It’s Hampshire’s first regional title since 2005 and only its second since 1974. Matt Bridges scored 26 points and Brennen Woods added 23 for Hampshire (17-11), which takes on Belvidere regional winner Rockford Lutheran on Wednesday in the Rochelle sectional.

    Cory Lamb turned the game around in a heartbeat. With Hampshire trailing Prairie Ridge by a point, the Wolves’ junior swingman nailed a 3-pointer, made a steal and completed a conventional 3-point play, all in the span of about 20 seconds.

    While tournament favorites Michael Cullen, Eric Barone and Christian Brunner dominated their first-day tournament opponents, the story at the IHSA Class 3A individual state wrestling tournament Thursday still has to be of Gomez, the Cary-Grove senior. The Trojans’ heavyweight did some wrecking business of his own at State Farm Arena, and in doing so has now set up a date with Brian Ditchman (40-3) of Lincoln-Way Central) in one of several key quarterfinal bouts to take place Friday at 11 a.m.

  • Hampshire tops Genoa-Kingston; Sycamore up next Feb 16, 2015 11:17 PM
    Hampshire coach Mike Featherly said junior guard Nikki Dumoulin’s contributions often “go under the radar.” That is partly because the 5-foot-8 junior plays on the same girls basketball team as junior Emma Benoit (6-0), a 1,000-point scorer, and 5-9 sophomore Peyton DeChant, a duo that combined for 29 points in No. 3 Hampshire’s 49-30 Class 3A Sycamore regional quarterfinal victory over No. 6 Genoa-Kingston on Monday.
