  • Elk Grove takes aims downstate Jun 7, 2012 10:01 PM
    He has been running the show for 32 seasons but hall of fame coach Ken Grams will be the first to tell you it's about the kids. The kids, however, are saying this one is for the coach. All-state pitcher Dani Goranson and the Elk Grove Grenadiers would love to play in an Class 4A state softball championship game for their dedicated mentor of four decades. First, however, they are focused on today's semifinal opponent from the East Suburban Catholic Conference. Marist (25-15) and Elk Grove (31-8) will be meeting for the first time in Grams' 32 seasons when they face off in at 2:30 p.m. semifinal at the Eastside Centre in East Peoria. The other semifinal at 5 p.m. features Bartlett (31-8) and defending 4A champ Moline (30-10).

  • St. Viator meets Marist’s challenge May 1, 2012 8:38 PM
    When St. Viator fell behind 9-1 in the opening game of Tuesdays boys volleyball match against perennial power Marist, it looked like it was going to be a long night for the host Lions. To be honest, said Viator senior Matt Michalik, I felt like this one was getting away from us. But the Lions refused to let the game slip away instead, in an inspired performance, they took control and shocked the visiting Redhawks 25-22, 15-25, 25-19 in an upset that approached David vs. Goliath proportions. Six-foot-3 senior middle hitter Tom Aichele led the way for the Lions with 7 kills in what St. Viator coach Chris Boylan called the most important victory for the program since 2005, when the team won a regional title.

  • Benet takes ESCC title outright Feb 6, 2011 12:33 AM
    Senior Night could not have been any sweeter for the eight seniors on Benet’s boys basketball team Saturday night. They clinched the East Suburban Catholic title outright with a 62-55 win over Marist in Lisle. Benet (24-0, 10-0) trailed 37-34 at the half as the Redhawks (12-9, 5-5) hit eight 3-pointers and that prompted Benet coach Gene Heidkamp to urge his team to close out better on the defensive end of the floor in the second half. “I told my team to play better defense in the second half and get a hand in the face of their shooters,” Heidkamp said. “We needed to get more stops. They made us pay in the first half for not contesting shots.” Benet did what Heidkamp asked and picked up its defensive intensity and quickly took control of the game early in the third quarter when the Redwings went on a 9-1 run to start the second half. Marist did not lead again the rest of the game, nor did it hit another 3-pointer the rest of the game. “We shot really well in the first half from distance,” Marist coach Gene Nolan said. “To knock down 8 in a half is outstanding. We are a good shooting team, but we did not expect to duplicate that in the second half. But to shoot as poorly as we did says a lot about Benet. They really got up on our guys.” The Redwings got a solid effort on the glass with two players reaching double-doubles; Frank Kaminsky had 12 points and 12 rebounds, and sophomore Pat McInerney had 12 points and 11 rebounds. McInerney, who usually starts, came off the bench since it was Senior Night, replaced by senior James Roemer, who chipped in with 11 points. “We knew this year was going to be really special,” McInerney said. “We have such great senior leadership and talent on this team. The seniors have really carried us all season. It makes it easy to play on this team.” Benet senior Matt Parisi scored a game-high 19 points in the win. Kaminsky also chipped in with 5 blocked shots and 5 assists.

  • St. Viator can’t pass Marist Jan 8, 2011 1:00 AM
    A rough third quarter put St. Viator in catchup mode in Friday night’s East Suburban Catholic Conference game with visiting Marist. The Lions were able to pull even but they never could get ahead as they fell 63-61 to Marist (12-6, 1-3) at Cahill Gym in Arlington Heights. “We did not play real good defense that (third) quarter,” said Viator coach Joe Majkowski after his team was outscored 23-10 to fall behind 48-38. “They’re super-quick and I thought we did a pretty good job in the first half. “They hit some tough shots and tough 3s but I feel we always should be able to defend that.” The Lions (9-4, 2-1) were able to tie it at 54-54 as Kevin Walsh (19 points) hit three straight 3s. But they came up empty on a last-second chance to pull out the win or force overtime. D.J. Morris scored 11 points and hit three 3s for Viator and Chris Myjak and Cameron Korab added 9 points apiece. The Lions have an ESCC game at Joliet Catholic at 7:30 p.m. today. Glenbrook North 56, Maine West 36: Maine West (9-5, 3-1) dropped the matchup for first place in the Central Suburban North at Glenbrook North (12-1, 4-0). Leyden 58, Willowbrook 40: Leyden (5-9, 2-2) won for just the second time in eight games in the West Suburban Gold game with visiting Willowbrook (0-13, 0-3).

