It wan’t so much that the Normal West High School girls JV team lost on Saturday–it was that they were even able to play at all was the victory.
The team took to the court this weekend, just days after they were involved in a horrible school bus crash.
The players were only slightly injured. Their coach is more seriously hurt with broken bones and brusies, while the driver of the truck that hit them and longtime school sports volunteer, Charlie Crabtree, both died.
The school staff saysthey plan on doing a special tribute for Charlie Crabtree in the future.
