Fremd's girls basketball team remained in a three-way first-place tie for first in the Mid-Suburban West after a 49-28 victory at Schaumburg on Friday.
The Vikings were led by seniors Taylor Glassman (12 points, 4 rebounds) and Gianna Abruzzo (11 points, 6 assists, 6 steals, 4 rebounds) as they improved to 16-6 and 5-1.
Barrington and Hoffman Estates are also 5-1 in the West.
Freshman Ashley McConnell added 8 points, 3 steals, 2 rebounds and 2 assists for the Vikes while Jaimie Groot scored 7 points and Megan Gray 6.
Senior Rachel Kahan led Schaumburg (4-16, 1-5) with 6 points and classmate Taylor Kosla added 5 with a 3-pointer.
Maine West 39, Deerfield 32: Senior Megan O'Neill (15 points, 9 rebounds) scored 4 baskets and classmate Ellen Coogan (6 points, 7 rebounds) added one as part of an opening 10-0 run for Maine West (8-15, 5-2) in the Central Suburban North contest in Deerfield.
The Warriors led 20-7 at the half.
"It was probably our best half of execution and patience all season," said Warriors coach Derril Kipp, who climbed to within 2 victories of 700 for his career. "We got off to a good lead and then the second half was pretty much a slugfest."
O'Neill and junior Carly Martin combined for 7 free throws in the final two minutes to help then Warriors seal the win.
Kayla Kennelly returned from an injury and played in her first game of the season. The 5-foot-10 forward saw about six minutes on the floor and scored her first basket.
Amanda Ollerer chipped in 6 points for the Warriors.
Amanda Hoye chipped in 4 assists for West while teammates Alli Ellwood and Coogan each had 3.
St. Joseph 61, St. Viator 52: Senior Meghan McGrath scored a season-high 20 points and classmate Susan Hohenadel added 14 in the East Suburban Catholic Conference game in Westchester.
Hohenadel made 8 of 10 free throws while senior Mary Calov and McGrath each had 3-point baskets for the Lions (14-7, 4-2).
