Sports are in full swing this spring, evident by a number of Chillicotheans and former Chillicotheans making the news.

Posted Tuesday by the State Journal Register, University of Illinois sophomore Jordan Parr, a Chillicothe IVC graduate, is leading the Illini with his .366 batting average. See article here.

A former Grey Ghost, Tom Razo, did a Q&A with the Herald News. He is the Lockport boys' track and field coach. See article here.

And, of course, the conference talk continues in a story by the Peoria Journal Star about a merger of the Mid-State 6 (which IVC is currently in for football only one more season) and the Western Big 6.

And, though it’s not sports related, spring would not be complete without a mention of Summer Camp, set for Memorial Day weekend.

The Chicago Music Examiner wrote a piece about the Chillicothe music festival. See article here.
