  • Girls gymnastics: Scouting the MSL meet Jan 29, 2015 4:15 PM
    Fremd and Barrington are expected to battle it out for the Mid-Suburban League girls gymnastics title on Friday at Hersey. Both have proven themselves to be among the elite teams in the state.

  • Another winning blend for Palatine Jan 29, 2015 10:05 PM
    Perhaps Hoffman Estates coach Luke Yanule said it best. “They’re on a roll. They’ve really got good chemistry,” he said of Palatine, which had just dismantled his Hawks 73-48 in an MSL West game Thursday night at Hoffman Estates. The “chemistry” formula is working well. The Pirates’ sixth straight win, yet another in convincing style, had them jumping ahead 16-0 and 24-4 after the first quarter. The lead got as wide as 34 at 61-27 in the third quarter. And it’s defense as the catalyst in that potent mix for Palatine (17-6, 4-3).

  • Palatine police investigating explicit email sent to students Jan 29, 2015 3:24 PM
    Palatine-Schaumburg High School District 211 Superintendent Dan Cates sent an email to parents Thursday addressing a “graphic and offensive image” emailed anonymously to possibly all students at Palatine and Fremd high schools Tuesday evening. Though the “offensive nude image” was not pornographic, officials said it was inappropriate both because it was disseminated through the school district’s email system and because it was sent to students.

  • Wrestling: Scouting the MSL and ESCC meets Jan 28, 2015 4:26 PM
    Here's a look ahead to this weekend's Mid-Suburban League wrestling championships, to be hosted by Hoffman Estates on Friday and Saturday. Prospect, Conant and Barrington are each in the running for the overall MSL title.

  • Prospect able to repeat 20-victory feat Jan 28, 2015 12:22 AM
    Not since coach Jean Walker’s 21-8 and 20-7 seasons in 1989 and 1990 had Prospect’s girls basketball team put together back-to-back 20 win seasons. But that changed on Tuesday night at Buffalo Grove where the Knights posted a 66-44 triumph that improved their record to 20-1 overall and 7-0 in the Mid-Suburban East.

  • Hersey grabs second place in own invitational Jan 24, 2015 10:19 PM
    hersey produced their top finish since 1990 in the boys swimming invitational it hosted at Olympic Pool in Arlington Heights on Saturday, scoring 369.5 points to place just behind winner Deerfield (377). Michael Petro turned in victories in the 200-yard IM (1:58.42) and 100 fly (54.77) to lead the way for Hersey.

  • Palatine helps tighten up MSL West race Jan 24, 2015 10:15 PM
    Palatine has put the Mid-Suburban West on notice: The Pirates will be a factor in the title chase as the division enters the second round. Palatine came from behind Saturday to beat No. 7 Barrington 79-75 in front of a spirited home crowd. In winning its fifth game in a row, including one over No. 11 Lake Zurich last week the Pirates ran their record to 16-6 and threw the West into a 3-way tie among the Broncos, Conant and Fremd, all at 4-2 in the West. Palatine is a game back at 3-3.

  • Blackwell comes up big as Schaumburg bounces Palatine Jan 24, 2015 12:29 AM
    Schaumburg senior Jada Blackwell scored 9 of her team-high 13 points in overtime as the Saxons pulled out a 40-37 girls basketball victory over visiting Palatine in Mid-Suburban West play on Friday. Blackwell had a big 3-pointer in the extra session along with 4 free throws and a basket while classmate Brittany Reinhart also made a free throw as the hosts outscored the Pirates 10-7 in the extra four minutes.

  • Fremd, Palatine lining up with plenty at stake Jan 22, 2015 3:49 PM
    Palatine boys swimming coach John Schauble has been puzzling over potential dual meet lineups for Friday afternoon’s meet against Fremd long enough to know that there’s no way to guarantee the outcome he’s after. He’s sought hypothetical lineups for his own team from a variety of sources, including one from his own swimmers. “I’ve been working on the lineup for like two weeks,” he said with a chuckle. The main reason for that is Fremd’s extraordinary depth. While the teams match up fairly evenly across the top two swimmers in most events, the Vikings have a decisive edge in third-swimmer depth. There’s plenty at stake, as both teams are unbeaten against their MSL West foes to date.

  • Numbers favor West leader Fremd Jan 24, 2015 12:08 AM
    The Fremd boys swim team has a decided numbers advantage over much of its Mid-Suburban West Division brethren. That means it can turn on the jets when it needs to and pull away, leaving opponents in its wake, literally and figuratively. It happened again Friday, as the Vikings used that depth to defeat host and crosstown rival Palatine 101-85 on the Pirates’ senior night. Fremd, now 7-1 in dual meets, took three of the top four spots in five events, and went 1-2 in two of them.

  • Richae, Hoffman Estates lead a winning battle Jan 22, 2015 9:19 PM
    Mid-Suburban League girls bowlers were competing for a cure Thursday night at Arlington Lanes. While rolling their usual conference matches, the MSL players were also bowling for the fight against epilepsy. “In addition to showing awareness,” said Hoffman Estates coach Dan Pfligler, “the teams were raising money for the cause. All of the teams were wearing a ‘Bowl for the Cure – Strike Against Epilepsy’ t-shirt, and many people were supporting by not only wearing the shirts but also making donations. Meanwhile, on the lanes, the Hawks continued to excel. Hoffman Estates defeated Buffalo Grove 7-2, led by sophomore Amanda Richae, who excelled at Wednesday’s meet by rolling a 699 series — the best in the league so far this year.

