  • Hard-hitting Conant stops St. Charles EastJun 4, 2014 12:00 AM
    After falling to eventual Class 4A state runner-up St. Charles East in a regional championship game a year ago, Conant’s softball players were well aware of the Saints’ ability. “We were ready for a tough game,” said Cougars junior first baseman Hailey Rothstein. It turns out the Cougars were as tough as they had been all season. With Rothstein’s towering two-strike, two-out, 3-run homer over the right-field fence in the bottom of the third inning serving as the defining moment, the No. 2-seeded Cougars blanked No. 3 St. Charles 13-0 in five-innings at the Class 4A Bartlett sectional semifinal Wednesday. Conant (26-5) advanced to Saturday’s championship to face top-seeded Glenbard North (28-5). First pitch is tentatively set for 3 p.m., pending IHSA approval.

She added a bases-loaded walk in a 10-run fifth, as second-seeded Grayslake Central went on to beat the third-seeded Eagles 12-4. The Rams (23-12) will take on No. 1 Wauconda (28-8) in the sectional final at 11 a.m. Saturday.

In her first start and with just six varsity at-bats under her belt, MacDonald delivered the biggest hit of her young career, a two-out, two-run, first-pitch rocket shot double to the fence in left field in the top of the fourth inning that scored sophomore Kelly Katis and senior pinch-runner senior Jenna Privatsky with the only runs junior Keenan Dolezal would need as the Fillies beat Rockton Hononegah 2-0 in the semifinals of the Class 4A Jacobs sectional.

    St. Charles East headed to state in girls soccerJun 3, 2014 12:00 AM
    According to forward Darcy Cunningham, the word “legacy” was a term the St. Charles East girls soccer team used as far back as two years ago. The Fighting Saints wanted to not only defend the fact they won 8 state cham pionships in the 1990s and their orange and black were the colors of soccer royalty during that time, they want to relive it and assume the throne again. After East's 2-0 shutout over Huntley in the Class 3A Lake Park supersectional Tuesday, the Saints (18-4-2) are heading back to the state finals for the first time since 2007.
