We have come to the end of the road on Comcast SportsNets High School Lites for the 2011-12 season. We have brought you highlights of close to 400 basketball and football games since August (393 to be exact), along with numerous interviews and features.
We will head to the United Center for our final two games of the season. Check out highlights and postgame reaction from the Illinois State High School Hockey Championships, presented by Hinckley Springs. In the 4:00 p.m. girls championship, New Trier takes on Lake Forest while St. Viator battles St. Rita in the boys varsity title game. The puck drop on that one is set for 6:30 p.m. and can be seen on Comcast SportsNet. Judd Sirott and Steve Konroyd will call the action while Chris Boden handles in-game interviews on the ice.
Be sure to tune in for the latest episode of Drive: The Simeon Wolverines, presented by Greater Than. Jabari Parker and company were the wire-to-wire No. 1 prep basketball team in Chicagoland. Our cameras went behind the scenes with Simeon in Peoria and well show you how the students celebrated at the school this week.
In our Muscle Milk Team of the Week segment, we head out to Hoffman Estates to profile the Conant Cougars softball team. This northwest suburban school has been a softball powerhouse of late, and this years team features two sisters who could take the team deep into spring postseason action.
As always, we will also take a drive down Memory Lane in our Flashback segment, and we will also take a look back at the top plays of the basketball season.
And just think: were only months away from football season starting again! Comcast SportsNet will be back with high school gridiron action in August.
