About this Article

Here's an announcement that isn't often blared over a high school's loudspeaker: "And for the baseball team yoga is canceled for today." But at Grayslake Central, yoga for the baseball team was in fact canceled one February day as a late afternoon snowstorm wiped out most after-school activities. "A bunch of our guys were in the cafeteria when that announcement came over the P.A. and I think they kind of just covered up their heads," Grayslake Central baseball coach Troy Whalen laughed. "They got some good-natured ribbing from their friends for that one." These days, however, the Rams are serious Yogis and proud of it, thank you very much.
