Patch recognizes a couple hundred of the Wheaton seniors for their insane smarts, athletic prowess, exploring their inner do-gooder and everything else that makes us proud. And if we missed someone, it's ridiculously easy to add your superstar.
Today is graduation day in Wheaton. Wheaton North and Wheaton Warrenville South high school graduates of the Class of 2012 will toss up their hats, hug, cry, stir and laugh over memories of high school. And if you're just glad that nonsense is finally over and thinking, 'now it's on to the good stuff'—you're not alone, either.

Head coach Ron Muhitch said his team played well at times, but made too many mistakes against a tough Titans team.
CHAMPAIGN—The Wheaton Warrenville South Tigers fell short of winning their third straight title when they lost 21-14 to Rockford Boylan Saturday in the 7A state finals. The Tigers’ (10-3) nine-game winning streak was snapped at the hands of the Titans (14-0), who won the 6A state title in 2010 and their last 28. “Any team that goes undefeated at any level, they are doing some things right,” Wheaton South coach Ron Muhitch said. “They have a 28-game winning streak for a reason. They are absolutely great. When you play a great team, you have to be perfect in what you do. The Tigers didn’t play real well today at certain times. We did have mistakes that kept us from being up to par with a team like Rockford.” The game began with Rockford …

Lincoln-Way East could not top the Thaddeus Armstrong-to-Sam Prete connection that proved to be the game-winning score. Jack Lipinsky sacked the QB three times.
Breaking it Down: The Tigers only scored seven points Friday night, but they were the only points needed to advance to the next round of the high school playoffs.
