Returning to the wrestling mat has been a stress reliever and a source of joy during a painful time for Lincoln-Way East sophomore Dominic Adamo. Still, it can be tough to look toward the stands and see who is missing.

Adamo’s older sister, Gabby, died last November after a fight with leukemia. Gabby Adamo, an East graduate and former cheerleader, was just 22.

“It’s really tough going out there and knowing she’s not there cheering me on,” Dominic said. “But I know she is still one of my biggest fans.”
