  • Hughes, Warren able to knock off Lake Zurich Jan 27, 2015 11:22 PM
    Welcome to the rough-and-tough world of girls basketball, Jordyn Hughes. Yes, the Warren freshman looks like a player to keep an eye on. “Against Zion, I hit my head on the floor,” said Hughes, who was out two weeks with a concussion. On Tuesday night at Lake Zurich, Hughes shook of the cob webs and scored her team’s first 10 points of the game. Still, it was anyone’s game at halftime as Warren held a 22-19 lead. Hughes finished with a game-high 18 points and 3 steals, and the Blue Devils held the Bears to just 7 second-half points in a 46-26 North Suburban Lake Division romp.

  • Poetker powers Stevenson downstate Jan 24, 2015 10:40 PM
    Only a 6-pin denied Matt Poetker perfection. The Stevenson bowler settled for a 299 in his fourth game Saturday as part of the Stevenson sectional at Lakeside Lanes in Mundelein on Saturday. After he rolled his final ball, he couldn’t even watch it spin down the lane. “It was something to experience,” said Poetker, who had a 300 game two years ago, but not in high school competition. “It really gave the team the push it needed. I got really nervous on the last shot. The ball stuck on the thumb. Whatever happened, happened at that point. I really didn’t look. I had my eyes closed.” Stevenson had highlights other than Poetker’s 299 game, as the Patriots qualified for state for the first time along with five other teams. Harlem won the sectional with one of the best 6-game pinfalls (6,552) in the state. Rockton Hononegah was a close second (6,537). Stevenson took third place (6,215), followed by St. Charles East (6,027), Lake Zurich (5,983) and Freeport (5,960) in the 16-team field. All six teams will compete in the state tournament beginning Friday at St. Clair Lanes in downstate O’Fallon.

  • Lake Forest survives Lake Zurich’s best shot Jan 24, 2015 9:30 PM
    Lake Zurich focused on its target and chucked Spears. At Evan Boudreaux. “Tim did a good job tonight,” Lake Zurich guard Mike Travlos said of teammate Tim Spears. In an attempt to at least slow down the Dartmouth-bound Boudreaux and Lake Forest’s once-beaten boys basketball team, Lake Zurich started Spears, a 6-foot-1, broad-shouldered junior. Spears did his best, but Boudreaux was his usual tough self in the end, as visiting Lake Forest pulled out a 52-49 victory in a North Suburban Lake Division thriller Friday night.

  • Stevenson gets a humbling national-level reminder Jan 22, 2015 9:47 PM
    Top-ranked Stevenson is still unbeaten. In Illinois, that is. The only two losses for the state’s best team have come at the hands of top-notch, out-of-state competition, teams that are ranked nationally. Just like the Patriots (16-2). Stevenson’s most-recent loss, and its most lopsided loss of the Jalen Brunson era, was last weekend in the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. The Patriots lost to Findlay College Prep out of Nevada, 84-58. Findlay College Prep is the No. 1-ranked team in the USA Today Top 25 national high school poll.

  • Images: Lake Zurich vs. Vernon Hills, boys basketball Jan 19, 2015 8:42 PM

  • Lake Zurich handles Vernon Hills Jan 19, 2015 11:06 PM
    On Monday in the championship game of the Lake Zurich Martin Luther King tournament, the Bears' Jack O’Neill and Mike Travlos made it their mission to make life as difficult as possible for Vernon Hills standout guard Robby Nardini. And they succeeded. They took turns closely face-guarding the high-scoring Cougars 3-point sharpshooter, who wound up being named the most valuable player of the tournament. They held him to just 2 points and zero field goals, the first time he’s been held without a field goal in his varsity career. That was key in Lake Zurich’s 71-54 victory over the Cougars. Lake Zurich, Vernon Hills, Palatine and Niles North all finished the tournament at 4-1, but Lake Zurich won the tie-breaker and thus the tournament title on point differential in its victory over Vernon Hills.

  • Lake Zurich reverts to form, tops Elgin Jan 19, 2015 2:25 PM

  • Lake Zurich outduels Grayslake North at Palatine Jan 17, 2015 6:00 PM
    They saved the best wrestling meet for last Saturday at the Palatine megaduals. Trailing Grayslake North 25-9 with six matches to go, Lake Zurich made a dramatic late comeback to capture an exciting 32-28 nonconference victory over the Knights and cap off a 3-0 day. The Bears (15-6) opened the day with a lopsided 54-15 victory over West Chicago (13-14), before posting a similar 57-18 win over short-handed St. Charles North (3-12) in the second round. Despite also being at less than full strength, Carmel (6-13) managed to go 2-1 on the day, as the Corsairs fell to Grayslake North (12-9) 48-24, before beating West Chicago 35-30 and nipping St. Charles North 27-26 on a forfeit victory in the last match.

  • Palatine presses past Lake Zurich Jan 17, 2015 11:27 PM
    It was written right on the scouting report. So it really wasn’t a surprise what the Palatine boys basketball team was of able to do to host Lake Zurich on Saturday night at the Martin Luther King tournament. “We knew they were never out of it,” Lake Zurich coach Billy Pitcher said of Palatine. “I put that in the scouting report. We talked about their Barrington game. Our guys knew all about it.” Palatine has made a habit this season of cutting down big deficits. In a game against Barrington, the Pirates slashed a 36-point deficit to 4 points but weren’t quite able to get over the hump. Over the holidays, they were able to complete the job, erasing a 13-point deficit to defeat Oswego. This time, they were down by as many as 11 points to Lake Zurich in the second half. Thanks to a pressure defense that forced 9 Lake Zurich turnovers in the fourth quarter alone, Palatine added another comeback victory to its resume, 65-60 over Lake Zurich.

  • Grayslake North takes aim against Washington foes Jan 15, 2015 10:47 PM
    Although there’s no scientific data as proof, there does seem to be anecdotal evidence that high school basketball in each area of Illinois is styled a bit differently. Just ask the Grayslake North boys basketball team. The Knights are preparing to return to downstate Washington High School this weekend as part of the annual Martin Luther King tournament there that they participated in last year. They are ready for what they weren’t quite ready for last time. “We couldn’t believe the shooting we saw there,” Grayslake North coach Todd Grunloh said. “It’s not like it is up here. Literally any kid who checks into the game down there can shoot from two to three feet outside the 3-point line and with great form."

  • Daleske guides Lake Zurich past Maine West Jan 13, 2015 11:00 PM
    Lake Zurich senior forward Elly Daleske called it about a one-hour drive for her girls basketball team to arrive at Maine West High School for Tuesday’s nonconference girls basketball game. Once in Des Plaines, it was Daleske’s turn to drive — to the basket. And she made it pay off by getting fouled and sinking 6-of-7 free throws en route to a team-high 12 points which helped the Bears to a 46-36 victory over the host Warriors.

  • Fremd’s Invitational quite a showcase for MSL talent Jan 11, 2015 11:04 PM

  • Fine finish pleases Lake Zurich Jan 10, 2015 11:31 PM

With the score tied 34-34 midway through the fourth quarter, Lake Zurich scored 12 unanswered points to finish the game. In the final 13 minutes of the game, the visitors held the Mustangs to just 4 points. “We know that when we can play defense, we win games,” said Bennett, whose Bears improved to 7-8 overall and 3-2 in the NSC Lake. “We did a great job on defense the last quarter and a half.”

    A season on the upswing continued in that direction on Saturday for Stevenson’s boys bowling team.
