  • Mundelein finding ways to enjoy the struggle Feb 19, 2015 9:55 PM
    Staying upbeat during a 2-25 season isn’t easy. So Mundelein coach Corey Knigge has gone out of his way to make sure his players are having some fun off the court. “We’ve had two rough seasons in a row,” said Knigge, referring to last year’s 2-28 campaign and the 0-11 mark in North Suburban Conference play this is part of this year’s two-win season. “We want the kids, especially our seniors, to have some good memories of this season.” On Wednesday, Knigge took his team down to Loyola University to a men’s game against Northern Iowa, which features former Mundelein standout Robert Knar. Last week, the Mustangs made their first trip to Loyola, to watch another former Mundelein star, Sean O’Brien, a sophomore at Southern Illinois.

     
  • Grayslake Central’s Makey making good in third downstate trip Feb 19, 2015 9:49 PM
    It’s easy to dwell on the rich wrestling tradition of Lake County’s perennial powers such as Libertyville and Grant. But there’s certainly room for more in that category, and Grayslake Central’s fast-growing program would love to join it. With competitors like Jon Makey around, the Rams certainly have taken a step in that direction. Coach Mark Stewart and Makey, a four-year veteran of the program, have formed a terrific partnership. And now, after the first day of the wrestling state touranment, Makey has broken new ground with his first state tournament victory. The senior now turns his attention to bigger and better things. Makey (41-3) will meet Chase Vosburgh (42-0) of Mt. Vernon in the 11 a.m. Class 2A quarterfinal session with an opportunity to enhance his chances at a state medal.

  • Sweet finish for Grayslake North Feb 10, 2015 11:10 PM
    The cake was laid out for the Grayslake North seniors. It was stationed in a nearby room, awaiting the party for the six Knights’ seniors. All North had to do was to dispense of 2-game winner Grant on Tuesday night in Grayslake. Evidently, the Grant team didn’t get the same memo. Especially Bulldogs senior Jacob Hanlin. He went to halftime with 17 points in his back pocket. On two more free throws from Hanlin, it looked like the North party might turn sour. The Grant lead was 16 points at 49-33 in the third quarter. “We let up a bunch of easy shots,’’ said North senior Lucas Buckels. “We were able to score the whole game. But we started a concerted effort to stop them.” Buckels and teammate Aidan Einloth both scored 18 points as Grayslake North (13-8) tied this nonconference game early in the fourth quarter and went on to post a 63-57 win.

  • Novak, Warren savoring this sectional trip Feb 7, 2015 10:42 PM
    Rolling right along, there’s Warren coach Rich Novak. He’s been coaching in the Blue Devils girls bowling program for the last 20 years, the last 10 as head coach. But all rolls must end eventually, which means Novak will especially enjoy this season and one last trip to the sectional round. Novak’s squad was one of four to advanced from the Warren regional at Bertrand Lanes on Saturday. “Getting to the sectional was one of our goals,” Novak said. “They all stayed together and worked together through everything.” Novak will retire after this school year. He’s looking forward to a bright future, both for the Warren program and himself. “Retiring is hard to do,” he said, “but I know it’s time to get younger people out here — and I want to do some traveling.”
