  • There’s no debate: These Lake County teams have it all Mar 3, 2013 1:21 AM
    In advance of next week's all-area boys and girls basketball teams, here's a warm-up list of players who truly have it 'all.'

  • Three cheers for Lake Zurich’s Bradley-bound Schroeder Feb 26, 2013 11:23 PM
    A Daily Herald All-Area third baseman since her freshman year, athletic Lake Zurich junior Maria Schroeder has verbally committed to play Division I softball for the Braves, who compete in the Missouri Valley Conference.

  • Webb makes sure Vernon Hills’ run continues downstate Feb 25, 2013 11:17 PM
    With her trusty point-guard hands, Lauren Webb cradled not a souvenir string of basketball net, nor the supersectional plaque, nor the game ball, which she so richly deserved. Rather, the Vernon Hills junior squeezed the Charmin. Well, a roll of some brand of toilet paper, anyway. She wasn’t about to cry, however. Nor was the player, poised and peppy, about to devilishly head off to TP someone’s house. “My nose is always running, since freshman year,” Webb said of why she stashes a roll of toilet paper on the bench. “It’s easier than a tissue box.” Vernon Hills’ season-long roll continued Monday night with a 39-31 win over pesky-younger-smaller Burlington Central in the Class 3A Hoffman Estates supersectional, earning the 30-2 Cougars a berth downstate for the second year in a row.

  • Fortune smiles on true Patriots Elzinga, Moffat Feb 20, 2013 11:21 PM
    Last week, Stevenson's Alex Elzinga announced that she's Army-bound. She accepted an appointment to West Point in New York, where she will suit up for the United States Military Academy. Her teammate, Kari Moffat, has accepted a scholarship offer from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. That's right - two Patriots bound for the Patriot League.

  • ISU thinks Grant’s Lucas is just wonderful Feb 5, 2013 8:52 PM

  • By design, Bellecomo will direct the action at Vernon Hills Jan 29, 2013 9:50 PM
    Those football plays that li'l Bill Bellecomo used to carve in his yard are long gone. They left an indelible mark, however. "My old man used to catch me in the back yard drawing them up in the dirt," Bellecomo, Ray Bellecomo's boy, said with a laugh. Not that Bellecomo will draw up a play from his boyhood days when he directs Vernon Hills' football team in the fall. But suffice it to say, he will draw on experience, from his days as a kid, to his days as a football player at Willowbrook High, to his years as an assistant coach studying under three highly successful high school head coaches.

  • Warren’s Sowa will be chillin’ at Drake Jan 17, 2013 10:49 PM

  • Driven to succeed, Behan finds a college destination Dec 20, 2012 11:08 PM
    All of 15 years old for another month, Carmel Catholic sophomore Jenny Behan cannot legally drive a car yet. “Well,” she said with a laugh, “I’m driving. But, yeah, I haven’t gotten my license yet. I can drive a car — but not by myself.” She needs no paper to drive base runners in. Two years from now, she’ll have documentation. That’s when Behan plans to sign a national letter of intent with James Madison University to play softball. Talk about a trip. She won’t graduate from high school for two-and-a-half years, but she’s already decided on her college destination.

  • Physical challenges don't keep down Carmel wrestler Dec 20, 2012 12:04 PM
    On bright gold and brown mats in Carmel Catholic's second-floor wrestling room, Cristian Migliarese walks the walk. He crawls, actually. The diminutive senior with the torso shaped like a “V,” which may as well stand for victory, is too modest to talk the talk. And, please, don't pity him because he uses crutches to traverse wherever he roams.

  • Vernon Hills’ Christie, unconventionally, extends his lacrosse career Dec 13, 2012 9:39 PM

  • Mundelein’s still counting on Ackley this season Dec 4, 2012 10:02 PM
    Jim Ackley started as Mundelein's sophomore scorekeeper in 1961, the year the high school opened. He took over as the varsity scorekeeper the following season, and the former eighth-grade basketball coach at Carl Sandburg Junior High has been "keeping the book" ever since. Recent health challenges aside, Ackley intends to score the rest of the season for Mundelein before letting someone else take his seat at the scoring table.

  • Bauer, Lake Zurich suffer frustrating finish Nov 17, 2012 9:15 PM
    His Lake Zurich football team trailed by 6 points late, and a tie wasn't sitting well with senior Jerry Bauer. Specifically, a darn knot was not making a comeback easy. As the big Bear tried hustling to his defensive position following a Lake Zurich timeout with 1:39 left in Saturday's Class 7A state semifinal between Lake Zurich and host Glenbard West at Glenbard South, he was stymied by his left football shoe that had come off.

  • Mundelein duo has a baseball future they can sink their teeth into Nov 16, 2012 11:05 PM
    Mundelein's Mitchell Schulewitz and Will Farmer are looking forward to futures in baseball they can sink their teeth into.

  • Vernon Hills' Bennett-Swanson breaks new ground Nov 15, 2012 3:08 PM
    Meri Bennett-Swanson might have started a run on DePaul University T-shirts that one day when she decided to buy a bunch for her BFFs. She might have started another run Wednesday, when the lefty, who can sink running hooks, signed her name on a national letter of intent with DePaul. In a dozen seasons of varsity girls basketball at Vernon Hills, the Cougars had never boasted a Division I player until their 6-foot-2 senior made her commitment to the Blue Devils official in front of family, friends coaches and other staff members in the high school library.

    Stephanie Wonders, who graduated from Lake Zurich in May, didn't exactly go the conventional route in earning a roster spot on a Division I softball team. Yet, there she was last month, taking advantage of a start at shortstop in a practice game for Northern Illinois University against Illinois Springfield and going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI.

  • Mundelein learns valuable lessons in winning Oct 20, 2012 10:26 PM
    On Thursday night, a night before its season-ending 42-7 loss to Lake Forest, Mundelein's entire football team, clad in game jerseys, found itself in ornate Bourke Hall in Building 4 of the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center in North Chicago. At evening's end, before the Mustangs hopped back on their mini buses and went home, a gentleman generously gave away as a raffle prize his cherished and prestigious military pin, which he received in 1967.Other Mustangs won military patches, some small, some large. You can bet the players will cherish them as much as any "M" they might have sewn on their letterman's jacket.
