Much is made of the trio of nick gil, eric barone and brian pence when speaking of crystal lake south wrestling -- and why not? this group headed by the no. 2 rated senior gil has amassed a dazzling 71-11 record thus far, with gil fresh off a championship ring at the prestigious dvorak invite during the holiday break. but while keeping an eye on these three, one had better not overlook the rest of the gators' lineup, which thursday night in cary-grove proved to be the difference down the stretch during a fox valley conference valley division dual thriller before a big senior night crowd. with nick dorn (182), hunter stroh (195) and roland gastfield (220) leading the charge, the visiting gators outlasted their hosts 35-25 to stay within striking distance of mchenry with a perfect 4-0-0 record heading into the final two weeks of the regular season.
