The IHSA has determined that equality will reign in the coming fall for all Classes competing in the IHSA State Series.
Assignments for the IHSA Regionals and Sectionals will come in September. Until then, we are left to wonder where we will head for a Regional that feeds into an extra Sectional. This fall, for the first time, there will be 3 Regionals that feed into one Sectional. You must finish in the top 7 teams at the Regional, to advance as a team to the Sectional. At the Sectional, you must finish among the top 5 teams, in order to advance to Peoria for the Class 2A State Finals on the first Saturday of November. Our road will be a tough one, because we still reside in the most talented area of Illinois for cross country programs. Only the IHSA knows where they are going to spread out the talent for this year's Sectional complexes. But our opportunity is there, and we need to work very hard in order to put ourselves in a position to be able to advance.
