The high school season is almost over and we are getting locked in for the State Playoffs. It is that time of year where we start looking ahead and previewing each and every Sectional. We begin today at the top.

Sectional 1: Gary West

The Teams: Gary West, Lake Central, Munster, Merrillville, Highland, East Chicago Central, Hammond Morton

Our Contenders: Gary West, Lake Central, Munster

Player To Watch: Jalen WashingtonJalenWashington6'7" | PFGary West | 2022State#18NationIN (Gary West, 2022)

Prediction: It looks like a 3-team race for this one with Gary West at the top. However, the draw for Munster is going to give them a chance to make a run here. If they can gear up and put together 1 game on Saturday night, they could spoil the show but Gary West is so deep that seems like a very difficult task.  Lake Central got a nice draw avoiding Munster and getting East Chicago first but they didn’t fair too well against Gary West early in the season. They would need some luck, Gary West not playing sharp or Merrillville playing upset in round 1, for them to have a chance.

Sectional 2: Chesterton

The Teams: Crown Point, Chesterton, Hobart, Lowell, Portage,
