Mirroring my statement in the ISU prediction, this is all super early, but I'll give it a cursory go.



Watseka is no stranger here, but Rushville-Industry has had some great showings as well.


I'm leaning towards Newton for the moment, but there are several contenders.


Mahomet-Seymour seems likely, but East Peoria has made steady improvements.


Bloomington, Galesburg, and Washington might be fighting this one out.


Plainfield North, Batavia, and Elkgrove are who I'd go with for now, not really sure who I'd favor.


DGS and Normal are who I'd look to initially, but there are a couple others that could close the gap.



I'd love for most of this to be wrong, as changes are good for the competitiveness and education of Illinois.

I'd put Batavia in at 3rd for 5A, but who do you think takes grand champ/ gets the highest score.

I think any one of the first place has the sheer “power” to win grand champion. But I’d say 5a maybe 4a (but the depends on the weather)
