    I want to note a couple of Championships omitted from this list, both of which belong to Pleasant Plains. They defeated Herrin 50-47 in OT to win the 2001-02 Class A Boys Basketball title. In 2013-14, they won the Class 2A Baseball title in a rain-shortened 5 inning contest against Byron, winning 7-1.

      Mr. Barlow: Thanks very much for the corrections. I apparently missed those the first time I put this list together back in 2015. I’ll make the corrections (and credit you for catching the errors). And it looks like I better go back over all the decades to make sure I didn’t leave any others out.
