  • St. Charles North ready for an encore Mar 12, 2015 1:59 PM
    St. Charles North boys water polo coach Christopher Cloy is not one to dwell on the past. While it is true that the North Stars enjoyed one of their best seasons in school history a year ago, Cloy eagerly anticipates the 2015 campaign.

  • Fruendt’s freshman year filled with more ups than downs Mar 9, 2015 7:53 PM
    During her illustrious 4-year varsity high school basketball career, Liza Fruendt rewrote the record book at Batavia. She finished with a school-record 1,921 career points. She poured in a career-high 51 points during the Bulldogs’ memorable 75-68 road win over neighboring rival Geneva last season. She connected on a mind-numbing 185 3-point baskets in her final 2 seasons and helped the Bulldogs capture their first regional title in 24 years as a senior. Since graduating last May, Fruendt has taken her talents southwest to Springfield, Missouri, where she is nearing the end of her freshman season at Missouri State.

    Time for some random thoughts ...

  • St. Charles inducts class filled with champions Jan 23, 2015 10:41 AM
    There is no disputing the worthiness of the quartet recently selected to join the St. Charles (East) High School Athletic Hall of Fame. The Jodie Harrison Lifetime Achievement Award recipients for 2015 are David Fix, Ryan Lindgren, Anne Poulin and the late Stryker Reed. They’ll be honored prior to Saturday’s 6 p.m. varsity basketball game between St. Charles East and West Chicago.

    Nearing the unofficial halfway point of the high school basketball campaign, St. Charles East is currently in the middle of what could be its best season since the 2000-2001 squad captured the school’s fourth sectional title.

  • It’s that time again — predictions sure to go wrong Jan 8, 2015 2:57 PM
    It is that time. Good, bad or just so-so, it is time to write my annual predictions column for 2015.

  • Looking back at a year filled with champions Jan 3, 2015 4:33 PM
    While we are a few days into the New Year, I’d like to take one last look at a memorable 2014 for area high school athletics.

  • Geneva’s Santacaterina will cap NIU career at Boca Raton Bowl Dec 18, 2014 3:48 PM
    It seems only fitting that a guy nicknamed “Santa” be playing a big game in December.

  • Rivalry night memorable for all involved — especially Saints, Vikings Dec 8, 2014 6:04 PM
    I like to call it “March Madness” in December. Last weekend was rivalry weekend for 4 local boys and girls basketball teams, as Batavia played host to neighboring Geneva while St. Charles North visited cross-town foe St. Charles East on Saturday.

  • Plenty of pleasant surprises in opening week Dec 1, 2014 10:35 PM
    We are off and running...The high school boys basketball season kicked off last week and provided plenty of entertainment for local fans. An exciting opening should equal an interesting season ahead. Here are some random thoughts:

  • Lyon overcomes obstacles in record-setting Marquette career Nov 18, 2014 7:09 PM
    Like many college freshmen, Charlie Lyon had to make his share of adjustments upon his arrival at Marquette University in 2010. One week before graduating from St. Charles East High School, Lyon suffered a serious knee injury while playing goalkeeper in a club game.

  • Woods says this could be his best St. Charles East team yet Nov 10, 2014 10:29 PM
    Basketball is much more than just a game for Patrick Woods. That is one of the reasons why Woods couldn’t wait for Monday’s first official day of high school basketball practice at St. Charles East.

  • It’s reloading, not rebuilding, for Geneva Nov 3, 2014 10:05 PM
    While I confess I don’t know what kind of music Sarah Meadows prefers, I doubt the Boomtown Rats can be found anywhere on her iPod. Unlike former Boomtown Rats lead singer Bob Geldof, Meadows actually likes some Mondays. This past Monday was definitely one of them.

  • Geneva’s Einck ready to take final swings at state Oct 22, 2014 9:47 AM
    It can get lonely sometimes when you play in singles competition on a high school tennis team. There is no partner nearby to help erase the memories of a poorly struck shot or to offer a congratulatory high five after hitting a baseline winner. Geneva’s Kirby Einck has played at the No. 1 singles position throughout her high school career. However, she has never really been alone on the court.
