After a very tight race, this week's Prep Destination winner is Crystal Lake South at Crystal Lake Central!
Crystal Lake South at Crystal Lake Central won with a total of 7,294 votes, which means our crew will head out to the Northwest suburb bright and early on Friday to highlight both teams as they get ready for their game and get jiggy with it on our Dance Friday segment.
Voting ended on Wednesday at noon, leaving Glenbrook South at Stevenson in third place with only 1,750 votes, and Brother Rice at Marist High School in second place with 7,154 votes.
The Central Tigers will take on the South Gators Friday night for their first match up in 5 years!
So Tiger and Gator fans, make sure you head out to Central High Friday morning starting at 5:45 a.m. to show your school spirit, or tune in to NBC 5 News Today to watch!
