As a follow up to our preseason predictions for each conference I will give a mid season update report. We will begin with the Southwestern conference.

Our predicted MVP of the conference, Kaylah Rainey of Belleville East was diagnosed with a heart defect in her pre season physical. Kaylah had an open heart surgery to repair this issue.She currently looks to be well on her way to playing in college. There is an outside chance she could return late in the season but it is not likely.

The current standings for the conference are as follows:

  • Edwardsville 4-0 and 15-2 overall
  • Belleville East 4-1 and 8-8 overall
  • Ofallon 3=1 and 12-3 overall
  • Collinsville 2=2 and 7-5 overall
  • East St Louis 2-3 and 6-10 overall
  • Belleville West 0-4 and 7-9 overall
  • Alton 0-4 and 4-9 overall

There are some games are coming up that will be key in determining the champion. Those games are listed below.
