  • Grayslake North survives another stern test from Grant Mar 2, 2015 10:56 PM
    Good news all the way round for Grayslake North. First of all, the Knights’ boys basketball team has advanced to Wednesday’s regional matchup with home-standing Fremd.

On Monday night, underdog Grant took a halftime lead, this one 30-27. With less than three minutes to play, the Grant lead was 56-51. Yet once again, the Knights rallied to beat Grant again by 6 points, 65-59 in a Class 4A regional opener in Palatine. Just maybe the teams are too much alike.
