Glenbard North tops Conant, returns to state
Feb 24, 2015 9:35 PM -
The spectre of 2014 weighed heavily on the minds of the Glenbard North wrestlers as they headed into Tuesday's Class 3A dual-team sectional matchup against Conant at Niles West. "You bet," said Glenbard North coach Mark Hahn when asked if his team was thinking about last year's sectional, where the Cougars eliminated the Panthers 27-26. "Last season we weren't prepared," said Hahn. "We didn't have the intensity, and Conant did. "But last year was last year, and this year is this year. We weren't about to make the same mistake again." Despite a strong beginning by the Cougars that saw them grab an early lead at Niles, Conant ultimately fell 39-22. Glenbard North advances and will meet Prospect in a 9 a.m. Saturday state quarterfinal at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington.
