No SIAC football teams in regional first time since 2002

After North, Reitz, Bosse and Mater Dei’s football teams all went down in sectional championship games on Friday night, it send us scrambling to the record book.

It marked the first time since 2002 that no SIAC team won a sectional title and was competing in a regional. Before that, you have to go all the way back to 1981 to find a SIAC team not competing in a regional.

Does this mean the SIAC was down this season, or the area was up?

On the flip side, four (Bosse, Castle, Mater Dei and Reitz) SIAC teams all won sectional titles in 2010. That is the most in one year. Ten different times, the latest in 2011, three teams won sectional championships.
