IHSAA announces 40th annual sectional football draws

INDIANAPOLIS — All but one area team will open sectional play on the road, the IHSAA announced Sunday as it released its draws for the 40th annual state football tournament.
In the opening round Oct. 19, John Glenn will host Culver Military Academy in a rematch of a Week 6 match-up in Class 3A Sectional 17 play, with the winner advancing to play the winner of Gary Wallace at Mishawaka Marian the following week. Also in the tourney, Knox will travel to South Bend St. Joseph’s, while Hammond Gavit plays at Calumet in the other semifinal bracket.
Plymouth and NorthWood will follow up this week’s regular-season Northern Lakes Conference closer with a rematch in the opening round of Class 4A Sectional 11 play, with the winner playing the winner of Wawasee at DeKalb in the semifinals.
In Class A play, Culver Community travels to West Central in Sectional 33 action with the winner of that game advancing to face the winner of South Central (Union Mills) at Whiting, while in Sectional 35, Triton travels to Adams Central and LaVille heads to North Miami. The Triton-Adams winner will play the winner of Fremont at SouthWood, and the winner of the LaVille-North Miami match-up will play the victor from Northfield at Central Noble.
Defending regional champion Bremen is the only area 2A entrant, and the Lions will travel to Lewis Cass in a rematch of last year’s Sectional 26 championship. The winner will move on to the semifinals to play the winner of a Fairfield at Prairie Heights contest.
