Vikings Make History


Byline: John Lemon jlemon@dailyherald.com

ItAEs time to see how that Sea of Blue looks in Red.

For the first time in school history, GenevaAEs girls basketball team is headed to state u the first time any Vikings basketball team is state-bound in 46 years.

The VikingsAE defense suffocated New Trier early in the Class 4A Loyola University supersectional Monday night, building enough of a lead to overcome a shaky final three minutes and win 54-49.

Geneva (32-0) will play Young at 8:15 p.m. Friday in the Class 4A semifinals at Redbird Arena in Normal. Young won on a 3-pointer at the buzzer 78-76 in double overtime over Marian.

Pretty good, pretty exclusive, company.

"I almost canAEt believe it," Geneva coach Gina Nolan said. "I said when the fourth quarter started it would be the longest eight minutes of my life. They put a good fight at the end and got hot shooting but I credit our composure. At this point of year it doesnAEt matter how pretty it is at end, it just matters who wins. …
