South sweeps SEISC Shootout
The Southeast Iowa Super Conference shootout was once again dominated by the South Division. The 2023 shootout was the first since division realignment in the offseason, which sent Mediapolis south, WACO north and Cardinal to the South Central Conference, but in the end, the South Division rose again.
The SEISC South won both the girls’ and the boys’ shootout 7-1. This included a sweep in the No. 1 and No. 2 girls’ games at Southeastern Community College, and a split on the boys’ side.
Along with the two wins at SCC, the South Division won the next five games on the girls’ side. This included a 44-24 win by Van Buren County over Louisa-Muscatine.
The lone win for the North came from the Pekin Panthers. Pekin beat New London 54-40 to end the potential South shutout.
On the boys’ side, Winfield-Mount Union’s win in the No. 2 game against Notre Dame was the only victory for the North Division.
Along with a win by West Burlington over WACO in the championship game, New London, Danville, Mediapolis, Holy Trinity Catholic, Van Buren County and Central Lee all collected victories.
New London and Van Buren County won the two closets games of the shootout. New London edged Pekin 67-66, and Van Buren County nipped Lone Tree 63-61.
