The regular season is over here in Illinois. After nine games, the best-of-the-best are squaring off, starting tomorrow.
Last year, I had those schools along the Lincoln Highway and those along Route 66 squared off for a last-man standing contest to see which historic road did better. Even though the Route 66 schools outnumbered the Lincoln Highway ones almost 2-1, it ended up as a tie, with the last teams from each school being eliminated in the same round.
This year, there are 19 Route 66 teams and 9 Lincoln Highway ones.
Illinois is divided into eight classes by school size.
ROUTE 66 TEAMS
Bloomington Central Catholic
Joliet Catholic (Also in LH)
Springfield Sacred Heart
Plainfield South (also in LH)
East St. Louis
OK, That's the Route 66 Schools. --RoadDog
