  • Quite a finish for Alexander, Conant Jan 31, 2015 9:02 PM
    As the early portion of the second day of the Mid-Suburban League’s wrestling championships continued at Hoffman Estates, Conant coach Chad Hay couldn’t help but notice that Barrington just kept on winning. Later on, when it mattered most, it was Hay’s own his team that couldn’t lose. Conant slowly erased a 26-point Broncos advantage, taking the lead for good with a nearly flawless finals performance to win the MSL tournament, and along with it a share of the overall conference title with Barrington. Conant outscored the MSL West champs 249-246 to capture a second consecutive tournament title in thrilling fashion. MSL East champ Prospect finish third in the tourney with 214.5 overall points.

  • Fremd student charged with sending offensive email Jan 30, 2015 5:05 PM
    Palatine police Friday charged a Fremd High School senior with disorderly conduct after he confessed to having sent an email message containing an offensive image to student email accounts at both Fremd and Palatine high schools Tuesday, authorities said.

  • Fremd wins MSL meet; Prospect’s Gonzalez claims all-around Jan 30, 2015 11:22 PM
    Prospect’s Olivia Gonzalez entered the Mid-Suburban League girls gymnastic meet as a wild card. The Knights senior left as an ace. Gonzalez, who has been dealing with a back injury for most of the season, certainly wasn’t affected by it on Friday night in rolling to the all-around title in tough field with a 37.60. “She dominated,” said Prospect coach Randy Smith of Gonzalez all-around effort. “She’s been dealing with back issues and it just shows what type of competitor she is.” Fremd may have not dominated, but the Vikings definitely did enough to get the job done, rolling to its 22nd MSL title with 146.15 points at Hersey’s Ken Carter Gymnasium in Arlington Heights.

  • Fremd salutes seniors, secures MSL West tie Jan 31, 2015 1:00 AM
    Senior night was a big success for Fremd’s state-ranked girls basketball team as the Vikings clinched at least a tie for its sixth straight Mid-Suburban League West championship. Fremd improved to 20-4 and 8-0 with a 58-37 victory over visiting Schaumburg.

  • Barrington’s seniors step it up Jan 30, 2015 10:11 PM
    It was senior night Friday for the Barrington boys swim team, and how coincidental that it was the seniors that provided the depth that led the Broncos to a 125-61 victory over Palatine. Sure, underclassmen like Colin Cross and Colin O’Leary had big nights, each winning two events and helping Barrington win two of three relays. But it was hard to ignore the work put in by Broncos seniors like Matt Gouskos, who won the 50 freestyle in 23.36 and was the anchor on Barrington’s 200 medley relay B team that took second in 1:44.50. Then there was Chase Lesniak, who joined Gouskos and Andy Zhou and Jeremy Kleinjan on that 200 medley relay, and also took second in the 100 breaststroke (1:04.59). Gouskos and Lesniak also paired with John Lagoni and Matt Gersten to place second in the 200 freestyle relay in 1:33.62, just behind teammates Cross, Brandon Schaff, Andrew Fish and Mitchell Gavars, who won in 1:32.88.

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
