    Montini stays calm, blows out NazarethFeb 25, 2014 12:00 AM
    It takes more than a good half of girls basketball to throw a scare into Montini. “It’s happened a lot,” Montini senior Kateri Stone said. “I think because we’re seniors now it helps that we’ve been in this situation before. So it’s our responsibility to keep everyone calm and then slowly turn the game around.” Nazareth’s good first half at the Class 3A Glenbard South sectional semifinals only served to remind the top-seeded Broncos they can’t take anyone for granted. The Broncos’ strong second half gave them a 70-44 victory Tuesday night in Glen Ellyn.

  • Brooks, prepared Nazareth prey on Carmel Jan 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    The Carmel boys basketball team is in the unusual position this season of being a team that is the hunted rather than the hunter. Off to its best start in nearly 30 years, the Corsairs have found of late that they can no longer sneak up on opposing teams. Even as the home team Friday night, visiting Nazareth was waiting for the Corsairs on senior night, and Roadrunners senior Michael Brooks and his teammates were ready. The visitors looked far more polished than their .500 record would indicate as they used a decisive 14-3 run late in the fourth quarter to hand Carmel a 56-47 loss in Mundelein.

  • Peloza powers Grayslake Central into state semis Jun 3, 2013 12:00 AM
    Perhaps Grayslake Central senior pitcher Kevin Peloza would benefit from some Ginkgo Biloba, a natural supplement used to enhance memory. “My memory is terrible,” Peloza said with a laugh when he was asked on Monday if he had ever before had a no-hitter. “I think I’ve had one before (in youth baseball). Well, maybe not. I’m not sure. I really don’t remember.” Chances are, Peloza, Ginkgo Biloba or not, won’t forget his latest, and possibly his first, no-hitter. It came in storybook fashion on one of the biggest possible stages for a high school pitcher.

    The Elgin girls basketball team had a chance Saturday to do something the Maroons haven't done in several years — win a championship.

  • Benet shows it’s the real deal Oct 5, 2012 12:00 AM
    Anyone still wondering if Benet football is for real? Friday might have been your reality check. The Redwings stunned everyone — including themselves — with Friday's 49-0 East Suburban Catholic Conference win over Nazareth at Lisle's Benedictine University. Six-foot-six sophomore quarterback Jack Beneventi shredded Nazareth's vaunted defense that next to Benet was the toughest ESCC team to score on heading into the game. Beneventi completed 13 of 17 passes for 300 yards and 4 touchdowns including a 55-yard touchdown to Jack Euritt on his final attempt two minutes into the third quarter.
