  • Girls volleyball: Crystal Lake South disposes of Crystal Lake Central Oct 23, 2014 10:13 PM
    Crystal Lake Central cruised to the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division championship with a perfect 12-0 slate. Crystal Lake South and Cary-Grove shared the Valley title with identical 9-1 marks. So, when South-Central met Thursday in a Fox Valley Conference crossover tilt, a close, hard-fought match was anticipated. The host Gators made sure that didn’t happen. In a snappy 40 minutes, South disposed of intra-city rival Central 25-19, 25-21.

  • Jacobs Van Vlierbergen makes it a FVC trifecta Oct 18, 2014 8:43 PM
    Muddy, wet conditions. Didn’t matter. Annoying mist. Didn’t matter. You get the picture. Nothing was going to deter Jacobs senior standout Lauren Van Vlierbergen from capturing her third straight Fox Valley Conference individual championship. Van Vlierbergen, who finished fourth in Class 3A in 2013, posted a 3-mile time of 17:53.8 to finish first at Saturday’s Fox Valley Conference girls cross country championship at Hickory Nut Grove Park in Cary.

  • Crystal Lake Central ends Hampshire’s playoff hopes Oct 17, 2014 11:36 PM
    Offense, defense and special teams are the three phases of football and teams looking to make a run in the playoffs need all three to be at their best. Crystal Lake Central used all three as it secured a trip to the playoffs with a 65-20 win over Hampshire in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division play in Crystal Lake Friday night.

  • Jacobs nabs FVC girls tennis crown Oct 11, 2014 9:41 PM
    Patience is a virtue. Just ask Jacobs girls tennis coach Jon Betts. During Betts’ 10-year tenure as the Golden Eagles coach, Jacobs finished second in the Fox Valley Conference six times. Jacobs is no longer a bridesmaid. For the first time since 2003, the Golden Eagles are conference champs.

  • St. Edward’s Scully advances to sectional Oct 8, 2014 9:33 PM
    Ryann Scully will have a story to tell her kids and grandkids about one hole she played during the Class A Genoa-Kingston girls golf regional at The Oak Club Wednesday. What Scully can do, though, is tell a story in which she had an 18 — yes, an 18 — on a hole and still qualified for the sectional. “On the ninth hole I got into the sand by the green in two (shots),” Scully said, “and it was all downhill from there. It took me 12 shots to get out of that sand.”

  • Huntley claims 3rd FVC title in 4 years Oct 2, 2014 7:08 PM
    After finishing second to Jacobs in last year’s Fox Valley Conference boys golf tournament, Huntley coach Jim Rolando was looking for his team to climb that one step higher in this year’s meet. The Red Raiders got the job done. Led by a 73 from Jake Grabner and a 75 from Trent Craig, Huntley placed first with a score of 312 at Thursday’s FVC meet hosted by McHenry and held at Oak Grove Golf Course.

  • Second-half slump slows Grayslake North Oct 3, 2014 12:23 AM
    Grayslake North senior Titus Booker seemed to be well on his way to another record-setting rushing performance at halftime of Thursday night’s Fox Valley Conference Fox Division football game at Crystal Lake Central. The Indiana-bound Booker needed just 9 carries to pile up 263 yards in the first 24 minutes at Owen Metcalf Field. Four of his touches resulted in long sprints to the end zone as the Knights went to the locker room with a 4-point lead. But when they had to go back to the locker room with 8:25 left in the third quarter for lightning delays that totaled an hour and 12 minutes it was with a 3-point deficit. The Knights (3-3, 2-1) didn’t score again until there was 1:10 to play and Booker was limited to 22 second-half yards. CL Central (4-2, 2-2) held on for a 37-34 victory that ended at 11:10 p.m. before just a smattering of the big crowd that was originally in attendance.

  • Cary-Grove senior Luloff wins FVC crown Oct 1, 2014 7:12 PM
    Cary-Grove senior Larissa Luloff admitted she put a lot of pressure on herself to win Wednesday’s Fox Valley Conference girls golf tournament at Crystal Woods. “I really wanted to win individually,” Luloff said. “I put that pressure on myself and I probably shouldn’t have.” But Luloff beat the pressure, and the golf course, to shoot a 5-over par 77 and come away with the individual title that also led her Crystal Lake co-op team to the FVC team championship.

  • Crystal Lake Central upends Crystal Lake South Sep 20, 2014 12:31 AM
    You can call them party crashers all you want, but milestone wins are hard to come by for football teams and when you’re Crystal Lake Central repeatedly getting beat by your crosstown rival for the last 15 years, it was more than just OK if the Tigers wanted to party like it was 1999 after their 7-3 win over Crystal Lake South at Ken Bruhn Field Friday night in Crystal Lake.

  • Jacobs’ Van Vlierbergen claims county title Aug 30, 2014 9:25 PM
    Lauren Van Vlierbergen was tired of a being a runner-up. So the talented Jacobs senior did something about it. After finishing second the last 2 years, Van Vlierbergen easily claimed top honors at Saturday’s McHenry County girls cross country meet held at Crystal Lake’s Lippold Park Saturday.

  • CL Central finishes off Grant Aug 30, 2014 10:54 PM
    Crystal Lake Central 42, Grant 6: Down 14-6 with 10:14 left in the second quarter Friday night when their season opener was suspended due to lightning, the visiting Bulldogs had little go their way Saturday. The loss spoiled the Grant coaching debut of Vito Andriola. Ryan Williams scored 3 touchdowns for Crystal Lake Central.

  • Grant, CL Central postponed Aug 29, 2014 10:44 PM
    Mother Nature’s lightning display Friday night in Crystal Lake suspended the season opener between Grant and Crystal Lake Central. The contest is scheduled to resume Saturday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at Owen Metcalf Field.

  • FVC Valley will be a dogfight again Aug 25, 2014 11:50 PM
    Jacobs is determined to prove last year’s undefeated Fox Valley Conference Valley Division title was just the beginning of a long reign. Cary-Grove is out to claim its eighth FVC title in 11 seasons, thereby proving its 2013 second-place finish was an anomaly, not the new norm. While the head-to-head matchup between those teams in Algonquin in Week 7 will go a long way to deciding a champion, other hungry teams like deep Huntley, playoff-seasoned Dundee-Crown, reworked Crystal Lake South and improving McHenry won’t concede a thing to the Golden Eagles or Trojans.

  • Crystal Lake Special Olympian runs ‘like lightning’ Jun 12, 2014 11:16 AM
    After a three-year hiatus from Special Olympics, Brent Kampert’s comeback in the sport he loves — running — was “like lightning.” Kampert, 28, of Crystal Lake earned a spot in this month's Special Olympics 2014 USA Games with a record-setting performance in the 2013 Illinois Summer Games, running 100 meters in 11 seconds.

  • Jacobs moves on, will face Barrington next May 26, 2014 10:28 PM
    They waited — 93 minutes to be exact — but in the end, it had rained too much to make Jacobs’ softball field playable for the top of the seventh inning. Considering all the games the Golden Eagles had lost in the seventh inning this season, maybe there was some poetic justice to that. The Eagles registered a 3-1 victory Monday over Crystal Lake Central in the play in game of the Class 4A Cary-Grove regional.
