  • A super North Suburban finale for Stevenson Feb 25, 2015 11:04 PM
    While Stevenson’s boys basketball was beating every team in the North Suburban Lake Division twice this season, Vernon Hills was busy doing the same on the Prairie side.

They sweat.” Playing in its first NSC championship game Wednesday night at Stevenson, Vernon Hills had the Patriots sweating after one quarter, as the visitors enjoyed a one-point lead. But Stevenson built a 10-point advantage by halftime and pulled away in the second half to capture a 60-39 decision. The victory gave Stevenson (23-3) its third conference championship in a row.
