  • Winning night for Huntley’s seniors Jan 22, 2015 10:33 PM
    It was a night of mixed emotions for Huntley senior 152-pounder Brandon Meyer.

Meyer’s effort propelled the Red Raiders to a 45-22 win over the visiting Gators in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division action in Huntley Thursday.

  • Mundelein edges improving Vernon Hills Jan 22, 2015 10:14 PM
    Upon entering the Vernon Hills High School pool Thursday night, you couldn’t help sense that something big was possibly going to transpire. And, depending on your angle, it almost did. Since opening its doors in 2002, the Vernon Hills varsity boys swimming team has never beaten Mundelein. That didn’t change Thursday, but the results suggest it might in the near future. The meet was close throughout, and with Mundelein ahead 88-84, it came down to the last event for all the marbles. Mustangs junior Will Garcia had an inkling that things were tight. “Our team goals always come first,” said Garcia, who swam the second leg of the winning 400 freestyle relay team that won that last event and clinched the victory for Mundelein. “We just told ourselves we need to win this one to win the meet and to forget about all of the other races.” The formula worked because Garcia joined Eric Kozokar, Jeremy Westgate and Duncan Black, who posted a winning time of 3:27.59. Garcia, known for his long-distance success, also won the 200-freestyle in 1:54.03, and followed that up with a victory in the 500 freestyle in 5:06.29.
