tournaments this weekend, with 8 of them getting underway on Friday night.
Two teams travel out-of-state to play in Michigan and Missouri. There are
110 total games being played on Saturday. So obviously, there are a lot of
games to update and Illpolo.com will try to keep up. Here is what to look
for on Saturday...
BOYS WEEKEND PREVIEWS
Mundelein, Naperville Central, and
Glenbrook South all advanced to the championship round at the Naperville
Tournament after each team posted 2-0 records on Friday night. Look for
head-to-head matchups between the three teams on Saturday afternoon. At the
Sandburg Tournament, Andrew, Neuqua, Sandburg, and STC North all won
their first round games and will look for a few more wins as the preliminary
rounds continue on Saturday morning in Orland Park. Finally, the action
really heats up early at the Lyons Tourney, as the fourth-ranked
hosts take on #11 Loyola at 9:00am to determine who will play in Saturday's
title game. The winner will later take on either #1 Oak Park or #8 St
Ignatius, as those two teams face off at 9:50am.
Other boys' tournaments -
The competition should be strong at the Latin Tournament, as the
sixth-ranked Romans play host to #10 H-F, #12 Waubonsie Valley, and #24 St
Viator. #15 New Trier also plays host to #9 McHenry, Lockport, and Fremd on
GIRLS WEEKEND PREVIEWS
Naperville Central won both of
their opening-round games at the Jenison Tournament, so they are
still hopeful of claiming some hardware from Michigan later today. At UIC,
#8 Homewood-Flossmoor stunned #6 Loyola 6-5...the Vikings will have little
time to celebrate as they face #1 Lyons at 10:20am. The winner of that game
is likely to face either #2 St Ignatius or #17 Waubonsie Valley in the
championship game, as those two teams meet at 12:50pm. At the York
Tournament, Sandburg and Naperville North play at 10:00am to determine
who will advance to the title game; the winner will face York if the Dukes
if they can hold off Barrington at 9:00am. Finally, Lincoln-Way Central,
Prospect, and St Viator each reported opening-round wins at the Viator
Tournament, and all three teams will look to challenge for the
tournament title beginning at 9:00am in Arlington Heights.
