  • Ross, Lyons too much for Leyden Sep 13, 2013 10:53 PM
    Sometimes a team just needs to take a road trip to get back on course. After dropping its first two games of the season at home, Lyons (1-2) went on the road and picked up a 31-14 win over Leyden on Friday night in a West Surburban crossover game. “I don’t really get too caught up in all of that,” Lyons coach Kurt Weinberg said of the road win. “All I know is that we needed a win and that’s what we accomplished tonight.” It also didn’t hurt that the Lions had Leonard Ross suited up for them. The junior tailback rushed for a game-high 225 yards and scored 3 touchdowns.

  • Hilltoppers falter in bid for upset Sep 10, 2013 10:40 PM
    Glenbard West girls tennis coach Jim Valleskey was generally happy with the way his team battled, but he expected a better result than the Hilltoppers’ 5-2 loss to Lyons Twp. on Tuesday. After all, the Hilltoppers (7-1) made a strong showing against perennial West Suburban Silver champion last Saturday before losing in the finals of the Downers Grove South Team Tournament. “This was a rough one for us,” Valleskey said. “We had better hopes than this. We played them tough and lost a couple of close matches. But I guess this is how our league will go this year because there are so many strong teams.” It isn’t as if the Hilltoppers lost to just anyone. The Lions (6-0) bring strong credentials to the conference race. The Lions finished fifth at state last year on the strength of two of the best singles players in Illinois: Alex Chatt, who finished second, and Kristen Thoms, who finished in the top 16. The Hilltoppers’ Caroline Maltby played well against Chatt at first singles before losing 6-3, 6-4. And Thoms, playing first doubles with her partner, Stefana Vasic, won 6-1, 6-3. Both Valleskey and Lyons coach Bill Wham believe the Lions have a chance to threaten Hinsdale Central for the conference title. “Lyons will challenge them,” Valleskey said. “But Hinsdale Central is still the team to beat.” “Hinsdale is a little better than we are,” Wham said. “But we we’re strong at singles and we’ve got a doubles team of Jelly Bozovic and Stefana Vasic that will be very good. It’s going to be an interesting year in our conference because there are so many strong teams.” The Hilltoppers showed its quality depth with wins at third singles and fourth doubles. Sarah Park, who is playing in only her second year of organized tennis, fought back from a first set loss to top Lyons’ Melissa Ko 6-3, 6-2 in the second and third sets for one of the Hilltoppers’ points. “After the first set I figured out what was working for me,” Park said. “I went to my forehand and drove the ball deep in the corner. She seemed to be tiring in the heat and I was feeling strong. My mental game has gotten a lot stronger since last year. I’m using a lot more strategy.” The Hilltoppers’ fourth doubles team of Cece Casolino and Megan Morris won their match 6-1, 6-1. “This is our second year playing as a team,” Casolino said. “And that experience has really helped us. We started a little slowly today, but as the match went on we started working together as a team and really focusing on each point. We were really in sync.”

  • Outcome aside, Prospect savors a brush with fame Jan 12, 2013 5:24 PM
    Standing outside their locker room in the United Center, several Prospect basketball players abruptly took off down the hallway. Injured Bulls superstar Derrick Rose was walking from the locker room to the court to get in a workout four hours before the Bulls tipped off against the Phoenix Suns. “He was ballin’,” said Prospect guard Bobby Frasco of Rose. “He looked ready to play. It was sick. We’re like kids on Christmas.” It was moments like those which made Prospect’s 65-36 loss to Lyons Township at the Madhouse on Madison more about the experience than the actual result.
