SKOKIE — The Glenbrook North girls tennis team captured the Central Suburban North championship Saturday at Niles North.
The Spartans, the regular-season leader with 31 points, earned 19 more at the conference tournament after winning three of the four flights in doubles and two of the three in singles. Glenbrook North totaled 50 points to beat out Highland Park, which ended up with 43.
The Spartans’ No. 1 doubles team of sophomores C.C. Chatas and Hailey Koretz defeated Highland Park seniors Casey Frommer and Lizzie Raab 6-4, 6-3 in the title match.
“I never said we have to win any matches,” Glenbrook North coach Peggy Holecek said. “I wanted them to be positive and stay focused and play their best. If that translated into wins, then great. All I was looking for was for them to play their best tennis [Saturday].”
Niles North freshman Michelle Bacalla didn’t drop a set during the tournament in winning the No. 1 singles title.
Niles North took third (29) and Deerfield finished fourth (27). Maine East (10.5) and Maine West (1.5) rounded out the team standings.
