SHARE North Shore Water Polo Postseason News

Water polo is on the home stretch of its season.

The IHSA released the playoff seeds and brackets for boys and girls this week. The state tournament starts May 7.

Fenwick is the defending state champion in both boys and girls.

Here are the boys/girls seeds:

BOYS

Glenbrook South Sectional

1. Loyola

2. New Trier

3. Maine South

4. Glenbrook South

5. Evanston

6. Niles West

7. Maine East

8. Glenbrook North

9. Maine West

The one to watch here is the possible showdown between upstart Maine South, in its fourth season of water polo, and New Trier in the semifinals May 11. The sectional final is May 12.

The Trevians beat the Hawks 10-9 in the regular season. Should be a good one.

GIRLS

Glenbrook South Sectional

1. New Trier

2. Loyola

3. Maine East

4. Prospect

5. Evanston

6. Maine South

7. Glenbrook North

8. Glenbrook South

9. Maine West

10. Resurrection

The team to watch, in my opinion, is Maine East. The Park Ridge school hasn’t experienced much postseason success, but the Demons are poised to make a splash in the sectional.

Maine East opens up with rival and athletic big brother Maine South on May 10. If the Demons win, they get Loyola in the semifinals the following day. The final is May 12.

The state championship games for both boys and girls is May 19 at Stevenson.
