  • St. Charles East stuns Geneva Jan 25, 2015 9:15 AM
    Geneva’s girls basketball team loses so rarely at home that there’s truth to the cliché that it’s going to take a career night to beat them. St. Charles East did just that Saturday in the Mack Olson gym, getting not one but two career games to stun the Vikings 66-54, handing Geneva (16-6, 10-1) its first loss in the Upstate Eight Conference River Division.

  • Benoit, Hampshire squeak past St. Edward Jan 24, 2015 10:05 PM
    Hampshire junior Emma Benoit wasn’t being given many opportunities to score inside Saturday night against St. Edward senior Cece Rapp. So the 6-foot Benoit stepped outside, then to the free throw line, to help her team win the game. Benoit’s 3-pointer with 1:49 to play and her free throw with 2 seconds left in the game helped the Whip-Purs hold off St. Edward 36-35 in a nonconference girls basketball game on Hampshire’s Pack the Place night.

  • Game effort, but no win for Grayslake North Jan 24, 2015 10:00 PM
    Grayslake North’s weekend in Washington included four games. And more games. “They made a game ‘American Idol’ and ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ” freshman guard Brandi Thibeaux said of her teammates. “It was just crazy.” The Knights got singing talent? Maybe not. “It wasn’t the best,” Thibeaux said with a laugh. “It was funny, though.” Winners of four straight games for the first time this season, Grayslake North flashed its basketball talents Saturday against visiting Woodstock. Unfortunately for the Knights, it went as well as their singing in central Illinois last weekend. Woodstock saw an 11-point lead early in the second half trimmed to one on three occasions, including twice in the fourth quarter, before capturing a 46-38 decision in a Fox Valley Fox Division contest.

    Less than 24 hours removed from allowing a season-high 69 points in a double-digit loss to St. Charles East, Bartlett’s girls basketball team picked up the defensive pieces Friday night. Limiting Neuqua Valley to 25 percent shooting (13 of 51) from the floor, including just 12 percent accuracy (2 of 17) from beyond the 3-point arc, the Hawks (14-7, 7-1) battled their way to a 45-34 Upstate Eight Conference Valley Division victory in Naperville.

  • Geneva’s inside-outside game sinks Batavia Jan 22, 2015 9:32 PM
    From the time Janie McCloughan went down with a concussion late in Geneva’s fifth game of the season, it’s been a familiar struggle for the Vikings to get their entire lineup on the court. From McCloughan to Grace Loberg to Abby Novak it never seems Geneva can put all its pieces on the court at the same time — something the program knows all too well. The Vikings still aren’t quite there, they are missing Kate Rogers with an ankle injury, but they were as healthy as they have been in awhile and put on a show Thursday night in a lopsided 66-36 win over Batavia.

  • Richae, Hoffman Estates lead a winning battle Jan 22, 2015 9:19 PM

All of the teams were wearing a ‘Bowl for the Cure – Strike Against Epilepsy’ t-shirt, and many people were supporting by not only wearing the shirts but also making donations. Meanwhile, on the lanes, the Hawks continued to excel. Hoffman Estates defeated Buffalo Grove 7-2, led by sophomore Amanda Richae, who excelled at Wednesday’s meet by rolling a 699 series — the best in the league so far this year.
