Fenwick is a selective Dominican Catholic private high school in Oak Park, Illinois, a near-west suburb of Chicago. Fenwick competes as a member of the South Metropolitan Scholastic Bowl League (SMSBL). They notably fell victim to the Screwup on Western. They were coached for many years by Tom Draski, who retired circa 2011. Colby Burnett, who once won a stacked Masonic Sectional playing with a single teammate who barely answered any questions, played for and then coached for Fenwick.


For a few years circa 2006, Fenwick hosted an annual tournament colloquially known as "The Fenwick Bloodbath" for the large number of high-quality Illinois teams it drew. Fenwick also occasionally hosts IHSA and Masonic regionals and sectionals.
