  • St. Charles East strikes fast against Batavia Jan 30, 2015 10:53 PM
    St. Charles East did a bit of a 180 Friday night on that old saying about only needing to watch the final two minutes of an NBA game. For the high-flying Saints, it was the first two minutes that was all you needed to see to know it was going to be their night — again — in what became an 81-72 victory over Batavia on the third annual Hoops for Hope night in St. Charles.

  • Geneva’s height keeps West Chicago down Jan 30, 2015 10:41 PM
    More than halfway through the season, it’s no secret that Geneva’s height is a tough matchup. But just because the secret is out doesn’t mean it’s easy to stop. The Vikings got off to a hot start against West Chicago and turned it into a 63-36 win against the Upstate Eight River opponent on Friday in West Chicago.

  • Jacobs in good position to win first FVC crown Jan 30, 2015 10:37 PM
    What a difference a year makes. Last season, a less than sparkling opening day at the Fox Valley Conference wrestling tournament all but erased the hopes for Jacobs of a top four finish. On Friday, things were different for coach Gary Conrads’ club and with the Golden Eagles on the front foot from the opening bout, Jacobs finds itself heading into Saturday’s final day of the conference tournament with an 8-point lead, 105-97 over host McHenry, and 23-more than division rival Cary-Grove (82.0) which enjoyed a solid first day.

  • Lakes taking visual approach to game-readiness Jan 29, 2015 11:12 PM
    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Videos work nicely, too. Instead of just telling all his seniors to play like they’re savoring every last moment of this dwindling basketball season, Lakes coach Chris Snyder decided to show them how others have done so. “We’ve been watching some inspirational movies, like ‘Hoop Dreams,’” Snyder said. “I liked it when we got to the part about William Gates’ last game. I wanted to give our seniors a sense of the season being over and what that feels like and just how you have to play like you’re cherishing every moment, because it will be over soon.”

  • St. Charles East bowlers excited about first trip to state Jan 29, 2015 11:10 PM
    St. Charles East proved it belongs. That was among Saints boys bowling coach Steve Dessauer’s quotes — “ ... we belong” — on Jan. 10 at the Lake Zurich Invitational. That day St. Charles East went pin for pin with three of the state’s top-five ranked teams by IllinoisBowling.net, Harlem, Hononegah and Stevenson. Two weeks later, Jan. 24, the Saints proved it again at the Stevenson sectional at Lakeside Lanes in Mundelein, the odd wood-laned alley where the Saints bowled against those same tough teams.

  • Bad time for tough breaks Jan 29, 2015 10:59 PM
    The school year’s longest sport can be grueling. It may not be as punishing as football or wrestling, but basketball’s pretty tough on the mind and body. As we enter the fourth month of the season, Eyes on Five hopes everyone is saving some strength for the madness on the horizon.

  • Confident Mundelein edges Libertyville Jan 29, 2015 10:47 PM
    With the sectional and state meets looming in a few short weeks, Mundelein boys swimming coach Rahul Sethna knew an ingredient was missing from the recipe.

  • Another winning blend for Palatine Jan 29, 2015 10:05 PM
    Perhaps Hoffman Estates coach Luke Yanule said it best. “They’re on a roll. They’ve really got good chemistry,” he said of Palatine, which had just dismantled his Hawks 73-48 in an MSL West game Thursday night at Hoffman Estates. The “chemistry” formula is working well. The Pirates’ sixth straight win, yet another in convincing style, had them jumping ahead 16-0 and 24-4 after the first quarter. The lead got as wide as 34 at 61-27 in the third quarter. And it’s defense as the catalyst in that potent mix for Palatine (17-6, 4-3).

  • Nardini’s magical senior season continues at Vernon Hills Jan 29, 2015 9:29 PM

  • Cary-Grove’s Ruhland out with knee injury Jan 29, 2015 6:59 PM
    Cary-Grove senior Trevor Ruhland’s basketball season has likely ended due to a knee injury. Best known as a Notre Dame football recruit who started at offensive tackle in two state championship games for Cary-Grove, Ruhland (6-foot-4, 280 pounds) suffered a small tear in his meniscus while planting to set a screen during a 38-27 loss to Crystal Lake South last Friday.

  • Heeren assists Hersey in decisive win Jan 29, 2015 10:29 PM
    Max Heeren, Hersey’s senior point guard, knew what he had to do to help the Huskies bounce back from Tuesday’s loss to St. Viator. “As a point guard your job has to be to penetrate the lane and get the ball inside,” said Heeren. “That’s what I was doing tonight. We were able to get the second layer of offense open.” Heeren did not put a point on the board for the better part of three quarters and finished with 7 points. But he dished out 10 assists in Hersey’s 65-38 decision over visiting Buffalo Grove.
