  • Deerfield hangs on against Warren Mar 5, 2015 1:59 PM
    All season long, Warren’s boys basketball team was in games until the end. That was the scenario again Wednesday night, as the Blue Devils tried to rally from a 9-point deficit in the final quarter. But No. 6 Deerfield held on for a 34-30 in the Class 4A Notre Dame regional semifinal in Niles. Deerfield (18-11) will take on No. 4 Notre Dame (25-4) for the regional championship at 7 p.m. Friday. Jake Falish led No. 12 Warren (15-15) with 12 points, dropping in four 3-pointers. Maurice Chambers added 8 points. “I love this team and they competed so hard to win,” Warren coach Ryan Webber said. “We worked our butts off and just fell short.” The Blue Devils trailed 33-24 with 5:40 remaining in the game. Chambers and Falish each hit a 3 to cut the Deerfield lead to 33-30 at the three-minute mark. Warren had an great shot to tie the game with a minute left but saw a three-point attempt go in and out of the basket. “I don’t know how that ball didn’t go in,” Webber said. “It found a way to come out. That’s the way it goes sometimes.” Joey Lane made a free throw with 11 seconds left to seal the game for Deerfield. Nick Zwart led the Warriors with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Vernon Hills 91, CICS/Northtown 30: At Ridgewood, Bo Manso scored 17 points and Lem Turner added a season-high 16, as the top-seeded Cougars cruised in their Class 3A regional opener. Vernon Hills (26-4) also received 13 points from Robby Nardini, 11 from Matt Weaver and 9 from Jacob Helfand. Manso, Nardini and Helfand each sank three 3-pointers. The Cougars will play No. 9 Antioch in Friday’s 7 p.m. regional final. Antioch 60, Ridgewood 55: At Ridgewood, Kyle Gofron scored 12 points, as the ninth-seeded Sequoits ousted the host/No. 8 seed. Antioch received 10 points apiece from Danny Brito and Matt Powers. The Sequoits will play No. 1 Vernon Hills for the regional title at 7 p.m. Friday. Palatine 74, Grayslake Central 60: At Cary-Grove, the 14th-seeded Rams dropped their Class 4A regional semifinal. Grayslake Central finishes its season at 14-14. Hersey 66, Cary-Grove 57: Hersey sophomore guard Joe Coffaro looks like an eighth grader toiling in a grammar school tournament. Coffaro doesn’t play like a grade-schooler. Connecting on six 3-pointers, the sophomore scored a game-high 26 points to propel the sixth-seeded Huskies to a 66-57 win over 11th-seeded Cary-Grove in semifinal action of the Class 4A Cary-Grove regional Wednesday night. Hersey will play Palatine for the regional title Friday at 7 p.m. The Pirates advanced with a 74-60 win over Grayslake Central. “He (Coffaro) was certainly the difference in the game,” said Cary-Grove coach Ralph Schuetzle. “We have seen him seven or eight times this season, and he probably averaged one or two 3s in those games.” Coffaro, who was 6 of 9 from beyond the arc, also made 6 of 8 from the free throw line. “Joe has been a consistent player for us all season,” said Hersey coach Steve Messer. “They were clogging up the lane so we did a good job inside-out, and our shooters had open looks. Joe was outstanding.” Coffaro gave his teammates credit. “They got me the ball in good position to shoot,” said Coffaro. “I shot with a lot of confidence tonight.” The Huskies (18-9) were able to finally get some breathing space from the pesky Trojans (16-12) in the fourth quarter. Holding a slim 43-41 lead after 3 quarters, Hersey started the fourth quarter on a 6-0 run. Zak Cooper, Max Heeren and Josh Mailloux each had baskets as Hersey led 49-41 with 6:18 left. The Trojans refused to quit and got to within 54-51 on a 15-footer by Jason Gregoire with 3:09 remaining. The Trojans couldn’t get any closer. The Huskies made 9 of 12 from the free throw line in the last 1:45 to seal the win. Coffaro was 4-for-6 from the foul line while Cooper was 3 of 4 and Payton Haas made both his shots from the line for Hersey, which made 11 of 20 from 3-point range. Haas backed Coffaro with 18 points, including 3 treys, and Cooper scored 13. Gregoire, who didn’t play because of an ankle injury in Monday’s win against Round Lake, ended an illustrious career with 20 points.— Dave Hess

  • McCameron’s play led the way for Antioch Mar 2, 2015 10:33 PM
    As Montini’s basketball girls players talked to reporters in a room outside Hoffman Estates’ gym following their 30th win, the trio that led Antioch to the same victory total waited patiently in the hallway. Carly McCameron, Amy Reiser and Ashley Reiser looked at no one in particular, not knowing what to do after their 61-44 loss in the Class 3A supersectional Monday night. “We’re not used to this,” Sequoits coach Tim Borries said with a grin. If the Reisers and their returning teammates improve as much as McCameron did the last two years, rest assured, they will become experts in the postseason, postgame routine with the media.

  • Antioch seizes, and celebrates, the moment Feb 26, 2015 10:59 PM
    It was sensory overload Thursday night in the gym at Antioch. There were so many compelling visuals, and so many wonderful sounds there in the aftermath of the Class 3A girls sectional championship basketball game that it was almost difficult to know what to focus on next. Moments after the clock ran out on Antioch’s 58-43 victory over North Chicago, the first sectional title in program history for the Sequoits, seniors Carly McCameron and Shannon Zogran sprinted across the court to the jam-packed student section. They hugged their classmates, slapped high-fives with them, hooted and hollered with them, essentially thanking them for being the best (and loudest) cheering section a team could ever hope for. The Sequoits (30-3) are now hoping those same fans will follow them to Hoffman Estates High School for their supersectional matchup at 6 p.m. Monday against Montini.

  • Big breakthrough for Vernon Hills Feb 21, 2015 10:19 PM
    From hugs to heartbreak, the gamut of emotions were on their usual display Saturday afternoon in the Vernon Hills boys swimming sectional meet. As far as the hugs, there were plenty to go around, especially after Vernon Hills’ junior Brian Rabinowitz had just finished second in the 100-yard backstroke and qualified for next weekend’s state meet at New Trier. “I just missed in the previous three events today, but this definitely makes up for it,” said Rabinowitz, who swam a 53.50. “It feels great to finally end the drought. I was a little worried coming in, but I just trusted my training. I’d love to get a 53 or lower (at state).” The drought Rabinowitz mentioned refers to a four-year absence since Vernon Hills has had a state qualifier in boys swimming.

  • Healthy showing from Sage, Lakes Feb 20, 2015 11:18 PM
    There’s a sneaking suspicion that Ethan Sage is feeling a little better than was he leading on. Sidelined with the flu, Sage missed Wednesday’s game at Vernon Hills, a game in which the Eagles lost. Two days later, the nose was still a little stopped up, but the senior guard quickly downplayed it. “Feeling a little better, especially now,” said Sage, who poured in a game-high 12 points in helping lead the Eagles past visiting Antioch 55-33 in North Suburban Prairie boys basketball action on Friday night.

  • 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.

  • 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.
