ASNN - The bouncing ball can be heard again in high school gymnasiums throughout the area with hopes of going downstate in four months.  The season got off to a quick start for several teams including Oak Forest, who snuck by Rich South 51-39.
The Stars and the Bengals opened their season for the fourth time facing each other.

This game demonstrated the tales of two halves... In the first half, the aggressive, fast-play of Rich South allowed them to jump out to an early lead of 29-22. Senior center Colleen Sherwood sparked the Bengals in the third with a 12-0 run including three easy baskets in the paint. Sherwood finished with 12 points, 8 boards and 4 blocks.

Her efforts proved to get other players involved including the 5'6" junior guard Katie Swanson who finished with the game high 16 points.

Rich South's DeAsia Garrett, part of the twin guard play, had the teams' high score with 12.
