The Blackcats were crowned champions of the IHSA Regional, Sectional, Supersectional and were set to compete at the IHSA State Tournament, when it was abruptly cancelled due to the threat of the spread of the Coronavirus. With a school record 35-2, the Blackcats had to settle for being named a "Final 4 Finalist" in just their 2nd ever trip to state. We are PROUD of our BLACKCATS!
The Lady Blackcats won the Black Diamond Conference Championship, the IHSA Regional Championship and ended the season as one of the last "Sweet 16" teams in state! Congratulations on a GREAT season!
