  • Burlington Central notches 33rd straight league win Jan 27, 2015 10:49 PM
    Johnsburg’s girls basketball team came into Burlington Central’s gym Tuesday night with upset on its mind. And why not? The Skyhawks were 8-1 in the Big Northern East and if they could pull off the unexpected it would likely mean tying for the division championship. For the better part of the first half Johnsburg kept pace with the Rockets before falling behind by 8 points at halftime. Then came the third quarter. The Rockets, ranked No. 10 in the AP Class 3A state poll this week, blasted out of the second-half gate with an apparent sense of urgency to let their visitors know they intend to win the BN-East outright for the third straight year. BC outscored the Skyhawks 28-4 in the third quarter, eventually cruising to a 55-24 win.

  • Freshmen making their mark in Fox Valley Jan 22, 2015 1:31 PM
    A varsity basketball coach’s decision to play freshmen has its pros and cons. Sometimes a coach’s hand is willfully forced by the sheer athleticism or size of an incoming freshman.
