 The advantage to starting a new season is the opportunity to take the first steps towards a high school dream. You get to start all over, some coaches have said. To many student/athletes at South Beloit High School, the focus has shifted to the winter sports season. The new-year is waiting. There is a plan in place for the Lady Sobos. The same can be said about most or all of South Beloit’s opponents this season; but things just are a little more challenging up north. A lot of new things are going to have to be learned. A new crop of opposition waits. The NUIC welcomes occasional head-to-head battles, but now the attention must be shifted to eastern and north-central Illinois. A large percentage of athletes have already taken their first shots at the basketball season.

The Northeastern Athletic Conference contains suburban programs such as Mooseheart out of the Aurora area, Chicago Luther North and Elgin-Westminster Christian. Many of these teams did wait for many NUIC members to do battle. They would meet up somewhere. When that occurred though, it was typically the first or second round of the State Tournaments from softball to football. South Beloit has to find its identity playing against teams they don’t really know. The question of how a team regains a competitive edge can be answered in the early days of the upcoming season. There are a lot of questions and a lot of unfamiliarity waiting for the Lady Sobos as they prepare to take on game play in the newly-assigned Northeastern Athletic Conference.

Juda, Wis. shows up on South Beloit’s schedule on Nov. 28. One day later the Stillman Valley Cardinals pay a visit. The road turn towards the Northeastern and sets in on Thursday, Dec. 1 as Aurora Christian visits South Beloit to wrap up the early-season home stand. On Dec. 6, the Lady Sobos will travel to Rockford Christian Life. The road-swing runs through the second week of December with games at Crystal Lake-Faith Lutheran on Dec. 8 and at Schaumburg Christian on Dec. 12. A match at Rockford Christian on Dec. 16 closes down the conference season for 2016, with game play against Woodstock and Winnebago to open January 2017.
