This season, Carson Sparkman has to deliver more than a spark, man. The Grayslake Central junior came off the bench last season and contributed on a varsity girls squad that won 26 games and a regional championship. Sparkman started at point guard Thursday night in the Rams' season opener against Libertyville in Buffalo Grove's Bison Classic, and her play provided, well, a spark. She scored Grayslake Central's first basket on a driving layup, after she stole a pass, and she not only started strong but finished equally impressively. Sparkman's 8 second-half points helped the Rams pull away for a 46-36 win, after they led by only two points at halftime.
