Mt. Carmel High School's 2017 Road to Peoria— In the 2016-2017 season, the Mt. Carmel High School Aces Boys Basketball team achieved something that had not been accomplished in 90 years. They made it to the State Finals game. Cliff Garrett's team in 1927 had brought the crown home to Mt. Carmel but the intervening years had been lean. The Aces had made only one more state finals appearance (in 1944) when they lost in the first round. From the time coach Tyler Buss handed out their itinerary for their state championship trip during the very first team meeting of the year until they arrived in Peoria, it was an exciting year. In order to preserve the memories of a very special team during an unbelievable year, we have collected information along the "Road to Peoria." Enjoy this collection of memories.
