  • 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.

     
  • 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.

     
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Koto, Stevenson take winning position in NSC Feb 14, 2015 9:17 PM
    He was understandably a little tired after having just competed in the 200-yard freestyle, and then the 500 freestyle a few events later. Upon reflection, though, it’s definitely a position Stevenson senior boys swimming team co-captain Nick Koto has no issues with. “Yeah, a bit tired but I swam good swims,” said Koto, who posted season-best times in finishing second in both the 200 free (1:43.88) and 500 free (4:45.65). Koto also had a season-best split time of 22.26 when he anchored the 200 free relay, which also finished second. There, he joined forces with Alex Kapecki, Viktor Makarskyy and Dimitriy Pelutis. Koto’s performance was one of many good ones by the Patriots, who edged out Lake Forest for a sixth NSC title in seven years. The Pats collected 337 points, while the runner-up Scouts tallied 317.

  • Grayslake North pins down state berth Feb 14, 2015 11:03 PM
    Four pins. That’s what denied Grayslake North’s girls bowling team a trip to state last year. It weighed heavily on the minds of the Knights, who got their shot at redemption Saturday. And this time they didn’t let opportunity slip away. The Knights secured a spot at Cherry Bowl in Rockford next weekend by finishing third in the Rolling Meadows sectional at Brunswick Zone Mt. Prospect. Grayslake North totaled 5,731 pins, while Schaumburg was the sectional champion with a 5,841 total. Runner-up Hersey (5,758) and Hoffman Estates (5,710) also qualified for state.

  • Aoki’s A-OK from 3-point range as Stevenson rolls Feb 13, 2015 11:20 PM
    When glancing at the wall in Stevenson High School’s gymnasium, you’ll see Jalen Brunson’s name listed by most of the individual school records for boys basketball. Well, after Friday night, you’ll obviously still see Brunson’s name on the record board. But you’ll also see junior guard Ryuji Aoki’s name. Aoki was on fire Friday night as he tied his running mate with a school-record seven 3-pointers made in a single game. “Believe me, it was a total team effort. The big men were setting great screens and I was getting awesome passes from the guards,” said Aoki, who wound up pouring in a career- and game-high 30 points during Stevenson’s 102-47 romp against visiting Mundelein on senior night.

    Before a full house for the first day of the Class 3A Barrington wrestling sectional on Friday, Mid-Suburban East and regional champion Prospect along with its division rival Wheeling, took the spotlight. The Knights rode the hot hands of Alex Preissing, Tanner Strobel, Matt Wroblewski and James Ford into Saturday’s semifinals.

    The first North Suburban Conference basketball championship in Antioch history was followed by what might have been another first. Tears of joy by Ashley Reiser. Which the sophomore point guard wiped away as deftly as she handled the ball all night. “Making history,” Reiser said. By “making history,” Reiser meant what she and her teammates accomplished Wednesday night at Stevenson. Reiser’s season- and game-high 26 points and 5 assists led the way in a 68-54 win for the Sequoits, who were playing in the NSC title game for the first time.
