  • Hersey gets it done with win at Rolling Meadows Feb 13, 2015 10:45 PM
    Hersey clinched its spot in the Mid-Suburban League boys basketball championship game and at least a share of its first Mid-Suburban East title since 2005 with a decisive 58-37 decision at Rolling Meadows on Friday night. “There was great leadership, energy and stamina that the players showed tonight,” said Hersey coach Steve Messer. “Our defense was solid in the first half but, in the third quarter it was really good. We boxed out real well and kept them off the boards. I think we picked up most of the 50-50 balls.”

  • Solka helps Prairie Ridge co-op win at Lake Park Feb 12, 2015 11:39 PM
    Prairie Ridge co-op junior Maddie Solka wasn’t even supposed to compete on Thursday night at the Lake Park girls gymnastics sectional. Solka, a Cary-Grove student, had injured her back in practice early in the week and was listed as doubtful for Thursday. But Solka ended up saving the day for the Wolves. Prairie Ridge was down to three gymnasts for the final event, floor exercise. Solka stepped in and gutted out a clutch performance in taking 10th place with a 9.3, propelling the Wolves to their fourth consecutive sectional title with 149.25 points in Roselle. Without Solka, Prairie Ridge would have finished with 139.93 points and missed the state cut. Instead the Wolves joined Geneva, Lyons Township, and Glenbrook South as automatic qualifiers. Fremd (146.25), Barrington (144.275), and Prospect (144.075) finished 2-3-4 at Lake Park and join DeKalb/Sycamore as at-large team qualifiers to state.

  • It’s Prospect, in a Classic Feb 7, 2015 7:45 PM
    Hersey led Prospect for more than 27 of the 32 minutes on Saturday when the two girls basketballs teams played for the Mid-Suburban League East girls basketball championship. In fact, the Huskies led by as many as 12 points (25-13) with under three minutes to play in the first half. But the state-ranked Knights, never a team to panic, were not going to be denied the crown they’d been going after since a freshman by the name of Taylor Will joined the program in the fall 2011. Four years later, Prospect’s all-time leading scorer, Will, and the Knights celebrated their first East crown since 2004 while District 214 celebrated 100 years of education at the Arlington Heights branch of Robert Morris University. With Will scoring a game-high 18 points and her senior teammate Catherine Sherwood getting 13, the Knights rallied for a 47-44 victory over the Huskies at the Forest View Education Center.

  • Standout efforts from Stevenson, Barrington’s Tenyer Feb 7, 2015 7:51 PM
    Stevenson senior Sam Szura, a competitor since her freshman season, called her four seasons of participation in varsity girls bowling “a real trip.” “We started at the bottom and worked our way up, that’s for sure,” said Szura. “That’s why I’m so ecstatic right now. I’m crying.” The tears that Szura and her teammates were shedding Saturday were tears of joy as the Patriots surprised by winning the Palatine Regional at Brunswick Zone in Deer Park. “We expected to advance,” said Szura, “but we never expected to win the regional. I was nervous all day — I’m kind of a worry-wart — but in the end we were able to pull through, and I’m thrilled that we did.” Stevenson’s pinfall of 5,515 was a whopping 120 pins better than second-place Hoffman Estates (5,358), and both teams will advance to Saturday’s sectional tourney hosted by Rolling Meadows. Schaumburg (5,308) and Lake Zurich (5,288) will also move on to the sectional meet to be held at Brunswick in Mount Prospect, while the magical season of Barrington sophomore Sarah Tenyer continued in earnest. Just a week after winning Mid-Suburban League honors, Tenyer won medalist bragging rights at Deer Park with a 6-game total of 1,302 pins, including games of 246 and 235.

  • 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.
