  • Skonieczny’s 3 HRs, 8 RBI lead unbeaten Huntley Apr 19, 2013 10:14 PM
    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.

     
  • Prairie Ridge blanks Crystal Lake S. Apr 16, 2013 9:01 PM
    According to Crystal Lake South softball coach Scott Busam, it's not time to panic, but it might be time to sound a wake-up alarm on his Gators. After a slew of errors committed in an 8-1 loss to McHenry on Monday, the errors were contagious again as the Gators spotted Prairie Ridge 4 runs on 4 errors on the road in a 10-0 Fox Valley Conference loss in 5 innings Tuesday in Crystal Lake.

    The seven teams of the Fox Valley Conference’s Valley Division own a 51-12 combined record this spring.

Not only have member schools gone 10-3 against the Mid-Suburban League and 7-1 against the North Suburban Conference, all seven boast winning records through Thursday: Huntley (9-0), Crystal Lake South (6-0), Jacobs (8-1), Cary-Grove (9-2), Dundee-Crown (4-2), Prairie Ridge (8-3) and McHenry (7-4).

  • St. Charles East lacks execution vs. Prairie Ridge Mar 28, 2013 9:13 PM
    St. Charles East's baseball team finished with one fielding error during Thursday's nonconference game against Prairie Ridge. But the late-inning miscue proved costly as the Wolves (4-0) capitalized with a 6-run seventh — with all of the runs coming across after 2 outs — during their 7-3 victory over the Saints (1-2) in St. Charles.

     
  • Two dead in McHenry in separate incidents Mar 8, 2013 10:00 PM
    Two people died in separate incidents early Friday morning in McHenry, officials said. A seventh-grade girl died after a fire in a single-family home. And a man in the same subdivision died after high levels of carbon monoxide were found in a home.

     
  • Jacobs outlasts Prairie Ridge Feb 25, 2013 11:28 PM
    Now that the season has reached a single-elimination format, this is where Jim Hinkle’s coaching career at Jacobs reminds you of a game of Russian Roulette. But in Monday night’s 43-25 Class 4A regional quarterfinal win over No. 6 Prairie Ridge in Algonquin, the 71-year-old Hinkle outlasted the Wolves to coach another game. And he also received another chance, for possibly the last time, to refute an ugly victory claim for the first time.

     
  • LT edges PR; Fremd takes third Feb 16, 2013 11:14 PM
    Lyons Township ended Friday’s preliminaries at the girls gymnastics state meet trailing Prairie Ridge Co-op by .25 points for first place.

Prairie Ridge earned its second consecutive state trophy, taking second with 149.30 points, followed by Fremd (146.05). The Vikings earned their 21st state trophy with a third-place finish.

  • Hinkle, Jacobs enjoy one last win in old gym Feb 15, 2013 10:32 PM
    Jim Hinkle wanted one more special night in the cozy confines of the old main gym at Jacobs. He got it Friday night, and he’ll certainly remember it for a long time. The Golden Eagles used the energy of the near-full gym to start the game on a 22-6 run and went on to defeat Prairie Ridge, 70-48, in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball action. “This was awesome,” said Hinkle, who is retiring at the end of his 17th season on the Jacobs bench. “The new gym is kind of like a trophy wife. It looks pretty, everyone likes it, says it’s beautiful. It’s got no substance. It’s got no heart. It’s got nothing this gym had. This is the good wife.”

     
  • Prairie Ridge takes state meet lead after Day 1 Feb 15, 2013 11:35 PM
    Prairie Ridge co-op won its first state trophy in girls gymnastics last season, finishing in third place. This season the Wolves are hungry for more. Cary-Grove sophomore duo Rachael Underwood and Riley Mahoney powered Prairie Ridge to the top score with 149.30 in Friday’s state meet preliminaries at Palatine High School. Lyons Township is in second with 149.05, followed by Fremd (146.0). New Trier (145.35) and Geneva (145.225) round out the top five.

     
  • St. Edward’s Madden ready for a fantastic finish Feb 14, 2013 4:12 PM
    Something significant has been missing for St. Edward senior girls gymnast Abby Madden this season. That would be older sister, Jordyn, who was her teammate and confidant the previous three seasons. Jordyn Madden, now studying at Indiana, was a four-time state qualifier. “It was hard at the beginning this season without her,” Abby Madden says. “She came to three meets at Christmas time, which was really nice. She sends texts saying good luck. I really missed her at first. It was so hard without her, but I got used to it. I’ve been competing with her since I was 5, 6 or 7. She still cheers me on. She used to be nervous and I would calm her down. Now, she calms me down because she doesn’t freak out anymore.” Older sister certainly has plenty to be proud of this season. Madden once again finds herself in the girls gymnastics state finals this weekend at Palatine High School, where she will compete in all the individual events and the all-around competition.

