Glenbard West (Glen Ellyn) takes care of business!!!!! News and notes December 21st, 2022!!!
Some of the players from the Class 4A Championship team from last season were in the house tonight. They are home from college or prep school for a few days. Mr Basketball Braden Huff from Gonzaga, Ryan Renfro from Army, and Bobby Durkin from IMG Academy. They were here supporting former teammates. A new era here at Glenbard West, the bench crew from last year who had the unique moves and cheers from the bench are on the court now. Alas they showed tonight they are more than cheerleaders, they can actually play some good basketball as they did tonight. Matter of fact they have most of the early season. Here we go:
