  • 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.

  • 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.

The Chargers’ standout, the reigning Class 3A state runner-up at 182 pounds, terminated his championship match against Geneva senior Austin Chaon with his third near-fall late in the final period to secure a technical fall.

  • Fine finish pleases Lake Zurich Jan 10, 2015 11:31 PM
    Lake Zurich girls basketball coach Chris Bennett was all smiles after his Bears defeated host Mundelein 46-34 in a North Suburban Conference Lake Division game on Saturday night. 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.”

  • Stevenson, St. Charles East put team first at Bear Invitational Jan 10, 2015 6:11 PM
    A season on the upswing continued in that direction on Saturday for Stevenson’s boys bowling team. The Patriots had already rolled past their competition in the Northern Illinois boys bowling conference, winning the title for the first time this past week.

  • O’Neill’s big shot, fourth-quarter ‘D’ lift Lake Zurich Jan 9, 2015 10:10 PM
    Jack O’Neill’s 3-point shot from beyond halfcourt set Friday night’s game on its heels. It not only gave his Lake Zurich team a slim third-quarter lead, but it set the stage for a very odd fourth quarter. Yes, visiting Warren was still within a basket heading to the final quarter of this North Suburban Lake clash. Maybe Lake Zurich assistant coach Don Rowley, he of Hersey High School fame, explained it best. “I’ve never seen that in my 44 years of coaching,’’ Rowley said. Warren (4-10, 2-4) was shut out the entire fourth quarter in this sluggish offensive game won by the Bears 36-23.

  • Perfect 300 pitch from Stevenson’s Singer Jan 7, 2015 7:19 PM

  • Rebounds aplenty for Lake Zurich’s Penny Jan 7, 2015 8:51 PM
    A penny doesn’t get you much. Lake Zurich’s boys basketball team is receiving great value from its Penny, however. Nick Penny was money, especially on the boards, during the Pekin Insurance Holiday Tournament. The 6-foot-1 junior grabbed a tourney-best 28 rebounds over four games in helping the Bears win the championship for the first time in their 19 years going to the tournament. Penny pulled down 5 rebounds, including 3 on the offensive glass, in Lake Zurich’s 71-41 loss to visiting Stevenson on Tuesday night. Not bad for a point guard.

  • Motivated Stevenson handles Lake Zurich Jan 6, 2015 10:53 PM
    Sometime after halftime but before he threw down a pair of one-handed dunks seconds apart in the third quarter on Lake Zurich’s court, Jalen Brunson received the sweet news. No school Wednesday due to expected sub-zero-degree temperatures. “We were walking out of a huddle and I remember (teammate) Parker (Nichols) telling me,” Brunson said. “It got me hyped.” Sweeter news for Stevenson? The Patriots went into their “one-day break” by beating Lake Zurich 71-41 in the two teams’ North Suburban Conference Lake Division showdown Tuesday night.
