Highland Park senior Cole Beermann put it best after he hit six 3-pointers to lead the Giants to a Central Suburban North win against Deerfield Friday night, Jan. 11, in front of a packed gym and a raucous home crowd.

“It was a once-in-a-lifetime game against a crosstown rival,” Beermann said. “It feels great.”

Beermann finished with a game-high 20 points and nearly every shot he buried was a big one against Deerfield.
