Top 25 Season Wrap-Up:

Many questions still exist as we head into the state tournament tomorrow. The much talked about Brebeuf Regional will crush the dreams of multiple top 15 teams. Some

teams appear to be struggling while others are surging and primed for a strong post season. As for those to keep an eye on, watch for Columbus North, Lawrence Central, Terre Haute South, Crown Point, Munster, Hobart, Brownsburg, and Lowell. Columbus North and Lawrence Central have been steadily improving for the past few weeks and will attack the state meet with different strategies. Crown Point is ready for a breakout race when you consider their top three. Hobart, Lowell, and Munster have been so competitive all season, it’s anyone’s guess. Also, Terre Haute South has possibly the best chance of any non-top 10 team to break onto the podium as they are getting healthier every week and have home course advantage.

Good luck to all!
