  • Big breakthrough for Vernon Hills Feb 21, 2015 10:19 PM
    From hugs to heartbreak, the gamut of emotions were on their usual display Saturday afternoon in the Vernon Hills boys swimming sectional meet. As far as the hugs, there were plenty to go around, especially after Vernon Hills’ junior Brian Rabinowitz had just finished second in the 100-yard backstroke and qualified for next weekend’s state meet at New Trier. “I just missed in the previous three events today, but this definitely makes up for it,” said Rabinowitz, who swam a 53.50. “It feels great to finally end the drought. I was a little worried coming in, but I just trusted my training. I’d love to get a 53 or lower (at state).” The drought Rabinowitz mentioned refers to a four-year absence since Vernon Hills has had a state qualifier in boys swimming.

  • Libertyville’s Gunther guns it, reaches state final Feb 20, 2015 11:03 PM
    Joey Gunther was a smashing success Friday. The Libertyville senior advanced to the 160-pound state wrestling final after outlasting Trace Carello of Marmion Academy in a marathon semifinal in Champaign. The top-seeded Gunther won 3-2 when he was awarded the 1-point winner as Carello (20-4) was unable to break away from an unyielding hold. “It’s wasn’t at all pretty, but as I said after my quarterfinal this morning, it’s not about style points down here,” said Gunther (36-1). Assured of a state medal, Gunther next tried to become the fourth state champ in Libertyville history. He’ll meet Matthew Rundell (32-3) of Oak Park-River Forest in the title bout on Day 3 of the state tournament.

  • Callahan shoots Buffalo Grove past Stevenson Feb 20, 2015 11:37 PM
    As soon as Buffalo Grove’s girls basketball season ends, Maddy Callahan will have her long-awaited ACL surgery. “It’s just partially torn,” the 5-foot-8 senior guard, who wears a cumbersome brace on her left knee, said with a shrug. Callahan is in no hurry to stop playing ball, as evident by the 24 points, including six 3-pointers, that she poured in during fifth-seeded Buffalo Grove’s thrilling, 59-55 win over No. 4 Stevenson in the Class 4A Carmel Catholic regional final Friday night. The victory earned Buffalo Grove (21-10) a berth in Monday’s 7 p.m. Palatine sectional semifinal against fellow Mid-Suburban League member Fremd (24-4), which is the No. 1 seed.

  • Mundelein finding ways to enjoy the struggle Feb 19, 2015 9:55 PM
    Staying upbeat during a 2-25 season isn’t easy. So Mundelein coach Corey Knigge has gone out of his way to make sure his players are having some fun off the court. “We’ve had two rough seasons in a row,” said Knigge, referring to last year’s 2-28 campaign and the 0-11 mark in North Suburban Conference play this is part of this year’s two-win season. “We want the kids, especially our seniors, to have some good memories of this season.” On Wednesday, Knigge took his team down to Loyola University to a men’s game against Northern Iowa, which features former Mundelein standout Robert Knar. Last week, the Mustangs made their first trip to Loyola, to watch another former Mundelein star, Sean O’Brien, a sophomore at Southern Illinois.

  • Mundelein stays focused, prevails at Carmel Feb 16, 2015 10:42 PM
    Home-team fans tend to quiet down to a whisper when their own players are shooting free throws. They think that they’re doing the shooter a favor, helping with his or her concentration. Then, when the road team shoots free throws, the home fans go crazy and make as much noise as possible. They think they’re being a distraction. Well, the Mundelein girls basketball team turned this bit of conventional wisdom on its head on Monday night. In a raucous environment at Carmel in a Class 4A regional opener, the Mustangs weren’t distracted in the least by loud, screaming fans for the home team. It was like they barely noticed the noise as they calmly hit 13 of 16 fourth-quarter free throws to ice a 51-45 victory over Carmel.

As a junior, Williams helped coach Dann Giesey’s Carmel program to a 24-10-1 record last spring. The Corsairs finished third in the East Suburban Catholic Conference with an 11-5 mark.

  • Mundelein’s Kehr comes through, wins parallel bars Feb 9, 2015 11:14 PM
    McKenzie Kehr had a painful memory from a year ago, one that spoiled her chance at a spot in the state meet. The Mundelein senior wasn’t going to let history repeat in Monday night’s Mundelein girls gymnastics sectional. So, Kehr, as the final performer on the uneven parallel bars, chalked up the best routine of the meet, a 9.45 that qualified her to the state meet at Palatine on Feb. 20. “I really didn’t want a repeat of last year,” Kehr said. “I just gave it my all. I actually tore my fingernail off in the middle of it and kind of stopped. This time, I was luckier. I was just pumped up with the team and wanted to make it there (to state), with the team.” Kehr was the runner-up in the all-around at 37.325 in addition to taking second on vault (9.55) and fifth on beam (8.925). As a team, Mundelein will have to wait and see if it will quality to state with an at-large berth, as the Mustangs finished behind sectional champion Glenbrook South (142.625). Mundelein (141.325) was second and Carmel Catholic third (141.125).

  • Carmel can’t catch up to quick-starting St. Patrick Feb 6, 2015 11:06 PM
    In the week leading up to Friday night’s East Suburban Catholic Conference matchup with visiting St. Patrick, Carmel boys basketball coach Zack Ryan emphasized the importance of a good start. The Shamrocks, however, had a similar game plan. And during the long rush-hour bus ride, senior Nicolas Coleman and his Shamrocks teammates had plenty of time to think about it. “Last year we had trouble starting fast,” Coleman said. “It’s something we have really focused on this year — getting started fast.” St. Patrick did start fast, much to the dismay of Ryan and the Corsairs. The Shamrocks jumped on Carmel 19-4 in the first quarter and stayed in control the whole way in an impressive 67-42 win in Mundelein on Friday night.
