SENIORS LOOK TO LEAD SPARTANS


Regional week is a time for excitement as all schools get a fresh slate to start the post-season.  Glenbrook North had plenty of excitement in the state playoffs last year as they upset Libertyville and took #2 seeded Notre Dame down to the wire.  Part of that resurgence was from the play of a four of juniors who will be the key ingredients as seniors this year for the Spartans team.  6-5 forward Kellen Witherell averaged in double digits last season, and missed most of last year's Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic due to illness.  Witherell earned All-Conference honors as a sophomore in the Central Suburban League.  6-1 Max Knebelkamp, a soccer standout, became a starter late last year and handles the point guard responsibilities.  Guards Evan Barnes and Sean Meriagan will also look to make major contributions on this year's squad.  In the past fifteen seasons the Spartans have a first place and third place state trophy and compiled an amazing  110-18 record over a four year period.  This year's senior group will like to write their own chapter of history this season.
