  • Heraty’s homer gets Grayslake Central goingJun 4, 2014 12:00 AM
    Grayslake Central’s softball team seemed to searching for energy until Brandy Heraty walked to the plate in the fourth inning. With one crack of the bat, she woke her team up during Wednesday’s Class 3A sectional semifinal at Ridgewood. Her home run pulled the Rams even on the scoreboard against Lakes. She added a bases-loaded walk in a 10-run fifth, as second-seeded Grayslake Central went on to beat the third-seeded Eagles 12-4. The Rams (23-12) will take on No. 1 Wauconda (28-8) in the sectional final at 11 a.m. Saturday.

    Winning show from Grant’s WellsMay 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    All through his senior season and for most of his career at Grant, Jonathan Wells hasn’t been known for being much of a showman. Wells always went about his business respectfully, with the class of a champion. But on Saturday, during the Class 3A boys track and field state finals at O’Brien Field, Wells decided to give the people what they wanted.

    Antioch’s softball team earned coach Anthony Rocco a homecoming. Freshman Jill Foote went 3-for-4 with a 3-run double that iced the Sequoits’ 9-5 win over host St. Viator in a Class 3A regional final in Arlington Heights on Saturday. The win lifted fifth-seeded Antioch (18-16) into Tuesday’s 4:30 p.m. sectional semifinal against No. 1 Wauconda (27-8) at Ridgewood, where Rocco spent three seasons. In his two seasons as head coach, Ridgewood won two regional championships.

  • Softball / Lake County roundupMay 29, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Stevenson and Zion-Benton softball teams split their two North Suburban Lake Division games this season. They met for the third time this season Thursday, and it was the ninth-seeded Zee-Bees who ousted the eighth-seeded Patriots with a 5-1 win in a Class 4A New Trier regional semifinal.

  • Johnsburg runner Mike Pritts eludes the tag from Lakes catcher Joe Dahlke in the fourth inning during the Class 3A regional semifinal game at Grayslake Central on Thursday.

    Ridout pitches Johnsburg past LakesMay 29, 2014 12:00 AM
    As he walked toward the parking lot, Johnsburg pitcher Collin Ridout avoided a wipeout. He stopped and deftly hopped a fence in a single bound to grant an interview request. It might have been his second-best leap in his baseball cleats Thursday. And, in truth, the display of athleticism wasn’t surprising considering what the senior right-hander did on Grayslake Central’s diamond. Ridout struck out 10 Lakes batters, scattered 4 singles and fielded his position brilliantly, as the third-seeded Skyhawks won the Class 3A regional semifinal 3-0 to earn a berth in Saturday’s title game. Johnsburg (20-13) will play top-seeded Grayslake Central (25-10) at 11 a.m. Ridout outdueled fellow hard-throwing ace Chase Slota, as Lakes, which started the season 0-5, finished 19-13.

    Bri Dreschler went 3-for-4 with a double, and Grant’s softball team pulled out a 5-4 win over second-seeded Prairie Ridge in a Class 4A regional semifinal at McHenry on Wednesday. McKenzie Sancken was 2-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI for No. 3 Grant (24-9), which advances to Saturday’s 11 a.m. regional final against the winner of today’s game between top-seeded McHenry and No. 4 Grayslake North.

  • Warren rolls; Zion-Benton eliminates LakesMay 27, 2014 12:00 AM
    The last time the Warren boys volleyball team made it to the sectional, senior middle hitter Max Bongratz was barely out of grade school. But Bongratz and his teammates are well-versed on that history. It’s what motivates them to go a little harder in the state tournament, as they did Tuesday night at the Antioch regional. The top-seeded Blue Devils had little trouble knocking off a scrappy Waukegan team in the semifinals, 25-12, 25-15. Warren will now face No. 2 Zion-Benton in today’s regional championship game (6 p.m.) at Antioch.

  • Boys volleyball / Lake County roundupMay 26, 2014 12:00 AM

    Prairie Ridge powers past LakesMay 24, 2014 12:00 AM
    When Lakes' girls soccer team took the field Saturday, the Eagles were looking to build on a season in which they had already won the North Suburban Prairie Division championship and improved their record from last year. Lakes couldn't handle defending state runner-up Prairie Ridge, however, as the fourth-seeded Eagles fell 4-1 in a Class 2A regional final in Lake Villa.

  • Warren’s Brittany Ellis crosses the finish line in the Class 3A 400-meter dash during the girls track and field state finals at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston on Saturday.

    Life in the fast lane: Warren’s Ellis third in 400May 24, 2014 12:00 AM
    Warren junior Brittny Ellis usually has no troubles switching gears, but the Blue Devils junior couldn’t quite get the acceleration she would have liked in the 400-meter final of the Class 3A girls track and field state meet at Eastern Illinois University’s O’Brien Stadium on Saturday. Ellis, the two-time defending 400 champion, entered the final turn neck-and-neck with Evanston senior Parker English and North Lawndale senior Briyahna DesRosiers. But Ellis couldn’t match the closing speed of English or DesRosiers. English finished first in a blistering 53.88, nipping DesRosiers (53.92) and followed by Ellis (54.30).

  • Crystal Lake South’s Lenzini runs to 800 winMay 23, 2014 12:00 AM
    David Lenzini’s plan was simple. Run smart. And his tactics worked. The Crystal Lake South senior, who was fourth entering the final lap of the 800 meters, sprinted past the field to win the race in a school record time of 1:55.24 at Friday night’s Class 3A Huntley boys track and field sectional.
