  • Former all-area standouts making their mark as coaches Nov 21, 2013 9:50 PM
    One of the coolest things about covering girls basketball in the Fox Valley for as long as I have is being able to watch former standout players return to the game as coaches. So, walking into Elgin Academy’s quaint gymnasium Thursday afternoon to watch the Hampshire vs. Kirkland Hiawatha game, I knew I was going to see one former Daily Herald All-Area honorary captain coaching. But the look on my face when I saw a second former all-area captain running a team had to have been priceless. Former Hampshire standout Jackie Heine was the one I knew I’d see. After a stellar career at Saint Xavier University and then four years as a graduate assistant coach for the Cougars, Heine is back home and is first-year Whip-Purs’ coach Mike Featherly’s assistant. That much I knew, and I arrived early enough to catch Jackie grading math papers in the bleachers, so we were able to chat and catch up. While doing so, she pointed over to the Kirkland Hiawatha bench where the Hawks’ head coach had her back turned to us. “Is that Jenna Real?” Jackie asked me. Startled, my response was a dumbfounded, “huh?”

  • Despite another loss, Westminster Christian encouraged Sep 21, 2013 6:49 PM
    Searching for its first victory as a varsity football program, Westminster Christian received a shot of adrenaline right before halftime Saturday after DeShawn Bloom's 4-yard touchdown run sliced Hiawatha's lead to 14-13. “They're a first-year program looking for their first victory,” said Hiawatha coach Sean Donnelly. “My biggest fear was that if we kept them in the game bad things happen.” Unfortunately for the Warriors (0-4, 0-4), most of the bad things that happened in the second half went against them. Hiawatha (3-1, 3-1) scored touchdowns on its first 3 offensive possessions of the second half and pulled away for a 40-27 Northeastern Athletic Conference triumph in Elgin.
