    Life in the fast lane: Warren’s Ellis third in 400May 24, 2014 12:00 AM
    Warren junior Brittny Ellis usually has no troubles switching gears, but the Blue Devils junior couldn’t quite get the acceleration she would have liked in the 400-meter final of the Class 3A girls track and field state meet at Eastern Illinois University’s O’Brien Stadium on Saturday. Ellis, the two-time defending 400 champion, entered the final turn neck-and-neck with Evanston senior Parker English and North Lawndale senior Briyahna DesRosiers. But Ellis couldn’t match the closing speed of English or DesRosiers. English finished first in a blistering 53.88, nipping DesRosiers (53.92) and followed by Ellis (54.30).

  • Bright finishes for Brey; Grayslake C. takes team titleMay 23, 2014 12:00 AM
    Somehow after running 3 miles, and doing so fast enough to qualify for the boys track and field state meet, St. Viator senior Nick Brey still had enough energy to jump in the air and chest-bump his teammates. “For some reason, after any race I have the energy somewhere to do that,” the Marquette-bound Brey said. “It started at conference last week with one of our sophomores, but I just wanted to keep it up.” Brey came up with a pair of second-place finishes at the Class 2A Grayslake Central sectional Friday night, but both were under the state cut and qualified Brey for a pair of events at state for the first time. His 4:28.96 in the 1,600 broke the school record set by Tim Phillips in 1979. Brey’s 9:33.07 clocking was not quite a school mark, but was plenty good for a state-qualifying berth.

But she returned to the lineup about midway through the season. Then on Saturday, Bulgart’s first home run of the season was a 2-run walk-off shot in the bottom of the sixth that capped the Mustangs’ 14-3 win over visiting Lakes in Game 2 of a doubleheader. Mundelein won the opener, a North Suburban Conference crossover, 11-7, getting home runs from Maddie Zazas (her third of the season) and Jamie Hemmer (seventh).

  • Once again, Grayslake Central’s a hitMay 17, 2014 12:00 AM
    Of course, the groundball off the bat of Grayslake Central’s Anthony Fitzgerald hit the heel of teammate Pat Burba, who was running to second base. During its two-day, two-game series with Grayslake North, Grayslake Central had nine batters get hit by pitched baseballs. So getting pegged by a batted ball wasn’t going to faze the Rams. At least Freddie Landers was able to joke about it after visiting Grayslake Central won 15-4 Saturday morning. Rams coach Troy Whalen says Landers and Sam Nozicka each have been hit close to 20 times this season. “We’ve joked that the hit batsman has been our best offensive weapon all year,” Whalen said.

I feel very confident going into the sectionals next week.” McHenry, led by junior distance standout Jesse Reiser, claimed the conference championship with a score of 103.50.
