Will this game be on NFHS? I don't see it listed.
So far no. The 1st and 2nd rounds they didn’t show as upcoming until Thursday or Friday. Hopefully it will be.
It is now.

Re: Playoff Pickems??

I thought one of our regulars ran one every year for 4A, 5A and 6A. It was tied into another link where you filled in your bracket but results were only posted for those of us that participated. I've been looking for it this year. Does anybody know that link? That would be me. We did a full bracket...

Re: Week 5 Scores

The defense is getting better! :D BTW, what is Central averaging on offense - has to be pretty impressive. Also, how long was the game last night - anybody know? 11:00 PM so about 3 1/2 hours. 1st quarter lasted 52 minutes The longest part of the game was half-time. GBG crying that he was hungry an...

Re: Week 5 Scores

Well the flip side is the defense is giving up over 60 points a game this year (60+ points in three of their games) - the margin of victory is what I look at and right now Central is beating Bloomington by 32 points which is impressive but I am not sure how good Bloomington really is at this point ...

Re: Scores and updates Week 4

Peoria definitely has a great offense but think how good the team would be if the D was as good? Now will ND continue to put up 60, 70, 80 points per game the rest of the year? Or was that only possible against Peoria. I think a great example would be last year. With the area's 3rd highest points/g...

He did the same thing every week last year. He said someday he'd be able to say "I told you so" because they would have to win eventually.

Resignation of Duties

After two weeks of anguished flip-flopping, I have decided to give up the role of administrator of the Large School Pick'Em. It's been fun, but it is time for someone else to suffer the headaches. On a side note, due to the the PJStar's inability to report complete boxscores, I will also no longer b...

The Peoria Area All-Time record for the boys 1600 belongs to Nick Holmes (Limestone). He ran 4:10.2 (4:10.44 FAT conversion) in 2008. Which meet was that time run at? No idea which meet.

Tuffy ran for Bergan not notre dame, hence not school record!

FYI, the girls is 4:43.4 by Suzie Tuffy of Bergan in 1985. Does PND recognize this as a school record or is it on a "retired" list? JMC?
