The Bolingbrook Lady Raiders claimed their third-straight state title Saturday and cemented their legacy in the state's history book as one of the most dominant teams Illinois has ever seen.
The headlines and stats were fun to read, but the pictures show something a bit different—grit, determination, triumph, elation and hard work among other traits.
We at Bolingbrook Patch would like to join the dozens of folks across the state to congratulate the Lady Raiders for a truly exemplary season.
To celebrate, here's some of the best photography from this season, shot by the professional photographers here at Bolingbrook Patch.
If you have some photos you'd like to share—maybe your trip to Bloomington to support the Lady Raiders in their championship game or just a family photo at Bolingbrook High School gymnasium after a game—please click on the "Add your photos and videos" link.
All photos taken by Bolingbrook Patch photographers Luis Medina, Emily Sunblade and Jon Cunningham.
