49 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 49 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 49. Thank you for calling Rich Township Fine Arts Campus your home during this 2022 Holiday Season.  Lastly, a special thanks to all of the Dipper 49 workers, custodial service staff, security, and ancillary law enforcement for ensuring a fan friendly venue.  Thank you all and let Big Dipper 49 begin!
