  • Engelbreit, Conant measure up against Elk Grove Feb 17, 2015 9:49 PM
    One statistic by Conant’s Dani Engelbreit symbolized the character of this year’s Cougars girls basketball team. Engelbreit had a team-high 6 rebounds in the Cougars’ 56-34 win over Elk Grove in the semifinal of the Class 4A Addison Trail regional. The 6 rebounds may not seem all that significant until you realize Engelbreit was one of the smallest players on the floor as a 5-foot-4 senior guard.

  • Messer eager for a return engagement at Forest View Feb 5, 2015 4:07 PM
    Hersey boys basketball coach Steve Messer has fond memories of the last time he was on the court at the old Forest View High School in 1985. Messer was senior at Hersey then. His Huskies had defeated Prospect in the sectional final in what was to be the last high school basketball game ever played at Forest View. The school closed later that year. “It all got started there,” Messer said. “Forest View was a great place to play and it was always the place they held the sectionals.” It will be the place again this Saturday, when District 214 wraps up the celebration of its Centennial with a full day high school basketball. All six schools in Dist. 214 will compete Saturday, with both the varisty girls and boys teams playing, with games beginning at 10:30 a.m. and the final game tipping off at 7:15 p.m.
