  • Fremd passes Highland Park's test Mar 12, 2014 11:25 PM
    No wonder his next stop is the Ivy League. On a head-scratching night at Lake Zurich, considering he struggled finding the net as much as Highland Park, Fremd senior Riley Glassmann still found a way to help his team pass its Class 4A sectional-semifinal test. “D” sufficed for the “A” student. “Anyone is willing to do whatever it takes to win,” Fremd center Ben Carlson said. For Carlson's Cornell University-bound teammate Glassmann, that meant playing defense and finding his open teammates. Glassmann's team-first approach helped explain how Fremd won 47-26, despite its season-long scoring leader shooting just 1 of 10 from the floor.

  • Sachs’ big game helps Highland Park sink Libertyville Mar 4, 2014 11:14 PM
    It seems ludicrous, but it did come up: Was Highland Park’s David Sachs going to score all his team’s points in the Giants’ matchup at Libertyville? Sachs opened up this regional semifinal with back-to-back 3-pointers. And with less than three minutes to play in the first quarter, the scoreboard could have read: Sachs 10, Libertyville 7. Sachs didn’t really slow down that much. The junior scored a career-high 30 points as the Giants (21-7) eliminated Libertyville 60-50 on Tuesday night. The Giants will meet Lake Forest for the regional crown Friday night. The Scouts ended Barrington’s season 62-49 in the first game of the night.

  • Thanks to Penny, Lake Zurich banks a victory Feb 15, 2014 10:11 PM
    It’s not all that uncommon to see a sophomore contributing on the varsity level. Even in the final minutes of a tight game, underclassmen are making plays all the time. So when Lake Zurich sophomore Nick Penny came up with 3 huge free throws in overtime of Saturday night’s nonconference contest with visiting Highland Park, no one was surprised. Well, no one on the Lake Zurich side, at least. “He is the type of player that if you take a minute off in practice he is going to beat you,” said LZ senior Brad Kruse. “He works hard every day and he pushes everyone to get better.”

     
  • Highland Park edges Libertyville at Bradley Center Feb 8, 2014 10:13 PM
    For Matt Reed and the rest of Libertyville’s boys basketball team, the chance to play on an NBA basketball court was not to be taken lightly. So the Wildcats were savoring their chance to play in the Bradley Center on Saturday afternoon, home to the Milwaukee Bucks. Reed in particular had his sights set on attempting an NBA-range 3-pointer. He managed to hit a couple of them and finished with a game-high 12 points. The dream ended there, however, as Highland Park got past Libertyville 41-40 in nonconference play.

    Steve and Marla Brown are excited to watch their figure-skating son Jason compete in the Winter Olympics. But they weren't content to watch the Sochi Games at home. The Highland Park residents — and 16 relatives — are making an estimated 15-hour journey to Russia to watch him compete live. “We're still just so in shock,” Marla Brown said. “It's hard to believe we're really going to the Olympics to watch our son compete and represent our country.”

     
  • LoGrande’s giant effort helps HP past Wheeling Jan 14, 2014 11:50 PM
    Highland Park senior Lizzy LoGrande said the Giants weren’t too happy about their start on Monday night in a 49-37 loss to Maine East. “We didn’t want to feel like that again,” said the 5-foot-7 guard. “So we all came out with a lot of energy.” The energized Giants led 25-21 at intermission and extended the lead to as many as 15 points late in the fourth quarter before registering a 55-46 triumph over visiting Wheeling in the nonconference girls basketball game. LoGrande scored a 14 points while classmate Lucy Hoffman tossed in a career-high 17 as the Giants improved to 6-11.

  • Highland Park edges Prospect in OT Nov 26, 2013 9:52 PM
    There aren’t many plays drawn up to go the length of the court, down a point, with 7.1 seconds on the clock, and counting. But that’s exactly what Highland Park did. The Giants (1-0) rebounded a missed free throw and moved the ball upcourt quickly. Guard David Sachs took a pass as time wound down and drained a basket from just inside the 3-point arc with 1 second on the clock to give the Giants a season-opening 54-53 overtime victory over Prospect in the Joe Majkowski Thanksgiving Basketball Tournament in St. Viator’s Cahill Gym Tuesday.

     
  • Mahar helps Mundelein past Munzer-less Giants Nov 20, 2013 11:10 PM
    For the first time in four seasons, the Highland Park Giants didn’t travel with a star named Lena Munzer. Perhaps the best girls basketball player in Highland Park history, Munzer graduated last spring. So you’d figure host Mundelein would handl this Munzer-less club with no problem on Wednesday night in the the third contest of the day in Mundelein’s tournament. Well, not quite. It was still anyone’s game midway through the third quarter. Mundelein’s lead was 28-24. And then the veteran in Mundelein’s lineup, junior Maggie Mahar, took matters into her own hands.
