  • Jacobs soars past Crystal Lake Central Mar 3, 2014 11:22 PM
    Jacobs boys basketball coach Jim Roberts believes reserve guard Cory Boeckh plays an important role off the bench for the Golden Eagles. And Jacobs, which struggles to score at times, was badly in need of Boeckh’s 3-point prowess early when it struggled to score in the first half of its 46-25 opening-round win over the sixth-seeded Tigers Monday night, the hosts of the Class 4A Crystal Lake Central regional.

  • Dundee-Crown gets a leg up on regional Feb 28, 2014 11:49 PM
    Location, location, location. Maybe it’s time to call Dundee-Crown coach Lance Huber “the realtor.” Maybe not.

But there was a distinctive advantage for Huber’s Chargers in Friday night’s Fox Valley Conference crossover at Crystal Lake Central, which the Chargers won 68-45 in Crystal Lake.

  • Einloth, Grayslake North tame Crystal Lake Central Feb 15, 2014 11:54 PM
    Stretched out on the bench, Aidan Einloth figured he was done for the night. The Grayslake North sophomore got to work early Saturday night and helped the Knights build up a cushy 23-point lead over visiting Crystal Lake Central through three quarters. Having scored 23 points of his own by that point, Einloth began the fourth quarter on the bench, ready to cheer on the reserves for the rest of the way. Good thing he didn’t get too comfortable, or remove his shoes. Grayslake North wound up rolling to a 60-40 victory over Crystal Lake Central, but Einloth and some of the other starters and key players had to jump back in when things got interesting with about four minutes remaining.

Cary-Grove was third a half point behind South with 163 points.

It was the conference opener for the Whip-Purs (3-5, 1-0).

The game was part of the sister schools’ Night of Hoops.

  • Larkin falls to Sycamore Nov 23, 2013 7:38 PM
    With only seven players in uniform, Larkin’s girls basketball team was a bit undermanned to begin with Saturday. The Royals then dug themselves a big first-half hole. They tried to dig their way out of it in the second half but came up short, falling 45-37 to Sycamore at the Central Thanksgiving Tournament in Burlington.

  • Burlington Central routs Crystal Lake Central Nov 22, 2013 10:20 PM
    Burlington Central girls basketball coach Mark Smith was quite happy to see the difference between his team’s first and second games of the season. A 43-point victory usually pleases coaches.

  • Crystal Lake South breezes to regional crown Oct 31, 2013 9:07 PM
    Crystal Lake South’s girls volleyball team had absolutely no interest in playing a third game. After winning the first game 25-14, the Gators trailed rival Crystal Lake Central 19-8 in the second game and a third game seemed inevitable. But, keyed by a 12-2 run, top-seeded South rallied to win the second game 25-23 and the Class 4A Dundee-Crown regional championship over second-seeded Crystal Lake Central Thursday night in Carpentersville.
