It’s 3 for No. 4

Date: Friday, June 12, 1987

Location: Lancaster Gym, Dixon

Score: Blue team 92, Red team 73

MVP: Mike Blaine, Dixon, 27 points, three 3s

Recap: The 1987 game offered a sneak peek for fans, as it was the first with the new 3-point line that was instituted in the IHSA the next season. The Red team made more, but the Blue team won the rebounding battle 57-41, led by Polo’s Chris Dusing’s 13. Amboy’s Derek Jacobson won the first 3-point contest, making 7-of-15. AFC’s Mike Smith led the Red team with 21 points. The Blue team was coached by Glenn McPherson (Dixon), and the Red team by Tom Allen (Newman).

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
