The defending Class 1 State Champions are in Burlington Iowa this weekend where they are competing in the Adidas Tournament of Champions, a competition that brings high school teams from all over the Midwest.
The ladies are part of Bracket C which includes Peoria Christian (IL), F.W. Parker (Chicago) Lockport (IL), Horlick (WI), Glenbrook North (Chicago), Manteno (IL) and Pattonville, the Class 3 second place finisher in 2010 from St Louis.
