Vernon Hills aces sectional final test against Barrington
Jun 2, 2015 9:57 PM -
Homework is a dirty word in many schools right now, especially this late in the school year. Well, maybe not at Vernon Hills. The record clearly shows that Barrington had handled the Cougars twice during the boys volleyball regular season. "We might have caused them to call a timeout once,'' joked Vernon Hills coach Chris Curry. But after winning a sectional semifinal over Lake Zurich last Friday, the Cougars (30-9) went into homework mode. That's when they figured out a few things about twice-beaten Barrington, the top seed in the Antioch sectional. As a result, Vernon Hills is headed to the state tournament quarterfinals at Hoffman Estates High School. The Cougars, the No. 7 seed in the sectional, sprung the upset 25-23, 25-21 and will meet downstate O'Fallon at 2 p.m. Friday.
