    Fate frowns on Lakes as Harvard advancesFeb 25, 2014 12:00 AM
    Lakes can chalk this one up to the “it just wasn’t meant to be” category as the Eagles met Harvard in the Class 2A Antioch dual team wrestling sectional Tuesday night. Starting the meet at 132 pounds, the Hornets jumped out to a commanding 33-9 lead after eight matches on the way to a 57-12 victory over Lakes. With the outcome decided, the Eagles chose to forfeit the last four bouts, which certainly wasn’t their game plan headed into the meet. Harvard (22-5) advanced to the Elite Eight quarterfinals at 11 a.m. Saturday against Oak Forest at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington. After winning its first regional in school history, Lakes closed out the 2013-14 season with an 18-7 record.

And those so-called lonely swimmers certainly contended. Libertyville prevailed as a group and will send most of its team to the state meet in Evanston next weekend. The team scores found the Cats up front with 294, while Lake Forest was second (275.50) and surprising Warren was third (203).

    Last year, when Antioch hosted the Class 3A sectional, it was the players on the basketball team that helped with game operations. The Sequoits, who had been eliminated from the tournament by then, did everything from run errands to assist during the 3-point shooting contest. “We’re hosting the sectional again this year, and the goal that we set in our first classroom meeting of the season is that we want to find other people to work the sectional because we want to play in it,” Antioch coach Jim White said. “We’re hoping that we get a better seed to help us get through the regional so that we can get back to our place for the sectional.”