  • Hoye, Maine West make their point Jan 8, 2011 1:00 AM
    With 6:15 left in the fourth quarter, Maine West’s Amanda Hoye tossed up a 10-footer from the baseline which hit the rim, and literally seemed glued to it for a full second. “I was scared, I didn’t know which way it would fall,” Hoye said. The 5-foot-5 junior point guard should have known she had little to worry about on this night. The ball finally fell promptly inside the net, just like 12 of her 14 shots in the game which gave her a career-high 25 points in the Warriors’ 59-45 triumph over visiting Glenbrook North (5-13, 1-4) on Friday night. Maine West improved to 5-14 and 4-1 in the Central Suburban North with its eyes still clearly looking toward a girls basketball conference title. Hoye’s 25-point effort, which included a 3-pointer in the second quarter, came on the heels of her previous career-high of 24 points against Regina in West’s last game at the Dundee-Crown Charger Classic. “Amanda has been playing much better the last few games,” said Maine West Hall of Fame coach Derril Kipp, now in his 30th season. “For every team, it all starts with the point guard.” Hoye started the Warriors’ scoring as she drove for a layup with 6:52 left in the opening quarter. A driving layup by freshman Brittany Collins gave the Warriors the lead for good at 11-10. Hoye found Collins moments for another layup and 13-10 lead. The lead increased to 17-10 on a 16-foot swish by Hoye and 10-foot jumper by Collins with 1:28 left in the first quarter. Collins finished with 14 points, 12 in the first half, and 9 rebounds. “It’s definitely exciting to have a tall person like Brittany inside,” said Hoye, who also had 5 assists and 3 steals. “She makes things easier for us. This win helps us a lot for conference because we can still win it if we continue to play well.” Hoye is always confident about playing well against Glenbrook North. “I like playing them because I am confident,” she said. “I remember a game as a sophomore when I had a career-high 14 points at Glenbrook North. So I always feel good playing them.” The Spartans came back to within 26-23 with 3:25 left in the first half, but West went on an 18-2 run to take control and allow Kipp to empty his bench. “When we were starting to come back, we missed three open layups and that’s a 6-point swing,” said Spartans coach Renee Brosnan. “Amanda Hoye hit everything from outside. She’s a great player and the freshman (Collins) was tough inside.” “We didn’t go to Brittany as much as we usually do,” Kipp said. “But she’s a force inside. This is the first game she’s had to play with some foul trouble.” After sophomore guard Sammie Von Rueden hit a 3-pointer and driving layup to get North to within 26-23, Collins’ rebound bank shot got the Warriors rolling to their 18-2 run. Senior Stephanie O’Neill hit back-to-back 3-pointers in the final 2:01 to give the Warriors a 34-23 lead at the break. Senior forward Katherine Kusner (5 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists) made sure their was no letdown when the Warriors returned to the floor, scoring on a driving layup less than a minute into the third quarter. Hoye then hit three of the next four baskets for West which led 44-25 with 3:38 left in the third period. “We have a new play in our offense against the zone defense,” Hoye said. “It helps us get more movement in the offense, which we had been lacking.” Kennelly, O’Neill and Nicole Burkhardt each finished with 3 rebounds. “We are playing much better and the younger kids are getting experience,” said Kipp, whose team started out 0-8. “I think we might get some more wins and surprise some people in the second half of the season. It’s great so far. We haven’t lost this year (2011) yet.” Marist 60, St. Viator 46: JeTaun Rouse is one of the top players in the Chicago area and the Marist sophomore guard showed why in Cahill Gymnasium on Friday night. In the first half, she used one hand to haul in an alley-oop pass and tossed it up against the backboard for a layup and 30-17 lead with 1:30 left in the first half. Then as the clock wound down, Rouse tossed in a half-court 3-pointer at the second-quarter buzzer to give the Marist a 37-21 lead at the break. Rouse finished with 23 points while teammate Leah Bolton added 22 as Marist won its 13th game and improved to 3-2 in the East Suburban Catholic. With 2:56 left in the first quarter, Viator public address announcer Tom Hohenadel said. “Entering the St. Viator lineup for the first time in five weeks, Taylor Skala”.” The Rockhurst University recruit made a steal and layup with 2:15 left in the first half for her first points since suffering a bad ankle sprain in the first quarter against Hofman Estates on Dec. 13 at the Cahill. The Lions, who visit Resurrection today at 7 p.m., are 10-8 and 1-2 in the ESCC.

