without degrading their achievement. Mission has been the top ranked team in the country for much of the year. They just won the toughest district championship in the country. I for one (and note what team my son plays for) simply want to congratulate them for winning the opportunity to represent Illinois and the Central District in Pittsburgh. Their are some tough teams and games ahead of them. Fact is I think Mission have played and beat many of the teams in Nationals. You can never count out W-BS and their overage comrades, which is a topic for another time.
Mission is deservedly going to Pittsburgh and will represent Illinois very well. Congrats to the team.
