It wasn’t the result they wanted, but the Scouts had nothing to be ashamed about.
Playing in the regional final in front of a packed home crowd on May 22, No. 3 Lake Forest battled to the very end against No. 2 Barrington, but the Broncos prevailed in the end in three sets (25-20, 15-25, 21-25).
In a back-and-forth affair, it was the Scouts that came out victorious, beating host Glenbrook South 10-8 on Saturday, May 18.
Glenbrook South committed five errors that led to five first-inning runs for the visiting Lake Forest, but the Titans responded well to that early adversity. The Titans (18-12) scored twice in the bottom of the first inning and twice more in the third to cut the Scouts lead to 5-4.
