Throughout Chicago, CPS students are excelling both in the classroom and on the playing field. They embody the hard work, dedication and perseverance of teamwork that lead to life accomplishments. I congratulate the Simeon High School boys basketball team for their outstanding win this weekend. We are proud of the spirit and determination this team showed on and off the court. I also want to applaud the support the team was given by the Simeon student body, Principal Sheldon House, his administrative team and the school’s staff.
- The Simeon High School boys basketball team won the Illinois High School Association 4A championship against Proviso East.
-This is Simeon’s sixth state title, an IHSA record, and their fifth in seven years.
