Back in action, Ciolek leads Wauconda
All that time Stevie Ciolek spent on the sideline last season. Not allowed to strap on a helmet and hit. Not permitted to run drills with his Wauconda football teammates. Then Friday night, when the senior defensive back finally returned to the field for a varsity game, lightning hit Woodstock North. Ciolek — and all of his teammates — would have to exhibit patience again, as the season opener was suspended in the second quarter. On Saturday, the sun shone at Woodstock North and was topped by Ciolek’s even brighter smile. His touchdown return for a touchback provided a much-needed spark for Wauconda, and the Bulldogs took advantage by rallying for a 28-21 win.
