  • Powerful Glenbard North prevails whatever the weather Feb 2, 2014 12:00 AM
    The latest conference coronation for the Glenbard North wrestling team simply had to wait a day. “We almost didn’t have a conference tournament,” Glenbard North coach Mark Hahn joked after the Panthers crowned six champions and placed five other competitors in the top three. “We had that really, really bad blizzard — two inches.” Glenbard North added to its storied legacy with its 16th consecutive DuPage Valley Conference championship Sunday afternoon in Naperville. The Panthers’ 269 tournament points — augmented by its flawless regular-season dual record — easily outdistanced Glenbard East and Wheaton North, who were tied with 178.5 points. Lake Park, Naperville North and Wheaton Warrenville South had a champion each in placing fourth through sixth.
