    Grant comes up big, wins NSC title Feb 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    It was a total contrast as Grant’s little guys and Libertyville’s big guys battle for team supremacy Saturday in the 59th Annual North Suburban Conference wrestling meet in Vernon Hills. The Bulldogs held a slim 222 to 220-point lead after the semifinals before they were able to extend that lead to 243 to 226.5 heading into the finals. That’s when Grant’s lower weights took over as the Bulldogs won first-place medals in five of the first six weight classes to build what proved to be an insurmountable advantage over the Wildcats. Libertyville did put together a late comeback with some great results at its higher weights. But it was not enough as Grant captured its ninth NSC crown in 14 years 271-251.5 over the Wildcats, who’d won four of the past five NSC titles. Stevenson (124) placed third while Warren (111.5) was fourth.

  • Sloan, Libertyville savor special win Jan 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    Libertyville’s girls bowling team won its first North Suburban Conference meet in 12 years on Friday. That great accomplishment was especially poignant for the Wildcats’ Taylor Sloan. She’d undergone heart surgery in August but managed to make her way back to compeitition in time to contribute to the team and sport she loves. “Actually, it didn’t hit me until after surgery, three months afterward,” said Sloan, a sophomore. “It’s a weird feeling. I never realized I’d really had heart surgery, until one day, we watched a video in Driver’s Ed class. That’s when it hit home. I went home cried to my mom (Jennifer).” No tears Friday — just cheers and smiles for Libertyville, which won during the 6-game tournament with a team total of 5,125 pins, beating runner-up Warren by 38 pins.
