  • Libertyville tops N. Chicago, secures playoff berth Oct 17, 2014 11:15 PM
    With the Class 7A football playoffs in sight, visiting Libertyville needed to further motivation in pursuit of win No. 6 on Friday night at North Chicago. And the Wildcats got the job done as they jumped out to a commanding 24-0 lead after one quarter before ultimately rolling to a 51-8 North Suburban Conference crossover victory against the Warhawks. Libertyville (6-2) clinched a berth to the state playoffs for the second time in three years as it led 37-6 at halftime, and 51-6 over North Chicago (0-8) after three quarters.

  • Special victory for Antioch Oct 11, 2014 9:05 PM
    When Antioch’s football team has had its best seasons, it’s been because of all three phases of the game — offense, defense and special teams. When the Sequoits have struggled in the past, the special teams haven’t been very special. This season, the Sequoits’ special teams have been special. Junior Griffin Hill has been a big reason why, while Antioch has also wreaked havoc in the punting game with as many as four blocked punts this season. So when both Hill and the special teams got revved up on a homecoming Saturday at North Chicago, the already overmatched Warhawks were up against it in the North Suburban Prairie Division game. Hill took the opening kick 84 yards for the touchdown and added 3 rushing touchdowns, as the Sequoits routed winless North Chicago 72-7. With its sixth win on the season, Antioch (6-1, 4-0) clinched a playoff berth for the fifth time since Brian Glashagel took over as head coach in 2007.

  • Greer’s clutch effort helps Orr deny North Chicago Mar 18, 2014 11:17 PM
    Shot in the leg less than two weeks ago, Chicago Orr basketball player Tyquone Greer was expected to be done for the season. The senior was in uniform for Tuesday night’s Class 3A Hoffman Estates supersectional, and when the game was on the line, Greer was on the court. He made the most of his opportunity. Greer sank a 3-pointer with three seconds left on the clock — his only basket of the night — lifting Orr to a 71-68 win over North Chicago. Orr (25-4) will meet Morgan Park at 2:15 p.m. Friday in a state semifinal at the Civic Center in Peoria.

  • North Chicago stops Grayslake Central Mar 7, 2014 11:15 PM
    Alex Lennartz was one of several Grayslake Central seniors who didn’t want to their seasons come to and end on Friday night. Lennartz had been through a lot this year, including a broken nose and a concussion. He showed he could dish out shots, too, leading the Rams with 22 points and 10 rebounds — but it wasn’t enough for the Rams on this evening. Grayslake Central stayed close to North Chicago for three quarters before the top-seeded Warhawks prevailed over the No. 8 Rams 71-53 in Class 3A regional championship play in Grayslake.

  • Good times continue for NSC champ Stevenson Feb 26, 2014 11:28 PM
    Even “Mr. Crabby Pants” couldn’t be too crabby on Wednesday night. What was there to growl or groan about? Behind yet another spectacular performance by junior guard Jalen Brunson, Stevenson was in top form (or pretty darn close to it) in mowing down host North Chicago 98-68 in front of a packed gym in the North Suburban Conference boys basketball championship game. “Well, we could have rebounded better, and in the first half, we didn’t do defensive transition real well,” said Stevenson coach Pat Ambrose, who calls himself Mr. Crabby Pants for his never-satisfied mentality. “But you know me, I’m never entirely happy. I would say we were clicking, but maybe not on all cylinders.” The Warhawks, who have now lost to Stevenson in the conference title game for two years in a row, may argue otherwise. They watched Stevenson (26-1) have its way on their home floor. The Patriots, who hit 64 percent of their shots from the field, got a game-high 39 points (including three 3-pointers) from Brunson.

  • This one adds up to a regulation win for Vernon Hills Feb 24, 2014 11:05 PM
    Always the math teacher, coach Paul Brettner figured since his Vernon Hills girls basketball team and North Chicago averaged two overtime periods in two regular-season games, a third contest would yield a similar result. “I figured that’s where we were headed,” Brettner said. Considering how clutch Sydney Smith and Lauren Webb have been in their four-year varsity careers, it figures that Vernon Hills is headed to another Class 3A sectional final. Behind Smith’s game-high 29 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals, 3 blocks and 3 assists and Webb’s 23 points and 5 boards, top-seeded Vernon Hills outlasted No. 4 North Chicago 66-56 at Ridgewood in another tightly contested battle between the two North Suburban Conference Prairie Division squads. Vernon Hills (25-5) will seek its third sectional championship in a row Thursday at 7 p.m. when it faces No. 3 Carmel (23-8) at Ridgewood.
