The regional tournaments are scheduled to be held between October 19-October 25. The IHSA plans to announce specifics about regional tournament sites, dates and logisitics at a later date.

In other IHSA news, the state also announced Monday that the softball state finals will be moving away from East Peoria’s Eastside Centre.

Peoria’s Louisville Slugger Complex has won the rights to the softball state championships. The Louisville Slugger Complex will host the tournament from 2021-2025.

Eastside Centre has played host to the tournament since 2001.
