Change at the top. Seeding positions on the line this week as we are two weeks from seeding meetings. Here we go:

1) Glenbrook North (Northbrook) (20-2) (4A): Big win over New Trier (Winnetka) to tie for Central Suburban South lead with the Trevians and huge for New Trier Sectional seeding. Rematch will be after seeding meeting. Visits Evanston Township on Friday.

2) New Trier (Winnetka) (18-4) (4A): Lost at Gkenbrook North (Northbrook) to fall into a tie for Central Suburban South lead. Likely dropped a seed line with loss. Second game with Glenbrook North AFTER the sectional seeding meetings. Another big one hosting #3 Glenbrook South on Friday. Plays DePaul College Prep (Chicago) on Saturday at War on the Shore at Evanston Township.

3) Glenbrook South (Glenview) (18-4) (4A):Playing very well with 7 straight wins. Huge game at #2 New Trier (Winnetka) on Friday. They’ve lost to Rolling Meadows twice this season. Plays Auburn (Rockford) on Saturday at Glenbrook South (Glenview) Shootout.
