Re: Illinois '14-'15

Well, if the Masonic meet mirrors the IHSA's three tiered system, it would look something like this: 1. Schools with enrollments of 0-728.00 will be Class 1A 2. Schools with enrollments of 728.01-1657.00 will be Class 2A 3. Schools with enrollments of 1657.01 and-above will be Class 3A Keep in mind,...

Not only has this set been challenging, which has, in turn, made us a better team come playoff time, it's ...

Re: Illinois '13-'14

I echo much of what has been said above. IMSA not only has Anton, the best player in the state IMO, but a strong group of supporting players around him as well, from Siva, Waleed and Dan (I use supporting loosely, as all of those players are fantastic in his own right). One top of that, they had a f...

Re: ATROPHY at Northern Illinois University (20 April 2013)

Bloomington is interested in "cleansing our palate's" from the IHSA questions. We aim to bring 2, maybe 3 teams, as many as we can really. I'll keep ya posted.

I'd be able to help staff as well and can bring my own laptop.

See you in April,
