Even more impressive the Corsairs did it without Drake recruit Gracie Schofield, an outside hitter who had sprained her ankle the night before.

  • Top-seeded Stevenson gears up for playoffs Oct 25, 2014 11:39 PM
    There have been undefeated football seasons at Stevenson in the past. There have also been too many conference titles to count and a 26-year consecutive playoff streak that is among the best in the state. But one item is missing from Stevenson’s resume, and it’s a pretty big one at that: a state championship. With one of their best teams in program history, the Patriots are hoping to finally add that elusive piece of hardware to their trophy case, and on Saturday night they learned the path they’ll have to take to do so. The IHSA announced the 256 teams across eight classes that make up its state playoff field. At 9-0, Stevenson was the top-ranked team in Class 8A and will face No. 16 Lyons (5-4) in Lincolnshire.

  • Girls tennis: Minor, Stevenson tandem win state titles Oct 25, 2014 11:29 PM
    The Minor hand-me-downs include good genes. And a headband. “I found it at home. She just left it,” Carmel Catholic senior Brienne Minor said of a headband worn by her older sister Jasmine, who won the state singles championship for Carmel in 2010. “I just figured if she won with it, then I could win state too.” The Minors have a tradition of great tennis players in their family, and that was evident again Saturday, as Minor captured the state title over Isabella Lorenzini of Hinsdale Central. Minor prevailed in a grueling, two-and-a-half-hour match — 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 — at Buffalo Grove. Last year’s single champion, Naperville Central’s Tiffany Chen, settled for third place, while Stevenson took home the second-place trophy for the first time since 1996. Stevenson’s Kate Harvey and Vinaya Rao captured the doubles title, while teammates Zoe Taylor and Kaylin Dong finished fifth.
