  • Hersey gets going against Buffalo Grove Jan 10, 2015 10:24 PM
    Saturday matinees haven’t exactly been show stoppers for Hersey’ girls basketball team. So the Huskies set their alarm clocks a littler earlier for a pregame rehearsal. The minor twist in plot seemed to be the right ticket as the Huskies pulled out a key 56-48 Mid-Suburban East triumph on their own Ken Carter stage over visiting Buffalo Grove.

  • Girls basketball / Northwest roundup Dec 27, 2014 12:38 AM
    Hersey coach Mary Fendley could not recall in her 16 seasons losing two prominent players to injury (senior captains Annie Korff and Juliette Vainisi) during the same week. First, Vainisi suffered a dislocated elbow at practice and then Korff went out of Friday’s Wheaton North tournament game early in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury ankle. The young Huskies still got the result they were after, a 47-39 victory over Glenbard South.

  • Hinsdale Central humbles Hersey Dec 23, 2014 9:55 PM
    Hinsdale Central’s girls basketball team, seeded No. 7, sure has the right attitude for the 31st annual Bill Neibch Falcon Holiday Girls Basketball Classic at Wheaton North. “Last year we were the No. 6 seed and made it to the championship game,” said fifth-year coach Red Devils coach Tom McKenna, who also spent several years steering the St. Ignatius girls program. “So why not as the No. 7 seed.” Why not? The girls from Hinsdale sure looked like they were headed in the right direction in Tuesday’s quarterfinals of the 16-team event. Led by 5-foot-10 senior Gabrielle Rush’s 29 points, the Red Devils scored a 72-58 victory over No. 2 seeded Hersey, the same team they lost to in the title game a year ago.

  • Fremd wins divisional title in Arizona Dec 23, 2014 12:12 AM

  • Hersey picks up the pace Dec 19, 2014 11:40 PM
    If Hersey’s bounce-back performance against Rolling Meadows Friday is an indication of the team’s direction, then the Huskies are ahead of schedule. “Usually, we fall flat at Pekin and then get it together the rest of the season,” Hersey coach Steve Messer said after his team’s 75-64 Mid-Suburban East boys basketball victory in Ken Carter Gym. “We fell flat against Fremd and got it together tonight, so maybe we’re ahead of the curve.” There’s no doubt that this was the Huskies best offensive performance of the season, topping their previous high of 70 against Robeson and prepping the team for the Pekin tournament after Christmas.

  • Hersey handles Rolling Meadows Dec 19, 2014 10:48 PM
    Hersey had a lot to overcome in Friday’s 55-46 Mid-Suburban East victory at Rolling Meadows. Not the least of which was a whistle-fest in the first quarter, a period in which 18 personal fouls were called. Both teams were in the bonus with just four minutes gone in the stanza, something both squads said they had never seen before. “It was a first, that’s for sure,” said Hersey junior Maddie Berigan. “The refs were calling it close, which is a good thing.”

  • Williams, Petro spar in elite butterfly matchup Dec 18, 2014 10:58 PM
    In Round 1 of the Colin Williams-Michael Petro 100-yard butterfly showdown, give seniority the edge. Williams, an Elk Grove senior, won what is likely the first of three head-to-head matchups between two of the Mid-Suburban League’s top competitors — and perhaps the state’s — in the event on Thursday in a dual hosted by Hersey at Olympic Pool in Arlington Heights. The two were about even at the halfway point, with Williams touching in 24.65 and Petro in 24.71. But Williams had the stronger second half, finishing in 52.27 to Petro’s 53.26.
