  • Lake Zurich falls short against Drain, Prairie Ridge Dec 23, 2013 5:27 PM

You get attached to your teammates and coaches. That’s going to be hard to leave.” An all-area softball catcher last spring, Grant also played varsity basketball as a sophomore for the Bears. She came off the bench to score 4 points and grab 4 rebounds Monday morning, as Lake Zurich opened the Mundelein Mustang Holiday Classic with a 51-38 loss to Prairie Ridge.
