Congrats to the 2015 GBW Field Hockey team for earning a trip to the final four! This is a talented group of ladies who are dominated by underclassmen. It looks like they will be a fixture in the state series for years to come. But for now, good luck on Thursday in your state semifinal game against Lake Forest!!!

Lake Forest vs Glen Ellyn...

The loser has to buy dinner at Alinea.

If they make the finals, when and where would that be? I have a kid who would be interested. Since this isn't IHSA, it's hard to find good information online. The IHSFHA web site still has last years tournament info on it.

The final four is being hosted by New Trier High School. I believe the Championship game is set for Saturday.

The site does suck...I get all my info from my kid.

Now that is a 9.4 on the humor scale.

The final four game is tomorrow, the 29th:


We are playing Lake Forest High School at 7pm. A fan bus has been scheduled to leave at 5:30 from Biester, if you would like to attend. Please let me know if you are interested in taking the fan bus; any Glenbard West student may go.

Frankly I'm not sure a bus leaving GE at 5:30 could get to New Trier by 7 with rush hour - but I suppose they know what they're doing...

The finals (and probably the 3rd place match) will be on 10/31. Not sure what time.

It is New Trier - Northfield campus, by the way.

They're so classy they have two campuses.

Isn't that where you went to school? If so, I'm fairly certain the class quotient went up after you graduated....

West girls beat the #2 seed Lake Forest team tonight in an incredibly exciting 3-1 game. They play Saturday for the state championship. Awesome job ladies and my old PE teacher, Ms Judge!

Best of luck to these ladies…it would be a great costume to "trick er treat" later in the day as State Champions!

Finding news about IHSA field hockey is like mining for diamonds. But I did come across this . . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP0pU3pg4YI I was at this game. Never seen a team get so obliterated. It's as if no one showed HC the script.

Field Hockey hasn't been an IHSA sport since the 70's or 80's, so there is a different organization--the Illinois High School Field Hockey Association (IHSFA)--to govern high school field hockey.

But as I pointed out above, their website still has information from last year's tournament. It's like a parent was administering the site and their kid graduated.

Perhaps that's the problem. I'll try again.

Yes, it's not sanctioned yet by the IHSA as an official sport, in fact it's not called Field Hockey by the IHSA but is called Lacrosse. Evidently there are subtle differences between the two, including one is played in the fall and the other in the spring.

The IHSA calls girl's field hockey "lacrosse?" Why is that? That is odd . . . and the IHSA seems wrong if they are doing that.

This is not correct. Field hockey is an entirely different sport than Lacrosse. It's an entirely different sport from hockey, actually.

There just aren't that many schools in Illinois with field hockey teams. It's pretty new in Glen Ellyn, and the recent success of the GBW team is quite exciting.

Having never played either I'll take your word, however the IHSA site lists Lacrosse as an emerging sport, not Field Hockey.

Congratulations ladies!!

Well, that's too bad. BUT . . . . if you're going to lose in the final, that isn't a bad way to go. 1-0 against the top team in the state on their home field.

Great job, West girls!

Looks like IHSA requires 10% of the [~800] member schools to participate before adding a sport.

Thanks NEBF, I quickly searched online for more on "Latin" and the matchup, but as quickly gave up (current Girl's FH info tough to find). Go West!!
