My nephews, Lucas and Logan Eitel, helped lead their team to the 2009 Sectional Championship title last night. The Marshall Lions defeated Paris 62-30 to capture the Sectional Title in Illinois' Class 2A boys high school basketball play. They are now 30-0 for the season and one of just eight teams remaining in the state title competition. This is the farthest any Marshall team has ever gone in IHSA tournament play in the school's history. Lucas and Logan have already made plans to play for the ISU Sycamores next year. The Terre Haute Tribune-Star has details of the game here.
