Hinsdale Central's 2013 spring sports highlight reel
Tennis state title, soccer's runner-up finish among memorable moments for Red Devils
The spring sports season saw a slew of memorable moments for Hinsdale Central athletes. Here are some of the biggest highlights for the Red Devils.
23: Margin of victory for the Red Devils at the state tournament. They tallied 59 points while runner-up Lake Forest scored 36.
Highlight: Seeing Hinsdale Central's boys tennis team win a state title is a regular occurrence, but the Red Devils outdid themselves this spring. Martin Joyce and the doubles team of Eddie Grabill and Harold Martin won championships, and with the tandem of Alex Hagermoser and Peter Heneghan taking second and singles player Michale Lorenzini placing third (after a semifinal defeat to Joyce) the Red Devils set a new state record for team points scored in the state tournament.

.312: Red Devils' team batting average this spring. Tommy Concklin finished with a .450 average while Chris Botsoe (.444) and Matt Muellner (.436) led the everyday players.
Highlight: Behind Division I-bound pitchers Christian Bokich (Miami of Ohio), Adam Dressler (Purdue) and Bobby Skogsbergh (Boston College), the Red Devils were pegged to be a contender in the competitive West Suburban Silver conference. Though they struggled at times, they took two of three from eventual WSS-champ Oak Park-River Forest midway through the conference season to jump into the thick of the race in late April. Central took two games from Downers Grove North in the WSS finale to ensure a winning conference record at 10-8.
