Season outlook: Wheaton North coach Dave Eaton summed up the sentiments of many coaches. "We are really excited to just finally be able to have a season. These girls have been through a lot over the last 11 months and it is great to be able to say we have a game this week." It's going to take that kind of perspective to enjoy this season and not dwell on what's missing - especially with so many local teams poised for what could have been sectional-winning, or better, seasons. Timothy Christian and Lisle certainly are in that group in the smaller classes along with Benet, York, Glenbard South and several other larger schools.
