in Bloomington on April 13. Here are how the quarterfinals will line up in
May for the 2012 state tournament:
Game 1: Stagg Sectional vs Schaumburg Sectional
Game 2: Metea Sectional vs York Sectional
Game 3: UIC Sectional vs GBS Sectional

Game 1: Palatine Sectional vs UIC Sectional
Game 2: Stagg Sectional vs Metea Sectional
Game 3: York Sectional vs Schaumburg Sectional
Game 4: GBS Sectional vs LWC 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 19.
