21. Niles Notre Dame (10-3, 23): It shouldn’t be all that surprising that the Dons gave Cary-Grove all it could handle in the semifinals. Up next: Season complete.
20. Hillcrest (12-1, 12): Things came completely unraveled in their semifinal game with Joliet Catholic, put unfortunate cap on what was really a spectacular campaign for the Hawks. Up next: Season complete.
19. Bishop McNamara (12-1, NR): Weren’t given much of a chance to dethrone Rochester in its semifinal, responded by hanging 52 points on the Rockets. Up next: Class 4A state championship vs. No. 16 IC Catholic.
18. Homewood-Flossmoor (10-2, 14): Vikings were overshadowed by others this season but still a strong program in a solid league. Up next: Season complete.
17. East St. Louis (9-3, 13): Still notable that only one loss came to a team in Illinois that ultimately ended the Flyers' season. Up next: Season complete.
