  • Wrenn, Hersey find their form in Prospect Invitational Jan 10, 2015 8:25 PM
    Hersey sophomore Emma Wrenn says she’s “not too sure” if she likes the Baker format of Saturday’s 26th annual Prospect New Year Invitational. After bowling four standard games at Brunswick Zone in Mount Prospect, the competitors switch to the Baker in the afternoon, which is a team-oriented concept in which each of five bowlers on every team roll two frames apiece through five more games. Either way, like it or not, Wrenn and her Huskies teammates excelled in each. Wrenn finished with the top series of any Mid-Suburban League player, an 890, good for fifth place in a tourney that traditionally attracts the best teams in the state. The sophomore rolled games of 247, 239, 245 and 200 in a meet that was won by Lockport Maroon with a total morning and afternoon pinfall of 6,157. Waubonsie Valley finished second, just 10 pins back, while Hersey led MSL teams in an eighth-place finish with a total of 5,521.

  • Conant shows defensive prowess Dec 26, 2014 11:12 PM
    How often do you hear defense wins games?

Talk about playing defense. The Cougars limited the Ramblers to 7 or fewer points in each quarter — including 3 in the first and 2 in the third — and posted a 28-18 triumph. Conant (10-2) will face Vernon Hills (12-3) for the championship of the tourney at 8 p.m. Saturday.

  • Conant surges past Libertyville Dec 23, 2014 7:18 PM
    On paper, this looked like a good one. Twice-beaten in 9 games came the Conant Cougars. With 10 wins already were the Libertyville Wildcats. But late in the second quarter, the scoreboard at the Mundelein High School Holiday Classic read: Conant 23, Libertyville 4.How could that be? And just as the game looked to be over but for the shouting, the Wildcats went on a 15-0 run. And just like that it was clearly anyone’s game. Both clubs had runaway victories on Monday night, but now only Conant stands unbeaten in the tournament. The Cougars (8-2) absorbed Libertyville’s comeback blow on Tuesday night and posted a decisive 45-31 win.

  • Anderson, Conant measuring up Dec 19, 2014 11:31 PM
    Haley Anderson is one of the best inside scorers in the Mid-Suburban League. “I love getting the ball inside,” the 6-foot senior center said. “After a few conversions inside, then that can set up someone to be open outside where they can convert from the behind the arc.” That proved to be the perfect method in the Cougars’ 58-25 victory over visiting Hoffman Estates in the Mid-Suburban West contest on Friday night.
