Sectional Travel

Recommended Posts

In Sectional 39, on the upper side of the bracket, Clarksville and Providence are only 1 mile apart while Eastern (Pekin) plays Union County and travels 138 miles for that game. Eastern’s trip may be the longest for a sectional game in the first round. Anyone know of a longer trip for first round game?

My understanding is that a Pekin left 30 minutes after Friday nights final game and has hired Indiana Jones, 100 pack mules and several guides for the trip.

Even then, they may never be seen again.

It's close, but Castle has to go to Bloomington North, while Evansville North has to go to Bloomington South. The distance is around 120 miles from Evansville to Bloomington , but it obviously varies a little from those two schools depending how far they have to travel to get on I-69.

Try Farmersburg to their game with Rock Creek, who plays their games in Jeffersonville.

The shortest way is 138 miles, but the “fastest” way is 170 miles.

I69 is a game changer. For us, cruise set at 85, no traffic, no police, and you better have plenty of gas when you get on, not many exits either.

AD told us last night the have scheduled a charter and leaving early afternoon. Tough drive for parents and fans, hopefully a large contingent makes the trip.
