  • Fox Valley residents can walk to help provide clean drinking water Jan 29, 2015 11:37 AM
    When it comes to changing the world, every small step counts, says Bill Klaves, associate director for Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley. That’s the idea behind the organization’s 25th annual Walk-A-Thon Feb. 28 at Spring Hill Mall in West Dundee. The event will raise funds for providing clean drinking water in Guatemala. “It would allow families in rural communities to have safe, drinkable water,” Klaves said.

  • Jacobs hopes to keep roll going at Dundee-Crown Jan 27, 2015 10:00 PM
    Maybe playing on rival Dundee-Crown’s home court will slow the momentum of the Jacobs boys basketball team. Little else has lately.

  • Wheeling tunes up with strong second half Jan 26, 2015 11:28 PM
    Wheeling’s girls basketball team surely won’t be short on momentum heading into Tuesday night’s visit from Rolling Meadows. The Wildcats will be coming off one of their best halves of the season.

  • Huntley rolls over Jacobs for 11th straight win Jan 24, 2015 11:22 PM
    Jacobs girls basketball coach Joe Benoit threw every defensive set he had in his bag of tricks at Huntley forward Ali Andrews on Saturday. As it turned out, all the fronting, traps and double teams dedicated to the 6-foot 2 forward still wasn’t enough in Huntley’s 58-34 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division home win over the Golden Eagles.

  • Poetker powers Stevenson downstate Jan 24, 2015 10:40 PM
    Only a 6-pin denied Matt Poetker perfection. The Stevenson bowler settled for a 299 in his fourth game Saturday as part of the Stevenson sectional at Lakeside Lanes in Mundelein on Saturday. After he rolled his final ball, he couldn’t even watch it spin down the lane. “It was something to experience,” said Poetker, who had a 300 game two years ago, but not in high school competition. “It really gave the team the push it needed. I got really nervous on the last shot. The ball stuck on the thumb. Whatever happened, happened at that point. I really didn’t look. I had my eyes closed.” Stevenson had highlights other than Poetker’s 299 game, as the Patriots qualified for state for the first time along with five other teams. Harlem won the sectional with one of the best 6-game pinfalls (6,552) in the state. Rockton Hononegah was a close second (6,537). Stevenson took third place (6,215), followed by St. Charles East (6,027), Lake Zurich (5,983) and Freeport (5,960) in the 16-team field. All six teams will compete in the state tournament beginning Friday at St. Clair Lanes in downstate O’Fallon.

  • Jacobs pulls away from Elgin Jan 24, 2015 10:34 PM
    With the seconds ticking off the clock at the end of the first half, and leading Elgin by just one, Jacobs’ Cory Boeckh lobbed a pass toward the basket where Kenton Mack snatched the ball out of the air. Instead of slamming it home, Mack let it gently roll off his fingers as time expired, giving the Golden Eagles a 3-point lead. Jacobs would expand its lead from there, rattling off an 11-0 run to start the third quarter before cruising to a comfortable 58-37 nonconference boys basketball win at Chesbrough Field House in Elgin Saturday.

  • Jacobs handles Huntley as Orange eclipses 1,000 Jan 23, 2015 10:33 PM

The 6-foot-2 Jacobs senior scored on a layup off a feed from Kenton Mack to reach the mark early in the Golden Eagles’ 58-39 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball win against Huntley at the Eagles’ Nest.

  • Jacobs impressive in beating Dundee-Crown Jan 22, 2015 10:06 PM
    Rarely mentioned as a major player during the Fox Valley Conference tournament, the Jacobs wrestling program will likely be in the hunt next weekend when the tournament begins at McHenry High School.

  • Freshmen making their mark in Fox Valley Jan 22, 2015 1:31 PM
    A varsity basketball coach’s decision to play freshmen has its pros and cons. Sometimes a coach’s hand is willfully forced by the sheer athleticism or size of an incoming freshman. For example, anyone in the Fox Valley area who last year witnessed the play of 6-foot-5 Larkin forward Christian Negron, 6-8 Jacobs center Cameron Krutwig or Hampshire 6-3 forward Brennen Woods as freshmen understood those players belonged in their respective lineups from a physical standpoint.

  • Jacobs holds off Cary-Grove Jan 21, 2015 1:26 AM
    The effective zone defense played by the Cary-Grove boys basketball team on Tuesday gave the Trojans a shot to upset visiting Jacobs, but the Golden Eagles made just enough plays down the stretch to escape Elroy Fitzgerald Gymnasium with a 47-43 victory. Trailing by 8 points with five minutes left in the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division game, Cary-Grove (8-1, 1-2) drew within 42-41, thanks to a 9-2 run fueled by a pair of Jason Gregoire 3-pointers and a three-point play by senior forward Nick Barr. But the Trojans never got the “one more” they sought.

  • Jacobs’ Heiss committs to Arkansas Jan 19, 2015 12:18 PM
    Approximately fifty college baseball programs spoke to Lake in the Hills resident Brenden Heiss throughout the recruitment process and five made serious offers, but Arkansas made the right-handed pitcher from Jacobs truly feel wanted, he said. Following a soul-searching meeting Sunday evening with Heiss’ 17-U travel ball coach, Todd Fine of Top Tier, the junior decided there was no point in waiting further. He called Arkansas assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Tony Vitello at 10:30 p.m. and committed to the Razorbacks.
