the prestigious DuPage Valley Athletic Conference. The varsity baseball team has been recognized in the stateâ€™s elite final eight, and football led conference standings two of the past four years bringing home the state championship trophy in 2013. Individual tennis players have garnered placements in the state tournament; the badminton team has been a recognized state champion; and this year boys and girls track and field athletes, gymnasts, wrestlers and more competed at state with much success. Local residents are among the first to applaud the schoolâ€™s fine arts offerings including its awardwinning theater program under the direction of Nathan King. The 2016 â€œMary Poppinsâ€? production received rave reviews and was a crowd-pleasing favorite.
Participants in the speech team have been recognized at state competitions for the past two years, and community celebrations wouldnâ€™t be complete without the musical talents of the Glenbard North marching band, orchestra, choir and other groups. Notable alumni include Billy Corgan a musician/songwriter best known as the frontman for the Smashing Pumpkins; Ryan Diem, an offensive tackle for the NFL Indianapolis Colts and the starting right tackle for the Super Bowl XLI champions; Michael Quigley, a United States Congressman representing the 5th Congressional District of Illinois; and Kiele Sanchez, an actress best known for her work on television shows including Lost.
