  • 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.

     
  • Plenty of intrigue surrounds opening round of football playoffs Oct 29, 2014 8:58 PM
    Whether you’re the 256th — and last team — to qualify for postseason play (Aurora Christian) or the defending Class 6A state champions (Batavia), it really doesn’t matter any longer. What matters most is that your team is still playing.

     
  • 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.

     
  • 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.

     
  • St. Charles North grad Mikes finding end zone often Oct 6, 2014 8:04 PM
    Josh Mikes came ready to play this season. Mikes, a 2011 graduate of St. Charles North, enjoyed a record-breaking September afternoon in Winona State University’s opening game against Northern State (S.D.).

     
  • Halfway home, breaking down playoff possibilities Sep 30, 2014 9:42 AM
    It seems like I say this every year about this time — and here I go again. I can’t believe how fast time is flying. Last weekend (at halftime to be precise) marked the official halfway point of the high school football regular season.

     
  • Even with 4-0 record, Geneva sees room for improvement Sep 23, 2014 9:53 AM
    I have to admit that I have always liked weather. When I was younger, I wanted to be a meteorologist — that is, until I found out how many math and science courses I would have to take in order to become one.

     
  • Montini transfer Jakaitis gives experienced St. Charles North boost Oct 3, 2014 3:02 PM
    St. Charles North girls basketball coach Sean Masoncup knows exactly when the first official preseason practice begins. “November 3rd,” said Masoncup, who wasted little time answering my question. Not that he is looking forward to it or anything.

     
  • Batavia keeps its cool, gets back on track Sep 9, 2014 9:01 PM
    Some high school football teams would have panicked after losing their season-opening game on the final play — an untimed play at that. Batavia is not of one of them.

     
  • No shortage of excitement during football’s opening week Sep 3, 2014 10:45 PM
    Labor Day weekend included a little bit of everything for everybody.

     
  • Cougars enjoying remarkable turnaround Aug 25, 2014 7:17 PM
    Before I begin looking ahead to the upcoming high school football season — which kicks off Friday night at a prep stadium near you — I want to take one last look back at the summer of 2014.

     
  • Looking back at another season filled with memorable moments Jun 13, 2014 9:00 AM
    This is it. This is my last column of the 2013-2014 school year. That might elicit a chorus of cheers from some readers but for me it means that another high school sports season has come and gone.

     
  • Former St. Charles prep stars selected in MLB Draft Jun 12, 2014 10:58 PM
    Being a left-handed pitcher can have its advantages. If you want proof, just ask St. Charles’ Wes Benjamin and Zach Hirsch, who were among the 1,215 picks selected during the 3-day Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft that concluded Saturday.

     
  • Batavia riding high heading into regionals May 27, 2014 9:54 AM
    To be the best you have to beat the best. The phrase certainly works at this time of year.

     
  • Hirsch finishing college career with a bang May 5, 2014 10:33 PM
    Zach Hirsch has been through just about everything during his collegiate baseball career at the University of Nebraska.
