How good is this team: After going through a post-modem stage of winning the 2018 state title in the first half of the season, the Tigers reverted back to the championship format that made them into household names on the Illinois scene in the second half. The scorers who rallied around the consistently good Billy Hauenstein became trustworthy in terms of closing out meets. This cast proved that the preceding two meets, state and NXN MW mattered the most. In them, it was a :16 and :34 spread that makes them a top-five contender on championship day. With a little bit more overachievement, we could see a podium finish.
