I recently attended a reception for the American Premier cricket league – APCL to discuss my house resolution aimed at making the game of Cricket an official IHSA sport.
Communities across Illinois have taken a rapidly growing interest in cricket. Local leagues and players are filling fields and open spaces inside park districts all over the State. The IHSA adopting cricket as an official sport would capitalize on the growing popularity and give our young people a new outlet for healthy competition and physical activity.
This dinner was a great chance for me to reaffirm my support for their game and I look forward to continue working with them as I grow as a State Representative!
