1. Oak Lawn needed it. After beating T.F. South in every phase of the game Friday and doing it with absolute confidence, the Spartans can put that loss to Hillcrest in the rear-view mirror and rest assured they are what they thought they were: a team worthy of a high Class 4A sectional seed. Hopefully, coaches from the other teams will see that, too.
2. Marist is growing up. It was only one victory on a night when everything nicely aligned, but Marist showed a maturity and “team” concept possibly better than on any game night this season Wednesday in beating Mother McAuley. Brooke Wyderski did a lot (20 points, 14 rebounds), but she didn’t have to do it all. Tehya Fortune, Madison Naujokas and Kately Rosner were three of many helpers.
3. Seton sisters are sizzling. Sandburg might have twins, but Seton has a set of sisters helping the Sting toward the GCAC White title. Senior Ebony Bailey had a fantastic week with 23 points against Gordon Tech and 16 against St. Benedict. Her younger sister, Danielle, a sophomore, had 15 points to add to Ebony’s 14 in a win over Mount Assisi. The Sting is 4-0 in league play.
