Vernon Hills' girls basketball fans won't forget the careers of Sydney Smith and Lauren Webb. Opponents shouldn't forgot that, despite the graduation of the two Division-I players, the Cougars still have a good team. They pushed their record to 2-0 Thursday night by crushing Glenbrook North 65-36 in the sixth annual Cougar Classic in Vernon Hills. "Yeah, we lost Sid and Lauren," Monica Bahlmann said. "But we're still amazing." The 5-foot-10 Bahlmann led the way against Glenbrook North (0-2). She scored a career-high 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting from the floor, displaying a soft touch around the basket.
