45 Years – Shining Brightly

   On behalf of the District 227 Board of Education, administration, staff, and students, we are truly grateful to those who have made the Big Dipper superb for 45 years!  Special thanks to Dipper fans, coaches, players, officials, sponsors, media, and college recruiters for making the tournament one of the best Illinois has to offer.  The people and communities that we bring together provide the secret recipe that is Dipper 45. Thank you for calling Rich South your home during this 2017 Holiday Season.  Lastly, a special thanks to all of the Dipper 45 workers, including ticket and locker personnel, food and custodial service staff, security, and ancillary law enforcement for ensuring a fan friendly venue.  Thank you all and let Big Dipper 45 begin!
