The Porters announced their 2015 schedule which opens with a game on March 29th vs. Lemont at Ray Kroc Field in Chicago. This is part of the SWSC/SSC Challenge series that the Porters have participated in the last 3 seasons.
The schedule also features 3 tournaments. The Porters will be in the WJOL, Tiger Classic and PBR Preps Plus tournaments. The PBR tourney is a new stop for the Porters and will see them travel to Louisville, Kentucky. The tournament features 27 teams from 8 states.
The Porters have been accepted into the prestigious 2015 Super Prep Tournament in Louisville next April. Due to a school calender change the Porters could not attend the Miners Showcase in Marion during the current spring break dates.
Instead the Porters will join 24 other teams from Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, Indiana and Ohio in a round robin tourney featuring over 40 players committed to play in college.

FLINK FIELD PHOTOS
Ever wonder why some people refer to the area that includes Flink Field as "The Athletic Field"? The following photos might help explain why. Photo #1 shows the football field that was placed in the outfield each fall. Photo # 2 shows the band in formation in left field. Notice there is no fence and a track with hurdles by the edge of the outfield. Photo #3 show track and field events where the batting cages are today.
