About this Article

As two hungry tennis players exchanged shots on one of Warren's Almond Road campus courts, a plastic platter full of subs and a bag of more sandwiches arrived. Simultaneously, Stevenson's players -- all but Jeremy Bush, who was just thirsty from chasing Kristiyan Trukov forehands -- and the Patriots' three, equally grateful coaches gobbled down dinner. On the court, Bush was hungry to avenge last year's loss in the North Suburban Conference No. 1 singles final. Fellow senior Trukov of Warren was hungry to prove that his upset of Bush was legitimate. In the end, after nearly three hours of wonderful tennis, Bush got to enjoy a 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-4 win -- and a sandwich. His thoughtful teammates had saved him a sub. "He showed a lot of guts," Stevenson coach Tom Stanhope said of Bush, whose win completed the Patriots' 7-0 victory on a sunny-turned-cold Tuesday in Gurnee. "Kris is a great player too."
