I have to plug for my old high school, Glenbrook North, in Northbrook, IL. They just won the Illinois Class AA Basketball state championship. I think it's their first boys athletic championship since 1993 when my younger brother's volleyball won state (program which my friend, sang, and i started:).

Jon Scheyer, a junior, was a stud with 27 points in the final game and a total of 134 for the state tournament, which was "nine shy of the Class AA record set by Marcus Liberty of King in 1987."

Also from another angle, it's somewhat amusing that an all-Jewish team (with no one bigger than 6'7") won a tournament traditionally dominated by schools and teams that are predominantly African American. A bit Hoosiers-like.
