vs Barrington Sectional
Game 3: GBS Sectional vs Lyons Sectional
Game 4: Vernon Hills Sectional vs Neuqua Valley Sectional
To avoid any confusion, here is how everything works. The
IHSA does a blind draw to determine the pairings for the state tournament.
The first team drawn is placed on the first position of an eight-team
bracket, and every team drawn after that fills the next spot in the bracket.
In the above listing, the winner of Game 1 will play the
winner of Game 2 in the state semifinals, while the winner of Game 3 plays
the winner of Game 4 in the second semifinal game.
In late March, the IHSA determined which teams will play
in each sectional, and each sectional's seeds will be decided on Thursday,
