  • Bolman speaks volumes for Grayslake North Feb 27, 2015 11:36 PM
    Here’s a classic case of hoping word travels really fast. Chances are it will, and it’s largely due to the buzz that Grayslake North senior Brenden Bolman has helped create for the school’s swimming program. The Knights don’t have their own pool, nor do they have a full team. “I can’t wait until word gets back to our A.D. and the school,” Bolman said after qualifying for the finals in two events of the boys swimming and diving state finals held at New Trier High School on Friday. “I wish we had a team, but it’s still great to represent our school and make a name for Grayslake North. The support has been terrific.”
