  • Benet graduate Powers still swinging with power Oct 29, 2014 8:31 PM
    The golf swing has a lot in common with the baseball swing. Drive with the legs, use the core to whip the hips through, throw the hands, eyes on the ball. It’s become a smooth transition for Benet graduate Connor Powers.

  • Like it or not, Glenbard South gets Riverside-Brookfield again Oct 29, 2014 8:59 PM

  • Yunker’s goal sends Batavia past Benet Oct 29, 2014 10:55 PM

  • Benet volleyball suffers first defeat Oct 18, 2014 7:08 PM
    While some schools may be intimidated stepping onto the volleyball court to take on Benet, Mother McAuley is not one of them. In the championship match of the Glenbard East Autumnfest tourney on Saturday, the Macs defeated the previously unbeaten Redwings 25-19, 25-20. The Macs (31-3), who knocked off Benet last year in the Class 4A finals, won their second straight Autumnfest crown behind the strong play of tourney MVP Kelsey Clark and outside hitter Ryann DeJarld, who had 15 kills in the finals on her way to all-tourney honors.

  • Boys soccer: St. Viator grabs East Suburban Catholic title Oct 17, 2014 8:40 PM
    Apparently, St. Viator’s boys soccer team was saving its best for last. On the final day of the regular season, and with everything at stake in the East Suburban Catholic Conference, the Lions thumped Benet 3-1 on Friday afternoon in Lisle to emerge as outright league champion for the first time since 2010. St. Viator (16-5-1, 8-1-0) denied Benet the draw it needed in order to win a second outright title in the last three years.

  • Joliet Catholic stops Benet Oct 17, 2014 11:34 PM
    There’s no secret when you play Joliet Catholic Academy: the Hilltoppers are going to run the ball and run the ball, then run it some more. The surprise when Benet traveled to Joliet on Friday night was how the Hilltoppers offense was triggered.

  • Tri-Cities volleyball teams prepare for stacked sectional Oct 15, 2014 10:11 AM
    Perhaps the Illinois High School Association knew exactly what it was doing when the decision came to shuffle a few girls volleyball sectional tournament alignments this season. Maybe the decision was just by chance — call it the luck of the draw. Whatever the case, the upcoming Class 4A Bartlett sectional field promises to be one of the most competitive in recent memory. I say it borders on almost being unfair.

    Nothing was decided during Saturday afternoon’s nonconference game between Benet and Naperville Central.
