Watch this feature to see some of the top moments in high school sports.

  • Huntley, McHenry graciously share county crown Apr 20, 2013 11:15 PM
    Huntley and McHenry were well suited to split the 2013 McHenry County Boys Track and Field Meet title in Cary Saturday. “It’s great that we tied,” Huntley relay anchor Mike Dollar said. “We both competed really hard. I have a lot of buddies on McHenry and I have since middle school.” Once the meet concluded athletes from both programs posed together with the trophy. Even the chummy coaches seemed satisfied with the split decision of a meet delayed two days by bad weather, though both expressed some surprise at the outcome.

  • Cary-Grove girls make it 5 straight county titles Apr 20, 2013 10:21 PM
    Cary-Grove’s drive for five didn’t come easy. The Trojans edged Huntley by 7 points to win their fifth consecutive McHenry County Girls Track and Field Meet on a crisp Saturday in Cary, and they did so by navigating potholes. Sophomore Morgan Schulz tweaked an ankle in warm-ups and had to pull out of the 800-meter relay, which finished second only to Huntley. The Trojans relinquished points in the day’s second race when the 400-meter relay team dropped the baton and finished sixth.

  • Dundee-Crown pulls out win over Crystal Lake C. Apr 6, 2013 6:39 PM
    When the time came to make clutch plays, whether down or trying to preserve the lead, Dundee-Crown's baseball team never squandered an opportunity. And it wasn't just in situations at the plate, the Chargers did so with defensive muster and heads-up base running as well. The latter accounted for the winning run as Ryan Suwanski, who led off the bottom of the seventh in a tied ballgame with a single, advanced on 2 wild pitches by Crystal Lake Central's Jacob Roley, the last skipping past Central's catcher as Suwanski advanced from third for an 11-10 victory over the Tigers in Fox Valley Conference action during a wind-tunneled Saturday morning in Carpentersville.

  • Huntley pounds out 20 hits in 16-0 win Apr 5, 2013 8:52 PM
    With the temperature hovering around 45 degrees, it didn't seem like a day hitters would thrive. The Huntley hitters certainly didn't mind the chilly conditions. Pounding out 20 hits with 6 extra base hits, the Red Raiders were able to pummel Crystal Lake Central 16-0 in a 5-inning Fox Valley Conference crossover softball game in Crystal Lake Friday afternoon. "I was really proud of how many quality at bats we had today," said Huntley coach Mark Petryniec. "Our approach was excellent and our pitch selection was excellent. We worked the count and swung at good pitches. It was good to see us swing the bats so well against quality pitching like Central has."

  • Student accused of putting camera in Crystal Lake locker room Mar 7, 2013 8:43 PM
    Crystal Lake police Thursday charged a 17-year-old Crystal Lake Central High School student with unauthorized use of a video recording device in a boys' locker room at the school.

  • Boylan knocks out Crystal Lake Central Mar 7, 2013 11:43 PM
    Last Friday in Crystal Lake Central’s Class 4A regional championship win over Jacobs, Golden Eagles boys basketball coach Jim Hinkle simply did not have a game plan for Central’s Jake VanScoyoc, who just kind of slipped through the cracks as he scored all of his 13 points in the first half during the win. “Who the heck is this Vasquez guy?” Hinkle exclaimed. “We didn’t even talk about him in practice.” During Thursday night’s Class 4A sectional semifinal against Rockford Boylan, anScoyoc was back at it again as the guard hit his first 5 shots and went for 11 points in the first quarter, providing Central quite a spark as the Tigers broke out to a 15-point lead on the Titans in the game’s first 8 minutes. VanScoyoc finished with a game-high 18 points for CL Central, but that 15-point lead didn’t last very long as the Tigers couldn’t finish like they started. Central managed 15 points between the first and fourth quarters thanks to Boylan’s defense, which stepped up immensely after Central shot 8 of 14 from the field in the first quarter and CLC had no answer for guard Demarcus Vines, who sliced his way through the lane over and over again for 15 points in a 60-49 win over the Tigers, to conclude Central’s season at 27-4.

  • Winter storm postpones boys playoff basketball games Mar 5, 2013 12:22 PM

  • Carter just wants Larkin to be itself Mar 4, 2013 8:58 PM
    Seniors will be scarce when Larkin faces Rockford Jefferson in a Class 4A DeKalb boys basketball sectional semifinal Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Of the 10 players leading Larkin (23-5) in minutes played, four are seniors and only two — all UEC River guards Quantice Hunter and Quentin Ruff — are starters. Coach Deryn Carter regularly starts three juniors: all-UEC River guard Kendale McCullum and forwards Drew Jones (6-foot-6) and Brayden Royse (6-5).

