  • Bolman speaks volumes for Grayslake North Feb 27, 2015 11:36 PM
    Here’s a classic case of hoping word travels really fast. Chances are it will, and it’s largely due to the buzz that Grayslake North senior Brenden Bolman has helped create for the school’s swimming program. The Knights don’t have their own pool, nor do they have a full team. “I can’t wait until word gets back to our A.D. and the school,” Bolman said after qualifying for the finals in two events of the boys swimming and diving state finals held at New Trier High School on Friday. “I wish we had a team, but it’s still great to represent our school and make a name for Grayslake North. The support has been terrific.”

     
  • A super North Suburban finale for Stevenson Feb 25, 2015 11:04 PM
    While Stevenson’s boys basketball was beating every team in the North Suburban Lake Division twice this season, Vernon Hills was busy doing the same on the Prairie side. That meant Cougars forward Matt Weaver relied on what he heard and read about the Patriots. Sure, the Patriots may be super, man, but they aren’t all Superman (Jalen Brunson aside, perhaps). “You realize, they’re human,” Weaver said. “They bleed just like me. They sweat.” Playing in its first NSC championship game Wednesday night at Stevenson, Vernon Hills had the Patriots sweating after one quarter, as the visitors enjoyed a one-point lead. But Stevenson built a 10-point advantage by halftime and pulled away in the second half to capture a 60-39 decision. The victory gave Stevenson (23-3) its third conference championship in a row.

  • Hollywood ending for Stevenson’s Rudy Feb 21, 2015 9:24 PM
    Kaitlyn Rudy of Stevenson, who made her first trip to the girls bowling state finals, is now the highest-finishing competitor in the program’s history. And she achieved that lofty standing by virtue of a frenetic finish. Going into the final game on Saturday, the Patriots junior was in the 12th spot, just thinking about trying to hang on for a medal. But Rudy finished with an impressive 247 game that moved her up to third place (2,639 over the 12 games) in the girls bowling state tournament at Cherry Bowl.

     
  • Peak performance powers Barrington Feb 21, 2015 8:39 PM
    Right on schedule, the Barrington boys swimming team was peaking. That paid serious dividends at the Illinois High School Association sectional meet the Broncos hosted Saturday afternoon. Barrington led the way with six champions out of 12 total events, all of whom advanced to next weekend’s state meet at New Trier. The Broncos also had eight total qualifiers, the most among a crowded field of strong squads, including Stevenson, which won the team title with 238 points.

     
  • Libertyville’s Gunther takes second at 160 Feb 21, 2015 11:12 PM
    Joey Gunther fell at the final hurdle in his efforts to bring home a state wrestling title to Libertyville. But what a gallant run it was. The Wildcats’ star 160-pounder was unable to solve senior Matt Rundell (34-3) of Oak Park-River Forest, dropping a 3-2 decision on the big stage at State Farm Arena on Saturday night in Champaign.

     
  • Gutsy state finish for Warren’s Basara Feb 21, 2015 10:38 PM
    In addition to the medal she won, they probably should create another one for Warren’s Emily Basara —for sheer courage. Battling through painfully swollen ankles while competing in the finals of the girls gymnastics state meet at Palatine High School on Saturday night, Basara medaled on vault. McKenzie Kehr of Mundelein and Sam Lococo of Carmel Catholic joined Basara in finding a way to the podium to earn state medals, and Mundelein coach Nancy Toland was named the coach of the year by her peers.

     
  • Simeon surpasses Stevenson in Showdown Feb 21, 2015 11:39 PM
    The woman seated next to one of Simeon’s most famous alumni reacted enthusiastically to a foul called on a Stevenson defender and spoke perhaps prematurely. “It’s over!” she shouted. Milwaukee Bucks rookie Jabari Parker, who arrived in Niles West’s standing-room-only gym wearing his excessively large Simeon letterman’s jacket, quickly and playfully grabbed the woman’s shoulder. Parker knew that his Wolverines hadn’t quite yet won Saturday night’s main event in the 20th annual City-Suburban Showdown. Sure enough, Jalen Brunson scored on a drive and split two free throws in nine seconds to cut an eight-point deficit to five with 1:31 left. But after a thunderous dunk by the Wolverines’ 6-foot-7 Edward Morrow, yes, it was all but over. Simeon, the state’s No. 2-ranked team, beat Stevenson, the state’s top-ranked squad, 66-55.

     
  • Libertyville’s Gunther guns it, reaches state final Feb 20, 2015 11:03 PM
    Joey Gunther was a smashing success Friday. The Libertyville senior advanced to the 160-pound state wrestling final after outlasting Trace Carello of Marmion Academy in a marathon semifinal in Champaign. The top-seeded Gunther won 3-2 when he was awarded the 1-point winner as Carello (20-4) was unable to break away from an unyielding hold. “It’s wasn’t at all pretty, but as I said after my quarterfinal this morning, it’s not about style points down here,” said Gunther (36-1). Assured of a state medal, Gunther next tried to become the fourth state champ in Libertyville history. He’ll meet Matthew Rundell (32-3) of Oak Park-River Forest in the title bout on Day 3 of the state tournament.

