  • Grant, Lakes ready for NSC battleMay 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    Normally, a rivalry takes a back seat when a conference championship is on the line. But when the rival is the team standing in the way of a title? Well, that’s different. Grant and Lakes are friendly rivals — in fact, they rooted for one another when both finished in the top five in the Class 2A and 3A state meets last spring. But when the gun goes off Thursday night at Mundelein for the North Suburban Conference boys track and field championships, the friendly rivals will be strictly foes — for one night, at least. Field events start at 4 p.m., with finals on the track slated to start no earlier than 6 p.m.

  • Softball / Lake County roundupMay 12, 2014 12:00 AM
    Wauconda softball coach Tim Rennels put his head down and took a step toward his team’s dugout after Alyssa Wagner flailed at a strike-two pitch for seemingly the last out of the game at Grant. But while Grant began to celebrate, first-base coach Dave Mills told Wagner to run to first base, which she did, because Caitlyn Moran’s pitch bounced in. After the umpires talked about it, they ruled that Wagner was never tagged on the dropped-third strike and that she was safe at first base. Kayla Wedl then hit an inside-the-park home run, and Taylor McCarthy followed with a solo blast over the fence. When Wedl retired Grant in order in the bottom of the seventh, Wauconda had a shocking, 3-1 win Monday to remain undefeated in the North Suburban Prairie Division. Wauconda improved to 20-7 and 9-0 in the NSC Prairie.

    Greatness for Grant in NSC meetMay 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    On a night Lakes' Brittani Griesbaum nearly beat the great Brittny Ellis of Warren, when Griesbaum's teammate Kortney Schardt and fellow 1,600-meters competitor Lisa Bennatan of Lake Forest engaged in a photo finish of their own, Grant made sure there would be no doubt which track team would emerge as the North Suburban Conference champion. By the time anchor-leg Delaney Basala grabbed the baton, Grant's speedy sophomore had a large lead. She cruised to the finish, as the Bulldogs (4:08.18) won by nearly three seconds. Before the 1,600 relay even began, the Bulldogs had all but officially secured their first NSC title since 2007. Grant totaled 111 points at Vernon Hills on Friday, while Lakes (103.75) was second. Griesbaum's stellar night also included breaking the meet record in the long jump, as her mark of 18-5.5 bettered the 18-1.75 set by North Chicago's Aisha Morton in 2000.
