WCIA -- With Super-Sectionals only one day away, Monticello and Schlarman both have plenty to play for. For the Sages, they are looking for their first trip to the state finals. The Hilltoppers want to avenge their only loss on the season thus far.
"The last time the sectional championship was won was when our assistant coach, Coach Hall, was our head coach. It kind of felt good. She just started crying. It was a great moment for her and for all of us," Monticello senior Zanna Meyers explained. "We're glad we did it for her, too."
"It's the best feeling knowing that a team from Monticello hasn't done it in so long, knowing that we can do that, it just brings back great memories," Emily Wilson added.
Schlarman takes on Annawan, who beat the Toppers by 10 in the State Farm Classic championship back in December.
"It wasn't the best feeling when we lost to them," Capria Brown said. "We have a different mindset now. We're definitely a better team than when we played against them. So, it won't be an easy game for both of us."
"I feel like we'll handle it pretty well. We've been in these types of situations before much bigger teams, bigger and better teams," Sydney Gouard added. "So, we feel like we won't let the pressure get to us."
Schlarman and Annawan tip-off at 6:00 on Monday in Pontiac. Monticello and Chicago Harlan will follow at approxiamtely 8:00.
