Fremd senior starter Catherine Ernst admitted she was a little nervous when the Vikings were nursing a 4-point halftime lead at Conant on Tuesday night. “We knew we had to take a step back, take a deep breath and come back out making the hustle plays,” she said. The defending Mid-Suburban League West champs did exactly that.They kept the pressure on for all 16 minutes and now there’s no pressure at all in terms of the divisional race. That’s because the Vikings clinched their fourth straight West crown by posting a 42-20 decision while second-place Palatine fell to Schaumburg 52-51.
