Game 1: UIC Sectional vs Barrington Sectional
Game 2: Vernon Hills Sectional vs GBN Sectional
Game 3: Fenwick Sectional vs Lyons Sectional
Game 4: LWN Sectional vs Neuqua Sectional
Game 1: LWN Sectional vs Fenwick Sectional
Game 2: Lyons Sectional vs Barrington Sectional
Game 3: Vernon Hills Sectional vs Neuqua Sectional
Game 4: UIC Sectional vs GBN 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
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, April 21.
