  • Boggs’ journey can be a lesson to all Sep 5, 2013 5:23 PM
    Goals and dreams. Almost everyone has them. Young athletes should definitely have them. Taylor Boggs' story is one reason why.

     
  • Major development for Fremd product Tauchman Jun 15, 2013 1:31 AM
    Mike Tauchman hopes he is on a Rockie road toward a big-league baseball career. It is a path the former Fremd High School baseball and football star has pursued for years. And it took a turn in the right direction last week when Tauchman was chosen by the Colorado Rockies in the 10th round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft after a stellar four-year career at Bradley University.

     
  • It all adds up to Fivelson coaching at Conant Jun 8, 2013 8:14 PM
    Derek Fivelson is a numbers guy. It would figure since he teaches math and coaches the senior math team at Hoffman Estates High School. Fivelson has also been an adjunct math professor at Roosevelt University. But Fivelson wasn’t interested in any numbers games as he prepared for his first meeting with his new players Friday as Conant’s new varsity baseball coach.

     
  • School’s out — just in time for preparation season to begin Jun 6, 2013 7:19 PM
    The end of the school year marks a time to get refreshed for some - and a time to get refocused for others.

     
  • Cool finish to a tumultuous senior year for Prospect’s Smith May 23, 2013 3:11 PM
    Zach Smith was no different from many other high school athletes when he had to face the unfortunate reality he would be competing in a Prospect uniform for the last time Monday afternoon. What was different for Smith, however, was how fortunate he was to have one final opportunity to pitch for the Knights in their regional quarterfinal baseball loss at Lake Zurich. And how blessed the 6-foot-2½, 250-pound left-hander was to get the chances to put on his school’s football and baseball uniforms at all during his senior year.

     
  • Pitch-count math can get pretty complex May 16, 2013 7:01 PM
    Keeping track of how many times a pitcher has delivered during a game can be a good thing to know, but it's awfully hard to enforce firm limits, simply because every pitcher is different.

     
  • Football limits in Texas; spring sports snowed under in North Dakota May 2, 2013 10:37 PM
    A lot of the furor has subsided over a recent effort by members of the Illinois state legislature to place limits on the amount of constant contact in high school football practices. But don't start believing this is an issue which will quietly disappear around here. Especially since the one state almost synonymous with high school football is on the verge of enacting practice contact limitations. Nearly two weeks ago, the Texas University Interscholastic League's Medical Advisory Committee recommended a 90-minute limit on full-contact, game-speed practices in the regular season and postseason for its high school football programs. And the recommendation was unanimous.

     
  • Dick embraces challenge as Fremd’s next AD Apr 25, 2013 4:03 PM
    David Dick knows he will face all kinds of challenges when he officially takes over as Fremd High School's athletic director in July. One he'll face down the road is the potential for a house divided. Dick and his wife Jennifer have a daughter Rhiann (11 years old) and sons D.J. (9) and Darrin (5) who will eventually go to Palatine High School. "That should make for an interesting cross-town situation," David Dick said with a laugh of his kids who are all involved in sports. But that's a future "problem." Dick said his family is thrilled about his opportunity to lead an athletic department after more than 20 years as a coach and administrator at Barrington. Dick will replace Augie Fontanetta, who is moving up to oversee athletics for all five District 211 schools. Dick was the athletic director at Barrington Middle School for eight years and he also spent the last two years assisting in the high school's athletic department thanks to a plan by principal Steve McWilliams and athletic director Mike Obsuszt.

     
  • Buffalo Grove’s O’Connor makes room for a new dream Apr 10, 2013 8:47 PM
    Ryan O’Connor was living the dream he envisioned as a teenager. “If you had asked me when I was 18 years old, where I want to be in my 40s,” O’Connor said Wednesday afternoon, “it was to teach at a great school and to be a head coach of a quality basketball program.” The 1989 Rolling Meadows graduate was able to do both fairly close to home at Buffalo Grove. But even dreams take different shapes and directions. So, now O’Connor’s dream job will be solely as a teacher at BG. Among the reasons O’Connor decided to step down after 13 years of leading the boys program are his wife Kim and their three children — 11-year-old Kaitlynne, 8-year-old Karlie and 5-year-old Sean.

     
  • Two decades later, Fremd’s memorable run still resonates Mar 30, 2013 4:58 PM
    There were Fremd boys basketball teams that compiled gaudier records. There were Vikings teams with players who received more acclaim. But no team in Fremd history can match what this one accomplished 20 years ago. And no one in the Mid-Suburban League had played such an integral part in March Madness before 1993.

