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. Today, we look at Regional 5.


Sectional 17: Calumet

The Teams: Lighthouse CPA, Calumet, Hammond, Griffith, Gavit 

Our Contenders: Hammond 

Player To Watch: Harold Woods Harold Woods 6'3" | SF Hammond | 2021 State IN (2021)

Prediction: This Sectional is all Hammond here. They are currently the number 1 ranked team in 3A and have won 13 straight as of this writing. It also helps them that they received a bye and will play the winner of Griffith and Gavit game, both of whom Hammond should role past with ease. Then on the top part of the bracket you have the game of Lighthouse and Calumet in which Calumet should win pretty easily. That sets up Calumet and Hammond in the finals with Hammond winning it all there. Jarrell Johnson and Calumet may put up a good fight at the start but in the end Hammond is just too loaded with players like Harold Woods Harold Woods 6'3" | SF Hammond | 2021 State IN and Darrell Reed Darrell Reed 6'7" | PF Hammond | 2021 State IN leading them. 


Sectional 18: New Prairie

The Teams: Kankakee Valley, Knox, Hanover Central, River
