Wheaton Warrenville South’s Thomas Jaeschke said the Tigers would not allow themselves to think about a mythical national championship until they won the Illinois state title.

<![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: Glenbrook North holds off Minooka in state semi ]]> Luke Jacobson’s thunderous, nearly-vertical kill might not have been the difference in the match, but it sure felt like it was. Jacobson’s kill helped Glenbrook North fight off one set point at 24-22 in Game 2 of its IHSA boys state volleyball tournament semifinal match with Minooka, and after a hitting error by the Indians erased the second, the Spartans went on … ]]> Sat, 02 Jun 2012 17:23:42 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/12937111-393/boys-volleyball-glenbrook-north-holds-off-minooka-in-state-semi.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/12937111-393/boys-volleyball-glenbrook-north-holds-off-minooka-in-state-semi.html <![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: Pat, Kyle Bedford help Glenbrook North knock off Brother Rice ]]>
Tim Bedford may never be able to come home now.

<![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: WW South puts perfect record on line in state quarters ]]> Glenbard East may have lost to Wheaton Warrenville South more than most teams and certainly most recently, but the Rams are not the only team to feel the Tigers’ wrath this season. “They have 12 seniors who are a very determined group,” Glenbard East coach Marci Maier said. “They have a bitter taste in their mouths from last year, and as with … ]]> Thu, 31 May 2012 19:10:11 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/12897890-393/boys-volleyball-ww-south-puts-perfect-record-on-line-in-state-quarters.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/12897890-393/boys-volleyball-ww-south-puts-perfect-record-on-line-in-state-quarters.html <![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: Glenbrook North sweeps Glenbrook South in straight sets to claim sectional crown ]]> Luke Jacobson was at Hoffman Estates as an eighth-grader to watch his older brother play at the state tournament. The Glenbrook North senior will be back there Friday as a player after the No. 2-ranked Spartans captured the sectional championship Tuesday with a 25-17, 25-16 victory over neighboring rival Glenbrook South in Northbrook.

In doing so, the No. 2 Spartans cruised to a 25-19, 25-7 victory and a regional title. “I felt like the second game we … ]]> Wed, 23 May 2012 22:32:00 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/12735707-393/boys-volleyball-glenbrook-north-cruises-past-prospect.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/12735707-393/boys-volleyball-glenbrook-north-cruises-past-prospect.html <![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: Third time’s a charm for Glenrook North at Brother Rice ]]>
Having advanced to the championship match of the Brother Rice Smack Attack for a third straight year, Glenbrook North’s Luke Jacobson decided he’d had about enough.

<![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: Glenbrook North’s Bedford brothers emerge as twin terrors ]]>
Kyle and Pat Bedford both clearly remember when older brother Tim played at the state tournament in 2008. So much so, most of what the Glenbrook North senior twins think about is wanting to get back to Hoffman Estates in June as players themselves. “Ever since I saw my brother play there, it’s been a goal of mine to play there,” said … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: Pat Bedford leads Glenbrook North to Tiger Classic medal play ]]> Chris Cooper thought Glenbrook North caught a break Friday when Naperville Central’s starting setter was sidelined with an injury. But the Spartans coach might have been understating his own team’s talent at the same time. It’s hard to imagine even the 6-5 Albert Lei making that big of a difference in Glenbrook North’s 25-14, 25-14 win over the Redhawks at Wheaton Warrenville … ]]> Fri, 30 Mar 2012 21:08:14 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/11628979-393/boys-volleyball-pat-bedford-leads-glenbrook-north-to-tiger-classic-medal-play.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/boys_volleyball/11628979-393/boys-volleyball-pat-bedford-leads-glenbrook-north-to-tiger-classic-medal-play.html <![CDATA[ Boys Volleyball: WW South rallies for Bison Battle title ]]>
Wheaton Warrenville South’s Matt Callaway took a ball off the face in Game 1 against Glenbrook North in the championship match of the Bison Battle Saturday at Buffalo Grove.

Dealing with a key injury to a starter in the team's state championship run last season, Marist's depth proved to be a deciding factor in winning the programs second title.

There was not much Trevor Ponticelli could do but watch while his Glenbrook North teammates fell behind Brother Rice 9-5 in the third game of the teams' pool-play match Friday at the Tiger Classic in Wheaton. "Obviously, we weren't playing well," the 6-foot-2 junior rightside hitter said. "We had a little trouble serving. Coach (Chris Cooper) was yelling at us to man … ]]>
