  • Impressive debut for Buffalo Grove Aug 18, 2014 8:55 PM
    For the first time since he took over the program eight years ago, Buffalo Grove girls golf coach Matt Meyer’s watched his Bison win a championship just one day into the season. The Bison captured Monday’s annual Early Bird Invite hosted by Conant at the Fox Run Golf Course in Elk Grove by 6 strokes over Class AA defending state champ Prospect 339-345. “We have a lot of new faces in the program,” said Myers, whose team graduated four of its top six players. “But a lot of the new ones stepped up.”

  • Powell helps power Barrington to state Legion title Aug 2, 2014 8:53 PM
    Brad Powell almost did not play American Legion baseball this summer. “I came out at the last minute,” said Powell, who had planned to golf (scratch handicap) this summer. “But I really wanted to be with the guys. I knew this team was something and I could not leave it.” Barrington Post 158 is also glad Powell decided to stay with baseball. Especially on Saturday, when he came in to pitch four scoreless innings and belt a pair of hits to help lead Barrington to Illinois’ American Legion state championship with a 10-7 victory over Galesburg Post 285.

  • Surging Barrington in Legion state finals Aug 2, 2014 1:18 PM
    After picking up the pitching win Wednesday night, Barrington’s Scott Nelson used his bat on Friday to help his team advance to today’s finals of the Illinois American Legion state finals. Nelson turned a 10-pitch at-bat into a RBI double in the sixth inning to help spark a 2-run outburst as Barrington Post 158 topped Galesburg Post 285, 4-2, Friday at Recreation Park in Arlington Heights. Barrington (40-7), which has now won 14 in a row and 32 of its last 33 games, will play in the finals of the double elimination tournament at 11 a.m. today.

  • Mixed results for local teams Jul 31, 2014 11:45 PM
    Area teams went in three different directions on the second day of the Illinois State Legion tournament at Recreationan Park in Arlington Heights on Thursday. Barrington Post 158 was a winner and stayed unbeaten in the winner’s bracket of the double elimination tournament. Northwest Post 690 dropped a 1-run decision and moved into the loser’s bracket while Arlington Post 208 lost for the second time in two days and was eliminated. Northwest pitcher Dylan Roskin went 8 strong innings, allowing only 4 hits. But the Schaumburg graduate was let down by his teammates in key moments as Galesburg Post 385 won 4-3. “It was just a dogfight out there until the end,” said Roskin, who will be attending Miami of Ohio and hopes to walk on to the baseball team. “My teammates had me and were making plays. We just had a couple of small mistakes and they made us pay for them.” Roskin had trouble locating the strike zone to start the game, throwing six of his first seven pitches for balls. So co-head coach Kevin Miller trotted out to the mound to talk to the left-hander. “I just told him to breath,” Miller said. “I stood in front of him and had him take a deep breath. I then told him that his game was no different from any other.” Roskin got the message, retiring the next 12 batters. Meanwhile, Northwest (25-8-1) was able to build a 2-0 lead as Patrick O’Malley singled twice, stole two bases and scored once on a RBI single by his brother Adam and the other time on a wild pitch. “I was able to get on base and move around a bit,” Patrick O’Malley said. “I was just trying to scrap ways to score.” Galesburg (35-15), which will meet Barrington in the winner’s bracket game at 3 p.m. today, came back to tie the game in the sixth inning. Drew Claeys had a 2-run single scoring Logan Davis, who reached on an error and Todd Matz, who reached on an infield single. Northwest regained the lead in the seventh when Brandon Cortez doubled to lead off the inning. He moved to third on Adam O’Malley’s ground out to third and scored on a wild pitch to make it 3-2. But another error by Northwest in the bottom of the seventh led to Galesburg’s final 2 runs. Todd Matz reached on an error and Drake Sykes was intentionally walked. With two outs, Carson Cheesman tripled to the right field wall, putting Galesburg up for good. Northwest will play Swansea/Fairview Heights Posts 2007/978 at 11 a.m. today. The winner of that game will play the loser of Barrington-Galesburg at 7 p.m. “Dylan pitched hard for us today,” Miller said. “We are just going to have to come back tomorrow and win in the morning and then again later.” Fairview Hts. 6, Arlington 4: Host Arlington was eliminated after losing its second game in less than 16 hours. “We needed more pressure games and I think it showed up in the tournament,” said Arlington coach Lloyd Meyer, whose team finished 35-6 for the year. “We just didn’t hit very well.” Joe Silva and Alex Niecikowski each had 2 hits for Arlington. Barrington 14 Mattoon 3: Barrington took care of business in just seven innings to advance in the winner’s bracket to play Galesburg at 3 p.m. today. Barrington, which has won 13 in a row and 31 of its last 32 games, knocked out 10 hits. Six of them were for extra bases. Mitch Pfeiffer doubled and scored 2 runs, Dan Kubiuk had a triple and scored 3 times, Jared Ludwig, Anthony Lombardi and Quentin Sefick each had a double. Scott Nelson struck out three while picking up the win, and he also had a 3-run triple. Friday’s Games: Northwest Post vs. Swansea/Fairview Heights Post 11 a.m.; Barrington Post 158 vs. Galesburg Post 385, 3 p.m.; Winner Game 1 vs. loser Game 2, 7 p.m.

    Ahern Ludwig and Barrington tamed Arlington 3-1 in the opening round of the Illinois American Legion baseball state tournament at Recreation Park in Arlington Heights on Wednesday. Ludwig kept Arlington Post 208 off balance with his fastball, and Barrington Post 158 came up with just enough offense to move into Thursday’s semifinals of the winner’s bracket in the double-elimination tournament.

  • Rec Park plays host to Legion state tourney Jul 29, 2014 4:56 PM

  • Barrington joins Arlington, Northwest in Legion state tourney Jul 26, 2014 6:41 PM
    Barrington’s Daniel Kubiuk really knows how to close things out. Kubiuk, who was the closer on his high school team this spring, demonstrated in Barrington on Saturday that he can start and close in the same game. Kubiuk threw 8-plus innings of 4-hit baseball as Barrington rolled past Elgin 7-1 in the Division 2 American Legion title game in Barrington. It was the 29th win in the last 30 games for Barrington Post 158 (37-7) and the outcome sent them to the state tournament for the first time since 2009. They will play host Arlington Heights, which won the Division 1 tournament, at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Recreation Park; Northwest Legion, featuring players from Elk Grove and Palatine, also earned a spot in the state tourney field.
