Peoria Basketball is Alive and Well

This year we are blessed with two Peoria area high school teams making it to Peoria for the
Final Four of their classes.  Illini Central won it all last weekend and the all the towns in the school district showed up to support them.  Meanwhile, the Limestone Rockets continued their unexpected roll through opponents on their way to Peoria for the final four in 3A.  It is refreshing to once again have a Peoria representative playing in the final weekend.  The team they are playing, Chicago Morgan Park, is one of the best high school teams in the country with 7 players 6'5" or taller and several of those are 6'7" or taller. But, it always seems when a Peoria school qualifies for the Final Four they end up playing a Chicago powerhouse.  It will be a tough task, but it was a tough task for Limestone to beat an extremely good Washington team earlier in the tournament. Get the lead and hang on boys!! Peoria is proud of you already!
