  • Lake Zurich bounces stubborn Schaumburg Mar 3, 2015 9:58 PM
    Saying the final 1:54 of the Class 4A boys basketball regional semifinal at Wheeling on Tuesday night was wild would be putting it mildly. Anything that a high school sports fan could want happened in the final two minutes. When it was all said and done, No. 4 sectional seed Lake Zurich escaped with a 44-41 win over No. 13 Schaumburg to advance to Friday night’s finale against St. Viator, which advanced with a 49-48 win against Prospect.

  • Mundelein finding ways to enjoy the struggle Feb 19, 2015 9:55 PM
    Staying upbeat during a 2-25 season isn’t easy. So Mundelein coach Corey Knigge has gone out of his way to make sure his players are having some fun off the court. “We’ve had two rough seasons in a row,” said Knigge, referring to last year’s 2-28 campaign and the 0-11 mark in North Suburban Conference play this is part of this year’s two-win season. “We want the kids, especially our seniors, to have some good memories of this season.” On Wednesday, Knigge took his team down to Loyola University to a men’s game against Northern Iowa, which features former Mundelein standout Robert Knar. Last week, the Mustangs made their first trip to Loyola, to watch another former Mundelein star, Sean O’Brien, a sophomore at Southern Illinois.

  • McClaughry and Co. help Lake Zurich get win No. 20 Feb 14, 2015 10:23 PM
    It’s hard to be sneaky when you stand 6 feet 7, but that’s exactly the way that Lake Zurich senior Will McClaughry hurt host Highland Park Saturday night in a nonconference contest. McClaughry sneaked by the Giants’ stingy defense when he drained a long 3-pointer in the first half. He finished with a team-best 14 points as the Bears hung on for a 49-46 win. Lake Zurich (20-8) won its 20th game in a season for the first time since 2005.

     
  • Grayslake North pins down state berth Feb 14, 2015 11:03 PM
    Four pins. That’s what denied Grayslake North’s girls bowling team a trip to state last year. It weighed heavily on the minds of the Knights, who got their shot at redemption Saturday. And this time they didn’t let opportunity slip away. The Knights secured a spot at Cherry Bowl in Rockford next weekend by finishing third in the Rolling Meadows sectional at Brunswick Zone Mt. Prospect. Grayslake North totaled 5,731 pins, while Schaumburg was the sectional champion with a 5,841 total. Runner-up Hersey (5,758) and Hoffman Estates (5,710) also qualified for state.

  • Collegians have high hopes in Midtown’s ITA Feb 12, 2015 11:06 PM
    In a tennis facility where the ceiling stretches nearly the length of a five-story building, the sky seems the limit. And Blake Bazarnik embraces high expectations. “Hopefully we can get a title here. That’s what we’re going for,” said Bazarnik, the 2009 IHSA state singles champion for Stevenson. A senior at the University of Illinois, Bazarnik and his Illini teammates compete this weekend in the ITA national men’s tennis team indoor championships at the Midtown Athletic Club in Chicago.

  • Basketball mourns coaching losses, but their lessons will endure Feb 12, 2015 5:41 PM

  • Mundelein’s Kehr comes through, wins parallel bars Feb 9, 2015 11:14 PM
    McKenzie Kehr had a painful memory from a year ago, one that spoiled her chance at a spot in the state meet. The Mundelein senior wasn’t going to let history repeat in Monday night’s Mundelein girls gymnastics sectional. So, Kehr, as the final performer on the uneven parallel bars, chalked up the best routine of the meet, a 9.45 that qualified her to the state meet at Palatine on Feb. 20. “I really didn’t want a repeat of last year,” Kehr said. “I just gave it my all. I actually tore my fingernail off in the middle of it and kind of stopped. This time, I was luckier. I was just pumped up with the team and wanted to make it there (to state), with the team.” Kehr was the runner-up in the all-around at 37.325 in addition to taking second on vault (9.55) and fifth on beam (8.925). As a team, Mundelein will have to wait and see if it will quality to state with an at-large berth, as the Mustangs finished behind sectional champion Glenbrook South (142.625). Mundelein (141.325) was second and Carmel Catholic third (141.125).

  • Standout efforts from Stevenson, Barrington’s Tenyer Feb 7, 2015 7:51 PM
    Stevenson senior Sam Szura, a competitor since her freshman season, called her four seasons of participation in varsity girls bowling “a real trip.” “We started at the bottom and worked our way up, that’s for sure,” said Szura. “That’s why I’m so ecstatic right now. I’m crying.” The tears that Szura and her teammates were shedding Saturday were tears of joy as the Patriots surprised by winning the Palatine Regional at Brunswick Zone in Deer Park. “We expected to advance,” said Szura, “but we never expected to win the regional. I was nervous all day — I’m kind of a worry-wart — but in the end we were able to pull through, and I’m thrilled that we did.” Stevenson’s pinfall of 5,515 was a whopping 120 pins better than second-place Hoffman Estates (5,358), and both teams will advance to Saturday’s sectional tourney hosted by Rolling Meadows. Schaumburg (5,308) and Lake Zurich (5,288) will also move on to the sectional meet to be held at Brunswick in Mount Prospect, while the magical season of Barrington sophomore Sarah Tenyer continued in earnest. Just a week after winning Mid-Suburban League honors, Tenyer won medalist bragging rights at Deer Park with a 6-game total of 1,302 pins, including games of 246 and 235.

     
  • Warren bounces Lake Zurich Feb 7, 2015 10:53 PM
    The close calls are too many to count, as far as Warren coach Ryan Webber is concerned. But he and the rest of the Blue Devils boys basketball team figured that a close one would eventually bounce in their favor. On Saturday night in a North Suburban Lake Division contest with visiting Lake Zurich, the ball bounced the way of the Devils on more than one occasion. Of course, it certainly helps when senior Jovan Jokic and junior Maurice Chambers have the type of nights that they had. Jokic was virtually automatic from long range, hitting 4 in a game-best 21-point performance, and Chambers tallied 11 points as Warren hung on to defeat Lake Zurich 49-46.

     
  • Girls basketball / Lake County roundup Feb 7, 2015 10:59 PM

Sammi Jo Nixon and Kylie Nedelka added 9 points apiece for Warren (11-15, 4-8), which won for the fifth time in its last six games. The Blue Devils won their last three NSC Lake games.

     
  • Lake Zurich finishes what seniors started Feb 6, 2015 10:23 PM
    It dates back to the days of the Junior Bears. That’s the last time, until now, that those five players got on the court at the same time. The fivesome in question are Theresa Baumann, Elly Daleske, Rachel Dawson, Megan Holbrook and Allison Trybula. And all those years later, those five seniors took the court on senior night in Lake Zurich. And give those seniors a hand as they held their own for one quarter with visiting Mundelein before Lake Zurich coach Chris Bennett began substituting with the rest of his roster. Daleske is a regular in the Bears’ starting group. However, she didn’t find the hoop until late in the first half. That didn’t stop her mojo on this night. Daleske had 8 of Lake Zurich’s 10 points in the third quarter. The Bears (12-13, 5-6) held serve on senior night with a 51-40 win over NSC Lake foe Mundelein.
