  • Streamwood, basketball will miss retiring Prose’s presence Jan 22, 2015 10:20 PM

  • Larkin ends losing streak with win over Streamwood Jan 22, 2015 11:26 PM
    Larkin point guard Charles Sanders admitted that after winning the Hinkle Holiday Classic to end 2014, he didn’t see the Royals’ 3-game losing streak coming. But what Sanders also admitted to coach Deryn Carter before Larkin took out Streamwood 70-53 in Upstate Eight River boys basketball action Thursday night in Elgin to get off the snide was that he needed to step up his senior leadership to right the Royals’ ship.

  • Freshmen making their mark in Fox Valley Jan 22, 2015 1:31 PM
    A varsity basketball coach’s decision to play freshmen has its pros and cons. Sometimes a coach’s hand is willfully forced by the sheer athleticism or size of an incoming freshman. For example, anyone in the Fox Valley area who last year witnessed the play of 6-foot-5 Larkin forward Christian Negron, 6-8 Jacobs center Cameron Krutwig or Hampshire 6-3 forward Brennen Woods as freshmen understood those players belonged in their respective lineups from a physical standpoint.

  • Girls basketball / Fox Valley roundup Jan 20, 2015 10:52 PM

  • Larkin topples Westminster Jan 19, 2015 4:02 PM
    Normally when Marlee Kyles and Quixmia Washington start off slow for the Larkin girls basketball team, the Royals can find themselves in a jam early in the contest. So when the duo combined for just 4 points in the first quarter in the final round of the Elgin City Classic against Westminster Christian it could have spelled trouble. Luckily for the Royals the rest of the team picked up the slack, ripping off an 18-0 run to end the first quarter and start the second as they snapped a 3-game losing streak and won big 52-26 on the Warriors’ home court Monday.

  • Bartlett/Streamwood swims strong in Coleman’s honor Jan 17, 2015 6:29 PM
    The Mike Coleman Memorial Invitational isn’t just another meet on the schedule for the Bartlett/Streamwood co-op boys swim team. Sure, it was a home meet, but there’s a lot more to it for the Sabrehawks. Its namesake was a former team MVP and record holder in the 200-yard medley relay and 200 free relay, who passed away in 2011. That’s why the past couple of weeks of training were dedicated solely to racing well against a slate of formidable competition. That the Sabrehawks did, finishing fourth with 63 points, behind repeat champion Plainfield, which won eight of the 10 events and finished with 155 points.

  • St. Charles East dominates Larkin Jan 16, 2015 10:58 PM
    St. Charles East boys basketball coach Patrick Woods stressed three things to his team prior to Friday night’s Upstate Eight Conference River Division battle with Larkin. “Rebounding, taking charges and defense,” said Woods. “The kids will tell you that’s all we talked about.” Evidently, the Saints’ players heard their coach loud and clear. While enjoying a decisive 47-26 edge on the boards, the Saints (15-1, 7-0) also limited the Royals (12-7, 4-4) to 37 percent shooting from the field during their 71-46 triumph in St. Charles.

  • Crystal Lake South nips Larkin Jan 14, 2015 1:07 AM

  • Andresen likes the progress D300 co-op is making Jan 14, 2015 9:48 PM
    While the District 300 (Dundee-Crown, Hampshire, Jacobs) boys swimming team didn’t register a victory in a recent meet against the District 155 co-op team, coach Rick Andresen saw plenty of progress that has him optimistic about what lies ahead. “We had a good meet,” he said. “We saw a lot of encouraging things and we saw some things that need work. We are getting better, but we need to tighten some things. The times we swam were very respectable. We had nice time drops in some events. All of the hard work we did during the holiday break might be paying off. I’m pleased overall, especially with the improvement of our younger kids.”

  • Larkin looking to rebound vs. St. Charles East Jan 14, 2015 10:16 PM
    The Larkin boys basketball team must perform better than it did in two recent losses if the two-time defending Upstate Eight River champions intend to compete with league-leading St. Charles East on Friday. Larkin (12-6, 4-3) visits St. Charles East (14-1, 6-0) at 7:15 p.m. The Saints won the first meeting between the teams in Elgin on Dec. 5, 62-54, led by 20 points from point guard Cole Gentry, 14 points from 6-foot-5 forward Michael Vyzral and 12 points by 6-2 senior guard Jake Asquini.

  • Streamwood downs West Chicago Jan 14, 2015 10:49 PM
    After letting what it thought was a potential win slip through its fingers at Bartlett Tuesday night, the Streamwood girls basketball team was determined to right the ship Wednesday against West Chicago. And that the Sabres did, overcoming an early 8-2 deficit to run away with the Wildcats, 46-29, in an Upstate Eight Conference River Division game at Streamwood.
