  • Down to the details, Elk Grove’s Williams preps for state meet Feb 24, 2015 8:15 PM
    For Elk Grove’s Colin Williams, the details matter. After excelling in last weekend’s sectional meet at Glenbrook North, Williams arrived for an afternoon practice at his home pool in advance of this weekend’s state meet preliminaries. As he strolled into the pool office, coach Keith Kura was about to tell him where he’d be seeded in his top event, the 100-yard butterfly, in this weekend’s state swimming meet at New Trier. Turns out his senior standout had already thoroughly researched the topic online. “He looks at me and goes, ‘Second, right?’ ” said Kura. “I’m like, ‘Yep — second.’ I should have know he’d know.” That’s right — Williams’ qualifying effort of 49.91 was the second-fastest in Illinois.

  • Sigmund eager for healthy start at Elk Grove Feb 24, 2015 7:51 PM
    Freezing temperatures and a bad headcold could not keep John Sigmund away from his first meeting with his new football team Monday. Sigmund was named last Friday as the next head coach at Elk Grove, and he’d set up the meeting so he could formally introduce himself to his new players and staff. “I am struggling right now,” said Sigmund, “but I am really happy. It is a great opportunity and I am looking forward to the challenge.”

  • Magical afternoon for MSL East at Glenbrook North Feb 21, 2015 7:47 PM
    How did the Mid-Suburban East’s top boys swimming teams stack up at the Glenbrook North sectional on Saturday afternoon? In historically strong fashion, that’s how. With winners in 5 of the 8 individual swimming events, those East teams showed they certainly belonged in a field led by meet champion New Trier (287 points) and Glenbrook North (181.5). Rolling Meadows added to its memorable season by finishing third with 157 points, 1 point better than Loyola, and breaking all kinds of new ground along the way. Rolling Meadows, Prospect, Hersey and Elk Grove each had event winners, and Wheeling advanced a pair of relays to next weekend's state meet.

  • Hersey wraps up 9-1 East finish Feb 21, 2015 12:41 AM
    Hersey’s boys basketball team finished off a 9-1 effort against Mid-Suburban East foes with a 57-47 victory over Wheeling on Friday. Payton Haas led the Huskies with 19 points, Zak Cooper had 14 and Joey Coffaro had 9.

  • Sigmund chosen to lead Elk Grove football program Feb 20, 2015 3:54 PM
    Elk Grove has named John Sigmund as the school’s new football head coach. Sigmund has spent the last 11 seasons at Glenbard West, including the last eight as offensive coordinator as the Hilltoppers were a postseason regular. Glenbard West has qualified for the playoff eight straight years and has appeared in two championship games in that span, winning a Class 7A state title in 2012 and finishing runner-up in 2009. Sigmund, a Pennsylvania native, played tight end collegiately at Wisconsin. He will teach Physical Education at Elk Grove in addition to leading the football program. “Mr. Sigmund has earned enormous praise as a phenomenal educator and an outstanding influence on young people,” Elk Grove Principal Paul Kelly said. “I cannot wait to work with him as he leads our student-athletes on the field and in the classroom.”

  • Boys swimming: Sectional scouting, Northwest Feb 19, 2015 3:32 PM
    Here's what to expect from Saturday's boys swimming and diving sectional meets, from the perspective of teams in the Mid-Suburban League plus St. Viator and Maine West.

  • Engelbreit, Conant measure up against Elk Grove Feb 17, 2015 9:49 PM
    One statistic by Conant’s Dani Engelbreit symbolized the character of this year’s Cougars girls basketball team. Engelbreit had a team-high 6 rebounds in the Cougars’ 56-34 win over Elk Grove in the semifinal of the Class 4A Addison Trail regional. The 6 rebounds may not seem all that significant until you realize Engelbreit was one of the smallest players on the floor as a 5-foot-4 senior guard.

  • Wheeling overcomes 35 from Maine West’s Acevedo Feb 18, 2015 12:22 AM
    Wheeling junior forward Dylan Draka scored 21 points and teammate Jalen Dennis had 14, including a floater in the lane as time ran out to send Tuesday’s nonconference boys basketball matchup against visiting Wheeling into overtime. The Wildcats took control in the extra session, outscoring the Warriors 15-8 in an 84-77 victory.

  • Elk Grove posts a victory over Addison Trail Feb 16, 2015 11:45 PM
    Addison Trail girls basketball coach Rob Schrader was quick to determine why Elk Grove moved on Tuesday’s semifinals of the Class 4A Addison Trail regional. “They (Elk Grove) had two good size post players, and if you can’t deny them the entry passes you are going to have a tough time,” he said. Sure enough, Grenadiers senior posts O’Rayn Macavoy and Amber Lindfors made the most of their time inside. Macavoy collected a game-high 20 points with 12 rebounds while Lindfors added 9 points with 16 rebounds to help the No. 16 seeded Grens post a 49-28 victory over the No. 20 Blazers (4-25) in Addison on Monday night.

  • Goranson can grin after successful softball rehab Feb 16, 2015 3:18 PM
    Dani Goranson is back. And that brought the tears to smiles. Through a 21-month period where she did not throw in a game for Michigan State, the former Elk Grove softball great wasn’t sure if she would ever throw again. “I really didn’t think I would,” said Goranson, who was one of the most dominating pitchers the Mid-Suburban League has seen. “There were so many nights I would call my dad and cry and we’d reminisce about all the great times on the mound because I thought I’d never play again. But with tremendous support from her parents (Jim and Wendy), her boyfriend Dylan Edwards and Michigan State trainer Salina Halliday, Goranson kept at her rehab even through difficult struggles. It finally paid off when she returned to the mound for the first time last week. The right-hander went the final three innings of a 6-0 shutout over Moorehead State in the Stetson Tournament in DeLand, Fla.

