  • Girls bowling: Another first for NSC champ Lake Zurich Jan 30, 2015 11:01 PM
    A couple of seasons ago, Lake Zurich’s girls bowling won a sectional for the first time. The history-minded Bears followed that theme on Friday in claiming the program’s first-ever North Suburban Conference title at Sunset Lanes in Waukegan. The Bears posted the day’s best game of 1,052 and nearly broke 1,000 in a few others. Lake Zurich rolled 5,593 pins in capturing first place over 6 games. Warren was the runner-up at 5,498 and Stevenson took third at 5,431 in the 12-team field.

  • Lakes taking visual approach to game-readiness Jan 29, 2015 11:12 PM
    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Videos work nicely, too. Instead of just telling all his seniors to play like they’re savoring every last moment of this dwindling basketball season, Lakes coach Chris Snyder decided to show them how others have done so. “We’ve been watching some inspirational movies, like ‘Hoop Dreams,’” Snyder said. “I liked it when we got to the part about William Gates’ last game. I wanted to give our seniors a sense of the season being over and what that feels like and just how you have to play like you’re cherishing every moment, because it will be over soon.”

  • 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.

     
  • Libertyville looms large, handles Lake Zurich Jan 24, 2015 10:42 PM
    With three 6-footers in its revamped starting lineup, Libertyville boasts one of the tallest girls basketball teams in the North Suburban Conference. On Saturday, the Wildcats took advantage of their height advantage against host Lake Zurich and pulled away for a 34-26 NSC Lake Division victory. “They have nice height,” Lake Zurich coach Chris Bennett said of Libertyville. “And it caused us trouble.”

     
  • 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.

     
  • Girls basketball / Lake County roundup Jan 24, 2015 12:04 AM

  • 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.

  • 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.
