WMBD/WYZZ-TV - NORMAL, Ill. - Normal West has won 24 of its 25 matches this season.
The Wildcats success might be attributed to the players being close on the field and off it. Many have played together for six years.
"A lot of us have played together for a long time," said junior Carolyn Peters. "But also, we mesh together really well and we've bonded. And we're all very good friends on the team. So I think that's helped us a lot, too."
West hosts Mahomet-Seymour in a Class 2A sectional championship match Friday at 4:30.
