  • Benet’s Paul taking many good memories into retirement Mar 6, 2014 9:54 PM
    Sincerity. Humility. Class. Oh, and 617 career victories. Those are among the hallmarks in the tenure of retiring Benet girls basketball coach Peter Paul, whose last game came in a Class 4A Joliet Central sectional semifinal loss, 54-37 to Neuqua Valley on Feb. 24.

  • Geneva losing a one-of-a-kind in retiring Lindenmuth Mar 1, 2014 9:51 PM
    As a female in the pre-Title IX era, raised on a farm in northeast Kansas, Nancy Lindenmuth didn’t get a lot of plate appearances until hitting the adult coed softball circuit. Working the last 15 years as an assistant to Geneva athletic director Jim Kafer has helped keep her in the game.

  • Lisle can do more than play baseball Feb 26, 2014 8:06 PM

  • Every detail concerns bowlers heading into sectionals Feb 13, 2014 11:32 PM

  • Reaber girls find the right spot Feb 12, 2014 9:44 PM
    Frank and Barb Reaber got it all figured out. Some parents drive hundreds of miles in opposite directions to watch their children compete in college. Bruce and Mary Kelsey’s daughters Kristen (Michigan State) and McKenna (Illinois) rarely frequented the same college volleyball court once they left St. Francis High School. The Reabers have three daughters all in one place.

  • McKeon heads Naperville North hall class Feb 5, 2014 11:12 PM
    Retired four years now, former Naperville North football coach Larry McKeon voices a lament common among his peers. “It’s funny,” he said, “how after years of coaching you remember the losses more than you remember the victories.” That’s how coaches think, perfectionists that they are. The reality is great coaches such as McKeon are remembered as winners.

  • Batavia’s Scaccia finds home at Butler Jan 31, 2014 9:31 PM
    Batavia running back Anthony Scaccia’s water bug style — stops and starts, lateral shiftiness, balance and low pad level, speed and more oomph than a 5-foot-7, 155-pound frame would suggest — humbled plenty of would-be tacklers last fall in the Bulldogs’ Class 6A championship football season.

  • Schmid looking for change in hall of fame career Jan 29, 2014 10:00 PM
    President. Principal. Dean. Chair. Director. Facilitator. Coach. Metea Valley principal Jim Schmid’s resume is peppered with titles of authority. It’s no wonder he played catcher and point guard at Aurora Central Catholic — athlete of the year in 1972 as a senior — and won 514 games as baseball coach at ACC, Aurora University and Waubonsie Valley. The man is a leader.

  • West Aurora honoring Ormond for 50 years of great calls Jan 23, 2014 11:10 PM
    In a compelling example of why we should listen to our parents, Neal Ormond was encouraged by his father to take up speech and debate in addition to athletics. The advice has paid off in a broadcasting career that since 1964 has seen Ormond call more than 1,500 West Aurora basketball games, over 450 football contests and more than 50 other miscellaneous events, sports and otherwise. He’s a mainstay at WBIG-1280 AM in Aurora.

  • Parpet brought toughness to Addison Trail Jan 22, 2014 10:07 PM

    It would be great if all of us could be as fortunate as Jean Field. On Tuesday at IC Catholic Prep’s girls volleyball awards dinner, Field announced her retirement after 39 years as the Knights’ coach.

  • Sanko decides it’s time for change Dec 11, 2013 6:30 PM
    There were times at Benedictine University and before that at Wilde Field, when Lisle football coach Dan Sanko stood incredulous and speechless. Other times he exploded in red-faced, blurting frustration. Disconsolate when the mistake was his, he claimed it humble and honest. He gave credit where credit was due. With a sly grin or hearty laugh he’d sling an arm around your shoulders as if for a noogie or a playful takedown — which as an assistant wrestling coach and a stocky, motorcycle-loving man’s man, he could easily do. His unifying trait over 17 seasons as Lisle’s football coach is he cared.

  • Batavia receives hero’s welcome Dec 5, 2013 8:15 PM