  • Scouting Naperville North at Marist Oct 29, 2010 1:23 AM
    No. 9 Naperville North (6-3) at No. 8 Marist (6-3) Class 8A Game time: 7:30 p.m. today. Huskies fast fact: Fourteenth straight playoff appearance. RedHawks fast fact: Class 8A runner-up in 2009. Outlook: After battling through injuries and inconsistencies, Naperville North finds itself in the playoffs yet again under first-year coach Sean Drendel. Quarterback Matt LaCosse is the clear leader of the offense with 967 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns in addition to 713 passing yards and 4 touchdowns. Despite graduating quarterback Mike Perish and his 3,400 passing yards, Marist’s offense remains potent with more balance between the run and pass. Running back McKinley Moore rushed for 200 yards in last week’s win over St. Patrick while quarterback Luke Oosterbaan threw for nearly 300 the week before against Joliet Catholic when the RedHawks piled up 500 total yards. Naperville North’s defense has stiffened in recent weeks, and Boston College-bound linebacker Nick Lifka is a big reason why. Last week Lifka notched 15 tackles giving him 97 total tackles on the season, including 12 tackles for loss and returned a fumble for a touchdown. Advancement: Winner advances to play the winner between No. 16 Lockport (5-4) and No. 1 York (8-1).

  • Marists defense too much for St. Viator Oct 9, 2010 1:31 AM
    Marist has been known for its high-scoring offense the past few seasons, but Friday night the defense made a statement to the rest of the East Suburban Catholic with its performance against St. Viator. After allowing the Lions to score the first points of the game late in the first quarter on a 26-yard field goal by Will Solimene, the Redhawks’ defense went into shutdown mode enroute to a 35-10 victory with the only touchdown being scored after the game had already been decided. “The defense played well tonight, said Marist coach Pat Dunne. “They’ve played well all year. With the Marist defense locked in, the offense was able to reap the benefits of great field position, starting 7 of their 10 drives in St. Viator territory. Redhawks quarterback Luke Oosterbaan was the key to the offense both on the ground and through the air. The 5-foot-7 junior ran for 3 touchdowns and threw for 201 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. “We like to mix (the play calling) up, Oosterbaan said. “50-50. Keep the other team honest. I’m known more for my passing, but I ran hard tonight. Oosterbaan’s top target on the night was senior Alex Puhar who caught 7 passes for 127 yards. John Caraher caught Oosterbaan’s touchdown pass on a perfectly thrown ball over the head of the defender on first-and-10 from the 19-yard line. The bad breaks keep coming for the Lions. They were again without quarterback Cameron Korab, who sustained a concussion on the team’s last drive last week against Joliet Catholic. His replacement, Frank Laterza, led the team down field but couldn’t find the end zone. “We couldn’t put any points on the board, said coach Chris Kirkpatrick. “You can’t blame injuries. Everyone plays with injuries. I just told the guys to keep on pushing. St. Viator (4-3, 2-3 ESC) needs to win one more game to be eligible for the playoffs, while the Redhawks (5-1, 3-1 ESC) travel to Joliet Catholic next week in the hunt for a conference championship.
