  • Hampshire is playoff bound Oct 18, 2013 10:29 PM
    Hampshire football coach Dan Cavanaugh thought his team would have been on the playoff bubble with only five wins. There is no reason for the Whip-Purs to sweat out next weekend’s playoff selections any more after Friday night. The Whip-Purs dominated Johnsburg 42-7 in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division play to earn their sixth victory and guarantee a playoff berth for the first time since 2008.

  • Heart-felt effort lifts Grayslake North Sep 20, 2013 11:55 PM
    After rolling up 143 points over its first three games, Grayslake North was looking for more of the same going into Friday night’s Fox Valley Conference Fox Division matchup at Johnsburg. Instead, the Knights ran into a very prepared Skyhawks defense that held them scoreless in the first half. Fortunately for the Knights (4-0, 2-0 in Fox Division), they found their offensive rhythm on their last two drives and rallied past Johnsburg for a thrilling 21-13 victory.

  • Grayslake Central still unbeaten Sep 12, 2013 11:45 PM
    Grayslake Central senior Kacey Adams plays on both sides of the ball for the Rams. And after watching his team take a 28-7 lead to the fourth quarter at home on Thursday night, Adams figured his chances of being a hero of this game was null. Adams intercepted not one but two Johnsburg passes in the final 90 seconds of this Fox Valley Conference Fox Division game. The winless Skyhawks put a scare into the Rams in the final quarter. However, surprising Central stayed unbeaten with a 28-21 win at home.

  • Hampshire hoping to make some noise in FVC Fox Aug 26, 2013 9:31 PM
    If defense wins games Hampshire’s football team should be feeling rather good about itself. Whip-Purs coach Dan Cavanaugh, the dean of Fox Valley area football coaches in his 25th season, likes the makeup of his defense, which returns plenty of talent and experience up front in Leighton Sheetz (6-0, 275, DT), Mike Gibas (6-2, 240), Matt Kielbasa (6-2, 250, DE) and Steve Kirkwood (5-10, 185, DE). Inside linebackers Brandan Swanson (6-0, 170) and Ben Bednarek (5-10, 210) also are back.

  • FVC Valley wide open, but don’t count out Cary-Grove Aug 26, 2013 8:21 PM
    It’s probably not a good idea to sell the Cary-Grove football team short. Despite graduating a large portion of last year’s team that reached the Class 6A state title game, third-year coach Brad Seaburg is far from waving a white flag for the defending Fox Valley Conference Valley Division champions. “We have the athleticism and we’re starting to see some leadership emerging,” he said of his junior-heavy lineup. “On paper and after seeing what we’ve seen in practice with our enthusiasm, effort and execution so far, we feel like we should be able to compete for a conference championship, for sure.”

  • Zazas, Mundelein celebrate MBSA Day with sweep Apr 20, 2013 8:23 PM
    The future Maddie Zazases watched the real Maddie Zazas zip around bases and play impeccable shortstop Saturday. Those Mundelein Baseball Softball Association girls are not that much younger than Zazas, in truth. They’ll be playing varsity before too long. “Someday,” a smiling Zazas said. “Someday. It’ll happen.” If the many little girls who watched Mundelein sweep Johnsburg in a nonconference doubleheader possess the same softball savvy as the 16-year-old Zazas, the future of Mustangs softball is bright. Mundelein celebrated its second annual MBSA Day by capturing the opening game 5-2 and then taking the second 14-4 on JV call-up Amanda Diaz’s walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the sixth.

  • Carmel keeps regional title hope alive Feb 27, 2013 11:37 PM
    The number 13 certainly was a number that came up a few times on Wednesday night in Norridge. In this case, it sure seemed lucky. Carmel Catholic’s boys basketball team is in pursuit of history. The last time the Corsairs won a regional final was 21 years ago. But Carmel has a shot at a regional championship this season, as the sixth-seeded Corsairs bounced No. 11 Johnsburg 57-41 in a Class 3A Ridgewood regional semifinal on Wednesday night.

  • Cullen still unbeaten; Cary-Grove 2nd in FVC Jan 26, 2013 9:12 PM
    It was clear going into Saturday's Fox Valley Conference finals that Crystal Lake Central's five-year reign as the league wrestling champion was over. The question was, would Cary-Grove's navy and white or McHenry's black and orange be the new colors of FVC wrestling royalty. McHenry's lead wasn't safe up only 10 points after Friday's prelims but sending 13 of 14 into the semifinals to Cary-Grove's 10 didn't seem to make the Warriors nervous. The Trojans closed in early with first place wins in 2 of the first 3 matches and watched three wrestlers earn titles, but McHenry grew stronger in the heavier classes and garnered 3 first-place winners, 3 second-place winners and 4 third-place medals to grab the overall championship over Cary-Grove, 261.50-210.

The top two clubs in the Valley division are separated by 10 points (90-80) when action resumes today at 9 a.m., while Crystal Lake South stands third overall with 68 points, followed closely by Huntley which is one point behind the Gators in fourth.

  • Johnsburg shoots down Grayslake C. Jan 19, 2013 10:49 PM
    Five seniors started for Grayslake Central on Saturday night against visiting Johnsburg on Senior Night, including guard Danny Reed, who poured in a game-high 20 points. “It was heartwarming to see all the seniors and their parents on the gym floor before the game tonight,” said Reed, who knocked down 2 of his team’s trio of 3-pointers and connected on all 6 of his free throws. “It was a nice experience.” What wasn’t so nice for the Rams was the ability of Johnsburg to nullify the home team’s zone defense with 8 3-pointers in a 67-56 Fox Valley Fox Division game.

  • Poms teams compete for sectional title in Palatine Jan 24, 2013 10:08 PM
    Poms teams across the state took their activity to a new level on Saturday, when they participated in the first round of the state series in competitive dance, sanctioned by the Illinois High School Association. "We had our fingers crossed, since we didn't know what the judges would be looking for," said Sue Kawecki, coach of the Maine East Demon Squad, that also advanced at the Palatine sectional, with a kick routine.
