  • Heeren assists Hersey in decisive win Jan 29, 2015 10:29 PM

We were able to get the second layer of offense open.” Heeren did not put a point on the board for the better part of three quarters and finished with 7 points. But he dished out 10 assists in Hersey’s 65-38 decision over visiting Buffalo Grove.

Consider Hersey and coach Dick Mortensen quite relieved.

  • Heady play helps Weyhrich, Hersey past Wheeling Jan 17, 2015 12:41 AM

While dribbling late in the final quarter, the sophomore’s white headband slipped down and was around her neck, resulting in an official to stop the action. Once Weyhrich put the headband back in place, she completed a heads-up game — her finest in high school — which helped the Huskies post a 61-45 girls basketball triumph at Wheeling in the Mid-Suburban East contest. Weyhrich scored a career- and team-high 15 points (with two 3-pointers) and had 8 assists as Hersey improved to 14-5 and 4-1 in the MSL East, one game behind state-ranked Prospect (17-1, 5-0).
