    Half of the baseball semifinalists are from private schools:

    1A - 3 of 4
    2A - 2 of 4
    3A - 2 of 4
    4A - 1 of 4

    Private schools need to use wood bats next year?

    Rita beat a very good Fremd team. Feel bad for the Fremd kids (live next door to the school), but I gotta root for my CCL brethren.

    The CCL is very well represented in the state HS baseball finals. Do they have multipliers for baseball? Asking for a friend.

    there has to be a baseball/softball multiplier or success factor basis in there somewhere. Below are IHSA softball/baseball classifications

    1A: up to 279.00
    2A: 279.01 to 564.30
    3A: 564.31 to 1462.00
    4A: 1462.01 and over

    Providence was 4A for both softball and baseball this past year. Enrollment is around 850ish which squarely puts them in 3A based on bodies.

    The softball team had 2 final four appearances in the recent past which pushed them up to 4A. Baseball had three state titles and one 2nd place in last 9 years which has kept them up in 4A. I hear rumblings that Providence may be 3A classified in baseball next year.
