  • Drama aplenty through Day 1 of Stevenson sectional May 23, 2014 10:26 PM
    It was a nearly perfect day for Stevenson tennis Friday afternoon, but the story of the day was the success of the Vernon Hills doubles team of David Dobrik/Nikita Lunkov. In dramatic fashion and on their home courts, the duo rode the wave of momentum right into next weekend’s state tournament. The sectional host Patriots easily advanced their two doubles teams plus sophomore Benjamin Bush in singles, while the Libertyville duo of Ben VanDixhorn and Stefano Tsorotiotis left little doubt as to their status at the Vernon Hills Athletic Complex. Junior Kevin Hunt of Carmel will make his first appearance at state after a hard-fought straight-set victory over Brian Weisberg of Stevenson, while Barrington’s No. 1 team of Ishaan Jaglin-Scott Apmann (9-5) will join Hunt for their maiden voyage to the big show.

  • Back in form, Miller leads Barrington at Palatine May 23, 2014 12:50 AM
    One month ago, the outlook for Barrington junior Scotty Miller was anything but bright. Having suffered through walking pneumonia and losing weight from his already slight frame, Miller looked like anything but the standout sprinter who medaled twice at the Class 3A track and field meet a year ago. Fast forward to the Class 3A Palatine Sectional and any signs of a weakened or broken down Miller were nowhere to be found. Miller captured state-qualifying berths in three events for the first time as he helped lead the Broncos to the overall team title on Thursday.

     
  • Sparkling effort from NSC champ Lake Zurich May 22, 2014 10:41 PM
    The eye black, applied heavily and artfully smeared on the faces of Lake Zurich’s softball players, featured a glittery blend of black, blue and white. “We take great pride in our eye black,” senior third baseman Maria Schroeder said with a laugh. “It takes the whole bus ride to do.” It took the Bears much less time to set the tone in Thursday’s North Suburban Conference championship game at Wauconda. Schroeder scored all the way from first base on a two-out single to center field by Mallory Parsons, and Lake Zurich had the lead for good en route to a 3-1 win. Lake Zurich (23-4) last won the NSC title in 2011, when Schroeder was a freshman starter on varsity.

     
  • Heinz, Vernon Hills a hit against Lake Zurich May 21, 2014 10:00 PM
    On this night, Vernon Hills High School administrators could have invited a few college defensive players to show off their skills. And frankly, even with those folks’ considerable talents, they might not have been able to dig senior Michael Heinz’s kills. His hits were simply too hard to handle. It was advertised as the two best teams in the conference met with a North Suburban Conference title at state. Visiting Lake Zurich was unbeaten in the conference and the Cougars had just one loss. Lake Zurich battled toe to toe with Vernon Hills in the early going. And then Heinz, setter Ryan Opitz, blockers Lem Turner and Max Spiglanin and rising sophomore Jared Bennett took over the match. Coach Chris Curry’s club won its sixth league title in the past 7 years with an impressive 25-21, 25-12 victory.

  • Palatine, Barrington tops as change is in the air at LZ May 16, 2014 11:47 PM
    Change was a big theme at the Lake Zurich Class 3A sectional on Friday night. Palatine and Barrington once again locked up in a tense battle, but this time the Pirates were able to get the edge on the Mid-Suburban League champion Fillies to win the sectional title with 106 points. Warren junior sensation Brittny Ellis switched into the 1,600 relay and led the Blue Devils to a come-from-behind victory in 4:01.17. And Lakes junior twins Danielle and Brittani Griesbaum moved from Class 2A to Class 3A, but the result remained the same as they combined to qualify in six events.

  • Softball / Lake County roundup May 12, 2014 11:05 PM
    Wauconda softball coach Tim Rennels put his head down and took a step toward his team’s dugout after Alyssa Wagner flailed at a strike-two pitch for seemingly the last out of the game at Grant. But while Grant began to celebrate, first-base coach Dave Mills told Wagner to run to first base, which she did, because Caitlyn Moran’s pitch bounced in. After the umpires talked about it, they ruled that Wagner was never tagged on the dropped-third strike and that she was safe at first base. Kayla Wedl then hit an inside-the-park home run, and Taylor McCarthy followed with a solo blast over the fence. When Wedl retired Grant in order in the bottom of the seventh, Wauconda had a shocking, 3-1 win Monday to remain undefeated in the North Suburban Prairie Division. Wauconda improved to 20-7 and 9-0 in the NSC Prairie.

DeVito hit 3 home runs, giving her 10 for the season, as the Mustangs defeated host Deerfield 12-1 in Game 1 of a nonconference doubleheader. After her 3-for-4 performance, the left-handed-hitting DeVito went 3-for-4 again, tripling and singling twice, as visitors completed a sweep with a 12-2 win. The pair of wins hiked Mundelein’s record to 19-8.

     
  • Greatness for Grant in NSC meet May 21, 2014 10:25 AM
    On a night Lakes' Brittani Griesbaum nearly beat the great Brittny Ellis of Warren, when Griesbaum's teammate Kortney Schardt and fellow 1,600-meters competitor Lisa Bennatan of Lake Forest engaged in a photo finish of their own, Grant made sure there would be no doubt which track team would emerge as the North Suburban Conference champion. By the time anchor-leg Delaney Basala grabbed the baton, Grant's speedy sophomore had a large lead. She cruised to the finish, as the Bulldogs (4:08.18) won by nearly three seconds. Before the 1,600 relay even began, the Bulldogs had all but officially secured their first NSC title since 2007. Grant totaled 111 points at Vernon Hills on Friday, while Lakes (103.75) was second. Griesbaum's stellar night also included breaking the meet record in the long jump, as her mark of 18-5.5 bettered the 18-1.75 set by North Chicago's Aisha Morton in 2000.
