When things are going well for the Glenbrook North baseball team, senior-to-be second baseman Sage Bruhl said an aura envelops the dugout.
Teammates cheer for each other, everyone’s into the game and guys are loose.
“When everyone’s confident and everyone’s clicking, there’s kind of that idea that it’s impossible to fail,” Bruhl said. The Spartans experienced the aura a lot this summer.
Glenbrook North finished its summer schedule 18-10, going all the way to the summer season state tournament in the Phil Lawler Summer Classic. They lost their only two games, falling 4-3 to Nazareth and 5-0 to Prospect last week. The good record and the good dugout vibes were due in part to an emphasis on team play.
Before the summer season began, coach Dominic Savino told his players they needed to focus on the team, and not individual success.Glenbrook North
