If there's been talk of this on the board this summer then i missed it. Has anyone heard anything about who might be participating in a summer league this year?
I really haven't gotten into it yet this summer, but so far this summer, games that I know of have been played at IL Tech, Trinity, and Benedictine. I'm pretty sure Elmhurst will also be in the picture. I went over to BU at 6:00 Mon night. Full teams there were from North Central, Elmhurst, Loras, and BU. I think there may have been a player or two from one or two other schools as well, but they didn't have school shirts on so I couldn't tell. I understand games are Monday, Wednesday, and sometimes on Sunday. I don't believe start times are always the same. I will check with the NCC guys as far as an established schedule is concerned.
Much appreciated, Mark. Do they start around 7:00 maybe?
Benedictine hosted for the 4th and last time on Wed. Remaining games will be played at Elmhurst, IIT at 3040 S. Wabash in Chicago (with parking under the tracks), and Trinity Christian at 6601 College Dr. in Palos Heights. Games at EC and Trinity start at 6:00. Those at IIT begin at 7:00. Here is the remaining schedule.
ELMHURST--6/20, 6/22, 7/3, 7/17, 7/18, 7/20, 7/25, 7/27, and 8/18.
IIT--6/26, 6/27, 7/10 and 7/11.
TRINITY CHRISTIAN--6/29, 7/6, 7/13, 8/3, 8/10, and 8/17.
As of now, 8/1 and 8:8 are Open Dates.
Games are to 11 by 2s and 3s. No referees, clocks or trainers. Call your own fouls.
Besides BU and the other 3 above hosts, schools listed on the schedule as ''Other Participating Programs'' are Augie, Aurora, Blackburn, IWU, Judson, Loras, North Central, Roosevelt, and Wheaton.
Again, schools often do not have a full team present, and players from 2 or more teams are often combined.
*!f past summers are a guide, dates and times are always subject to change.
