It was the third regional crown in school history and second straight under second-year coach Ryan Kirkorsky.

The top-seeded Mustangs (25-4) advanced to the Barrington sectional where they will face the winner of today's Waukegan regional championship between No. 4 Hersey (24-4) and No. 12 Wheeling (15-15). Meadows' semifinal game will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Senior Jenny Vliet (10 rebounds) scored a game-high 19 points to lead Meadows while classmates Jackie Kemph (11 assists) and Alexis Glasgow each added 17 points.

Glasgow is 4 points of 1,500 for her career.

"Our kids played incredibly hard," Kirkorsky said. "We talked a little before the game about our eight seniors having their last opportunity to play on their home court. And we are very proud how they played."

Ashley Montanez added 9 points and 8 rebounds for the Mustangs.
