        championship event

     For more than 100 years, the IHSAA has enjoyed
     being a part of the journey to adulthood for thousands
     of young Hoosiers.  Knowing that the student-athletes
     we meet today will be the leaders of tomorrow, we are
     grateful for the opportunity to help them as they learn
     valuable life lessons through athletics.  Special Thanks To Our Host
