Winning vibe helps Stevenson past Glenbrook South

They try not to think about it, but you know it's in the back of their minds. "It's kind of hard to ignore," said Stevenson senior pitcher Jake Nusinow, who is referring to the four state titles -- football, boys basketball, boys gymnastics and girls water polo -- that the school has won this year. And Nusinow and his Patriot teammates would love nothing more than to cap everything off with a championship in baseball this spring. "That's obviously our goal and where we want to be," he said. "We don't get too excited, though. It's just one game at a time for us." Whatever the formula, it's working well for the eighth-seeded Pats this postseason. Last weekend, Stevenson knocked off top-seeded Glenbrook North, and on Wednesday afternoon, the Pats ousted fifth-seeded Glenbrook South 6-0 in a Class 4A sectional semifinal in Lincolnshire.
