In the second-to-last edition of the POWERADE state rankings, Simeon remains where it has for the first 13 weeks of the season: at No. 1. With a super-sectional matchup with Evanston looming, followed by a semifinal contest against the winner of Edwardsville/Bloom, the Wolverines are well-positioned to march into the state championship game this weekend.
No. 2 Proviso East is on the other side of the bracket, two wins away from a potential meeting with Simeon in the state finals. At 30-0, Proviso East is the last undefeated team in 4A.
