  • Victory eludes Palatine, courtesy Glenbrook South Jan 8, 2013 12:00 AM

The Pirates trailed by as many as 9 in the third quarter against Glenbrook South after taking an early 5-point lead.

    Grayslake Central's 43-19 rebounding deficit in Saturday's nonconference game against visiting Glenbrook South looked bad on paper. But it seemed to feel even worse in person. "I'm surprised it was that close," Rams head coach Brian Moe said of the unflattering numbers on the boards. "They really beat us up on rebounds."

     
  • A dream finish for Stevenson Oct 30, 2012 12:00 AM
    A longtime dream became reality Tuesday as Stevenson’s boys soccer program earned its first-ever trip into the final four. “It’s a dream — it’s always been a dream,” said Stevenson coach Mark Schartner, who is in his 25th year of coaching the Patriots. “You don’t play necessarily for this moment. You play every game the best you can. The chips fall your way and you get to keep playing. “This season is very enjoyable because of the length of it. But they all have been great.” Stevenson shut out Glenbrook North 2-0 in the Class 3A Glenbrook South supersectional in Glenview. The Patriots (19-3-1) next play Naperville Central (22-1) in the state semifinals, at 7 p.m. Friday at Lincoln-Way North in Frankfort.

  • Glenbrook South pays back BG May 25, 2012 12:00 AM
    With the chance to avenge an early exit from last year's playoffs in an upset loss to Buffalo Grove, Glenbrook South seized the opportunity.

The Titans will meet New Trier in Tuesday's Niles North supersectional.
