Today we have the final part of our questions about small, district schools who have fared well in the IHSA tournament.
Do You Know that the final district team to play for the state title, was the school that captured the imagination of our state and began serious discussions that led to the beginning of the 2-Class system for the IHSA in 1972? Who was that team?
The 1964 Cobden High School team arrived at the state title game as the sentimental favorite. They lost a hard-fought game to Pekin High School, 50-45. Cobden has one of the best nicknames in the state--the Appleknockers!
