    Fate frowns on Lakes as Harvard advancesFeb 25, 2014 12:00 AM
    Lakes can chalk this one up to the “it just wasn’t meant to be” category as the Eagles met Harvard in the Class 2A Antioch dual team wrestling sectional Tuesday night. Starting the meet at 132 pounds, the Hornets jumped out to a commanding 33-9 lead after eight matches on the way to a 57-12 victory over Lakes. With the outcome decided, the Eagles chose to forfeit the last four bouts, which certainly wasn’t their game plan headed into the meet. Harvard (22-5) advanced to the Elite Eight quarterfinals at 11 a.m. Saturday against Oak Forest at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington. After winning its first regional in school history, Lakes closed out the 2013-14 season with an 18-7 record.

Thirteen of the Rockets’ 25 field goals were assisted in a 60-47 Big Northern East victory over the Hornets. “That’s our team,” Central coach Brett Porto said of the we-first mentality. “When the ball touches multiple people’s hands on a possession, we usually get a great shot."

    Burlington C. has tough competition in Big Northern East Aug 28, 2013 12:00 AM
    Opportunities abound for the Burlington Central football team. Third-year coach Rich Crabel has plenty of options at his disposal, particularly on offense where he said between 6-10 running backs and receivers, six different tight ends and four different fullbacks could play on any given night. That’s just on offense. Crabel added six to eight defensive linemen and between eight and 10 cornerbacks could see action. Central is coming off a 2012 season where it went 5-4 and 4-2 in Big Northern Conference East Division play. The Rockets were playoff-eligible, but missed on points.

  • Burlington Central makes it 3 straight Dec 21, 2012 12:00 AM
    Burlington Central's Moter Deng looked for a dunk whenever he had the opportunity Friday night. Instead, he watched 6-foot 9 Duncan Ozburn, who woke up not thinking about slamming his first one of season home, put the hammer down. "I wanted it so bad, and then I missed it," said Deng, who had a chance in the third quarter to stick a two-handed slam but only came up with iron on a whistled call. But when Ozburn completed the right-handed stuff during Burlington's 59-38 Big Northern East boys basketball win over Harvard on Rocket HIll for Central's third-straight victory, it was part of a 14-4 run for the Rockets (3-7, 3-0) during the fourth quarter where they distanced themselves from the one pass, one dribble sequences that had been a habit during the previous quarters.

Breeden seemingly shrugged and took off up the left sideline. Ninety-two yards later, Breeden was in the end zone and Burlington Central had a 14-3 lead against Harvard. The Rockets held on to win, 21-9, in Big Northern East Friday action at Dan Horne Field.

     
  • Big Northern East still goes through Richmond Aug 23, 2012 12:00 AM
    When is a question more like an answer? When the question pertains to Richmond-Burton's ability to reload and still challenge for the Big Northern Conference's East Division title. Entering last season it seemed as though the Rockets' run of back-to-back division titles was in jeopardy. They opened the campaign with new players at 17 of 22 positions following an 11-1 finish in 2010. They were vulnerable, right?
