  • Mikaelian, Libertyville climb to the top in NSC Sep 30, 2014 10:27 PM
    Even the best golfers top a shot, say, once a year. “I do it more often than you’d probably think,” Libertyville’s Simone Mikaelian said with a sheepish laugh. On Bonnie Brook Golf Course’s par-3 No. 3 Tuesday, Mikaelian topped her tee shot, which landed in the bottom of a pond. She carded a rare double-bogey. The best golfers, however, don’t lament topped shots, other bad ones or bad holes. By the end of the North Suburban Conference meet, Mikaelian was the top golfer, topped shot and all. Her 80 earned her the inaugural Marlene Miller medalist honor, as the sophomore finished 1 stroke better than senior Annette Yandall, who was the only golfer representing Wauconda. Led by the 5-foot-3 Mikaelian and other all-conference rounds from Megan Sturonas (88, sixth), Katherine Stegman (93, 10th) and Jessica Lovinger (95, 16th), Libertyville capped off a perfect NSC season by capturing the conference championship with a 356. Stevenson (372), which lost its dual meet against Libertyville on a sixth-score tiebreaker, was second. Lake Forest (377), Vernon Hills (381) and Mundelein (394) completed the top five.

    Libertyville girls volleyball coach Greg Loika called it a “hiccup,” which his Wildcats overcame to outlast Buffalo Grove 25-20, 17-25, 25-6 in a nonconference match Tuesday night. Alex Basler paced Libertyville (19-4) with 13 kills and 5 blocks, while Anna Lillydahl and Erin Dunleavy added 6 and 5 kills, respectively. The Wildcats’ “hiccup” occurred when setter Liz Apgar went out in the second set due to an injury, Loika said. But she returned in Set 3, helping her team storm to a 6-1 lead. A 12-point serving run by Morgan O’Brien ended the set. Apgar dished out 23 assists, while Sinead Prentiss contributed 5 assists and 12 digs. O’Brien had 19 digs, and Mikaella Faber tallied eight. Nazareth d. Carmel: The Corsairs lost for just the third time this season, as they fell 18-25, 27-25, 25-16 in East Suburban Catholic Conference action. Carmel (14-3, 1-1) received 9 kills and 17 assists from Morgan Meade. Grace Schofield had 7 kills, 6 aces, 10 digs and 2 blocks for the Corsairs, and Grace Butler pounded 6 kills and lofted 13 assists, and Sierra Kepski tallied 14 digs. Stevenson d. Barrington: Jori Radtke had 9 kills for the Patriots in their 25-20, 25-23 nonconference win. Stevenson (14-10) also received 4 kills and 3 solo blocks from Corissa Kurth and 16 digs from Morgan Berland. Radtke and Berland each served 2 aces. Crystal Lake Central d. Grayslake North: Stefani Keilwitz and Emily Smith each had a pair of kills for the Knights in their 25-15, 25-12 loss to the Tigers in Fox Valley Fox action. Cassie Reimbold and Nicole LeBaron tallied 8 and 7 digs, respectively, for Grayslake North. Lakes d. Mundelein: On Monday, Megan Behrendt’s 9 kills and 6 digs helped the Eagles win the North Suburban crossover 25-20, 25-13. McKenna Lahr added 6 kills, 3 blocks and 8 digs for Lakes, and Maddie Demo totaled 5 kills, 14 assists and 5 aces.

  • It all comes together for NSC champ Vernon Hills Sep 30, 2014 8:03 PM
    The Vernon Hills boys golf team became the first squad from the North Suburban Conference’s Prairie Division to claim the overall league title on Tuesday. And the entire Cougars clan celebrated with a giant group selfie featuring both the conference and divisional hardware outside the clubhouse at Willow Glen Golf Course in Great Lakes. Vernon Hills posted a top score of 297, 5 shots better than Lake Forest (302) and 7 ahead of Stevenson (304) in the NSC meet.

  • Stevenson outruns Lakes Sep 27, 2014 9:42 AM
    Lakes’ unblemished record got nicked and so did its budding-star running back. And then there was Stevenson nose guard Blake Drazner, balancing himself on crutches, his ankle wrapped with ice, and yet somehow smiling, his pain numbed by victory, apparently. “I just got my leg all cut up in the wash,” Drazner said. “It’s fine, though. It’s just a bruise.” In a North Suburban Conference crossover in which it probably had more to lose than gain, Stevenson, the state’s top-ranked team in Class 8A, escaped Lakes unscathed. The Patriots prevailed 21-3 in a battle of unbeaten squads, despite a gutsy effort by its opponent.

  • Patient Park putts proficiently for Vernon Hills Sep 20, 2014 10:54 PM
    Justin Park had a long time to think about a long putt. The Vernon Hills sophomore refused to wear a long face, however. As he made the long walk back to the clubhouse when a rainstorm interrupted Mundelein’s invitational at Steeple Chase Golf Club on Saturday, instead of frowning, Park focused. He had lagged his putt 10 feet short on the hole on the par-4 13th when the rain came.

  • Three stars power Lakes past Wauconda Sep 19, 2014 11:50 PM
    On Friday, the Chicagoland area witnessed the start of our beloved professional hockey club’s training camp down in Indiana. And a hockey theme was also on display in Lake County at Polley Field on Friday night. A hat trick in hockey is when a player scores 3 goals. Host Lakes had three players achieve differing football versions of the feat in their fourth straight win, a 56-13 North Suburban Prairie Division victory over Wauconda.

  • Plenty of highlights in the McNamara home Sep 18, 2014 8:53 PM
    Although Bill McNamara missed the “big game” in person, he found it just as much fun to watch on tape. McNamara is the head football coach at Stevenson. His team was busy playing a game against Warren last week at the same time his son Connor, the starting quarterback at Vernon Hills, was taking on North Chicago. The younger McNamara wound up taking part in a school-record 7 touchdowns in a 64-28 win. He rushed for 6 scores and threw for another.
