Lake Zurich instead circled the calendar and has been aiming for a return in a couple of weeks. The Bears are in the unique position of hosting Lake County’s Class 4A sectional from March 11 to March 14. For most of the last 10 years, that job had been held by either Waukegan or Barrington.

  • Lovelle helps Wauconda snap skidFeb 25, 2014 12:00 AM

    Wauconda’s Magiera powers to 220-pound titleFeb 22, 2014 12:00 AM
    Tom Nance, his coaching staff, and even the teammates of Wauconda’s super 220-pounder Nate Magiera spent the entire week putting together the perfect tactical plan. The idea was to have everything in order for a test against No. 1-ranked Edgar Ruano. Magiera, who’d only lost to Ruano this season, was rated No. 2 in the state. But then, 22 seconds into the Class 2A champoionship match under the bright lights in Champaign, Magiera blew apart all that preparation. And boy, is Nance thrilled that happened. When at his best, Magiera is capable of humbling anyone — even Ruano — and Saturday night, that’s exactly what the Bulldogs senior did. With a magnificent display of power and skill, Magiera used every weapon in his arsenal to throttle Ruano 17-4 and capture the state championship trophy. It’s the school’s first since Scott Carlson won in 2009 at 152 pounds.

  • Grant seniors have their moment against Vernon HillsFeb 21, 2014 12:00 AM
    It was all seniors versus all juniors in the starting lineups. And on senior night at Grant on Friday, it was the seniors who prevailed.

  • Antioch campaigns for sectional participationFeb 20, 2014 12:00 AM
    Last year, when Antioch hosted the Class 3A sectional, it was the players on the basketball team that helped with game operations. The Sequoits, who had been eliminated from the tournament by then, did everything from run errands to assist during the 3-point shooting contest. “We’re hosting the sectional again this year, and the goal that we set in our first classroom meeting of the season is that we want to find other people to work the sectional because we want to play in it,” Antioch coach Jim White said. “We’re hoping that we get a better seed to help us get through the regional so that we can get back to our place for the sectional.”

The road will only get tougher for this quartet and the others competing in the championship bracket.
