#10 Brother Rice at #1 Fenwick
The Crusaders and Friars renew their Catholic League rivalry on
opening night following a season when both teams qualified for the
#5 Lyons at #9 Oak Park
Who will gain the upper hand in the West Suburban Conference title race
when these two familiar foes get their respective seasons underway in
#1 Fenwick vs #4 St Ignatius
Fenwick's chance for another perfect Catholic season could come down
to this early-season contest with the Wolfpack. The Friars also
eliminated SICP in the state quarterfinals last May.
Fenwick at #6 Loyola
The long-awaited rematch finally arrives at the end of the
opening month, as the Friars look to avenge their state title game loss to
the Ramblers in an important Catholic League duel.
MARCH 31 & APRIL 28
#20 Andrew vs #21 LWC
The T-Bolts will likely have to go through Lincoln-Way Central if they
hope to repeat as SWSC Red champs in 2015, as the Knights have their sights
set on capturing their first divisional crown.
MARCH 31 & APRIL 28
#8 Sandburg vs #12 Lockport
The Porters edged out the Eagles by one game in the SWSC Blue title race
last season after the two teams split the regular season series. The title
race could once again be decided by these two contests.
APRIL 16 & APRIL 21 &
#17 New Trier at #16 GBS; #17 New Trier at #13 Niles West; #16 GBS
at #13 Niles West
The battle for the CSL South could boil down to these three contests
in late April. The Trevians ran the table to claim the conference
last year, lost the conference tournament to GBS, who then went on
to lose to Niles West in the sectional semifinals. Got all that?
#7 Naperville North vs #2 Naperville Central
The battle for supremacy in the Naperville area will carry on for the
entire season, but this regular season matchup between the Huskies and
Redhawks should be real indicator of who will be favored to advance to the
state tournament when the postseason arrives.
#4 St Ignatius vs #3 Stevenson
Expect a great late season battle between two state tournament
hopefuls when Ignatius and Stevenson do battle in Lincolnshire on
#5 Lyons vs #7 Naperville North
The Lions and Huskies have developed quite an interesting
nonconference rivalry in recent years, so look for one of the
season's most intense games late in the regular season in
