Re: IHSA Proposal

I'm a little confused/intrigued by the 4A districts, specifically District 5 and 6. Why are Canton and Macomb split? Ideally, Canton/Macomb/Havana/QND/IVC/Manual together would make more sense, wouldn't it? Also- Havana in 4A? Is this true? I'm getting too many "Hunger Games" vibes with this distric...

Re: Local coverage by PJS?

I was watching local sports on tv last night and it highlighted Morton’s over Central. Since I am also a subscriber to the newspaper, I went to the Sports section today and found NOTHING! No highlights no box score. The Illinois game got over very late, yet it made Sports front page. No reporters l...

Re: 2017-2018 Mid-Illini All Sports Standings

Looks like Dunlap hands down this year. I disagree. Good shot, no doubt. Hands down, I don't think it will be a run away. Don't forget they score -0- points for Wrestling. I sure wish Canton would add tennis to at lease score *some* extra points in that. Not sure that lack of student itnerest is th...

Re: Mid-Illini 2017

Does anyone have the score of the Canton/Metamora game? I heard through the grapevine that someone saw in the Canton paper that the Little Giants won :shock: ...is this correct? I feel like I would have see that in bold print if true. Metamora won 25-14, 25-7 Yep. That's more like it. :roll:

Canton Coaching Change

Canton just recently hired and approved the new varsity girls basketball coach. Jessica Thum will replace Layne Langhoff who moved to PND. Thum's first two seasons coaching were undefeated (Canton freshmen and sophomore teams respectively). I think in three seasons, she's only seen five losses, a fe...

Re: 2017-2018 IHSA Classifications announced

It is interesting to look at area schools. Metamora's enrollment like you said, is actually about where it was in the 1970's. Washington's is down about 300 from the late 1970's - they had 1600 students according to one program I have. East Peoria had 2000 students in the early 1970's while Richwoo...

I will be at the Bradley-Bourbonnais and Champaign Centennial game this Friday. The boilermakers are coming off two pretty hot seasons, and I expect it to be a pretty easy W for them.

Well folks, we are down to the 1 week warning before our news stations and paper headlines are flooded with high school football scores. :bounce I'm curious to hear everyone's week #1 predictions, specifically for MI.

Canton's Stadium

Has anyone seen the improvements to Ron Fahnestock field in Canton? Their new score board looks nice and shiny. Are there any other Peoria area schools using a board like this? I haven't seen any since last time I was back at many of the fields. I'm curious to know how it will work. PS- thanks for l...
