It’s going to be a top-heavy SouthWest Suburban Red tournament.

Reigning league titleholder Lincoln-Way Central is forced to contend with another returning conference champ, Lincoln-Way East, as the Griffins transfer from the league’s Blue division to the Red.

In a recent showdown at the 28-team Providence Invitational, East and Central were neck and neck. The programs topped the field with a 305, but East trumped Central on a scorecard tiebreaker.

If that’s not enough, Central’s Tony Kestel and East’s Matt Contey will face-off in a battle of returning individual titleholders. 

“It definitely changes the balance of power,” Joliet co-op coach Ed Larson said.

Blue contenders

Joliet, which competes in the Blue division, can now focus on Sandburg and Lockport. Joliet’s Trent Wallace will be one of the favorites for individual honors. Lockport’s Gehrig Hollatz and Luke Trent, and Sandburg’s Michael Mishek and Nick Adduce should also be in the mix.
