    Wins, PRs come for Neuqua ValleyMay 15, 2014 12:00 AM
    Neuqua Valley boys track coach Mike Kennedy provided his athletes a simple message for Thursday’s Upstate Eight Conference meet at Elgin’s Memorial Stadium. “He told us, every race you go into, either you win or you PR, because you win either way,” said Wildcats junior Zac Espinosa. He achieved both in the 400-meter run, edging teammate Nick Rafacz while setting a personal record at 49.33 seconds. Neuqua Valley did win either way, both in the Valley Division and among all 14 UEC teams. In the first year of a post-Lake Park UEC, the Wildcats earned a total of 131 points, a fair cushion over Waubonsie Valley’s 109 and River Division winner Batavia’s 103.

  • Controlling out of control games no easy task for any coachMay 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    What’s a coach to do? Your team is ahead of the opponent, say, 12-0 after two innings. You know if your team keeps playing it straight at it might be 20-0, or worse, by the time the fifth inning rolls around and the slaughter rule takes effect. So what’s a coach to do? Some will say tough, that’s the way it is, and do nothing except let the game play out. Others will have runners leave early, or bunt back to the pitcher, or have their hitters intentionally swing at bad pitches — anything to get it over quicker and not embarrass the other team.
