Benet Academy makes its return to ISU after missing out on the State tournament the previous two seasons after taking home the title in both 2015 and 2016. Mother McAuley hasn’t been to State since 1997 and Rockton (Hononegah) are making their first appearance in the tournament.
Maine West is the favorite, making its second appearance in as many years after settling for a third-place finish last season. The Warriors boast a 33-0 record with only a small handful of games being relatively close. Saint Louis University commit Rachel Kent and Junior Angela Dugalic, who will choose between several high Power 5 schools, are seasoned veterans and look to lead the team to the title this year.
