  • Lake Zurich reclaims NSC boys cross country title Oct 18, 2014 7:49 PM
    After taking second place to Vernon Hills last year, the Lake Zurich boys cross country team returned to the league mountain top Saturday afternoon at the North Suburban Conference meet in Lake Forest. The Bears outdistanced the runner-up Cougars this time around as Lake Zurich captured the championship of the 13-team meet with 43 points, well ahead of VH’s 96, in the 3-mile race on the grounds of the west campus.

  • Girls cross country: Repeat NSC title for Lake Zurich Oct 18, 2014 8:09 PM
    After winning the North Suburban Conference title by 26 points last year over Vernon Hills, Lake Zurich knew it was definitely a contender to make it two in a row Saturday afternoon at Lake Forest’s west campus. And the determined Bears did exactly that on the slightly muddy and damp 3-mile course as they earned a third NSC championship in the last four years, finishing with 68 points to 89 for runner-up Warren. It turned out to be an epic battle for that second-place finish in the team standings as the Blue Devils edged Libertyville (93 points) in third, the host Scouts (94) in fourth, and Vernon Hills (96) in fifth.

  • Faced with postseason challenge, Vernon Hills thrives Oct 18, 2014 7:31 PM
    With five, the Vernon Hills football team is still alive. The Cougars have been in must-win mode for a while now, and they keep rising to the occasion. Their latest triumph in staying relevant in the playoff race was a 20-6 win at Grant on Saturday afternoon. Now, the Cougars are 5-3 on the season (4-2 North Suburban Conference Prairie Division) and could qualify for the IHSA playoff field if they have enough playoff points when the regular season ends next weekend. They would actually qualify for the playoffs outright if they can defeat Lake Zurich in their season finale crossover on Friday. That would give them their sixth win.

  • Prospect likes its downstate prospects Oct 13, 2014 9:39 PM
    All the work and practices Prospect coach Jim Hamann put his girls golf team through this fall were geared toward seeing his players enjoying their best golf at the end of the season. With that in mind, the Knights sure must have made their coach proud on Tuesday at Bittersweet Golf Club in Gurnee. They produced their best team score of the season (330) in some of the toughest conditions of the fall. With many golfers still having to finish their rounds due to rainy weather suspending play late in the afternoon, all of the results of the Warren Class AA sectional are still unofficial and not yet reported to the IHSA. Coaches will be alerted early in the morning if play will resume at noon Tuesday. If conditions are still unsuitable, Wednesday would be the finishing day. Yet to finish their team scores are Barrington, Loyola, Libertyville and Crystal Lake Central.

And the Patriots proved they were a cut above the rest in the 14-team meet, as they easily clinched the title over the runner-up Scouts by a comfortable 38-25 score. Warren and Libertyville battled down to the wire with the Blue Devils holding off the Wildcats 23-21.5 for third place. Lake Zurich captured fifth with 16 points.

  • Warren’s full arsenal on display Oct 10, 2014 11:20 PM

  • Libertyville edges Carmel for regional title Oct 8, 2014 10:25 PM
    In a girls golf season that has seen both teams win conference championships, Carmel Catholic and Libertyville took aim Wednesday at flexing flagsticks, not necessarily each other, despite the proximity of the two schools. “It’s not what you might think,” Libertyville coach Greg Pedersen said with a laugh. “No war on (Rte.) 176 or anything like that.” Libertyville won the friendly battle, the Class AA Carmel regional, on a gusty day in Waukegan. Led by medalist Simone Mikaelian’s 83, the North Suburban Conference-champion Wildcats carded a 344 to best runner-up Carmel (364) by 20 strokes at Bonnie Brook Golf Course.

  • Huge finale favors Grant Oct 2, 2014 11:32 PM
    With seven ticks to play in Thursday’s battle at Grant, it sure looked like a 16-game losing streak was about to end for Wauconda. That’s because brave Wauconda quarterback Kevin Malisheski had lobbed an improbable TD pass to Josh Anderson of 46 yards. Wauconda was up by 3 points. And then the impossible happened. There was one second left in the game and home-standing Grant had just enough time for one play, with 60 yards to go.

  • Mikaelian, Libertyville climb to the top in NSC Sep 30, 2014 10:27 PM
    Even the best golfers top a shot, say, once a year. “I do it more often than you’d probably think,” Libertyville’s Simone Mikaelian said with a sheepish laugh. On Bonnie Brook Golf Course’s par-3 No. 3 Tuesday, Mikaelian topped her tee shot, which landed in the bottom of a pond. She carded a rare double-bogey. The best golfers, however, don’t lament topped shots, other bad ones or bad holes. By the end of the North Suburban Conference meet, Mikaelian was the top golfer, topped shot and all. Her 80 earned her the inaugural Marlene Miller medalist honor, as the sophomore finished 1 stroke better than senior Annette Yandall, who was the only golfer representing Wauconda. Led by the 5-foot-3 Mikaelian and other all-conference rounds from Megan Sturonas (88, sixth), Katherine Stegman (93, 10th) and Jessica Lovinger (95, 16th), Libertyville capped off a perfect NSC season by capturing the conference championship with a 356. Stevenson (372), which lost its dual meet against Libertyville on a sixth-score tiebreaker, was second. Lake Forest (377), Vernon Hills (381) and Mundelein (394) completed the top five.

  • It all comes together for NSC champ Vernon Hills Sep 30, 2014 8:03 PM

Vernon Hills posted a top score of 297, 5 shots better than Lake Forest (302) and 7 ahead of Stevenson (304) in the NSC meet.
