Friday Focus -   Senior Teach Day
On Wednesday we celebrated Senior Teach Day, where seniors are able to give back by helping to teach class with a favorite teacher.  Some really got into the spirit of pretending to be their chosen teacher!

Glenbard West (160.95) and Lyons (160.75) finished atop the team standings. The seventh-place finish was the highest team achievement in decades.
