  • Grayslake Central’s bench comes up big Jan 31, 2014 11:17 PM

  • Impressive victory for Lakes Dec 27, 2013 12:16 AM
    There’s an old adage in basketball that a team that presses doesn’t like to be pressed. It’s kind of like getting a dose of your own medicine, and not liking it so much. Lakes put that theory to the test Thursday night against Johnsburg at the Jacobs holiday tournament, and now fully endorses it. The Eagles watched some earlier tournament games and saw Johnsburg pressing its way to offensive explosions that hit 80-plus points. But when Lakes turned the tables and hit Johnsburg with some pressure, Johnsburg seemed stymied, and Lakes wound up coasting to a 65-51 victory.

Antioch (2-3) snapped a three-game losing streak. “He’s showing great potential, great skill,” said Antioch point guard A.J. Marsiglio, who scored a game-high 19 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, as he continued his strong start to the season. “He’s going to keep getting better. Expect a lot of good things out of him this year.”

  • 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.

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.”
