Week 7

Week 8

Week 9

1. Nazareth (1)

Winners of 15 in a row. Play Deerfield Monday. Grace Carstensen has become the go-to scorer. 

2. Fremd (2)

Beat Barrington and held a good Schaumburg team to 9 points.

3. Alton (3)

Who can beat the Redbirds? No one has an answer yet. Teutopolis almost found a way. Redbirds also beat Okawville, who I’ll write more about later. 

4. Bolingbrook (4)

Still has not lost to an in-state foe and is 19-2. 

5. Whitney Young (6)

Followed win over Hersey with dubs against Northside and Butler. 

6. Geneva (7)

Heads into big week in DuKane at 18-3.

7. Kenwood (9)

Sanai Tyler scored 21 in a 68-57 win over Butler. Also beat La Lumiere and Simeon.

8. Lincoln (13)

Lincoln seems capable of dominating near any team in the state. They roared out to a 19-3 lead over Peoria and never let the Lions get closer than 6 in a 48-41 win. 

9. Hersey (10)

Big games next weekend against Prospect and Mother McAuley

10. Maine South (12)

Had its 16 game win streak ended by York, but not before taking control of CSL South with a win over Glenbrook South. 

11. Benet (11)

Defeated Geneseo and Carmel after a loss to Noblesville on Monday. 

12. Libertyville (14)

19-4 and controls destiny in North Suburban conference at 9-1.

13. Quincy Notre Dame (15)

Winners of 15 straight without an in-state loss. 

14. Saint Ignatius (17)

Defeated Mother McAuley this week to earn an outright win of the GCAC Red.

15. Montini (18)

Winners of 6 straight and play Fremd Monday. 

16. O’Fallon (5)

Fell to Okawville, ending a 6-game win streak. Did beat Civic Memorial and Mater Dei.

17. Peoria (21)

Grabbed its 2nd win over PND in 3 tries and lost to Lincoln. 


18. Peoria Notre Dame (16)

Fell to Peoria in what is a great rivalry and matchup for both squads. Did beat Dunlap Monday. 

19. Normal (19)

Up to 22 wins. Pulled out close wins over Richwoods and Lincoln-Way West.

20. Lake Zurich (8)

Been struggling with injuries to arguably its two best players in Baylie Parks and Avery Cooper. Difficult to pinpoint where they should be given that with both players they’re a top 10 team and without either they’re not a top 25 team. Stevenson beat them and if LZ doesn’t get healthy, SHS or others could find itself in a top 25 spot. 

21. Carmel Catholic (20)

Beat Stevenson, lost to Benet and held Marian Catholic to 24 points in a win.

22. Deerfield (23)

Has won 6 straight, including wins over Mother McAuley and Barrington. Plays Nazareth Monday. 

23. Lyons Township (25)

Undefeated in West Suburban and has won 7 straight. Plays Mother McAuley Monday.

24. Loyola Academy (24)

Now 19-4 with a fun matchup against Glenbrook South coming Tuesday. 

25. Barrington (22)

The saving grace for the 16-8 Fillies is that they’re still built in a way that could lend itself to postseason success. Have lost 3 of last 5.

Unranked team notes 


Beat O’Fallon before losing to Alton. 

Really conflicted when it comes to the greater St. Louis area. Alton is the undisputed best on the east side of the Mississippi in the area. O’Fallon has taken Alton to the wire multiple times and Okawville has a win over O’Fallon now (55-50). The Rockets also defeated the O’Fallon Panthers twice last year. It’s hard to justify ranking O’Fallon above Okawville, but do think the Panthers have a better resume, despite losing to Okawville. 

York (UR) 

Now 17-5 after ending Maine South’s, 16-game win streak Stella Kohl was big in the game. 

Neuqua Valley 

Undefeated in conference play and 16-9 overall. Defeated Naperville North this week but also ha a recent loss to Boylan Catholic. 

Plainfield East

10-0 in the SPC and has won 7 straight games. Lexi Sepulveda scoring quite a few points. 


Now 20-3 and has won 7 straight. 


18-2 undefeated in the Mid-Illini and has only lost to Normal.


17-4 and played Peoria Notre Dame within a point on the 16th. Now 7-1 in Mid-Illini .
