The East St. Louis Senior High Schools Flyers Basketball Team won the Super-sectionals on March 6, 2023 in Springfield, Illinois. On Friday, March 10, 2023, the team won Third Place in the IHSA Class 3 A State Tournament.
The students overcame the obstacles of practicing and playing on a court other than their home gym all season and worked hard to make it to the state tournament. The students displayed great sportsmanship and skill. During this journey to state, the students received many compliments through various social media outlets on how respectful and responsible they are.
We are so proud of the team, their coaches, family members, and other stakeholders for their persistence and determination. Thank you all for a memorable season.