     
  • Crystal Lake South tops Prairie Ridge Feb 13, 2013 11:24 PM
    The Crystal Lake South girls basketball team got a taste of what could have happened if it didn’t have a knack all season for winning close games. That special capacity alone averted a major crisis at Gator Alley Wednesday night as crosstown rival Prairie Ridge did all it could to spoil the party for the Class 4A regional hosts, who refused to quit after being down as much as 17 in the first half. Third-seeded PR rallied to cut South’s lead to 2 with 1:42 remaining after Alex Neckopulos broke free on a shot fake and converted a 3-point play to the dismay of Gators coach Kyle McCaughn, who called for time as it put the rematch of last year’s regional final between South and Cary-Grove in serious jeopardy. But as South had done all season, the Gators would come through in the clutch. Lauren Del Vecchio ended South’s 8-minute field goal drought with a 3-point play of her own with 1:27 remaining, helping the second-seeded Gators escape with a 42-36 regional semifinal win over the Wolves, launching them into Friday’s title game against top-seeded Cary-Grove

  • Third-quarter surge lifts Dundee-Crown Feb 6, 2013 10:18 PM
    It was a third quarter to remember for Dundee-Crown and a nightmarish quarter to forget for Prairie Ridge. Outscoring PR 20-3 in the third quarter, D-C rallied from a 13-point second quarter and eventually pulled out a 50-46 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball win over the host Wolves in Crystal Lake Wednesday night.

     
  • Prairie Ridge, Madden all-around successes Feb 4, 2013 11:09 PM
    Prairie Ridge co-op had three gymnasts finish in the top five for all-around as the Wolves cruised to their second consecutive sectional title with an impressive 149.525 at Fremd High School in Palatine on Monday. Prairie Ridge became the first of four sectional winners automatically qualifying for the girls gymnastic state meet on Feb. 15 and 16 at Palatine High School.

     
  • Cary-Grove starts fast, blows out Prairie Ridge Feb 1, 2013 10:36 PM
    Rarely are games won in the first 5 minutes. This one was. Scoring the first 11 points of the game, Cary-Grove’s fast start provided the spark in the Trojans’ 53-32 win over Prairie Ridge in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball action in Cary Friday night.

     
  • Conant’s Starzynski, Prairie Ridge impress at regional Jan 31, 2013 11:17 PM
    Conant was looking for a lift at its own regional on Thursday night, and the Cougars got one from senior Sarah Starzynski. Starzynski missed over a month due to a broken wrist, but the Cougar senior didn’t miss much on Thursday. Limited to two events, Starzynski made the most of them, taking third on the beam (9.025) and tying for sixth on the bars (8.925) in leading the Cougars to a second-place finish with 139.0 points in Hoffman Estates. Conant advanced to the Fremd sectional on Monday night at 6:30 p.m by securing the second at-large bid. Sophomore Rachael Underwood (37.60) and sophomore Riley Mahoney (37.225) went 1-2 in the all-around in propelling Prairie Ridge co-op to the regional title with an impressive 147.175.

     
  • Huntley stays unbeaten in FVC Valley Jan 29, 2013 10:37 PM
    With Huntley's boys basketball team trailing Prairie Ridge in the second quarter, Marty Manning called a timeout. The Red Raiders' coach got in his players' faces about their intensity, or lack thereof. The Raiders responded with a 12-0 run and eventually cruised to a 56-30 home victory Tuesday night. Jake Wagner scored 12 points, and Amanze Egekeze added 10 as Huntley improved to 13-6 overall and 7-0 in the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division.

     
  • Cullen still unbeaten; Cary-Grove 2nd in FVC Jan 26, 2013 9:12 PM
    It was clear going into Saturday's Fox Valley Conference finals that Crystal Lake Central's five-year reign as the league wrestling champion was over. The question was, would Cary-Grove's navy and white or McHenry's black and orange be the new colors of FVC wrestling royalty. McHenry's lead wasn't safe up only 10 points after Friday's prelims but sending 13 of 14 into the semifinals to Cary-Grove's 10 didn't seem to make the Warriors nervous. The Trojans closed in early with first place wins in 2 of the first 3 matches and watched three wrestlers earn titles, but McHenry grew stronger in the heavier classes and garnered 3 first-place winners, 3 second-place winners and 4 third-place medals to grab the overall championship over Cary-Grove, 261.50-210.
