    During the final stages of Libertyville’s regional semifinal against host Notre Dame on Tuesday night, Scott Bogumil paced the sideline and kept looking at the scoreboard, knowing that it was going to be his final time coaching the Wildcats. And then it was over. No. 13 Libertyville lost 67-54 to fourth-seeded Notre Dame in Niles, earning the Dons a berth in Friday night’s Class 4A regional final. “It’s like a roller coaster that just stopped and they asked you to get off,” Bogumil said. “It’s like, ‘Do we have another ride?’ ” Bogumil’s 11th season ended with the Wildcats finishing 15-13.

  • Harrington, Bolman go out with medals Feb 28, 2015 11:09 PM
    Bittersweet was the operative word as the finals of the boys state swimming and diving meet concluded Saturday at New Trier. That primarily applied to all of the seniors. Included were Grayslake North’s Brenden Bolman and Libertyville’s Matt Harrington, both of whom are four-time state qualifiers who have plenty of swimming ahead of them. Bolman is heading to Missouri State in the fall, while Harrington is taking his talents to Princeton.

  • Bolman speaks volumes for Grayslake North Feb 27, 2015 11:36 PM
    Here’s a classic case of hoping word travels really fast. Chances are it will, and it’s largely due to the buzz that Grayslake North senior Brenden Bolman has helped create for the school’s swimming program. The Knights don’t have their own pool, nor do they have a full team. “I can’t wait until word gets back to our A.D. and the school,” Bolman said after qualifying for the finals in two events of the boys swimming and diving state finals held at New Trier High School on Friday. “I wish we had a team, but it’s still great to represent our school and make a name for Grayslake North. The support has been terrific.”

  • Big breakthrough for Vernon Hills Feb 21, 2015 10:19 PM
    From hugs to heartbreak, the gamut of emotions were on their usual display Saturday afternoon in the Vernon Hills boys swimming sectional meet. As far as the hugs, there were plenty to go around, especially after Vernon Hills’ junior Brian Rabinowitz had just finished second in the 100-yard backstroke and qualified for next weekend’s state meet at New Trier. “I just missed in the previous three events today, but this definitely makes up for it,” said Rabinowitz, who swam a 53.50. “It feels great to finally end the drought. I was a little worried coming in, but I just trusted my training. I’d love to get a 53 or lower (at state).” The drought Rabinowitz mentioned refers to a four-year absence since Vernon Hills has had a state qualifier in boys swimming.

  • Libertyville’s Gunther guns it, reaches state final Feb 20, 2015 11:03 PM
    Joey Gunther was a smashing success Friday. The Libertyville senior advanced to the 160-pound state wrestling final after outlasting Trace Carello of Marmion Academy in a marathon semifinal in Champaign. The top-seeded Gunther won 3-2 when he was awarded the 1-point winner as Carello (20-4) was unable to break away from an unyielding hold. “It’s wasn’t at all pretty, but as I said after my quarterfinal this morning, it’s not about style points down here,” said Gunther (36-1). Assured of a state medal, Gunther next tried to become the fourth state champ in Libertyville history. He’ll meet Matthew Rundell (32-3) of Oak Park-River Forest in the title bout on Day 3 of the state tournament.

  • Mundelein finding ways to enjoy the struggle Feb 19, 2015 9:55 PM
    Staying upbeat during a 2-25 season isn’t easy. So Mundelein coach Corey Knigge has gone out of his way to make sure his players are having some fun off the court. “We’ve had two rough seasons in a row,” said Knigge, referring to last year’s 2-28 campaign and the 0-11 mark in North Suburban Conference play this is part of this year’s two-win season. “We want the kids, especially our seniors, to have some good memories of this season.” On Wednesday, Knigge took his team down to Loyola University to a men’s game against Northern Iowa, which features former Mundelein standout Robert Knar. Last week, the Mustangs made their first trip to Loyola, to watch another former Mundelein star, Sean O’Brien, a sophomore at Southern Illinois.

  • Grayslake Central’s Makey making good in third downstate trip Feb 19, 2015 9:49 PM
    It’s easy to dwell on the rich wrestling tradition of Lake County’s perennial powers such as Libertyville and Grant. But there’s certainly room for more in that category, and Grayslake Central’s fast-growing program would love to join it. With competitors like Jon Makey around, the Rams certainly have taken a step in that direction. Coach Mark Stewart and Makey, a four-year veteran of the program, have formed a terrific partnership. And now, after the first day of the wrestling state touranment, Makey has broken new ground with his first state tournament victory. The senior now turns his attention to bigger and better things. Makey (41-3) will meet Chase Vosburgh (42-0) of Mt. Vernon in the 11 a.m. Class 2A quarterfinal session with an opportunity to enhance his chances at a state medal.

  • Fremd adapts, gets past Libertyville Feb 19, 2015 11:03 PM
    Dressed in her full Fremd basketball uniform, including a warm-up top over her jersey, Haley Gorecki sat on the bench, head up and ears perked. She even handed her teammates tiny cups of water during a timeout. “She wanted to play,” Vikings coach Dave Yates said of his 6-foot guard. “But we told her, ‘If we need it, we’ll do it.’ ” Fremd never needed its Duke-bound senior in Thursday night’s Class 4A Lake Forest regional final. Behind point guard Brianna Lewis’ game-high 11 points and a defensive effort that allowed only 7 field goals, the top-seeded Vikings defeated No. 8 Libertyville 45-24. Yates said Gorecki tweaked her ankle at the end of practice Wednesday. She had scored 30 points in the regional semifinal against Zion-Benton.
