The Metro Girls High School league regular season is underway! This year we have 13 teams in the Metro Girls league, including Barrington, Chicago Romans, Evanston, Fenwick, Glenbrook, Grizzlies, Lake Forest Academy, Lake Forest High School, Loyola Academy, Maine Township, Naper Valley, New Trier and Warren.
The tiering round is currently underway and upon completion, the league will be divided into two divisions, Scholastic and Founders. It is sure to be a very tight contest again this year to determine where the teams will end up.
The tiers will be decided just after Halloween and the second half of the season kicks will kick-off in early November. The teams then enter the Metro playoffs and championship series. In addition, all eligible teams will compete in the Blackhawk Cup in March.
