By Mike Carpinelli

Four state champions were crowned in Champaign on Friday and four more will be crowned on Saturday.

Here’s a quick look at Friday’s action:

Class 1A: Lena-Winslow defeated Camp Point Central 30-8

Lena-Winslow won her third consecutive Illinois Class 1A title on Friday. With Lena-Winslow leading 16-0 at halftime, Camp Point Central seemed to gain some momentum but both teams remained scoreless in the third quarter. The Panthers scored twice before finally conceding a Crown Point Central touchdown in the last minute of the game to make it 30-8.
