  • IBCA Hall of Fame a just reward for Elgin’s Turek Jan 15, 2015 8:15 PM
    Sports writers loved Lee Turek. Officials may not have liked him all the time. And the girls who played basketball for him at Elgin High may not have liked him all the time. But sports writers loved him. One thing Turek always had going for him, win or lose, was his candor. Most times, that candor was more on display after a loss than a win. Many of the things Turek had to say after a basketball game never saw print, and never will. Another thing Turek always had going for him, and still does, was his passion for the game of basketball, for the athletes he coached and for Elgin High School. And on Saturday, May 2 Turek will receive a just reward for his career when he is inducted into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

  • Andresen likes the progress D300 co-op is making Jan 14, 2015 9:48 PM
    While the District 300 (Dundee-Crown, Hampshire, Jacobs) boys swimming team didn’t register a victory in a recent meet against the District 155 co-op team, coach Rick Andresen saw plenty of progress that has him optimistic about what lies ahead. “We had a good meet,” he said. “We saw a lot of encouraging things and we saw some things that need work. We are getting better, but we need to tighten some things. The times we swam were very respectable. We had nice time drops in some events. All of the hard work we did during the holiday break might be paying off. I’m pleased overall, especially with the improvement of our younger kids.”