  • Gold-medal efforts at Barrington Feb 14, 2015 9:00 PM
    The wide array of sports being contested at Barrington High School on Saturday almost gave the campus the feel you’d find at a Olympic-style winter sports festival. Wrestling over here, basketball over there — and down this hallway, the Mid-Suburban League boys swimming and diving championships. And in the pool, the host Broncos ended up celebrating a successful defense of their MSL team title, emerging on top in a finish that was much more tightly grouped than usual. Barrington won with 233 points, followed closely by Fremd (218). Rolling Meadows (183) turned in its highest-ever finish in third place, with Palatine (169) taking a big jump up as well to fourth.

  • Lindfors, Elk Grove handle Plainfield South Feb 14, 2015 1:00 AM
    Elk Grove finished its girls basketball regular season with a 52-36 nonconference win at Plainfield South on Friday night. The Grenadiers, who held the home team to 14 points in the second half, were led on offense by Southeast Missouri State recruit Amber Lindfors. The 6-foot-4 senior center scored a game-high 18 points, converting 7 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws.

  • Haas’ big 3 helps Hersey win at Maine West Feb 15, 2015 12:27 AM
    Less than 24 hours after clinching a berth in the Mid-Suburban League boys basketball championship game, Hersey was back on the road Saturday. And it was a winning path again as they traveled to Des Plaines to win the nonconference matchup 47-46 over Maine West. Payton Haas hit a 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left to boost the Huskies (16-8) into the lead. He finished with a team-high 17 points.

  • Beyak, Mack pace Prospect’s victory Feb 14, 2015 12:47 AM
    Prospect senior Kyle Beyak shot 8-for-10 from 2-point range and 2-for-5 from beyond the arc on his way to a game-high 26 points as the visiting Knights topped Wheeling 75-58 on Friday in Mid-Suburban East boys basketball. Sophomore guard Frankie Mack shot 5-for-6 from 3-point range and finished with 20 points and a team-best 9 rebounds for the Knights (11-10, 5-4).

  • Boys swimming and diving / Scouting the Mid-Suburban League meet Feb 13, 2015 8:19 PM
    Here's a look ahead to the Mid-Suburban League boys swimming and diving championships, where host Barrington hopes to defend its title. Diving will begin at 6 p.m. Friday, with swimming scheduled to start at 1 p.m. Saturday.

  • Pro-actively, Calhoun is in at Mundelein Feb 10, 2015 10:07 PM
    Larry Calhoun is not promising championships, nor Mike Singletary. “We’re in negotiations,” Calhoun joked after being introduced by the Mundelein District 120 board of education Tuesday night as Mundelein’s new football coach. For Calhoun, discovering a linebacker that has the piercing eyes or plays with the warrior mentality that Singletary did will probably suffice, for starters. Calhoun, 52, comes to Mundelein after serving as Elk Grove’s coach the last three years. His son, Cooper, is married to Singletary’s daughter Kristen. Cooper and Kristen have a young daughter, and that’s the reason Calhoun and his wife made the move to Illinois’ northwest suburbs from Texas three years ago.

  • Kuzmanic (35 points) excels in home finale victory Feb 11, 2015 12:27 AM
    Playing her final home game of a standout four-year girls basketball career at Wheeling High School, Deanna Kuzmanic put up one of the finest performances. The Alabama-Birmingham recruit scored a season-high 35 points with 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals as the Wildcats raced past visiting Barrington 56-30 in the Mid-Suburban League crossover on Tuesday night. “It was quite a game,” said Wheeling coach Matt Weber who has had quite a first season directing the Wildcats to 20 wins. “It was the best individual performance I’ve seen this year and last year as an assistant.”

  • Lewis projects Elk Grove’s Post as top-of-the-order plus Feb 9, 2015 3:28 PM
    Heading into this spring’s baseball season, Elk Grove’s Brandon Post is flying high. He has already signed a national letter of intent to play for the Lewis Flyers baseball program along with six other recruits who will join him in Romeoville for the 2015-16 school year. “All seven of these signees come from winning programs and have played a high level of competition which should translate well to competing in the Great Lakes Valley Conference,” said Flyers coach Tim McDonough. “I feel all the young men have a chance to be consistent regulars for us and all-conference type performers. Coach (Mike) Vucsko and coach (Jon) Drahos did a great job with the evaluation and recruitment of this group.”

  • Standout efforts from Stevenson, Barrington’s Tenyer Feb 7, 2015 7:51 PM
    Stevenson senior Sam Szura, a competitor since her freshman season, called her four seasons of participation in varsity girls bowling “a real trip.” “We started at the bottom and worked our way up, that’s for sure,” said Szura. “That’s why I’m so ecstatic right now. I’m crying.” The tears that Szura and her teammates were shedding Saturday were tears of joy as the Patriots surprised by winning the Palatine Regional at Brunswick Zone in Deer Park. “We expected to advance,” said Szura, “but we never expected to win the regional. I was nervous all day — I’m kind of a worry-wart — but in the end we were able to pull through, and I’m thrilled that we did.” Stevenson’s pinfall of 5,515 was a whopping 120 pins better than second-place Hoffman Estates (5,358), and both teams will advance to Saturday’s sectional tourney hosted by Rolling Meadows. Schaumburg (5,308) and Lake Zurich (5,288) will also move on to the sectional meet to be held at Brunswick in Mount Prospect, while the magical season of Barrington sophomore Sarah Tenyer continued in earnest. Just a week after winning Mid-Suburban League honors, Tenyer won medalist bragging rights at Deer Park with a 6-game total of 1,302 pins, including games of 246 and 235.
