  • St. Charles East starts life without Stephens Nov 12, 2013 7:23 PM
    It's the time of year where expectations are always lofty in high school gymnasiums across the state of Illinois. I'm not sure if Monday afternoon's weather was a cruel practical joke or not but it's also the time of year where snow can begin to cover the ground. Monday marked the first official day of high school boys basketball practice.

  • St. Charles North starts new era under Masoncup Nov 4, 2013 10:23 PM
    Sean Masoncup has been waiting for this week to come for a long time. On Monday afternoon, he prepared to put his team through a rigorous practice session during the first official day of high school girls basketball practice at St. Charles North.

  • Playoff primer: Memorable month awaits Oct 28, 2013 11:41 PM
    The Illinois High School Association state football playoffs are all about Saturday night pizza parties as teams gather to watch the pairings show live on television. They’re about coaches exchanging game films, players studying opponents’ tendencies, schools holding pregame pep rallies, and families searching throughout their homes for winter apparel as fall temperatures begin to plummet. Welcome to the postseason where memories have already been made — and many more yet to be made.

  • St. Charles East grad Russell holds important job for Illini Oct 21, 2013 9:16 PM
    A popular slogan used by a major insurance company is, “The Good Hands People.” At the University of Illinois, Tim Russell is definitely one of the “good hands people” these days for the Fighting Illini football team. Russell, a 2009 graduate of St. Charles East High School, has served as the primary holder on field goal tries and extra-point attempts for the past 3 seasons at Illinois.

  • 2013 shaping up to be record-setting season Oct 15, 2013 4:45 PM
    As Illinois high school football teams head into the final 2 weeks of the regular season, some playoff spots already have been clinched while others are still up for grabs.

  • Aurora Central Catholic’s Field of Dreams is on its way Oct 9, 2013 6:47 PM
    It’s an exciting time at Aurora Central Catholic. Over the past few years, Chargers’ athletic teams have made some huge strides on the playing field. In 2011, St. Charles resident Jim Parker coached ACC’s boys’ golf team to the Class 1A regional championship. The Chargers’ boys’ cross country team qualified for the Class 2A state meet a year ago, while coach Brian Casey directed the football team to its first playoff berth since 1997 last season — and has the squad just 1 win away from being postseason eligible again this season.

  • Ratay returning to Geneva with new colors Oct 1, 2013 7:13 PM
    Shaun Ratay figures to feel right at home when he steps foot onto Geneva’s Burgess Field Friday night. Well, sort of. Ratay was a 2-year starting quarterback who threw 28 touchdown passes and helped lead the Vikings’ football team to a Class 6A state semifinal berth during his senior year in 2006. His former head coach, Rob Wicinski, continues to patrol the sideline at the helm for Geneva.

  • Three unbeatens remain as season races to halfway point Sep 23, 2013 9:35 PM
    Think about this for a moment. The official halfway point of the high school football regular season will be reached when the teams head for the locker room at halftime of their respective games this weekend. While the season often seems to go by like a blur, there’s still plenty of football remaining before I begin turning my attention to the basketball court.

  • Glasgow brothers making Marmion proud Sep 18, 2013 5:04 PM
    Four years ago, Graham Glasgow and his younger brother Ryan were mainstays as offensive and defensive linemen for Marmion’s football team. A year ago, the Glasgow brothers were reunited at the University of Michigan with Graham appearing in 5 games as a reserve offensive lineman and on special teams for the Wolverines while Ryan spent his freshman season as a redshirt member of the scout team. Three weeks ago, they donned the famous maize and blue colored winged helmets and emerged from the tunnel at Michigan Stadium as true collegiate teammates for the first time, helping lead the Wolverines to a season-opening 59-9 victory over Central Michigan.

  • St. Charles East finds help from the basketball court Sep 11, 2013 8:27 PM
    Two weeks into the high school football season, it might be a little early to jump to conclusions while analyzing our area teams. However, I firmly believe some patterns have been established — and I think the arrow is pointing upward. Here are some things that have caught my eye:

  • An opening weekend no coach will soon forget Sep 5, 2013 4:51 PM
    So, this is going to be what the 2013 high school football season is all about? An appropriate slogan for opening weekend could have been “Hurry Up and Wait” as most area teams were forced to wait an extra day to kick off their seasons due to a series of thunderstorms that swept through the western suburbs last Friday night.

  • Playing 20 questions to start the season Aug 27, 2013 12:22 PM
    With the opening kickoff of the 2013 high school football season just a few days away, I think this is a good time to play a little game to help local fans prepare for the upcoming gridiron campaign. Here are 20 questions on my mind:

  • So long summer, hello fall Aug 27, 2013 11:58 AM
    It may be opening week for area high school, middle school and elementary school students and staff but there’s still a little time left to enjoy summerlike temperatures before thoughts of Halloween come creeping upon us.

  • Looking back at the best of the best Jun 6, 2013 3:35 PM
    A few months ago, it seemed like the school year would never end. Now here we are fast approaching the second weekend of June, looking at the 2012-2013 school year from the rearview mirror. That is, with the exception of St. Charles East’s baseball and softball teams, who are very much alive and well heading into today’s Class 4A state semifinals — both just 2 victories away from earning state championships.

  • Batavia, St. Charles East looking for more May 20, 2013 8:04 PM
    Welcome to the first week of the Class 4A baseball postseason.

  • Youthful St. Charles North searching for consistency May 13, 2013 9:46 PM
    Perhaps St. Charles North baseball coach Todd Genke should have figured this would be a challenging season when the team's annual trip to downstate Marion was shortened due to a late-March snowstorm. Whatever the case, it definitely has not been business as usual for the North Stars this season.

  • FieldTurf making East Side Complex a popular place Apr 30, 2013 8:32 PM
    There are a number of advantages in being a resident of St. Charles. Both of the city's high schools — St. Charles North (21st) and St. Charles East (39th) — were recently named to the "Top 50" annual list published by U.S. News & World Report that ranks each state's high schools. They were the only 2 Kane County high schools to make the list. Both high schools were also recognized as Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education.

  • Expected to be good, Batavia baseball, Saints softball better than advertised Apr 15, 2013 9:42 PM
    Prior to the start of the high school — I can't wait until it actually starts feeling like — spring season, two local teams were included among the annual preview stories. Nothing fancy, nothing new. Overlooked by some, Batavia's baseball team began its season last month with a game that wasn't even listed on its original schedule.

  • About time we’ve got baseball and softball to talk about Apr 1, 2013 8:41 PM
    In celebration of the opening week of the high school baseball/softball season, here are 9 things on my mind:

  • Cubs affiliation excites Cougars Mar 22, 2013 9:30 PM
    So much for Spring fever. It certainly hasn't felt like baseball weather these days. Bone-chilling temperatures have been the norm instead of the exception this month while shoveling snow has been much more commonplace than seeing local baseball or softball players swinging bats outdoors. At this point, I'd actually settle for a few 45-degree afternoons rather than the 30-degree temperatures that we've been experiencing lately across Chicagoland. But believe it or not, baseball season is just around the corner — I think. Weather permitting, of course. Nobody is looking forward to the first pitch of the 2013 season more than Kane County Cougars general manager Curtis Haug.