     
  • Stevenson’s perfect in NSC Lake Feb 20, 2015 11:57 PM
    Lost in the shuffle of a No. 1 state ranking, an undefeated record in the state of Illinois, back-to-back state finals runs and a couple of Division I superstars on the roster is the fact that the Stevenson boys basketball team has some enviable depth. Even its role players are good. Some of them, namely Ryan Rosenbaum and Ryuji Aoki, made a huge difference on Friday night as the host Patriots put what is likely the first of many exclamation points on this season. Stevenson officially won the North Suburban Conference Lake Division by running over second-place Lake Forest, 65-48. The Patriots swept Lake Forest this season and completed a 12-0 run through the Lake Division. They improve to 22-2 overall, with their only losses coming to teams from other states during holiday tournaments.

     
  • Hard-working Hernandez, Waubonsie Valley back in title picture Feb 20, 2015 8:58 PM
    Hard work really does pay off. Especially for Waubonsie Valley’s Angelica Hernandez, who’s seen her bowling average rise by 78 pins in less than a year. Hernandez had a 118 average last March, but she steadily made gains, practicing and working on her game while seeing improvement all along the way. The result was an average approaching the 200 mark entering the state tournament weekend at Cherry Bowl in Rockford. On Friday, the sophomore started off with a 604 series with games of 224, 181 and 199. In the afternoon, she threw games of 209, 174 and 183 for a 566 series for a 6-game total of 1,170.

     
  • Warren’s Basara an all-around success at state Feb 20, 2015 11:12 PM
    NIU-bound Emily Basara of Warren made her first appearance in the girls gymnastics state meet a good one at Palatine High School on Friday evening. The senior, competing in her only year of high school competition, managed to land the third spot in the all-around with a 37.825.

     
  • Callahan shoots Buffalo Grove past Stevenson Feb 20, 2015 11:37 PM
    As soon as Buffalo Grove’s girls basketball season ends, Maddy Callahan will have her long-awaited ACL surgery. “It’s just partially torn,” the 5-foot-8 senior guard, who wears a cumbersome brace on her left knee, said with a shrug. Callahan is in no hurry to stop playing ball, as evident by the 24 points, including six 3-pointers, that she poured in during fifth-seeded Buffalo Grove’s thrilling, 59-55 win over No. 4 Stevenson in the Class 4A Carmel Catholic regional final Friday night. The victory earned Buffalo Grove (21-10) a berth in Monday’s 7 p.m. Palatine sectional semifinal against fellow Mid-Suburban League member Fremd (24-4), which is the No. 1 seed.

     
  • City-Suburban Showdown has certainly weathered well Feb 19, 2015 3:20 PM
    Amid the glut of showdowns, showcases and shootouts on the high school boys basketball landscape, the City-Suburban Showdown continues to be the standard-setter as it takes place for the 20th time Saturday night at Niles West High School. This year’s doubleheader is no exception with the highly anticipated matchup of Stevenson and Villanova-bound Jalen Brunson against six-time state champion Simeon at 8 p.m. and Lake Forest and double-double machine Evan Boudreaux against Highland Park at 6 p.m.

     
  • Mundelein finding ways to enjoy the struggle Feb 19, 2015 9:55 PM
    Staying upbeat during a 2-25 season isn’t easy. So Mundelein coach Corey Knigge has gone out of his way to make sure his players are having some fun off the court. “We’ve had two rough seasons in a row,” said Knigge, referring to last year’s 2-28 campaign and the 0-11 mark in North Suburban Conference play this is part of this year’s two-win season. “We want the kids, especially our seniors, to have some good memories of this season.” On Wednesday, Knigge took his team down to Loyola University to a men’s game against Northern Iowa, which features former Mundelein standout Robert Knar. Last week, the Mustangs made their first trip to Loyola, to watch another former Mundelein star, Sean O’Brien, a sophomore at Southern Illinois.

     
  • Grayslake Central’s Makey making good in third downstate trip Feb 19, 2015 9:49 PM
    It’s easy to dwell on the rich wrestling tradition of Lake County’s perennial powers such as Libertyville and Grant. But there’s certainly room for more in that category, and Grayslake Central’s fast-growing program would love to join it. With competitors like Jon Makey around, the Rams certainly have taken a step in that direction. Coach Mark Stewart and Makey, a four-year veteran of the program, have formed a terrific partnership. And now, after the first day of the wrestling state touranment, Makey has broken new ground with his first state tournament victory. The senior now turns his attention to bigger and better things. Makey (41-3) will meet Chase Vosburgh (42-0) of Mt. Vernon in the 11 a.m. Class 2A quarterfinal session with an opportunity to enhance his chances at a state medal.
