Rolling Meadows’ seniors got to play one final time on their home court on Thursday night.
They went out in style, recording an 83-29 triumph over No. 8 Mundelein in the championship game of their own Class 4A girls basketball regional.
It was the third regional crown in school history and second straight under second-year coach Ryan Kirkorsky.
The top-seeded Mustangs (25-4) advanced to the Barrington sectional where they will face the winner of today’s Waukegan regional championship between No. 4 Hersey (24-4) and No. 12 Wheeling (15-15). Meadows’ semifinal game will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Senior Jenny Vliet (10 rebounds) scored a game-high 19 points to lead Meadows while classmates Jackie Kemph (11 assists) and Alexis Glasgow each added 17 points.
Glasgow is 4 points of 1,500 for her career.
“Our kids played incredibly hard,” Kirkorsky said. “We talked a little before the game about our eight seniors having their last opportunity to play on their home court. And we are very proud how they played.”
Ashley Montanez added 9 points and 8 rebounds for the Mustangs.
