A year ago the Vikings were poised to upset No. 3 seed Metea Valley in the regional semifinals only to see a string of missed free throws in the closing minutes cost them the win. Mike Trimble played in that game, and on Thursday night in the Class 4A Wheaton Warrenville South regional semifinals No. 12 seed Geneva was locked in another nail-biter with No. 5 Hinsdale Central. Trimble drew a foul with 3:27 left in the game and went to the line for a 1-and-1 with his team down 44-43. Trimble calmly made both, the 13th and final tie or lead change of a hard-fought 55-49 Geneva victory.
