Throughout the summer we will be providing a season recap of the girls high school conferences in Northern Illinois. The 2017-18 season recap will include team records , all conference selections, a season summary and a “Sneak Peek” as to what to look for in the 2018-19 season.
This recap is for the Red Division of the South West Suburban Conference
Season Summary :
Lincoln Way -West won the conference championship over Bradley by one game . The Warriors made it to the regional final in one of the toughest sectional complexes in the state. Both Bradley and Thornwood had strong seasons and won 20 games with a mix of experienced and young players on their rosters .
Lincoln Way -West 11-1
Lincoln Way -Central 7-5
Returning All Conference Selections for the 2018-19 Season
Lincoln Way -West : Taylor Gugliuzza/Junior – Tara Gugliuzza/ Sophomore – Tara Hastings /Senior
Bradley : Evey Evans/ Junior
Lincoln Way- Central : Abi Baumgartner/Senior
Thornridge : Mia Jordan/ Sophomore
Bolded Players are part of the PGH Illinois Top 100 rankings for their respective class
2018-19 Season Sneak Peek :
Lincoln Way -West returns an explosive team that shoots well from the perimeter and has depth and size. The Warriors look to be the favorite and will be pushed by Lincoln Way -Central and Bradley who both will have experience on their rosters to challenge them for the top spot.
2018-19 Stock Risers :
Sydney Swanberg Lincoln Way-West : Swanberg a junior wing player gives the Warriors another outside threat and a player who can score in transition . Look for her to earn recognition as one of the best all around players in the division next season.
Regan LoConte Lincoln Way -Central : A junior 5’9 guard LoConte scored numerous times in double figures last season. She will form an outside /inside scoring combo with Abi Baumgartner that will make the Knights dangerous in their half-court offense.
Molly Ryan Lincoln Way -West : A 6’1 junior post player , Ryan gives the Warriors another piece to add to their already high scoring offense and a rim protector on defense. She should be one of the top rebounders in both the Red and Blue divisions of the conference.