  • Two more wins for Palatine at Lake Zurich Jan 20, 2015 12:08 AM
    Palatine’s boys basketball team won twice on Monday in MLK tournament play at Lake Zurich to complete a 4-1 run, giving the Pirates their sixth win in their last seven games. On Monday at Lake Zurich, Palatine first beat Streamwood 67-57, then handled Marian Central 78-40. Lake Zurich, Vernon Hills, Palatine and Niles North all finished the tournament at 4-1, but Lake Zurich won the tie-breaker and thus the tournament title on point differential after a 71-54 victory over Vernon Hills late Monday.

  • Lake Zurich outduels Grayslake North at Palatine Jan 17, 2015 6:00 PM
    They saved the best wrestling meet for last Saturday at the Palatine megaduals. Trailing Grayslake North 25-9 with six matches to go, Lake Zurich made a dramatic late comeback to capture an exciting 32-28 nonconference victory over the Knights and cap off a 3-0 day. The Bears (15-6) opened the day with a lopsided 54-15 victory over West Chicago (13-14), before posting a similar 57-18 win over short-handed St. Charles North (3-12) in the second round. Despite also being at less than full strength, Carmel (6-13) managed to go 2-1 on the day, as the Corsairs fell to Grayslake North (12-9) 48-24, before beating West Chicago 35-30 and nipping St. Charles North 27-26 on a forfeit victory in the last match.

  • Palatine presses past Lake Zurich Jan 17, 2015 11:27 PM
    It was written right on the scouting report. So it really wasn’t a surprise what the Palatine boys basketball team was of able to do to host Lake Zurich on Saturday night at the Martin Luther King tournament. “We knew they were never out of it,” Lake Zurich coach Billy Pitcher said of Palatine. “I put that in the scouting report. We talked about their Barrington game. Our guys knew all about it.” Palatine has made a habit this season of cutting down big deficits. In a game against Barrington, the Pirates slashed a 36-point deficit to 4 points but weren’t quite able to get over the hump. Over the holidays, they were able to complete the job, erasing a 13-point deficit to defeat Oswego. This time, they were down by as many as 11 points to Lake Zurich in the second half. Thanks to a pressure defense that forced 9 Lake Zurich turnovers in the fourth quarter alone, Palatine added another comeback victory to its resume, 65-60 over Lake Zurich.

  • Palatine powers past Elgin Jan 17, 2015 5:58 PM
    As efficiently as Palatine played Saturday afternoon in its 84-49 win over Elgin at the Lake Zurich MLK Tournament, the Pirates know they have to play better. Palatine (12-6) was gearing up for a 7 p.m. prime-timer later in the day against the host Bears, a tall, slick-shooting bunch who ran Carmel off the floor earlier in this two-game-a-day event that carries into Monday. The Pirates showed they were ready to compete against a game but outmanned Elgin (5-12) squad. Palatine ran out to a 45-17 halftime lead on the strength of forcing 16 turnovers out of the Maroons and shooting the lights out. Justin Chaney (15 points) did his usual thing from the perimeter, complemented by R.J. Smith and Michael E. Williams, who dominated the inside game. Smith’s steal and 3-point play closed the first quarter at 21-7 for the Pirates.

  • Mickey, Rolling Meadows muster up a big win Jan 17, 2015 12:50 AM
    Hannah Mickey scored a career-high 19 points to help the Rolling Meadows girl basketball team get past visiting Buffalo Grove 51-37 on Friday night. The junior forward had 9 field goals, at least two in every quarter as the Mustangs improved to 14-5 and 2-3 in the Mid-Suburban East.

  • Rolling Meadows times it right at Buffalo Grove Jan 17, 2015 12:50 AM
    It’s safe to say Rolling Meadows very much enjoyed its first visit to Buffalo Grove’s new pool, where the Mustangs claimed a 135-50 victory Friday to remain undefeated in Mid-Suburban East boys swimming. The standout efforts for Meadows included a 59.30 in the 100-yard breaststroke from senior Jake Barson, along with a 2:02.56 in the 200 IM.

  • Conant fends off Palatine’s late surge Jan 16, 2015 10:39 PM
    Palatine coach Mark Johnson said he “couldn’t be prouder of my girls” after the Pirates lost a hard-fought MSL West basketball game Friday night at Conant. Cougars coach Deirdre Naughton, meanwhile, felt her team was fortunate to escape with a victory. It was almost impossible to tell who won and who lost after home-standing Conant edged Palatine 43-39 at William N. Perry gymnasium in Hoffman Estates.

  • Conant topples Palatine Jan 15, 2015 10:41 PM
    Conant had the hot hand Thursday night at Palatine in a Mid-Suburban West boys basketball matchup. The Cougars shot 68 percent from the field and 81 percent (18-for-22) from the free throw line while defeating Palatine 56-46 to notch their sixth win in a row. One of the hottest hands belonged to senior Chris Dolce, who hit two sizzling 3-point baskets in the third quarter to turn back a run by the Pirates.

  • Conant keeps pace in MSL West Jan 11, 2015 12:13 AM
    Conant’s girls basketball team remained one game out of first place in the Mid-Suburban West by defeating host Barrington 49-36 on Saturday night. The Cougars used balanced scoring to improve to 12-2 and 3-1 in the MSL West behind five-time defending champ Fremd (4-0).
