  • Conant outslugs Schaumburg in a classic May 31, 2014 9:52 PM
    This one lived up to everyone’s expectations. After two close battles during the Mid-Suburban West season with Conant edging Schaumburg by 2 runs each time, Saturday’s encounter between the softball powerhouses figured to be a close again with plenty of action. Sure enough, the bats were flying in a back-and-forth battle that went the Cougars’ way for the third time. The twist and turns finally ended with junior DeeDee Durr’s two-out line drive single to left which scored freshman Lauren Grzelak from second base for the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning. With the tense 9-8 victory, the No. 2 seeded Cougars (25-5) advanced to the Bartlett sectional.

  • Another big step for St. Charles East May 30, 2014 9:10 PM
    The St. Charles East girls soccer team has been on a mission to return the program to the glory days of the past. On Friday, the Saints moved a step closer. Before St. Charles High School became St. Charles East with the opening of the North campus in 2001, state titles in girls soccer were commonplace. The old Saints won eight championships during the 80’s and 90’s. They haven’t really come close since — but times maybe changing. The fourth-seeded Saints captured their first sectional title since 2007 with a 1-0 win over host and second-seeded Conant. East advances to the Class 3A Lake Park supersectional next Tuesday to face Rockford Auburn sectional champ Huntley.

  • Buffalo Grove duo makes the grade May 29, 2014 10:39 PM
    After match point, you had to know something good had just happened when Peter Georgiades practically broke the 100-meter record with his mad dash into the building at Buffalo Grove. The Bison senior couldn’t wait to get inside to tell a teacher that both he and doubles partner Anton Levitin had just stunned favored Thomas Hanley/Wyatt Mayer of New Trier in three sets to earn a spot in today’s round of 16. It’s the first time a player or team from BG has advanced that deeply in the boys tennis state tournament since 2008.

    Laura Engelhardt forgave her killer before she died, her sister, Amanda, testified Wednesday during the first day of the Hoffman Estates triple murder trial.

Still is,” said one friend, wearing a purple ribbon, the color representing domestic violence, with the names “Marlene, Laura and Al” written on it.

  • Conant manufactures a victory May 28, 2014 10:06 PM
    Sure, Conant’s softball team has belted a school-record 49 homers this season. But don’t think for a second that’s the Cougars’ game plan. “They might go over the fence but that’s not our goal,” said Rachel O’Malley who has sent a team-high 11 over the fence this spring. “We’re a small-ball team. Our goal is to get on first base any way we can.” “Sixty feet at a time,” echoed Dream Aaron, the Cougars’ sophomore catcher. “That’s our real motto.” And the No. 2 seeded Cougars lived up to that philosophy in the final inning of their 4-3 victory over No. 15 Lake Park in the Class 4A Hoffman Estate regional semifinal. The game was suspended on Tuesday with the score tied 3-3 in the top of the seventh inning.

  • Conant’s going dancing after beating Geneva May 28, 2014 11:21 PM
    Friday is Prom Night for Conant High School, and the school’s girls soccer players have had a goal for the evening for some time. “One of our main goals was to go into prom with cleats on, leaving right from the game,” Conant junior Leah Celarek said. The Cougars (14-4-2) earned their right to head to the dance creatively-shod thanks to Wednesday’s 3-1 Class 3A Conant sectional semifinal victory over Geneva.

  • Lake Park’s challenge of Conant will wait for resolution May 27, 2014 9:06 PM

The semifinal of the Class 4A Hoffman Estates softball regional was tied at 3-3 in the top of the seventh inning with senior Stephanie Sturino leading off the Lancers. During her at-bat, the lightning detector sounded and the teams left the field. They will return today at 4 p.m. to resume the game.

  • Prospect’s Reese strikes again downstate May 24, 2014 9:52 PM
    Prospect senior Erin Reese proved that lightning does strike twice. After hitting a school-record 150 feet in the discus in early April, Reese settled back into the mid-130s for rest of the season. But on a sun-splashed Saturday at the IHSA Class 3A state finals at Eastern Illinois’ O’Brien Stadium, Reese caught lightning in a bottle for the second time. On her second throw in the finals, Reese unleashed a beauty, hitting 146-01 to propel her to the Class 3A discus title.

It was her 11th of the season, setting the school’s single season mark previously held by Dani Goranson and Megan Keegan. The Grens went on to top the Blazers 13-7 at the Triton College softball diamond.

  • Buffalo Grove, Conant make a nice MSL match May 21, 2014 4:08 PM
    For the past three years, the Conant and Buffalo Grove softball teams played in the Mid-Suburban League championship game. But not against each other. The Cougars defeated Elk Grove in the 2011 and 2012 editions while the Bison lost to Barrington in last year’s renewal. But they did meet once this season. And if their meeting in Thursday's 41st MSL title match in Hoffman Estates is anything similar, it promises to be quite an exciting match. The Bison won on their home field 10-9 on May 2.
