Biography: The 1977-78 IHSA State Champions were a rare team. At 33-0, the Porters are one of the few undefeated teams in state history. Along the way, the team picked up championships of the Illini 8 Conference, the Pontiac Tournament and the Lockport Tournament. A question answered by their victories was “during this era could an emotional, methodical team that plays a 1-3-1 zone win the state title?” Although slow and methodical, the Porters were also physical in the defensive sets.
