Share this post

Cue the Friday Night Lights! The 2013 IHSAA Prep Football tournament begins this evening. The tournament begins with all of the state's 322 teams participating, but some sectionals feature teams waiting until next Friday to begin play. This includes Munster and Michigan City, who will wait until next Friday, while the rest of the Region's teams start tonight. Big match-ups this evening include Portage hosting Penn, Morton hosting East Chicago Central, Andrean hosting Knox, Wheeler hosting Boone Grove and Whiting hosting LaVille. For the first time there will be 6 state champions in Indiana, as the state now features 6 classes.
The opening round 4A high school football sectional game tonight [Oct 25] between Lowell and Gary West Side was recently moved from West Side to East Chicago Central High School, due to concerns over field conditions, including reportedly problems with some lights. A representative from the Indiana High School Athletic Association traveled up to Gary last week.
