The spring sports season has concluded and with it the school year. Before summer camps get started and before looking ahead to next school year, let's take one more look at the best moments from the spring sports season for Riverside Brookfield.

1. Volleyball wins second regional title

The regular season was one to forget for the RB boys volleyball team, but the postseason draw offered an opportunity. RB was drawn into the Morton sectional, which was a welcome change from the tough further western suburban sectional the team was in last year. The Bulldogs were given the No. 4 seed in the sectional and won a regional for the second time in program history. Senior Mike Chaney played a big part by finishing with the most kills in a season for RB.

2. Boys track defends conference crown

Entering the outdoor season, RB boys track coach Tim Olson said his team still had a chance to win a conference title but that Glenbard South was the clear favorite to win the Metro Suburban Conference outdoor meet. However, the Bulldogs came through on the day it mattered and won five individual conference championships and also won a relay to take home the MSC title. RB also qualified a relay and six individual entries to state, including Gerrand Moody and Lewis Rogers advancing in both hurdles races.

3. Kincanon leads RB to regional win

The Riverside Brookfield baseball team wasn't able to defend its Metro Suburban Conference title, but made a strong showing in the postseason. Thanks in part to ace pitcher Will Kincanon, the Bulldogs won a regional title for the second year in a row and sixth time in the past seven years. Kincanon pitched in the regional final against favored Clemente, limiting the Chicago school to just one run while the offense exploded for nine runs.

4. LaBelle represents girls track at state

Junior Jackie LaBelle carried the RB flag in Charleston for the Class 3A girls track state meet. LaBelle was second in pole vault at the Lyons Township sectional to book her place at state. It was her second state appearance in a row.
