Bolen will wrap career at Parkland/N-G all-star game

CHRISMAN — Ty Bolen and Michael Finke will have a brief reunion again on Saturday.

“It will bring back memories,” Bolen said.

It won’t be like the old days, when the two athletes were teammates.

The two high school seniors are no longer even focusing on the same sport as they were in  2007.

As 11-year-olds, they were summer teammates on the Champaign Tribe.
