Illinois Preps Insider’s girls basketball top-20: Week 2
Well it sure was an interesting week. Two surprising wins from Fenwick sent one team out of our top-20 and another spiralling out of the top-10. Even with the two big wins, Fenwick’s poor start to the season are really holding the Friars back.
Slight shakeup in the top-5 after Montini lost in Kentucky, but nothing too drastic as the Broncos continue to stampede through everyone else.
Glenbard South was the beneficiary of St. Ignatius’ loss so a big welcome to them.
Finally, Bolingbrook is still a huge question mark. The Raiders have only played five games thus far and haven’t faced any steep competition all year, but when they do play, they’ve won big and are putting up some giant numbers.
The number next to the record indicates where the team was last week.
