RAMBLIN' RECK: Football teams find success in postseason

TERRE HAUTE — A little bit of high school football and volleyball:

The regular season ended for Illinois teams last week and the postseason begins this week.

Casey ended the season 9-0 — the sixth time in seven seasons for the Warriors to be undefeated. Quite a record.

The last time coach Keith Sinclair’s team lost in the regular season was 2006. Since then, the Warriors have won 39 straight games in the regular season.

The Warriors are seeded No. 2 in Class 2A for the playoffs and begin postseason play at home against Carmi-White County.

Marshall had another 8-1 campaign, with the Lions losing only to Casey in overtime. The Warriors have accounted for Marshall’s lone defeat in most of the recent seasons.

Likewise, another nice record.

Coach Todd Evers’ team is a No. 4 seed and also will begin the postseason at home but will have a tough matchup to open the playoffs, meeting No. 5 seed Maroa-Forsyth. That team ended the Lions’ season last year.

Good luck to the Lions, Warriors and to Paris, which won five of its last six games to make the Class 3A playoffs and travels to St. Joe-Ogden in a Friday night game.

Red Hill is another team in the playoffs. Terre Haute native Bill Evans has coached the Salukis for a long time and his team takes on Villa Grove in Class 1A action. Good luck to the Salukis.

In Indiana, tournament play began last week and it didn’t go so well for some of the top teams in Class 5A.

No. 1-ranked Warren Central, the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference champ and defending state champ, lost to a ranked Lawrence Central team 35-14.

Warren Central was the only Indiana team to be ranked in the USA Today poll last week at No. 21 but likely will drop out this week.

Other top MIC teams to lose were Center Grove to Columbus East 27-13 and Ben Davis to Pike 45-38 in overtime.

Terre Haute North was one of the MIC teams to win and meets Pike this week. Carmel also won, defeating McCutcheon, and faces 9-1 Fishers in the second round.

North will be joined in action by Valley teams Linton, West Vigo, Rockville, Northview and North Vermillion in second-round sectional action. May they all win and get ready for sectional championship contests.

Terre Haute South, Rockville and North Central volleyball teams will be in action tonight in single-match regionals.

Another team in the regional round is Brown County, which defeated Edgewood in three games to win its first sectional championship. The Eagles face Silver Creek tonight.

Eastern won its sectional as expected, besting Linton and South Knox on Saturday, and will face Covenant Christian. Linton was the only team to win a game from Eastern in the sectional.
