This week, the Mustangs competed in their first, and last, regional game. A close one point defeat to Joliet West ended their season. “Overall it was a fun last season,” senior Cheynne Krehl said. “We had a lot of obstacles to overcome but we stuck together as a team and we grew as a team and individuals.” Just a few of the team’s many achievements this season include defeating rival Neuqua Valley and winning against Wheaton Warrenville South on Senior Night.
