The students took home first place in the class 2A state championships. The competition took place in Chicago.
The team sported their medals and trophies at school on Monday. They became just the second downstate school to win in more than a decade.
Students say they were shocked to take down one of Chicago's best schools.
"It's this Chicago Lab School where it's tens of thousand of dollars just to go there for high school. And they're basically a college to me. And we're just this little public school from central Illinois, farm town or corn, whatever you want to call it," said senior Ben Streeter. "It was really great and feels really good to be able to accomplish that."
This is the first win by a non-selective enrollment school since 2003.
