Springfield Southeast High School is one of three public high schools in Springfield, Illinois, where it is just known as Southeast. It competes in Class AA, the "large school" division, of the Illinois High School Association's (IHSA) State Championship Series and the Central State 8 Conference.

The team was coached by Cathy Groesch, a Charter Member of the IHSSBCA Hall of Fame, throughout much of the 1980s and 90s. Groesch worked with Barron Robinson, who continued to moderate matches when he was promoted to Principal. When Groesch retired, Larry Zobrist took over and had many successful seasons, including a 62-6 campaign in 2001-02. His top player probably was Michael Lommler.

Though the team is still active, the general opinion is that Springfield High is now the strongest team in the city.
