Minooka fourth finishes famous quartet
JOLIET — What do rock star Chris Daughtry, former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn, and basketball legend Kobe Bryant have in common with the Minooka Indians' baseball team? They all finished fourth in their respective fields at one point. Daughtry was fourth in season 6 of American Idol, Quinn finished fourth in the 2005 Heisman trophy voting, Bryant managed to be fourth in MVP voting this past NBA season, and the Indians finished fourth in state this past weekend in Joliet.
Although Minooka lost both of its state series games this past weekend at Silver Cross Field, they can leave with their heads up high as they bring back to Minooka a fourth place state trophy, their second best place in school history.
"Once you get here, it's disappointing finishing fourth," Minooka head coach Jeff Petrovic said. "But this team has a lot to be proud of. They made a school district and a community all very proud."
