As the state-ranked Rolling Meadows girls basketball team prepared for the Class 4A Libertyville sectional last Saturday, music was blasting on the speaker system as the Mustangs went through a practice scrimmage in its own gym. “That really helps,” said Mustangs junior forward Jenny Vliet. “That's what sounded like here in the gym. It's really loud.” Vliet quietly went about her business Thursday night in the championship game against No. 2-seeded Fremd. Amid a late fourth-quarter rally by the Vikings, she made four huge free throws which helped the top-seeded Mustangs put away a 59-50 victory for the biggest win in the program's postseason history.
