Over two years ago, a small group of parents formed a project team with a single goal in mind: to explore ways to expand the use of the limited field space at Glenbard West High School. Appropriately, this small group called itself "Gain Ground." Gain Ground is a group of local residents dedicated to creating multiple-use athletic facilities at Glenbard West High School for the benefit of the entire community of Glen Ellyn. Gain Ground at West is making tremendous strides and is becoming large in size, scope and stature in the Glen Ellyn community.

Congratulations to the laundry list of great Glen Ellyn Lakers teams who just finished their extremely successful Fall season! Glen Ellyn Laker Travel Soccer teams finished in first place at the U8, U9, U10,U11 and U12 levels! Unbelievable! Let's kick some butt in the upcoming indoor season too! Go Lakers!
Well, tonight's another big game for the undefeated Glenbard West Hilltoppers! After destroying DGN during the regular season, the Hitters need to come out strong and fast to keep DGN from gaining any confidence or hope of winning. I think Glenbard West will handle them again though, I'm guessing 28-7 tonight, on a sloppy field due to the recent rain. Go Hilltoppers!
