Will the Pioneers of U-High, Normal enrollment cut down the proverbial nets on March 1, or will a powerhouse program from the Big City beat back the insurgency? Stay tuned, and tell Gene Hackman to bring his tape measure.
Top swimmers from the Chicago Area schools sometimes learned of new, serious rivals just days or even hours before the big race.
At the State Meet, the entries for many Downstate stars were punctuated by asterisks, indicating that the swimmer represented a school that did not support a team, and therefore would not be eligible to score team points.
These were lone wolves trekking in from afar with the ability to scramble the presumed natural order of things. In an age of steep newsroom budget cuts, even this degree of due diligence may not be rewarded.
Downstate swimmers have often slipped quietly into the State Meet only to take it over. All three boys who have four-peated in an individual event in Illinois were from Downstate: Matt Elliott four-peated in the IM, not the breast. The Fly record later stood at Six years passed before another Illinois boy cracked 50 seconds — this time it was Dan Trupin of Champaign Central in Matt Elliott of Peoria Richwoods escorted the record down to a blistering Infuture Olympian and world record holder Tom Jager of Collinsville lowered the Free record from Jager also established a state record in the Back It took another Downstater — James Wike of Sterling — to crash the 50 second barrier Why Downstate Illinois Has Seldom Produced Top Teams With this rich history of dominant performances from Downstate Illinois swimmers, it may be surprising to learn that the only team champion to come from outside greater Chicago was the team from Rockford Central High School.
One might have expected more Downstate teams to break through, particularly given that Illinois has clung to a leveling format that limits finals to 12 places and holds teams to two entries per individual event.
In many years, a Downstate team with a couple superstars and a few solid contributors might have snuck past the field.
With the exception of the Rockford Central team and second place teams from Rockford East and Peoria Richwoodsevery team champion and runner-up has come from the Chicago Area. The structural reasons for the dominance of the Chicago Area teams are clear. The population of the Chicago Urban Agglomeration is approximately 9.
In a state that does not divide its swim teams into classes, this places a heavy thumb on the scale in favor of the big schools up North. The combined population of three downstate cities with deep swimming traditions — Edwardsville, Freeport and Carbondale — is roughly equal to that of suburban Evanston alone.
The only other schools to win the team championship since New Trier began its recent run are fellow behemoths Naperville Central enrollment 3,Neuqua Valley enrollment 4, and Evanston enrollment 3, Mega-burbs like Naperville pop. These binary fissions can be painful St.
The new schools typically come with competition-grade pools and pre-existing USS clubs to feed them. The team champion inNeuqua Valley, was in its tenth year of existence. Other factors are more subtle. Many who live outside the Great Lakes, Texas and California may have read this far still asking who could possibly care about high school swimming.
One answer is Chicagoans, and the reason may be tied to whether and where pools get built. Evanston raised a veritable swimming cathedral with wrap-around seating and an auxiliary pool that could be used for warming down.
Oak Park-River Forest built two hand-tiled competition pools adorned with statuary. The standard was set.
For a number of reasons, this was less true Downstate, which largely continued to follow the national model of YMCA and club-based swimming and swimming pools. We see the legacy of these decisions decades later: Occasionally, Downstate underclassmen will make big splashes at the State Meet in one year, but decline to return the next.
Due to the close proximity of the Chicago Area schools to one another, many teams sustain fierce, longstanding rivalries with multiple adversaries that help keep kids interested.
Such rivalries exist among some Peoria, Champaign and Springfield schools, to be sure, but they are fewer and farther between. A related factor — as ever — is money.Kyle C Dattola is a Math teacher at Summit Sr High School located in Summit, New Jersey and part of Summit City School District.
