News and Notes

State Quarterfinal Brackets Announced

The IHSA announced the state quarterfinal brackets last Friday. The random draw lines up the sectional winners in the opening round at the state tournament and also lines up who will play in the semifinal rounds. Look familiar? The pairings are the EXACT SAME on both the boys' and girls' sides from 2010. What are the odds of that happening?

 

Sectional Seeds Determined This Thursday

The sectional seeds and pairings will be determined later this week, with complete playoff brackets and schedules coming soon after all coaches have voted.
