  • Montini blanks Lake ParkApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Tuesday afternoon’s 4-0 Montini softball victory over Lake Park first looked like one of those games where the team wins 1-0 on one play or one hit. The Broncos, though, found their groove in the fourth inning of the contest held indoors at The Rosemont Dome, scoring all four of their runs on five hits. Montini had just one hit during the first three innings and just one hit after its big inning.

    Prendergast steps down at South ElginApr 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Tim Prendergast never really envisioned himself coaching girls basketball. “I never paid much attention to the girls game,” he says. But when Jason Schaal decided to focus on being South Elgin’s head softball coach, Prendergast decided to accept the challenge of building the Storm’s fledgling girls basketball program. Now, seven years later, Prendergast has decided to step down from the head coaching position of what has become one of the most competitive and respected programs in the area.

    Rolling right along, Elk Grove’s Grams gets win No. 800Mar 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    No more than 50 yards behind the backstop of Fenton’s softball field, Metra trains were quickly zipping by late Monday afternoon. Almost like the 34 seasons for Elk Grove softball coach Ken Grams, who was playing the host Bison in Bensenville as the Grens won 18-2 in six inning, giving the coach career victory no. 800.

    New year, same result for St. Charles EastMar 31, 2014 12:00 AM
    St. Charles East picked up right where it left off last June. And, in a way, so did Burlington Central. For the Saints that was a good thing. St. Charles East, the 2013 Class 4A state runner-up, pounded out 16 hits and dominated the Rockets in a 14-4 win in five innings Monday afternoon in a nonconference softball game in St. Charles. It was the season opener for both teams, as well as their first action of any kind on a full field.

    Even after her race was over at the Illinois Prep Top Times meet at the Shirk Center on the campus of Illinois Wesleyan University, the full meaning wasn’t quite sinking in. The 800-meter run for Jacobs junior Lauren Van Vlierbergen was just that good.

     
  • Count it as a Stevenson win over Elk GroveMar 29, 2014 12:00 AM
    Saturday’s game between Elk Grove and Stevenson could have been coined the ‘countdown’ game of the Barrington softball quad. Grenadiers coach Ken Grams went into the contest needing just 1 win to reach 800 for his career while Patriots skipper Larry Friedrichs stood just 4 away from 500. Throw in Barrington Hall of Fame coach Perry Peterson, who was coaching on the opposite diamond against Mundelein, and you had three Hall of Fame coaches with a combined 1,954 wins. The successful trio of coaches watched their teams battle the cold weather conditions to provide nearly five hours of entertaining softball at the Fields of Dreams. Just before darkness had settled in, the Pats gave Friedrichs, an Elk Grove grad, his first win of his 26th season with a 11-7 victory over his alma mater.

  • Glenbard West’s Graham Top Times 3,200 champMar 29, 2014 12:00 AM
    Only someone dedicated to running a perfect race could find a flaw in a 3,200-meter race she won by 23.48 seconds. That someone is Glenbard West sophomore Lindsey Graham, whose 10:44.98 clocking in the Illinois Top Times meet on Illinois Wesleyan University’s 200-meter indoor track Saturday outdistanced the field but not her expectations.

     
  • Huntley shuts out Elk GroveMar 29, 2014 12:00 AM
    Huntley goalkeeper Jessica Galason didn’t have a lot to do for much of Saturday afternoon’s contest against Elk Grove. The senior made back-to-back saves in a matter of a couple seconds late in the game to preserve a two-goal lead. The Red Raiders’ Samantha Bessey added another goal a minute and a half later to help Huntley to a 3-0 victory over the Grenadiers.

    Geneva blanks West AuroraMar 29, 2014 12:00 AM
    Even strong teams need time to settle into matches, and there were early moments when Geneva’s play looked a bit disjointed on Saturday at West Aurora. But once the Vikings found their collective stride, they found some passing patterns, scored a variety of goals and finished their third straight shutout in a 4-0 nonconference victory.
