State favorites: Alton, Granite City
A big break as these two teams have shown some great signs during the season, especially Alton and there isn’t too much in the way of competition.
Challengers: Highland, Taylorville
If there is one team that can make a run at these teams is Highland. At the recent O’Fallon Tournament, they finished ahead of Granite City. Taylorville is more of a longshot.
