Glenbrook South d. Fremd: The host Vikings dropped a close one, 93-92, in a nonconference matchup featuring two good friends as head coaches.
Fremd's Andrew Kittrell is a Glenbrook South grad and has had a great relationship with Titans coach Keith MacDonald.
"I always admire how he coaches his kids," Kittrell said. "He, along with his staff -- Kim Kiraly, Laura Duffy (diving coach), and Brittany Ethington -- make terrific competitors and teammates and always bring out the best in us."
Ethington is the daughter of former Barrington coach Jim Bart.
"As a Glenbrook South alumni, it's fun to see him in navy and gold supporting his daughter," Kittrell said.
It was a good night purely on a results level as well for Fremd.
Among the event winners were junior Sophia Kuehn (IM and 100 back), senior Kristina Buzuloiu (100 fly) and freshman Adrianna Buzuloiu (100 breast).
"We've had two good meets in three days, and I am happy with the way our kids take care of one another, and never give in," Kittrell said. "Our girls are so scrappy and fun to coach."
