  • Huntley avenges last year with regional title Oct 31, 2013 8:54 PM
    After letting a late lead slip away, Huntley was determined not to let it happen again. The Red Raiders dominated DeKalb in Game 3 from start to finish, wrapping up a regional title with a 25-17, 24-26, 25-13 win. Emily Westermeyer led the way with 9 kills in the final of the Class 4A Jefferson regional Thursday night.

  • Huntley suffers tough loss to DeKalb Oct 26, 2013 8:01 PM
    The winds of fate were unkind to Huntley’s boys soccer team Saturday afternoon. It didn’t take long for DeKalb coach Brent McIntosh to determine which direction his team would head after winning the opening coin toss prior to the Class 3A regional championship clash. “When we won the toss, our plan was to definitely take the wind,” said McIntosh. “We felt like that might have been a little bit of a 12th man advantage for us. I felt like we wanted to make a statement in the opening half that it was going to be an 80-minute battle.” When DeKalb’s Stephen Darko stole the ball from a defender and sent a right-footed blast into the net with 19:27 remaining in the opening half, the Red Raiders (21-3-1) knew they were in for a long grind. Darko, a transfer from East Aurora, came off the bench to provide what turned out to be the game’s only goal during the third-seeded Barbs’ 1-0 victory over top-seeded Huntley in DeKalb.

  • Balaned Kaneland bounces DeKalb Oct 5, 2013 12:35 AM
    While DeKalb’s offense clearly revolved around standout halfback Dre Brown, Kaneland employed a more versatile attack. Knights senior quarterback Drew David spread the wealth in a 330-yard, 2-touchdown passing performance as four different receivers finished with over 64 yards. Isaac Swithers and Nate Dyer added rushing touchdowns and combined for 136 yards on the ground as Kaneland secured a playoff berth with a 35-12 Northern Illinois Big 12 East victory in DeKalb.

  • Hampshire 2-0 for first time since 2007 Sep 6, 2013 11:20 PM
    When the Hampshire football team needed a sustained drive Friday night, it got one. The Whip-Purs saw their lead on DeKalb cut to 2, 28-26, with 4:42 remaining in the third quarter. Hampshire responded with a 15-play, 75-yard drive that ended with Tim Jansen’s jumping touchdown catch after the Whip-Purs took 7:32 off the clock. The score gave Hampshire a 9-point lead and that was enough to hang on for a 35-34 nonconference victory over the Barbs in Hampshire.

  • DeKalb storms past Vernon Hills in second half Sep 1, 2013 11:13 AM
    It was an all-around tough start to the football season for host Vernon Hills on Friday night against visiting DeKalb. Not only did the Cougars have to endure a nearly two-hour lightning delay before the game finally started, but they also saw a 10-0 lead late in the third quarter quickly slip away after one key turning point. The Barbs (1-0) capitalized on a fumble late in the third quarter before rolling off 25 unanswered points in the final 12:47 of the contest en route to a 25-10 nonconference victory over Vernon Hills (0-1).

  • Plenty of talent returns in NI Big XII Aug 29, 2013 9:42 PM
    The Northern Illinois Big 12 East — conference of the returning starter.Kaneland, which has won the division at 5-0 all three years of its existence, returns 15 starters from last year’s squad, nine of them on offense. Coach Tom Fedderly’s Knights enter the season ranked No. 4 in Class 5A according to The Associated Press.

  • Belletini’s big effort helps Warren bounce Barbs Jun 1, 2013 7:27 PM
    Finally, a team brought in pitchers who could shut down the powerful Warren offense. The DeKalb Barbs have an abundance of quality pitching, which was evident after 3 innings of action in Saturday’s Class 4A sectional title game in Crystal Lake. At that point, the Blue Devils had one ringing single off the bat of cleanup hitter Sam Belletini, and that was it. DeKalb was up a run. The Barbs seemingly had figured out a way to shut down the Warren offense, except for the aforementioned Belletini. And in this case, it turned out to be a heck of an exception. She followed up a key DeKalb error in the fourth inning with a 2-run blast to left field and Warren (26-6) earned its first supersectional berth with a 6-1 win over DeKalb.

  • Kaneland repeats conference title May 16, 2013 8:58 PM
    Kaneland has decorated its left-field fence with softball decals featuring the names and numbers of its senior players. The Knights surely did it as a way to honor those seniors, though those big, oversized yellow softballs served a second purpose for Allyson O’Herron — target practice. The Kaneland shortstop, who was brilliant in the field all day, continued her hot hitting at the plate by lining a double off her name on that left-field fence in the Knights’ 4-0 victory over DeKalb.

  • Huntley has what it takes to dump DeKalb Feb 12, 2013 10:28 PM
    Whatever Huntley needed, the Red Raiders came up with. Whether it was a clutch shot, a defensive stop, a key rebound, or free throws down the stretch, the Raiders did whatever needed to be done. The result was a 50-46 win against DeKalb in the semifinals of the Class 4A Belvidere North girls basketball regional Tuesday night. Huntley (22-6), the No. 3 seed, will face the top-seeded hosts for the regional title Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Huntley will be seeking its second regional title in three years and sixth since 2003. Thursday’s winner moves on to next week’s Rockford East sectional to face the winner of the Rockford Auburn regional.

  • DeKalb denies Kaneland’s 1st attempt at title Feb 8, 2013 11:51 PM
    The Kaneland boys basketball is seeking a second consecutive conference championship. But visiting DeKalb, which had not won this calendar year, truly upset the apple cart for the Knights’ repeat bid in the Northern Illinois Big XII East Friday night. The Barb hit 8 of 14 third-quarter shots, more than doubling their first-half output in the process, and never relinquished an 8-point lead to start the final quarter in denying the Knights 50-45 in Maple Park.

