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.

  • Verber’s impact was widespread in high school sports Feb 4, 2013 4:49 PM
    There are not many coaches from the Chicago suburbs who can say they were part of an IHSA state basketball championship team. But that's what happened for George Verber as an assistant to Maine South coach Quitman Sullins when the Hawks won the 1979 Class AA state title. Verber, who died from leukemia on Jan. 22, went on to become the head coach at Maine West for three seasons and led the Warriors to a conference championship in the 1981-82 season. That was the same year Derril Kipp took over the girls basketball program at Maine West. "He helped teach our kids the 1-3-1 defense we used in 1985 when we beat Maine South to go downstate," said Kipp, a Hall of Fame coach.
