1997 Streaks vs. Taylorville

In 1997, the Galesburg vs. Taylorville game set an IHSA record for girls state tourney attendance. Even though they do not publicize attendance figures anymore, I am confident the record still stands.

IHSA records for single session and for the entire weekend were set in 1997. Back then there were four sessions. Today there are 4 sessions for the A/AA weekend and 4 more for the AAA/AAAA weekends.

My question-- do you think this year's 8 sessions of girls state tourneys will equal the 4 sessions of the state tourney in 1997?

Hint- they don't open the upper deck anymore for any of the games!!

  1. No way. Watching the AA championship game. I think that they're were almost as many at Thiel for the sectional opening round. Wonder how many girls BB teams draw as well as the Streaks. I would guess few.
