Brave the Shave:

There were cuts for a cause yesterday at the Chicago Naperville Marriott, as hundreds gathered to take part in the 13th annual Brave the Shave event held by Naperville Public Safety for St. Baldrick’s. Heads were shaved while hopes were raised at the fundraiser dedicated to providing funds for pediatric cancer research. The event raises about 10,000 dollars each year for the cause.

Track Season Champs

The indoor track season wrapped up with the DVC boys meet at North Central College on Friday. Metea Valley’s Alonzo Taylor Jones proved to be the fastest sprinter of the day, winning the 55-meter dash at 6.46 seconds. Wes York of Waubonsie Valley finished strong to win the 800-meter run. But Neuqua Valley brought home the conference plaque thanks to several event wins, including Isaiah Robinson in the 400 meter, Ife Oketona in the long jump, and a first place finish in the 4 by 400 relay. Neuqua Valley repeats as Conference champs while Wheaton Warrenville South finishes second and Waubonsie Valley takes fifth.
