River Forest has a new football coach and someone please answer this question: WHAT'S UP WITH THE BLACKHAWKS THIS YEAR?

It's been five-plus days since Gary Lighthouse lost to Gary West Side in a hotly contested Gary Sectional final game and although Lighthouse coach Thomas Smith says he has moved on from that loss, he still has a few things to say about a problem he had with that defeat which led to the subsequent walking off the floor without shaking hands with the Cougars after the game (would he do the same thing if given a second chance)?
Only three coaches from Northwest Indiana have led their team's the multiple high school basketball state titles. Can you name them? (Jeopardy music starts right.....now..........................) OK, times up.

For the fourth time in five years, West Side wins a girl's high school basketball sectional championship. This time, they beat Gary Lighthouse 64-60 thanks to 33 points and some clutch fourth quarter free throw shooting by sophomore Dash Shaw. LIghthouse got a 27 point game by Daijah Smith in what turned out to be her last game for Lighthouse.
Sophomore Dash Shaw scored 33 points to lead West Side to a 64-60 win over Gary Lighthouse in an exciting Gary Sectional girl's basketball title game Saturday night.

It's been just a little over a week since Morgan Township won the girl's basketball Porter County Tournament. This week's new challenge is winning their own sectional title. To do so, the Cherokees must beat Gary 21st Century in the semifinals, then face a possible matchup with powerful Marquette Catholic in the sectional final.
In this Prep Sports Report interview from last week, MT coach Scott Adams talks about guard Kelsi Lemmons, the Queen Bee's, and other reasons why this has been a special season for Morgan Township.
The man does have a impressive resume. Newly hired Hobart football coach Craig Osika had a great high school career at Hobart, continued that greatness at the next level with Indiana University, and had a three year NFL career. Even the most die-hard Hobart Brickie fan has to be impressed with Osika's background, but that same fan also wonders if all of the above will help Osika lead the Brickies to consistent winning seasons. We talked to Osika about that and about a few other non Brickie issues, including his take on this weekend's Super Bowl.
