The Illini Central MS Girls 7th Grade Basketball Team won the Bartonville Oak Grove West Regional by defeating 1st seed Norman Metcalf by keeping their opponent scoreless in the first quarter and allowing only 1 field goal in the second quarter. The girls were able to maintain their lead and come home with a victory. The team was so excited to have the fire truck meet them outside of town and escort them through town. The Impact Cheer Girls gave them a boisterous welcome as did Angie Curry when she brought out her Cougar flag and high-fived the girls through the bus windows. The girls were treated to pizza by Darren and Beth Smith at Smokey’s.