     
  • Sixth sense says Simeon will be tough to beat Mar 14, 2013 11:56 AM
    The IHSA will be hoping this weekend's Class 3A and 4A boys basketball state tournaments are devoid of the controversy that has marred last Saturday's 2A title-game win by Harrisburg over Seton Academy. An opportunity for history to be made could bring some welcome attention back to the Peoria Civic Center when the big schools are finished late Saturday night. Simeon and Duke-bound star Jabari Parker are trying to match the state record of four straight titles set by Peoria Manual and Sergio McClain from 1994-97. But, as always, there are plenty of other intriguing storylines as we enter the sixth year of four-class basketball. So, let's get on with our sixth year of tourney predictions, starting with Class 4A.

     
  • For Dello, the hard part was just being able to say ‘yes’ Mar 7, 2013 10:15 PM
    Marty Dello's return to coaching high school basketball was rewarded with a stellar season at Chicagland Jewish Academy. The former Barrington head coach helped make a bunch of winning memories for a team that finished 21-4.

     
  • ‘Hoffman West’ stepping to the forefront Feb 28, 2013 9:52 PM
    Getting to know athletes and coaches is one of the best aspects of covering a core group of schools for a significant length of time. And it’s always fun to see the people you first knew as athletes eventually make their way into teaching and coaching. That’s what made it pretty cool to cover Monday night’s Class 4A girls basketball supersectional game at Dundee-Crown when Huntley faced Wheaton Warrenville South.

     
  • True to form, Macnider takes temporary setback in stride Feb 14, 2013 8:41 PM
    Running has been a significant part of Jon Macnider’s life. A three-day layoff from running could seem to be an eternity for someone like Macnider. So, one can imagine the distressing thoughts Macnider had in the fall of 2010 about thoughts of a longer or even permanent layoff from something which has provided him with so much joy.

     
  • Turns out Princeton suits Barrington’s Darrow just fine Jan 31, 2013 8:05 PM
    Barrington senior Mason Darrow was not going to narrow his college focus solely to the school which best fit his football future. Darrow also wasn't sure, however, about having the arrow point toward Princeton. He couldn't go wrong academically with the Ivy League. But he wasn't sure if it was the right choice to go where his brother Mack is a senior basketball player. "Initially, I wasn't really looking at Princeton because I didn't want to go to the same place my brother did," Mason said. "It turned for me a little bit after hearing him talk about his experiences and meeting some of his friends and people on campus. My interest level grew."

     
  • You’ll see all types in coaching Jan 10, 2013 10:37 PM
    What does demeanor really mean when it comes to coaching?

     
  • Hardwood Classic maturing quite nicely Dec 20, 2012 11:31 PM
    Turning 35 has not resulted in a midlife crisis for the Wheeling Hardwood Classic. And that’s saying something in an era of boys basketball holiday tournaments where Illinois teams are free to travel anywhere in the country. Prestigious events such as Proviso West are super-sizing and doubling their fields from 16 to 32 teams while other tourneys battle to survive and continue on with fields that really aren’t compelling. But the Hardwood Classic continues to give basketball coaches, players and fans what then head coach Ted Ecker envisioned when he started the event in 1978. A first-class experience that makes for a happy holiday — unless you’ve gone 0-4 and just played three straight 9 a.m. games. The Hardwood may not have the eight decades of tradition and talent of Pontiac or the star power of Proviso West. But starting Wednesday it will continue to thrive by providing four days of good basketball with a local-oriented flavor and hospitality that is second to none.

     
  • Like no one else, Sherrill shares the history of wrestling in Illinois Dec 6, 2012 4:49 PM
    Just in time for the holidays for the wrestling fan is Rob Sherrill's new book, "Tales From the Mat: Illinois High School Wrestling at 75." The 500-page book is filled with more than 200 photos. stories, facts and figures about the sport's start in Chicago high schools through all 75 state tournaments held by the IHSA. It retails at $37.95.

     
  • Let’s be clear: There’s no room for hazing in high school sports Nov 29, 2012 11:51 PM
    If there is a lesson from the recent high school hazing incident in the news, it's that every school had better make it perfectly clear this type of misbehavior won't be tolerated. Starting with superintendents, to principals, to athletic directors, to coaches, and ultimately to athletes, that there is no rational explanation for hazing others.

     
  • Pickin’ over high school football’s final helping Nov 22, 2012 1:09 AM
