  • Konkle, Metea Valley too much for South Elgin Dec 20, 2014 12:24 AM
    Metea Valley center Mark Konkle expected to see South Elgin’s 6-foot 10 center Tyler Hankins crowding him around the glass in the Mustangs’ 83-51 Upstate Eight Conference Valley Division boys basketball blowout of the Storm in South Elgin Friday night. Instead, with Hankins in street clothes until the end of January due to injury and Konkle’s 6-foot-6 frame giving the senior a 4-inch height advantage against his defenders, the cup was free and the game plan was to get the ball inside to the 235-pounder and the rest would take care of itself.

  • Geneva gets back on track Dec 19, 2014 11:11 PM
    Geneva coach Phil Ralston was still smarting a bit from watching his team give up 77 points in a loss to St. Charles East last weekend. The Vikings nearly blanked visiting Streamwood in the opening quarter on Friday night on the way to a 53-30 Upstate Eight River victory, making it at least a little easier for their coach to put last week in the rearview mirror.

  • Barrington stands tall against Fremd Dec 19, 2014 10:59 PM
    As if Barrington’s height, rebounding and defensive prowess isn’t enough, wait until the Broncos, as coach Bryan Tucker puts it, “get a little better at valuing the basketball.” A little bit better shot selection, especially according to the situation, and having key ballhandlers stay out of foul trouble will help them be even more impressive than they already were in Friday night’s 65-57 Mid-Suburban West win at home over Fremd.

  • Toughness, finesse carry Prospect Dec 19, 2014 10:42 PM
    Prospect used some on-court toughness and some finesse in beating Wheeling 48-40 at the the Jean Walker Field House in Mt. Prospect on Friday night. The Knights’ Grant Miller, whose nickname is Bulldog, provided the toughness. And sophomore Frankie Mack had the finesse in the Mid-Suburban East victory.

  • Conant closes out Hoffman Estates Dec 19, 2014 10:34 PM
    Conant finally found a way to win a close one. The Cougars, who had heartbreaking losses to Fremd and Barrington, held off a late charge by host Hoffman Estates on Friday and topped the Hawks 60-55.

  • Energy, outcome favors Fremd against Barrington Dec 19, 2014 10:31 PM
    It was easy to spot Fremd boys swimming coach Kristen Newby on Friday night. She was the high-energy one with the big grin on the deck of her school’s pool, as she seemingly pep-talked every member of her team as its Mid-Suburban League West showdown with visiting Barrington unfolded. She had every right to be enthusiastic. As the meet wore on, she knew the score, literally and figuratively — her squad had a good chance to defeat the Broncos and in the process win the biggest dual of the young Mid-Suburban West season. Newby was still all smiles when it was over, as the Vikings swam away with a 104-82 victory, to head into the holiday break with perhaps an unexpected gift.

  • Williams, Petro spar in elite butterfly matchup Dec 18, 2014 10:58 PM
    In Round 1 of the Colin Williams-Michael Petro 100-yard butterfly showdown, give seniority the edge. Williams, an Elk Grove senior, won what is likely the first of three head-to-head matchups between two of the Mid-Suburban League’s top competitors — and perhaps the state’s — in the event on Thursday in a dual hosted by Hersey at Olympic Pool in Arlington Heights. The two were about even at the halfway point, with Williams touching in 24.65 and Petro in 24.71. But Williams had the stronger second half, finishing in 52.27 to Petro’s 53.26.

  • Scouting area boys basketball holiday tournaments Dec 18, 2014 11:03 PM

  • Young, tough lineups as Barrington faces Fremd Dec 18, 2014 8:26 PM
    Friday marks the first big dual meet test of the season in Mid-Suburban West boys swimming and diving as two-time defending overall league champ Barrington pays a visit to Fremd. The Vikings placed third in last year’s conference meet — but it would be a mistake to put much emphasis on last year when looking at either of the teams this season. Both programs are trotting out lineups very different from last winter, with one thing in common: youth.

  • Aurora Christian wins 6th straight with team effort Dec 18, 2014 10:41 PM
    Thursday marked a homecoming of sorts for RD Lutze when Newark visited Aurora Christian, and with the help of his teammates the junior made sure it was a happy one. Lutze, who lives in Lisbon, would have attended Newark. Eagles fans are sure glad he’s at Aurora Christian, already a two-year varsity starter who led a balanced attack with 17 points in a 74-48 victory.

  • Bartlett-Jacobs matchup highlights tournament openers Dec 18, 2014 11:31 PM

  • St. Charles East’s 3s bury Streamwood Dec 18, 2014 11:15 PM
    Maybe the way to best describe St. Charles East’s 74-32 Upstate Eight Conference River Division boys basketball rout of Streamwood Thursday night can be better put as a reaction: yikes! Saints’ coach Patrick Woods on the other hand maybe had a more alternative approach with the word “smooth” afterward, but either way you put it, when a team the caliber of East (8-1, 5-0) puts on a 3-point barrage as it did against the Sabres, rolling up 14 — including 10 in the first half alone to take a 53-11 lead at halftime — any one synonym can label this game correctly for the undefeated leaders in the division.

  • Carmel takes a run at a different style of play Dec 18, 2014 7:47 PM
    Carmel junior C.J. Barr is scoring 17 points a game, and the Corsairs are trying to play with a faster pace under new coach Zack Ryan.