  • Close call, but Montini tips DeKalb in OT Jan 5, 2013 8:15 PM
    Jason Nichols' fears became reality. Montini's girls basketball coach had a feeling his team was not in the proper frame of mind for Saturday's nonconference contest with DeKalb — and he was right. However, despite not being at its best, the Daily Herald's top team still found a way to pull out a 43-38 overtime win against the Barbs in Lombard.

  • DeKalb slows down Kaneland Dec 18, 2012 10:46 PM
    A schedule flaw for Kaneland forced the Knights to make a change and play the same Northern Illinois Big 12 East opponent for the second time in a week Tuesday in Maple Park. Unfortunately for the Knights that opponent was DeKalb. The Barbs aren’t much fun to play once these days, let alone a second time so soon. While Kaneland’s defense made the Barbs work, the Knights had too little firepower to keep up, going scoreless in the second quarter to fall behind 19-7 at halftime of an eventual 38-22 loss.

  • DeKalb tips Geneva in OT Dec 14, 2012 10:52 PM
    The season hasn't hit the halfway point yet, yet the Geneva girls basketball team already has suffered enough close losses to last a year — and then some.

  • Naperville North sees improvement despite defeat Dec 14, 2012 12:03 AM
    Naperville North saw the good in Thursday’s 45-32 loss to DeKalb in their Naperville North/Benet Holiday Tournament opener. “I’m happy, though, because the last time we played them we lost by over 20 (51-30 on Nov. 23) and it felt like a blowout,” Huskies coach Jacquie Discipio said. “Today was a competitive game. We got better. We made them work for all their points, which was our goal. We were competitive, which was a great way to start the tournament.” The Huskies fell to 4-6 on the season. “Every loss hurts, but this I feel was a good loss,” Discipio said. “We were competitive, we got better, we stuck to our plan, I saw some good stuff. We’ll still be ready to go the rest of the tournament.” The Huskies also might have found another go-to player offensively, 5-foot-11 junior Morganne Freeman, who scored 9 points, 7 of them in the first half to keep the game close. “Morganne played the best game of the season for her so far,” Discipio said. “She has great post moves, and I think she’s starting to feel comfortable doing them. It’s interesting that she played another really good post and she finally felt that competitive edge to bring that out tonight. She did a great job. She really sparked us offensively, especially in the first half because we couldn’t find any other way to score.” “I was more confident with my moves and I was taking more shots this game too, and they were just falling,” Freeman said of her varsity-best scoring total. Sophomore Kayla Sharples notched a double-double, scoring 10 points to go with 11 rebounds and 3 steals. Senior guard Zoe Swift overcame early foul trouble to add 8 points. DeKalb (11-1) took a 17-9 lead after the first quarter, 26-15 at halftime as the Huskies leaned on Freeman. “We let them score 17 points in the first quarter and we don’t want to get down by that much,” Freeman said. “We did better the second half. If we would have played the first half like we did the second half we would have won, I think.” “We are good when we are in our transition ball, when we’re pushing the ball up,” Discipio said. “When we have to set up a half-court set, we seem to struggle when we have set plays. So anytime that slows down, and when we take Zoe out everything’s a little bit slower, we have to run half-court sets. So we were having difficulty scoring. “They’re big, though. I think our girls were a little intimidated by that too. They play really good defense, they get in the passing lanes. I think they’re known for that.” DeKalb coach Chris Davenport noticed Swift’s absence. “Obviously, when she’s off the floor it hurts them, because she’s so quick,” he said. The Barbs went up by as many as 16 points in the fourth quarter before the Huskies trimmed the margin to 10. They couldn’t get any closer, however. Madelyn Johnson, a 6-1 sophomore, led DeKalb with 15 points.

  • Glenbard West gets a boost from alum Nov 28, 2012 11:30 PM
    Last season Glenbard West freshman gymnast Sarah DeStefano was in the stands cheering for her cousin Nicole Pagor. With Pagor now a freshman at Northern Illinois University, the roles are reserved.

  • DeKalb denies Kaneland’s comeback Sep 13, 2012 10:14 PM
    Kaneland nearly had a comeback for the ages. The DeKalb girls volleyball team had 7 match points Thursday night against Kaneland in Maple Park, only to see the Knights stave off every conceivable final winner the Barbs might entertain. Unfortunately, the Knights' attempt to send the Northern Illinois Big XII East match into a second extra session came up a point short as DeKalb junior Madison Lord had the last of her 7 kills to deny Kaneland. With its 25-20, 26-28 and 25-23 victory DeKalb moved to 17-3 overall and 2-0 in the league; Kaneland fell to 10-4, 0-2.

  • DeKalb knocks out defending state champ Kaneland May 24, 2012 12:32 AM
    Kaneland's defense of its IHSA Class 3A baseball title didn't go exactly as planned.

  • Kaneland gets down, keeps fighting back May 2, 2012 10:27 PM
    DeKalb brought its big bats to Maple Park on Wednesday, but not even a couple long balls or playing from behind all game long were enough to cool down the red-hot Kaneland Knights. Lexi Roach reached on a bunt single to ignite a 4-run rally in the sixth inning, an uprising that was the difference in a 7-4 win over the Barbs that keeps Kaneland perfect as it closes in on the Nothern Illinois Big 12 East championship.
