  • Burlington Central chalks up easy win Dec 16, 2013 12:00 AM
    By early in the second half, Rockford Christian had used all 13 players on its roster. None of them could stop Reed Hunnicutt. The Burlington Central senior had 12 points by halftime and the Rockets led 35-8. In fact, the only one who could stop Hunnicutt was Brett Porto. The Central coach gave Hunnicutt and the other starters the night off shortly after halftime. Even without them, the Rockets were well on their way to taming the Royal Lions, 57-34, in the Big Northern East boys basketball opener for both teams in Rockford Monday night.

    Burlington Central about to embark on the big-time Dec 14, 2013 12:00 AM
    Any basketball coach worth their salt does his or her best to play the most competitive schedule possible, especially in those years when they know they have special talent. Around the Fox Valley, most girls basketball teams — heck, not most but all — don’t have the luxury of year-in and year-out top talent like, say, Corry Irvin does at Whitney Young. So when that special team or group comes along, increasing the competitiveness of the regular-season schedule is paramount to getting your team ready for what you hope is a long postseason run.

    The students named to the Daily Herald Leadership Team sometimes amaze even those who know them best. "I have never seen a student do what Sally did last year ... (she) organized an entire school and literally an entire community to hold a Relay For Life," writes Jonathan Young, a counselor at Central High School on behalf of his nominee, Sally Heyob. The 39 members of the 2013-14 Fox Valley Leadership team, both winners and honorable mentions, have that kind of drive in common.

    Former heroin addict to give ECC graduation speech Dec 12, 2013 12:00 AM
    Sandra Hoston's life was on a downward spiral from years of abusing alcohol and heroin starting in her late teens. At 16, Hoston was pregnant with her first child. Soon after graduating from a Chicago high school, Hoston started hanging out with the wrong crowd and began abusing heroin to fit in. “I was addicted for 25 years,” said the now 51-year-old Elgin resident. Hoston went back to school in 2010 to get her associate degree in human services at Elgin Community College. Friday she will deliver the commencement speech during the college's graduation ceremony.

    Burlington Central upends Elgin Dec 10, 2013 12:00 AM
    Senior guard Reed Hunnicutt and the Burlington Central boys basketball team played the final four minutes of Tuesday’s 74-68 victory at Elgin’s Chesbrough Field House like they wanted to leave a lasting impression. Beginning with a jumper by Elgin senior Desmond Sanders with 16 seconds left in the third quarter, the Rockets and Maroons traded leads 10 times until they found themselves knotted at 59-59, courtesy of a 3-pointer by Elgin senior post Ryan Sitter. An immediate counter for a driving layup by Hunnicutt, who then sank 4 straight free throws on Central’s next 2 possessions, ignited a 10-2 run that helped the Class 3A Rockets improve to 6-1 with a quality road win against, arguably, the most athletic team they will face during the regular season.

  • Burlington Central downs Hampshire Dec 7, 2013 12:00 AM
    When expectations every night are high, and you’re well aware of your talent level, complacency may be the one thing you have to guard against most. Just ask the Burlington Central girls basketball team. The Rockets bolted out to a 29-14 lead on Hampshire at halftime Saturday night, extended it to 44-24 by the end of the third quarter, and then had what may have been their least productive fourth quarter of the season. But they came away with a 47-36 nonconference win on Pack the Place Night at Hampshire and to their coach, Mark Smith, the bottom line is the win.
