  • Forest Park sectional favorite

    Sectional 48, this area’s Class 2A boys basketball sectional, has traditionally been one of the strongest - if not the strongest - in its class in the state.
    It has produced two state champions and one state runner-up in the last 15 years. And one of the teams currently in it, Mater Dei, won the state title in 2004 when it was in another sectional.
    This year the sectional looks possibly stronger than ever. Four of the seven teams in it could go a long way in the state tourney if they survive the sectional.
