Illini West Tournament Trivia:

The Chargers have made an appearance in the trophy round in each of the last six tournaments. They are 2-4 in the trophy round during that time.

During a four-year stretch (2010 - 2013), an unseeded Charger team knocked off a seeded team in tournament action.

Illini West has met up with West Hancock on the final day of the tournament in three of the last four years.

Carthage, Dallas City & LaHarpe are all part of Illini West High School. LaHarpe had never been a tournament participant while Dallas City was entered in the tournament from 1947-1950. Dallas City never did take home any tournament hardware.
