Mid Illini 2019

Great job of covering conference in PJS. Looks like a two team race, Washington and East Peoria? Any thoughts around conference on other teams of improvement?

Here's a look at last season's standings:
Washington 14-0 30-7
Limestone 10-4 17-12
Canton 8-6 14-12
Dunlap 7-7 15-20
East Peoria 7-7 17-16
Metamora 6-8 13-19
Pekin 4-10 8-13
Morton 0-14 3-26

I've been off the beat for two seasons, so when I saw the standings for last year, I was very surprised. I like to see improvement from the middle of the pack.

There's a full slate of Mid-Illini games tomorrow. I realize you can't define a team by one game, but it will be an interesting to see those results from tomorrow.

Tuesday's games-
Canton at Morton
Pekin at Dunlap
Metamora at East Peoria
Washington at Limestone

Thursday's games
East Peoria at Canton
Dunlap at Washington
Limestone at Metamora
Morton at Pekin

Morton has had to cancel the rest of their JV schedule this year due to low numbers. The team is down to 19 players in the entire program.

East Peoria defeats Washington 6-3 in a very well played game by both teams. High school softball at its best before a large crowd. Maybe someone can help with the standings at the halfway point of the season.

East Peoria 7-0
Washington 6-1
Canton
Limestone
Dunlap
Metamora
Pekin 1-6
Morton 0-7
