That's a no-no
In baseball action on May 11, Glenbrook North senior N.J. Gott, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound pitcher, threw a complete-game no-hitter.
Leading the Spartans past host Glenbrook South in a 7-0 win in Glenview, the right-hander struck out nine batters while walking only two.
Earlier this season, on April 29, Glenbrook South's Brad Crawford and Aidan Splear combined on a no-hitter in a 7-0 win at Deerfield.
Crawford earned the victory, throwing 6 innings of no-hit ball while striking out seven.
Sullivan rings it up
At the Illinois High School Association boys gymnastics state finals last weekend at Hoffman Estates High School, Glenbrook North senior Kian Sullivan tied for third in the rings competition.
Sullivan's score of 8.9500 tied him with Mundelein junior Braeden Katz, behind champion Nate Mabry of Hersey (9.5500), a sophomore, and Lake Park junior Karl Vachlin (9.4500).
