Anne Marie Schwahn
Jr., Bowling, Bolingbrook
Schwahn was a casual bowler until high school.
“My mom was a bowler,” she said. “She’d always take me bowling and we’d just have fun with it. When I found out the high school had a team, I just wanted to join. It’s been really fun.”
Schwahn’s high game is a 257, a number she’s topped in a virtual world.
“I like Wii bowling,” she said. “That’s easier than real bowling. I can put up big scores.”
Schwahn was third in the Ray Maxwell Tournament.
Sr., Swimming, Plainfield
Sheehan, a Plainfield Central student, is a fan of the co-op concept.
“I think it’s a great experience,’’ said the captain of a four-school team. “I got to meet a lot of new people.”
Sheehan swims the 100-yard breaststroke, 50 freestyle and 200 medley relay, which may qualify for state.
“That would be a first for Plainfield swimming. It would be a dream come true,’’ he said.
Jr., Wrestling, Coal City
Brown, a returning state-placer, captured his first Interstate Eight title with a tear through the 120-pound division.
“It felt great,” Brown said. “My freshman year, I broke my elbow right before the conference meet, then last year I lost in the finals to (Plano state medalist) Jose Villarreal.”
Brown added to his trophy case with a first-place finish at the Seneca Regional. Heading into sectionals, the junior was ranked No. 4 in the state among Class 1A 120-pounders.
Sr., Gymnast, Lincoln-Way
Duggan, who ended her career with a 20th-place finish at the Hinsdale Central Sectional, said she enjoyed the season. She helped guide some of the younger Lincoln-Way stars during the campaign.
“I came into it knowing it was my last meet and I tried to get everything in and have fun,” she said. “I had one mishap at the end of one routine but I felt like I was hitting it all the rest of the night. I’m happy. ... It was a fun team to be on.”
