Wheaton Academy (5-4) in the “lower bracket” second round. For one of those
these four teams that makes it to the quarterfinals, Marian Central
Catholic, St. Francis, Montini Catholic or Belvidere lies in wait.

The fourth and final season of Western Sun Conference play yielded five
playoff teams, including Kaneland and Sycamore.

Class 7A’s upper bracket, and hosts Palos Height’s Shepard High School on
Saturday, Nov. 1 at 1 p.m.

Bailey and Joe Camaliere leading the pack with seven TD’s each. Blake Serpa
had five TD’s this season. Taylor Andrews had three TD’s, followed by Quinn
