This North Suburban Conference Lake Division for girls hoops is getting some attention. Certainly that announcement that former Buffalo Grove coach Tom Dineen had taken the Stevenson job. Dineen’s BG club of 2000 beat Stevenson on the march to its first state championship. Now comes the news that another state champion is entering the mix. Tanya Johnson twice took Loyola Academy to state titles. Twenty years later, Ms. Johnson is heading North to take the Zion-Benton job. Two Hall-of-Fame coaches in the same division will make things that more interesting.
