    CONGRATULATIONS GIRLS! Amazing accomplishment!

    BREAK/break- Same time, by my last check, Illinois taxpayers fund the IHSA, so the fact that we would have to pay $11.99 to watch the matches and not have it provided by the incredible team at WRUL is an abomination. This is a PERFECT example of everything wrong with this state and how its run.
