It’s an interesting 4A semifinal between Fremd (36-4) and Wheaton-Warrenville South (WWS) (32-8) Friday, November 15, at 7 pm. This is a battle of the underdogs as they may not be favorites to win it all, but at this stage of the tournament, anyone left standing can win the title.

WWS has been looking for consistency in the lineup. No doubt, the talent is there and they are gelling at the right time. In 19 years, Bill Schreier has a 420-285 record and a trip to the final four in 2002 where they finished fourth in the state.

Fremd's Coach Curt Pinley has a 504-259-5 record in 21 years of service. In 1987, Fremd made their only trip to the state championship finishing in fourth place overall in the 2A Division. 

Players to watch:

Sarah Burau (2020, 6’0, S, Wheaton-Warrenville South)
One of the highest totals for assists in 2019, Sarah has dished out 884 sets successfully on the season.

Rian Baker (2022, 6'0, S, Fremd)
This team's quarterback is a sophomore, so watch out for aggressive sets and athletic plays. Also, be on a lookout for intangibles such as leadership and experience in big games to play
