  • Mikaelian, Libertyville climb to the top in NSC Sep 30, 2014 10:27 PM
    Even the best golfers top a shot, say, once a year. “I do it more often than you’d probably think,” Libertyville’s Simone Mikaelian said with a sheepish laugh. On Bonnie Brook Golf Course’s par-3 No. 3 Tuesday, Mikaelian topped her tee shot, which landed in the bottom of a pond. She carded a rare double-bogey. The best golfers, however, don’t lament topped shots, other bad ones or bad holes. By the end of the North Suburban Conference meet, Mikaelian was the top golfer, topped shot and all. Her 80 earned her the inaugural Marlene Miller medalist honor, as the sophomore finished 1 stroke better than senior Annette Yandall, who was the only golfer representing Wauconda. Led by the 5-foot-3 Mikaelian and other all-conference rounds from Megan Sturonas (88, sixth), Katherine Stegman (93, 10th) and Jessica Lovinger (95, 16th), Libertyville capped off a perfect NSC season by capturing the conference championship with a 356. Stevenson (372), which lost its dual meet against Libertyville on a sixth-score tiebreaker, was second. Lake Forest (377), Vernon Hills (381) and Mundelein (394) completed the top five.

  • Lake County roundup Sep 30, 2014 11:33 PM
    Libertyville girls volleyball coach Greg Loika called it a “hiccup,” which his Wildcats overcame to outlast Buffalo Grove 25-20, 17-25, 25-6 in a nonconference match Tuesday night. Alex Basler paced Libertyville (19-4) with 13 kills and 5 blocks, while Anna Lillydahl and Erin Dunleavy added 6 and 5 kills, respectively. The Wildcats’ “hiccup” occurred when setter Liz Apgar went out in the second set due to an injury, Loika said. But she returned in Set 3, helping her team storm to a 6-1 lead. A 12-point serving run by Morgan O’Brien ended the set. Apgar dished out 23 assists, while Sinead Prentiss contributed 5 assists and 12 digs. O’Brien had 19 digs, and Mikaella Faber tallied eight. Nazareth d. Carmel: The Corsairs lost for just the third time this season, as they fell 18-25, 27-25, 25-16 in East Suburban Catholic Conference action. Carmel (14-3, 1-1) received 9 kills and 17 assists from Morgan Meade. Grace Schofield had 7 kills, 6 aces, 10 digs and 2 blocks for the Corsairs, and Grace Butler pounded 6 kills and lofted 13 assists, and Sierra Kepski tallied 14 digs. Stevenson d. Barrington: Jori Radtke had 9 kills for the Patriots in their 25-20, 25-23 nonconference win. Stevenson (14-10) also received 4 kills and 3 solo blocks from Corissa Kurth and 16 digs from Morgan Berland. Radtke and Berland each served 2 aces. Crystal Lake Central d. Grayslake North: Stefani Keilwitz and Emily Smith each had a pair of kills for the Knights in their 25-15, 25-12 loss to the Tigers in Fox Valley Fox action. Cassie Reimbold and Nicole LeBaron tallied 8 and 7 digs, respectively, for Grayslake North. Lakes d. Mundelein: On Monday, Megan Behrendt’s 9 kills and 6 digs helped the Eagles win the North Suburban crossover 25-20, 25-13. McKenna Lahr added 6 kills, 3 blocks and 8 digs for Lakes, and Maddie Demo totaled 5 kills, 14 assists and 5 aces.

  • Rice fits Stevenson’s Cashaw nice Sep 30, 2014 11:21 PM
    The white “Rice 52” jersey with blue numerals and red trim that Connor Cashaw slipped on for his Texas-sized announcement fit almost to a T. No surprise. The Stevenson senior guard would seem a perfect fit for any basketball team. He’s able to play second fiddle to a megastar, able to dominate during stretches in a game, able to shoot from the perimeter, drive the lane, rebound and defend, able to rise to the occasion in big games.

  • Barrington tops Lake Forest in Lake County meet Sep 27, 2014 9:33 PM
    Barrington junior Kirsten Jacobsen hasn’t necessarily turned the corner, so to speak, despite her dominant performance in Saturday’s Lake County meet at Lake Forest. “I was happy to see my time improve,” said Jacobsen, who won the 200-yard freestyle in a season-best 1:52.00. “The one thing I still need to work on are my turns.” Jacobsen, the state record holder in the 200 free, also captured the 500 freestyle in leading Barrington to the championship. The Fillies’ 269.50 points were enough to edge runner-up Lake Forest (257.50), while Libertyville (233) was third. Mundelein (157) and Stevenson (146) rounded out the top five in the nine-team field.

  • Stevenson outruns Lakes Sep 27, 2014 9:42 AM
    Lakes’ unblemished record got nicked and so did its budding-star running back. And then there was Stevenson nose guard Blake Drazner, balancing himself on crutches, his ankle wrapped with ice, and yet somehow smiling, his pain numbed by victory, apparently. “I just got my leg all cut up in the wash,” Drazner said. “It’s fine, though. It’s just a bruise.” In a North Suburban Conference crossover in which it probably had more to lose than gain, Stevenson, the state’s top-ranked team in Class 8A, escaped Lakes unscathed. The Patriots prevailed 21-3 in a battle of unbeaten squads, despite a gutsy effort by its opponent.
