  • Prairie Ridge downs Crystal Lake South Sep 20, 2013 12:00 AM
    Crystal Lake South football coach Chuck Ahsmann knew Prairie Ridge had the big play possibility in its arsenal and the major difference in simulating the triple option all week in practice was seeing it live. The Wolves were live Friday and South mostly did its part on defense, holding Prairie Ridge to 272 total yards, 11 first downs and 2 scores on 12 chances. But it was offensively where the Gators’ woes continued. South, which came in with only 4 offensive touchdowns in its previous 3 games, needed 47 minutes to finally reach the end zone in a 14-9 loss to rival Prairie Ridge Friday.

  • St. Charles East claims title at Prairie Ridge Sep 14, 2013 12:00 AM
    If the girls volleyball programs that took part in Saturday’s Prairire Ridge Invite lined up the state trophies they’ve won since 2000 alone, the hardware would stretch from sideline to sideline. Cary-Grove, St. Charles East, Crystal Lake Central, Prairie Ridge and Barrington have won 14 state trophies combined over the past 13 years, including 3 state titles and seven runner-up finishes. After 5 matches of round-robin play over seven hours, St. Charles East stood above a field of state powers. The Saints finished 4-1, as did Crystal Lake Central and Prairie Ridge, but St. Charles East won the invite title based on best winning percentage. The Saints won 9 of 11 sets. Prairie Ridge won 9 of 13 sets to place second and CL Central won 8 of 13 to take third.

  •  Head coach Vito Andriola watches his Dundee-Crown football team at a recent practice.

    FVC Valley wide open, but don’t count out Cary-Grove Aug 26, 2013 12:00 AM
    It’s probably not a good idea to sell the Cary-Grove football team short. Despite graduating a large portion of last year’s team that reached the Class 6A state title game, third-year coach Brad Seaburg is far from waving a white flag for the defending Fox Valley Conference Valley Division champions. “We have the athleticism and we’re starting to see some leadership emerging,” he said of his junior-heavy lineup. “On paper and after seeing what we’ve seen in practice with our enthusiasm, effort and execution so far, we feel like we should be able to compete for a conference championship, for sure.”

    Underdog Dundee-Crown does it again May 29, 2013 12:00 AM
    The Dundee-Crown baseball team administered another round of shock treatment to the IHSA Class 4A playoff bracket Wednesday. An underdog once again, the surging Chargers (11-18) erupted for 10 first-inning runs and were never threatened in a 15-4 dismantling of league rival Prairie Ridge (25-11) in a Huntley sectional semifinal. "We love being the underdog," D-C junior Zach Girard said. "We like people doubting us. Then we come out and prove them wrong. And we're going to keep doing it." Winners of three straight for only the second time this season, the Chargers advance to Saturday's 11 a.m. sectional title game against the winner of today's semifinal between District 300 rival Jacobs (23-11) and Hononegah (23-8). It marks Dundee-Crown's first appearance in a sectional title game since former coach Fred Bencriscutto's 2007 squad qualified for the Class AA state finals.

     
  • Richter, Drain bring the pain as PR stops Grant May 21, 2013 12:00 AM
    Mighty Maddie Drain delivered pain. Her Prairie Ridge softball teammate Marissa Richter provided a different kind of hurt an earlier inning. Leading off the bottom of the second inning of Tuesday’s Class 4A Grant regional semifinal, the 6-foot-2 Drain smacked a line drive that caught Grant pitcher Caitlyn Moran flush on the right thigh. The softball was sure to leave a mark of black-and-blue variety. For Moran, her pain wasn’t season-ending. When approached by the home-plate umpire to see if she was OK, the wounded ace, determined to keep playing, gave him a thumbs-up. In the first inning, Richter had touched Moran for a 3-run homer, propelling regional top seed Prairie Ridge to a 4-0 over No. 4 Grant in Fox Lake.

    Scary moment in Cary-Grove’s win over Prairie Ridge Apr 22, 2013 12:00 AM
    There's really only one word to describe the moment. Scary. Cary-Grove defeated Prairie Ridge 3-1 Monday afternoon in a Fox Valley Conference Valley Division softball game in Cary.

    Huntley, McHenry graciously share county crown Apr 20, 2013 12:00 AM
    Huntley and McHenry were well suited to split the 2013 McHenry County Boys Track and Field Meet title in Cary Saturday. “It’s great that we tied,” Huntley relay anchor Mike Dollar said. “We both competed really hard. I have a lot of buddies on McHenry and I have since middle school.” Once the meet concluded athletes from both programs posed together with the trophy. Even the chummy coaches seemed satisfied with the split decision of a meet delayed two days by bad weather, though both expressed some surprise at the outcome.

    Cary-Grove girls make it 5 straight county titles Apr 20, 2013 12:00 AM
    Cary-Grove’s drive for five didn’t come easy. The Trojans edged Huntley by 7 points to win their fifth consecutive McHenry County Girls Track and Field Meet on a crisp Saturday in Cary, and they did so by navigating potholes. Sophomore Morgan Schulz tweaked an ankle in warm-ups and had to pull out of the 800-meter relay, which finished second only to Huntley. The Trojans relinquished points in the day’s second race when the 400-meter relay team dropped the baton and finished sixth.

     
  • Prairie Ridge hands No. 1 Huntley 1st loss Apr 20, 2013 12:00 AM
    Huntley’s baseball team produced enough runs to win Saturday. But in the end, the Red Raiders’ season-opening winning streak of 13 came to an abrupt halt because of shoddy defense and pitching. Hindered by 4 errors and 8 walks combined from pitchers Bryce Only and Tommy Regan, the No. 1 Red Raiders absorbed their first loss of the season, 9-7, to Prairie Ridge in a Fox Valley Conference Valley Division contest in Huntley.

     
  • Skonieczny’s 3 HRs, 8 RBI lead unbeaten Huntley Apr 19, 2013 12:00 AM
    Huntley junior catcher Mark Skonieczny had a forgettable start to an unforgettable game Friday at Prairie Ridge. Teammate Jake Wagner didn’t let Skonieczny forget about it after the top-ranked Red Raiders weathered three hours in cold, windy and snowy conditions for a 16-10 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division baseball victory in Crystal Lake. “Hey Mark, remember when you struck out,” Wagner shouted amid a lot of laughter to the Illinois recruit prior to Huntley’s postgame meeting. But Skonieczny struck back emphatically with home runs in his final 3 at-bats and finished with 8 RBI as every starter in the Huntley (13-0, 6-0) lineup contributed to a 17-hit attack.
