Re: IHSA Mask Policy

So after Friday, many area school districts have gone "Mask Optional". D150 has not. Has there been any talk amongst D150 administrators about refusing to play away games in venues where masks are not mandatory? It's my understanding that the IHSA policy has not changed and schools are ex...

Re: Mid-Illini Expectations

Meta/Morton/Washington games have been excellent and fun to watch. Thanks Clutchsports. I did go to the Wash v Meta at Wash and it was a bit boring for first 3 quarters. Post season Meta will probably be in a different regional than Wash/Morton. Too bad we can't have 4 games between these 3 teams. ...

Re: Morton Shootout

Was at the Morton Shootout yesterday. Watched Notre Dame/Washington. Saw the Irish had a couple players out, however hard to believe that any high school team starting three 6’8” players couldn’t score more than 38 points. When opposing team holds the ball because they can’t compete with the defens...

Re: Pekin Insurance Holiday Tournament #56 (2021)

A participating team shut down basketball today for 2 weeks. Any last minute teams looking for a tournament? Need a team not already scheduled AND currently is four or more games under the IHSA max. IHSA changed max games format a few years ago so it’s a bit tougher now. Extremely tough, unless a t...

Not that anyone needs a reason, but is this a general hatred or did something else get canceled?

Re: Fan Attendance

Unfortunate events? Metamora went to full scale in person school recently rather than finish the school year split schedule. I wonder if this had any impact on the football “unfortunate event.” And, they just got back from spring break. I don't think there is anything school wide. They had the JV g...

Re: Morton Basketball

I'm not surprised that CBS injected false-sexism when they mentioned the women's team don't have their banners hanging in the gym (and insinuated if the boys won, theirs would be hanging). That's blatantly false. I'm surprised that the ladies interviewed (and Kindred) allowed that false narrative t...

Re: Pekin Seraching For New Varsity Boys Coach

I wonder if Pekin will look in house such as Jeremy Crouch (is he still at Pekin - I know he was head coach at Illini Bluffs and then became assistant to Walraven years back) or will the school look outside for an established coach? Since Walraven was an in house hire, I would like to see the schoo...

Re: The New Metamora Varsity Head Football Coach:

Grebner was my second choice, behind Curt Ryan. Curt would bring more excitement to the game, which is what is needed to keep fans coming IMO.
