Off the top of my head, I can tell you Rick Bay didnt win his state titles in 1949, '50, and '51. If that was true, he'd be closing in on 80 yrs old. I'm pretty sure the writer is a decade off.

I am not worked up about it, but I did find it laughable that you described Mt. Carmel as the victim and not the rest of the teams in IL.

CTdad,
I think I may have figured it out. Dylans first period 9-4 victory may have been won with a 5 pt throw or 2 3-pointers. I'm pretty sure either of those would earn technical fall pts.
