  • A special game for Benet's Gerken Feb 13, 2015 11:33 PM
    The Benet boys basketball team’s senior night is Saturday night, but Friday’s home game against Nazareth still had extra importance to senior reserve Sean Gerken. The 6-foot-5 Gerken lives in Western Springs and attended St. John of the Cross, a feeder school for the East Suburban Catholic Conference high school in nearby LaGrange Park. “I know a couple of the guys on the team, so it’s a little fun to win the rivalry, get a little bragging rights,” Gerken said. “(But) it’s just like any other game, really — a conference game, just hoping to win and help the team out.”

    Love may not have been in the air during Saturday’s penalty-plagued Class 6A semifinal between St. Francis and Nazareth, but Love certainly found the end zone. Nazareth's Julian Love scored on 29- and 27-yard catches, a 22-yard interception return and a 93-yard kickoff return as No. 1 seed Nazareth ended No. 6 St. Francis’ magical season 56-28 in LaGrange Park.

  • Nazareth surpasses Willowbrook Jul 17, 2014 10:34 PM
    As the innings clicked by, so did Willowbrook’s missed opportunities. Nazareth’s baseball team ultimately took advantage by pulling away to Thursday’s 7-2 victory over the Warriors at the Fenwick regional final in the IHSBCA summer state tournament in River Forest.

  • Glenbard West gets serious May 28, 2014 1:01 AM
    About the time Nazareth Academy took a 5-4 lead in Game 2 of Tuesday’s Glenbard West regional semifinal, the host Hilltoppers became noticeably more serious about the match.

  • Benet scores 15 in first to clinch ESCC May 21, 2014 9:35 PM
    By the end of the first inning, Benet’s baseball team left little doubt about its motivation level to remain East Suburban Catholic Conference champions. A 15-run bottom of the first — yes, 15 runs — powered the Redwings to Wednesday’s 17-7 five-inning victory over visiting Nazareth to clinch back-to-back ESCC titles for the first time in program history.

  • Good news for Carmel: A win, and Behan’s OK May 7, 2014 10:10 PM
    Carmel could breathe a sigh of relief Wednesday. First, the Corsairs learned that Jenny Behan suffered “only” what the junior called a left elbow injury during Tuesday’s game at Johnsburg. Then, Carmel held on to beat visiting Nazareth Academy 6-5, avenging an 11-4 defeat two days earlier, in East Suburban Catholic Conference action.

  • Montini stays calm, blows out Nazareth Feb 25, 2014 11:23 PM
    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.

  • Wheaton Academy runs out of power against Nazareth Feb 21, 2014 11:25 PM
    A power outage on Thursday turned the Class 3A Timothy Christian girls basketball regional final between the Wheaton Academy Warriors and the Nazareth Academy Roadrunners into a two-part series. Near the start of the fourth quarter Thursday night — with the Roadrunners (18-11) up 44-28 — the outage stopped play for the night, to be resumed Friday afternoon. The 16-point deficit was too much for the Warriors to overcome in the 7:07 left on the clock, and Nazareth took the game 58-41. Despite the 15-point final difference the Warriors (16-9) made it interesting, cutting the lead to 8 with 1:16 remaining thanks to a 3-pointer from Jaimie Netzley and four free throws from Marissa Gagliano. “(We wanted to) just come out and finish,” said Warriors coach Beth Mitchell. “We’ve got seven minutes, seven seconds to try and chip away at the lead and we wanted to play physical and play hard, and I think the girls came out and did that and we were able to cut it to eight. Naz is a great team, I think they’ll do really well in the sectional.” The Roadrunners missing some crucial free throws in the fourth gave Wheaton Academy some life, but Nazareth got its act together once the Warriors started fouling, putting away the much-needed points. “I told them that we’re going be in a position that we’re gonna be on the free-throw line and we’re going to have to make more than 50 percent and we actually shot 50 percent,” said Nazareth coach Kim Connell. “So everything I was worried about that could happen in seven minutes actually happened. But we did what we needed to do to win the game.” In the first half Nazareth took the lead with the game’s first basket with 5:22 remaining in the first quarter and it held the lead for the remainder of the game. The two teams went into halftime with the Roadrunners up 24-18, but the game was still there for the taking, until Nazareth’s third-quarter performance, that is. The Roadrunners dropped 18 points in the third and held Wheaton Academy to only 7 points. Nazareth dropped three 3-pointers and had the defensive effort being led by senior Tetre’Anah Cross, who ended with 15 points in the game. “It was tough match,” Cross said, “but I know we just had to play physical and I know we just had to front the post and I know my teammates were going to help me if they tried to go over the top, so you know we just attacked them that way.”

  • Benet’s O’Mara passes 1,500-point mark in win Feb 14, 2014 11:54 PM
    Senior center Sean O’Mara scored 25 points to surpass 1,500 on the varsity and Benet used a huge third quarter to put away host Nazareth Academy 66-45 in front of a raucous boys basketball crowd Friday night.

  • Brooks, prepared Nazareth prey on Carmel Jan 31, 2014 10:53 PM
    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.
