About this Article
Carmel Catholic hasn't started celebrating, despite the party hats being worn by friends of birthday-boy Nicky Pullano, who sported one himself following Wednesday night's basketball game at Vernon Hills. Pullano's pals, stationed in a corner of the bleachers, stood all game and cheered on their team. Make no mistake, the Corsairs have reason to be happy. They jumped on the host Cougars early, hitting 7 of 12 shots in the opening quarter in building a double-digit lead, and cruised to a 70-44 nonconference win.
