The road to Joliet starts Monday for area Class 1A and 2A baseball teams. Here's my look back at the season to this point:
Top overall performer
RANTOUL – Sahr Lebbie had two hits and two RBI to lead Rantoul to a come-from-behind 7-6 victory against Centennial on Tuesday in prep baseball.
ST. JOSEPH – St. Joseph-Ogden's softball team won its own invite with three lopsided victories Saturday. And gave coach Randy Wolken something to complain about. Just a bit.
"We hit well for the day, not as well as we've been hitting," Wolken said.
DECATUR – Zach Thomas had 12 strikeouts, including three against Illinois State signee Blair Rasmussen, to help Danville earn a split against Decatur MacArthur in Big 12 Conference baseball Saturday.
TUSCOLA – Kurtis Kinyoun (4 for 4, five RBI) and Pat Yoakum (four RBI) each slugged home runs as Tuscola breezed past Central A&M 18-4 on Thursday.
Sullivan 11, Clinton 1. Austin Raboin had four RBI to lead the host Redskins.
URBANA – They cruised through the season's early weeks at 11-1, surprising most everyone except themselves.
Williams sharp for Sages; Beckemeyer gives Maroons a lift
CHAMPAIGN – Tyler Schweighart's three hits helped St. Thomas edge Unity 6-4 on Monday.
CHAMPAIGN – Clint Miller pitched a five-inning no-hitter, striking out six, as Champaign Central beat Decatur Eisenhower 10-0 to complete a doubleheader sweep Saturday.
The Maroons won the Big 12 opener 4-2 behind Harrison Freeland's two-run single in the fifth inning.
