  • Downers Grove South nearly pulls upsetJun 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    Downers Grove South’s baseball team knew it could play with anyone. On Monday, the Mustangs nearly proved they can beat anyone.

  • From the darkness, South Elgin emerges a winnerJun 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    They say it’s always darkest before the dawn. Maybe so, but it can get quite dark right before a once-in-a-lifetime Storm hits. For the South Elgin baseball team, the top of the sixth inning in Monday’s Class 4A Schaumburg Boomers supersectional against Evanston was darker than watching a lunar eclipse on an overcast night from a windowless room.

     
  • South Elgin's players celebrate after the final out of a 7-6 win over Evanston during the Class 4A supersectional baseball game at Boomers Stadium in Schaumburg on Monday night.

    South Elgin rallies, heads to stateJun 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    Who was worried? The South Elgin baseball players will tell you they weren't. But as they were saying that they were also still in shock, as was just about everyone who had just witnessed the Storm's improbable comeback. Down 3 runs going into the bottom of the sixth inning, their senior ace knocked out of the game in the top of the inning, the Storm did what they do best — “Storm” back. South Elgin scored 4 runs in the bottom of the sixth then rode the right arm of senior reliever Tyler Brown in the top of the seventh to come away with a dramatic and thrilling 7-6 win over Evanston Monday night in the Class 4A supersectional at Boomers Stadium in Schaumburg.

     
  • Jablonsky, Prairie Ridge jolt MundeleinJun 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    For a high school baseball player, it doesn’t get any more “pinch-me-is-it-real” magical than what Timothy Jablonsky did on Monday night at Aviators Stadium in Rockford. His pinch-hit grand slam was the key blow as the Wolves ousted Mundelein 9-6 in a Class 4A supersectional.

    When Grayslake Central winning pitcher Justin Guryn racked up a strikeout for the third out, that was the finishing touch in Monday’s 2-1 win over Fenwick in the Class 3A North Central College supersectional in Naperville. The Rams’ gloves were tossed in the air and the team piled on each other in celebration. And they’re getting good at this of outpouring-of-joy stuff. For the second straight season and third time since 2009, Grayslake Central is headed to state. The Rams (29-10), who finished third in state last season and in 2009, face Springfield’s Sacred Heart-Griffin at noon Friday in a state semifinal at Silver Cross Field in Joliet.

     
  • Jeremy Bauer

    Bauer to take over as Jacobs’ new ADJun 9, 2014 12:00 AM
    Jeremy Bauer figured the time would come when he had to make a choice between continuing to coach and moving into administration. That time has arrived. Bauer, Jacobs’ boys golf and girls softball coach, was approved Monday night by the District 300 board of education as the Golden Eagles’ new athletic director. He takes over for Dan Vosnos, who left Jacobs after two years to be the new AD at Homewood-Flossmoor.

    State title eludes determined WarrenJun 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    Warren got oh-so-close, just 2 points away from clinching what would have been Lake County’s first boys volleyball state championship. But Lincoln-Way East rallied for a razor-thin win in Game 2 and then put away Game 3 to outlast Warren 22-25, 26-24, 25-19 en route to claiming its first state title in program history on Saturday at Hoffman Estates High School. It capped a dream season for Lincoln-Way East, which closed with an amazing 41-1 record. The Griffins’ only loss was to Lincoln-Way North.

  • Montini can’t sustain early momentumJun 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    First innings can be so deceptive. Allowing a leadoff triple to start Saturday’s Class 3A Glenbard South sectional final, Montini pitcher Eric Frontzak struck out the next two batters and coaxed a groundout to escape unharmed. In the bottom half Montini loaded the bases and went up 2-0.

    South Elgin upsets Batavia to win 1st sectionalJun 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    Facing a pitcher who no-hit them earlier in the year — not to mention a No. 1 seed riding a 24-game winning streak — might seem like a daunting task to most teams. Most teams maybe, but not South Elgin. It’s going to take a lot more than that to phase the Storm, especially the way they are rolling through the postseason.

     
  • Jacobs’ Reilly Peltier (14) and teammates wait at home plate for Prairie Ridge to finish celebrating their Class 4A McHenry sectional championship win at Peterson Park on Saturday.

    The second-best baseball season in Jacobs history ended Saturday. The second-best season in Prairie Ridge history continues. Prairie Ridge left-hander Austin Covers denied Jacobs consecutive sectional titles with a 4-1 victory in the Class 4A McHenry sectional championship game. Prairie Ridge (23-16) advances to Monday’s 6 p.m. Rockford Aviators supersectional against Mundelein (26-2), which defeated Libertyville 8-1 to win the Glenbrook South sectional.

     
  • The fun continues for Downers SouthJun 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    Simply by watching, you can tell how much Downers Grove South’s baseball team loves playing together. That joy went to another level on Saturday.

    Make that three straight Class 3A sectional championships for Grayslake Central's baseball program, which knocked off Gordon Tech 9-5 at Marian Central Catholic in Woodstock on Saturday. Once 8-8, the Rams improved to 28-10 with their 20th win in their last 22 games. They will try to earn a return trip to Joliet when they face Fenwick at 5 p.m. Monday in the North Central College supersectional in Naperville.

     
  • Skoug sets his sights on Texas ChristianJun 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    Libertyville catcher Evan Skoug sat in a Glenbrook South dugout with his head buried in his strong hands following the Wildcats’ season-ending, 8-1 loss to Mundelein on Saturday. It had been an emotional couple of days for the Gatorade Illinois baseball player of the year, who will forego professional baseball for now in lieu of competing at Texas Christian.

     
  • Mundelein plays past LibertyvilleJun 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    Mundelein had Libertyville slugger Evan Skoug played perfectly again, and the Mustangs had another quality opponent right where they wanted them. Again. When shortstop Derek Parola scooped Skoug’s sharply hit groundball up the middle and beat the speedy Jimmy Govern to the second-base bag for a game-ending forceout with two runners on, Mundelein had capped a stunning 8-1 win in Saturday’s Class 4A sectional final at Glenbrook South.

    QB Beneventi transferring to Fenwick from BenetJun 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    A familiar face will be missing from Benet’s football team this fall. Redwings football coach Pat New confirmed on Saturday that quarterback Jack Beneventi is transferring to Fenwick. Beneventi, committed to the University of Iowa, was a two-year starter for Benet who is finishing his junior year at the Lisle school. As a sophomore he helped lead the Redwings to the Class 7A state semifinals, and again quarterbacked Benet to the 7A playoffs last fall.
