You try being 10 places at onceMar 7, 2014 12:00 AM
Any basketball fan can relate to my dilemma Friday night.
Loebel’s return making major impact for GenevaFeb 27, 2014 12:00 AM
Michaela Loebel might have had the worst seat in the house when Geneva played Batavia last month, having to sit in street clothes on the Vikings’ bench while Liza Fruendt scored 51 points in the Bulldogs’ second straight win over Geneva. What a difference it makes for Geneva to have Loebel back on the court. She got her first start since returning from a knee injury Thursday night in the Class 4A Addison Trail sectional championship game, and the senior played a large role in holding Fruendt to 10 points — 15 below her average — in the Vikings’ 48-24 victory.
Faith, basketball, help Harrell through tragedyJan 4, 2014 12:00 AM
Anyone who spent time with former Batavia boys basketball coach Jim Roberts knew exactly how the Hall of Famer would end a conversation after one of the Bulldogs’ games. “Drive safe.” Those words came to mind last week following the tragic car accident that took the life of Jarred Harrell, the 21-year-old brother of Aurora Christian senior Jonathan Harrell.
St. Charles North won’t let big win go to its heads Sep 18, 2013 12:00 AM
We’re bringing a little bit of everything while waiting for Week 4 of the high school football season to arrive Friday night ... Super scene: It’s always interesting to see what unfolds when St. Charles East and St. Charles North’s volleyball teams squre off, and Tuesday certainly was no exception. For the first time in nine tries, St. Charles North was able to come out on top, 25-17, 23-25, 25-22.
Tri-Cities rivalry night delivers once again Sep 14, 2013 12:00 AM
Every year for us sports writer types in the Tri-Cities there’s not much better on the prep sports calendar than the Batavia-Geneva and St. Charles East-St. Charles North games. That’s true for any sport but especially football (and I’ve got a soft spot for the boys and girls basketball matchups as well). Unfortunately the past few years the Upstate Eight Conference has scheduled those two rivalry football games for the same night. Which for me turns it from one of the best nights of the year into a struggle trying to decide which game to see.
West Aurora's McAuley shines in defeatMar 12, 2013 12:00 AM
In a supersectional in front of a packed house at Hinsdale Central Tuesday night, Proviso East’s star-studded lineup included a Division I guard Paris Lee going to Illinois State and the brother of NBA guard Shannon Brown — Sterling Brown — who is headed to SMU. Those two certainly played excellent. Lee finished with 16 points and 3 steals while Brown scored 10 of his 14 points in the second half helping the Pirates overcome an early 7-point West Aurora lead for a 62-52 victory. But as good as those two were — Lee’s performance had his coach Donnie Boyce calling him the best point guard in the state — more than one observer left Hinsdale saying the best player on the floor Tuesday was wearing the Blackhawks’ No. 52 white jersey. Josh McAuley capped his phenomenal rise through his four years at West Aurora by doing everything he could to keep the Blackhawks in the game. He scored 22 points, snatched 16 rebounds and swatted 4 blocked shots.
Proviso’s presure rattles West Aurora Mar 13, 2012 12:00 AM
In a contrast of coaches you dont see every day, West Auroras Gordie Kerkman in his 36th year leading the Blackhawks matched up against Proviso East rookie Donnie Boyce Tuesday night at a packed Hinsdale Central gym for the Class 4A supersectional title.
ACC seniors leave their mark Mar 9, 2012 12:00 AM
If ever a team needed good senior leadership, it was this year's Aurora Central Catholic boys basketball squad. Faced with one bad break after another -- and seemingly one loss after another -- the wheels easily could have come off the Chargers' season. Instead Aurora Central, as has become its tradition, regrouped and saved its best basketball for the most important time of the year. The Chargers gave their fans four memorable postseason games, and those fans came out in droves for each one, the final one a standing-room-only setting in a 63-52 loss to Rockford East in the Class 3A Sycamore sectional championship game Friday.
Thomas twins punish Plainfield East Mar 6, 2012 12:00 AM
Turns out understanding why Chandler Thomas is such a relentless rebounder is as easy as figuring out why Spencer Thomas also cant be kept off the glass.
Familiar face up next for Geneva Feb 27, 2012 12:00 AM
One rival down, another intriguing matchup up next. Fourteenth-seeded Geneva suffocated Batavia in the first half Monday at the Class 4A Metea Valley regional on its way to a 55-46 victory to earn a semifinal date Tuesday with the host Mustangs.
Geneva's future is quite bright Feb 20, 2012 12:00 AM
One of the more observant reporters (and it sure wasn't me) covering Geneva's season-ending loss Monday noticed that after changing into her Vikings windbreaker and sweats following the game coach Sarah Meadows looked ready for practice. And it turns out she was, no doubt wanting to work on getting back on defense and some offensive struggles in a 54-37 loss to Wheaton Warrenville South at the Class 4A Hoffman Estates sectional that was uncharacteristic of Geneva's 24-6 season.
This could go down as year of the injury Jan 20, 2012 12:00 AM
I think I’ve found a positive to the snow that wiped out basically an entire slate of prep sports Friday night. No games means that nobody gets hurt.
Even through trying times, Aurora Christian stays united Nov 25, 2011 12:00 AM
If ever a program needed a healthy dose of faith to make it through a season, it was the 2011 Aurora Christian football team. Good thing for Don Beebe's Eagles that they have the kind of faith that moves mountains. And as it turns out, that also can hoist a state championship trophy. Aurora, you have a state football champion. Finally.
Gaspari, Batavia seniors take one wild ride Nov 19, 2011 12:00 AM
As Noel Gaspari walked off the field at Bulldog Stadium Saturday for the final time as a player following a 33-22 loss to Prairie Ridge, it was hard to imagine someone who has been through more in his three years of varsity football. I couldn’t help but think back to watching Gaspari and fellow three-year starter Cole Gardner two years ago on the same field following their final game that season, a 23-0 loss to Geneva. Thinking about how much has changed in the two years.
It’s a Saint thing Nov 8, 2011 12:00 AM
In the delirious postgame celebration following St. Charles East’s 21-25, 25-8, 25-17 victory over Glenbrook South Saturday night at the Class 4A York supersectional, Saints coach Jennie Kull let out a big cheer for a group of people who had been doing the same for her team during the match.
Batavia stays calm, keeps believing Oct 28, 2011 12:00 AM
Batavia’s student section did their rendition of that ever-growing chant, the one that’s probably replaced “o-ver-rated” as the one I hear most at sporting events these days, Friday night during the Bulldogs’ Class 6A playoff opener with Notre Dame.
Plenty of memorable moments ... as usual Sep 30, 2011 12:00 AM
Let’s look back at the best of Batavia-Geneva 2011 ...
Kaneland’s high-powered attack keeps rolling Sep 24, 2011 12:00 AM
As impressive as the halftime fireworks show was Friday night at Kaneland’s Homecoming football game — and that was some spectacular grand finale — it was nothing to the fireworks sophomore quarterback Drew David and his high-flying offense provided in the first half.
Gray even better under bright lights Sep 16, 2011 12:00 AM
Batavia has seen a few stars emerge through the years during 7-on-7 summer camps. That’s nice, but they prefer stars break out under the Friday Night Lights every time. Looks like they’ve got one of both in senior corner back/wide receiver Jon Gray.
Two tight just right for GenevaSep 9, 2011 12:00 AM
A little smile came to Rob Wicinski's face when asked about any adjustments Geneva made Friday after it surprisingly came to the locker room on the short end of a 17-14 halftime score against 0-2 St. Charles East.
