SHG/Washington Game to be Televised Statewide

Saturday’s playoff game between Washington and Sacred Heart Griffin High Schools will be broadcast statewide as a way to promote tornado recovery efforts.

Washington will travel to Springfield for the Class 5A semi-final matchup this Saturday, less than a week after an E-F4 tornado destroyed roughly 1,000 homes in the Peoria suburb.

The game will air statewide on Comcast Sportsnet Chicago, WCIX in Springfield and WAOE and WYZZ will air the game in Peoria. The top seeded Cyclones will take on the Panthers at 1 p.m.
