Illinoisians are showing a serious appetite for concession stand porkchop sandwiches, and winning, as nearly 182,000 online votes were cast over a two-day stretch to determine the 16 schools who will advance to Savory 16 in the second annual IHSA Pork & Pigskins Championship presented by the Illinois Pork Producers Association. Last year’s inaugural contest saw just over 150,000 votes for the same phase of the contest.

The top four vote getters in each of the four regions advance to the Savory 16, where the IHSA’s panel of expert judges will now disperse to judge their fare from September 16 to October 21. Normal Community’s A-Train, the defending state champs, were among those who advanced to the Savory 16. The complete list of advancing schools includes:

***SAVORY 16***

Berkshire   Duroc   Hampshire   Yorkshire
Bureau Valley   El Paso-Gridley   Greenville   Iroquois West
Hall   Fieldcrest   Normal Community   Kaneland
Kewanee   Flanagan-Cornell   North Mac   Lemont
Rockridge   Princeville   Olympia   Lincoln-Way Central
