Every week, we cover a different sport and talk to each coach at the varsity level. This week, we're highlighting girls golf. With the conclusion of the regular season, Fenwick, Trinity, and OPRF's golf squads competed in regionals on Oct. 10. Here's what the varsity head coaches had to say about their team's performances this past weekend and what it means moving forward.
On a cold and windy Friday night at Oak Park Stadium, in a homecoming game that had huge playoff ramifications, the OPRF football team hosted Downers Grove North. Unfortunately for the Huskies, they fell in a hard-fought battle to the Trojans 14-7 as OPRF wide receiver Gavin Tunney was stopped just outside the DGN goal line on a 4th-down pass play in the waning seconds.
After Fenwick's 17-9 win against St. Patrick, one thing has been made clear: head coach Gene Nudo will not be sporting his classic mustache until his team loses.
Every player on Oak Park and River Forest high school's varsity soccer had a reason to celebrate on Senior Night after beating the top-ranked team in the state on Oct. 10. St. Patrick (19-1-2) hadn't lost a game all season before the Huskies took them out with a 2-1 victory.
