SECTIONAL ASSIGNMENT THOUGHTS
Just a thought on the sectional hosts and assignments...with the new all-deep facility at Lyons and Neuqua Valley once again hosting a sectional, all of the 2007 Sectionals will be played in all-deep pools. Definitely a positive step there, as the shallow-deep problem has been a major problem with great schools but shallow-deep facilities like Sandburg and Waubonsie Valley, among others, having to host sectionals in the past. As for the assignments, most of the sectionals remain the same, with the one major change being Sandburg (boys) heading to the Lincoln-Way East Sectional instead of playing with Lyons and Brother Rice at the Lyons Sectional this year. With the difference in teams on each side, the Sandburg girls remain at the Lyons Sectional, which obviously means that the same school with the same coaches will be playing at different sites, which is also a problem for fans and even members of the opposite teams who may not and probably will not get a chance to see their counterparts play in the semifinals or the finals if they last that long in the tournament. On the other hand, both Evanston teams will be playing at UIC this year, whereas last year the boys were at Glenbrook and the girls were the only team at UIC. And once again, Fenwick and St Patrick, two of the top teams in the state every year, will play at the same sectional, which is a huge disappointment.