  • Crystal Lake Central turns away Jacobs Mar 1, 2013 11:08 PM
    The Jacobs boys basketball team made its run early in the fourth quarter Friday night. The Golden Eagles just didn’t have enough to get over the top and past Crystal Lake Central. Jacobs got within 55-50 with 4:28 remaining but failed to score over the next three minutes as the Tigers went on to a 65-58 victory in the Class 4A Jacobs regional final.

  • Jacobs hopes to give Hinkle another win Feb 28, 2013 11:12 PM
    If the Class 4A DeKalb sectional has a team of destiny, its name is Jacobs. The Golden Eagles entered regional play on their home floor this week determined to send retiring, 71-year old coach Jim Hinkle off on a high note. Following Monday’s 43-25 win over Prairie Ridge in the regional play-in game, fortune smiled upon Jacobs, which gained an extra day of rest prior to a semifinal clash against rival Dundee-Crown, thanks to Tuesday’s snowstorm. Better rested, No. 3 Jacobs (18-14) upset No. 2 Dundee-Crown (19-6) by 5 points to gain a berth in today’s regional title game against top seed Crystal Lake Central (25-3) at 7:30 p.m.

  • Crystal Lake C. does in Crystal Lake S. in 2nd half Feb 27, 2013 10:22 PM
    Trailing top-seeded Crystal Lake Central 24-21 at halftime fifth-seeded Crystal Lake South’s bid for an upset seemed a possibility. Central extinguished any of those hopes in the third quarter. The top seeded Tigers outscored the Gators 25-6 in the third quarter and cruised to a 69-49 win in semifinal action of the Class 4A Jacobs boys basketball regional Wednesday night. Central will play No. 3 seed Jacobs for the title Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Golden Eagles knocked off second-seeded Dundee-Crown 50-45 in Wednesday’s second semifinal. Friday’s winner advances to next week’s DeKalb sectional to play the winner of the Hononegah regional.

  • Crystal Lake Central dominates Huntley Feb 22, 2013 11:41 PM
    The notion that Huntley boys basketball coach Marty Manning made after the Red Raiders' 54-37 loss to Crystal Lake Central in the "unofficial" Fox Valley Conference championship game Friday night may be hard to disagree with. But Red Raiders' senior guard Bryce Only, playing in his last game at Huntley, took it further. On a night where CL Central never switched from a tight man-to-man defense and held the Red Raiders (17-8) to a 29.1 percent clip on 14 of 48 shooting while lighting up Huntley with a 54 percent clip on 42 shots, Only, who scored 9 points, said it bluntly.

  • Cary-Grove rolls over Crystal Lake Central Feb 13, 2013 9:41 PM
    Crystal Lake Central coach Paul Lichtenheld simply couldn’t devise a defense to stop Cary-Grove senior Olivia Jakubicek. Jakubicek’s 19 points and 13 rebounds were enough to produce a 47-24 win for the top-seeded Trojans over No. 5 seed Crystal Lake Central in semifinal action of the Class 4A Crystal Lake South girls basketball regional Wednesday night.

  • Crystal Lake Central upends Hampshire Feb 1, 2013 10:05 PM
    It’s fair to say the Hampshire boys basketball team has seen enough of Brad Knoeppel for awhile. The Crystal Lake Central senior scored 24 points and seemed to hit every critical bucket as the Tigers downed the Whip-Purs, 66-56, in a Fox Valley Conference Fox Division showdown in Hampshire Friday night.

  • Hope is in the air as cheer squads head downstate Feb 1, 2013 5:39 AM

  • Cullen still unbeaten; Cary-Grove 2nd in FVC Jan 26, 2013 9:12 PM
    It was clear going into Saturday's Fox Valley Conference finals that Crystal Lake Central's five-year reign as the league wrestling champion was over. The question was, would Cary-Grove's navy and white or McHenry's black and orange be the new colors of FVC wrestling royalty. McHenry's lead wasn't safe up only 10 points after Friday's prelims but sending 13 of 14 into the semifinals to Cary-Grove's 10 didn't seem to make the Warriors nervous. The Trojans closed in early with first place wins in 2 of the first 3 matches and watched three wrestlers earn titles, but McHenry grew stronger in the heavier classes and garnered 3 first-place winners, 3 second-place winners and 4 third-place medals to grab the overall championship over Cary-Grove, 261.50-210.
