News and Notes

Sectional Assignments

The 2016 sectional assignments were announced by the IHSA last week and can be found here: Boys | Girls

 

Spring Break Wraps Up

Most of the schools (except mine) have completed their Spring Break vacation, so expect the Week 5 schedule and especially the weekend tournament schedule to really pick up as the regular season nears the halfway mark.

 

State Tournament Bracket Drawing

The next announcement the IHSA should be the state tournament bracket drawing, where the sectional winners are paired up for the state quarterfinal round via a blind draw. In the past, the announcement has been made in mid-April.
