The brackets are set and this Friday is the opening round to pare down the 256 teams with winning records in the state down to eight champions.
There are eight classes, 8A-1A. Each one will have one champion by the end of the month.
This is the 5th Showdown between high schools along Route 66 and the Lincoln Highway.
This is also the first time that there have been more Lincoln Highway than Route 66 teams: Route 66-16, Lincoln Highway-21.
The Route 66 teams:
Normal- Community West
Springfield Southeastillinois ro
East St. Louis
Sacred Heart-Griffin (Springfield)

Those Are the Route 66 Teams. Tomorrow, the Lincoln Highway Teams. I Wonder How Many of the Four Lincoln-Way Teams Are In It? --RoadDog
