Quote: “This Northridge team can be outstanding this year; potentially as good as the 2009 team that advanced to the IHSA Class 2A “Sweet Sixteen.” We have four very experienced seniors returning and have several solid juniors and sophomores. The key will be the leadership of the seniors in helping the underclassmen improve.’’ – Northridge coach Will Rey
Predicted finish: North Shore, U-High, Northridge, Latin, Parker, Morgan Park Academy, Elgin Academy.
