It’s little wonder that the Chargers are regarded as the area’s premier team.

Chicago Mt. Carmel has, unequivocally, one of the strongest football tradition in the state of Illinois.
The Caravan won the program’s 11th state title last November at Memorial Stadium in Champaign.
Only Joliet Catholic, with 13 state titles, can boast more than what Frank Lenti Sr. and his program have won.
■ Mahomet-Seymour 11, Champaign Central 7. Down to its final out with the bases empty, the Bulldogs erupted for six runs to stun the host Maroons. Joe Kenney and Cullen Day each had two-run singles in the seventh for M-S, and winning pitcher Chris Redman held Central to two hits over the final four innings.

The 170-pound Mammen won every wrestling match he had as a senior and was the choice as News-Gazette Wrestler of the Year.
