    Maine Township High School District 207 Superintendent Ken Wallace has been at the helm of the district for more than four years, but perhaps it’s been the past 12 months that have been the most volatile. Wallace’s management of the district since a hazing scandal broke last fall — and the desire to ensure continuity in managing the fallout down the line — may have been one of the reasons school board members voted this week to give him a five-year contract extension.

  • WW South drives past Maine South Sep 7, 2013 9:15 AM
    The Wheaton Warrenville South offense took 16 minutes to get on track, but once the Tigers got going they were mighty tough to slow down. Visiting WW South needed just three plays to find the end zone in the second half to extend its lead over Maine South to 13-0 at the 10:28 mark in the third period. After leading just 7-0 at the break, WWS found the end zone on each of its first three possessions of the second half for an insurmountable 28-7 lead.

  • A lung-clearing win for Libertyville Jun 3, 2013 11:37 PM
    A breathtaking game had senior Kevin Calamari gasping for air. “I’m still not breathing,” the reliever joked after saving Libertyville’s 5-3 win over Maine South in a Class 4A supersectional at Aviators Stadium in Loves Park by pitching 3 scoreless innings. Calamari then survived a rugby scrum of euphoric Wildcats on the infield. Funny, in the Maine South fifth, the Hawks appeared on the verge of sucking the air out of Libertyville’s magical season. But after their second such mob celebration in as many games, the Wildcats are headed to state for the first time since 1976, when they finished second. Libertyville (27-11) will play St. Charles East (27-11), a 7-2 winner over Jacobs in Monday night’s second game at Aviators Stadium, at 5 p.m. Friday in a state semifinal at Silver Cross Field in Joliet.
