News and Notes

Awaiting State Tournament Brackets

Could this be the week that the IHSA draws the pairings for the state tournament brackets? Stay tuned...

 

Fighting Over SLUH

The state's top two boys' teams were on track to play for the second time this season at the York Tournament, but Missouri's St Louis University High shocked the Friars 9-8 in sudden-death overtime, advancing to play Lyons for the tournament title instead. The Lions wasted no time taking control against the out-of-state visitors en route to a 15-4 title-game victory. Lyons and Fenwick could see each other again at the Stevenson Tournament.

 

Fenwick and St Ignatius Build Suspense

The Friars and the Wolfpack finished a tense contest tied at 6-6 in the title game of the Fenwick Tournament; instead of overtime, the two teams will meet in a conference game less than 48 hours after the final horn sounded on Saturday night.
