Biggest Surprises

BOYS

Sandburg Wins SWSC Blue With Win Over H-F

H-F looked like they would run through the SWSC Blue with a perfect record as recently as April 25. But an upset loss to Lockport last week made things interesting, and the Eagles responded by beating the LWN Sectional's top-seed 10-4 to claim the title.

 

GIRLS

Loyola Beats Fenwick in MCAC Semifinals

The Ramblers shook things up as the postseason arrived by beating top-ranked Fenwick 6-5 in the MCAC semifinals.

 

LWC Stuns Sandburg in OT

The Knights showed that they shouldn't be taken lightly as the sixth-seed at the LWN Sectional after beating Sandburg 16-15 in overtime on Monday night.
