Hinsdale Central shot a team score of 316 to win the IHSA Sectional title. Lincoln-Way East (342) and Lyons Township (344) finished second and third, respectively. The top three teams from each of the IHSA’s four Class AA Sectionals advanced to state finals competition, along with the top 10 individuals from schools that did not qualify for state finals team competition.
