  • Hollywood ending for Stevenson’s Rudy Feb 21, 2015 9:24 PM
    Kaitlyn Rudy of Stevenson, who made her first trip to the girls bowling state finals, is now the highest-finishing competitor in the program’s history. And she achieved that lofty standing by virtue of a frenetic finish. Going into the final game on Saturday, the Patriots junior was in the 12th spot, just thinking about trying to hang on for a medal. But Rudy finished with an impressive 247 game that moved her up to third place (2,639 over the 12 games) in the girls bowling state tournament at Cherry Bowl.

     
  • Hard-working Hernandez, Waubonsie Valley back in title picture Feb 20, 2015 8:58 PM
    Hard work really does pay off. Especially for Waubonsie Valley’s Angelica Hernandez, who’s seen her bowling average rise by 78 pins in less than a year. Hernandez had a 118 average last March, but she steadily made gains, practicing and working on her game while seeing improvement all along the way. The result was an average approaching the 200 mark entering the state tournament weekend at Cherry Bowl in Rockford. On Friday, the sophomore started off with a 604 series with games of 224, 181 and 199. In the afternoon, she threw games of 209, 174 and 183 for a 566 series for a 6-game total of 1,170.

  • Libertyville’s Gunther guns it, reaches state final Feb 20, 2015 11:03 PM
    Joey Gunther was a smashing success Friday. The Libertyville senior advanced to the 160-pound state wrestling final after outlasting Trace Carello of Marmion Academy in a marathon semifinal in Champaign. The top-seeded Gunther won 3-2 when he was awarded the 1-point winner as Carello (20-4) was unable to break away from an unyielding hold. “It’s wasn’t at all pretty, but as I said after my quarterfinal this morning, it’s not about style points down here,” said Gunther (36-1). Assured of a state medal, Gunther next tried to become the fourth state champ in Libertyville history. He’ll meet Matthew Rundell (32-3) of Oak Park-River Forest in the title bout on Day 3 of the state tournament.

     
  • 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.

  • Sherwood surpasses 1,000 in Prospect’s playoff win Feb 18, 2015 11:20 PM
    When you watch Catherine Sherwood on the basketball floor, it seems like there are a thousand ways she can beat you to the basket. Appropriately enough on Wednesday night, she became the eighth player in Prospect girls basketball history to score 1,000 points. Needing just 1 point to reach the milestone, Sherwood did it by hitting the first of two free throws with 3:07 left in the first quarter. It also gave Prospect a 12-3 lead which was eventually extended to 31-3. The Mid-Suburban League East champs went on to post a 50-25 victory in the semifinal game of the Class 4A Grayslake North Class regional over the host school which was seeded 15th in the Palatine sectional.

     
  • Bowen helps Grayslake North buck Central Feb 17, 2015 10:53 PM
    In his last rivalry game, Lee Bowen gave host Grayslake North a huge spark en route to its 54-47 victory over Grayslake Central on Tuesday in boys basketball. Bowen, a reserve, scored 4 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and was a force defensively. He did much of his damage in the fourth quarter when the Knights were trying to break open a close game.

     
  • Girls basketball / Lake County roundup Feb 16, 2015 11:05 PM
    In the second game Monday at Carmel Catholic, Lake Zurich advanced in Class 4A girls basketball regional play after a 48-41 victory over Deerfield. Elly Daleske scored 16 points to lead the way for Lake Zurich, while Deerfield was led by Jesse Holloway with 15.

     
  • Starring role for Einloth in Grayslake Central’s win Feb 14, 2015 9:47 PM
    The bounce pass — delivered from near the half-court line to a cutting Lucas Buckels, who finished at the rim — would have played nicely at the NBA All-Star Game festivities in New York this weekend. “I love (distributing the ball),” 6-foot-5 junior Aidan Einloth said. “I’d rather have 15 assists than 30 points, any night.” Grayslake North’s star settled for 17 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists, as the visiting Knights pulled away from Crystal Lake Central to capture a 60-43 win in a Fox Valley Conference Fox Division game Saturday night. One more assist would have given Einloth his second career triple-double, as he had one last season against Hampshire.

     
  • Grayslake North pins down state berth Feb 14, 2015 11:03 PM
    Four pins. That’s what denied Grayslake North’s girls bowling team a trip to state last year. It weighed heavily on the minds of the Knights, who got their shot at redemption Saturday. And this time they didn’t let opportunity slip away. The Knights secured a spot at Cherry Bowl in Rockford next weekend by finishing third in the Rolling Meadows sectional at Brunswick Zone Mt. Prospect. Grayslake North totaled 5,731 pins, while Schaumburg was the sectional champion with a 5,841 total. Runner-up Hersey (5,758) and Hoffman Estates (5,710) also qualified for state.

     
  • Grayslake North charges back to beat Dundee-Crown Feb 13, 2015 11:18 PM
    If Grayslake North’s girls basketball team can ride the momentum of its fourth quarter Friday night into the postseason, the Knights could be a team to not take lightly. Grayslake North dumped 26 points through the basket in the final quarter to notch a 54-49 come-from-behind win over Dundee-Crown in a Fox Valley Conference crossover of the league’s two third place teams in Carpentersville.

  • Basketball mourns coaching losses, but their lessons will endure Feb 12, 2015 5:41 PM
    Two college coaching giants died this week, Dean Smith and Jerry Tarkanian. Their influence on the game of basketball and other coaches is widespread. In that vein, Patricia Babcock McGraw polled boys coaches in the Daily Herald's Lake County coverage area about their biggest influences in coaching.

  • 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.”

     
  • Einloth, Grayslake North persevere past Hampshire Feb 7, 2015 9:27 PM
    Grayslake North coach Todd Grunloh had seen that. Dom DiProva elevating both his athletic body and jump shot. Dom DiProva swatting and scoring. Dom dominating. But during Grayslake North’s 59-41 win over visiting Hampshire in a Fox Valley Fox Division boys basketball game Saturday, neither Grunloh nor Whip-Purs coach Bob Barnett had seen this. With the Knights leading 23-12 midway through the second quarter, Hampshire reserve forward Austin Spaeth grabbed his gym bag and left the gym. He never returned. Barnett had just taken Spaeth out of the game after the 6-foot senior had been called for traveling. “I didn’t want him getting a technical, so I thought I’d sit him down and calm him down,” Barnett said. “The next thing I know, he walks by and says, ‘I quit.’ ... Twenty-eight years as a head coach, I’ve never had that happen.”
