In Class 7A, Normal Community is coming off a terrific come-from-behind win over Glenbard East in the state quarterfinals. The Ironmen erased a 14-point halftime deficit to pick up the win and are onto the state semifinals for the first time since 2007 where they’ll travel to Downers Grove North on Saturday at 1 p.m.

In Class 6A, the Washington Panthers are headed to the state final four after a dominant win over Chatham Glenwood on Saturday.
