    Photos from the Larkin vs Prairie Ridge boys basketball game on Saturday, Dec. 20, in Algonquin.

  • Repeat Leyden title for Rolling Meadows Dec 20, 2014 9:04 PM
    Rolling Meadows repeated as champion of the boys swimming invitational at Leyden, topping West Chicago and the host Eagles for the title on Saturday. Jake Barson won the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:01.21, Filip Pancerz won the 100 back in 59.49, Kuba Debkowski won the 50 free in 23.22 and Josh Dellorto won twice, taking both the 200 free (1:48.68) and 500 free (4:59.87). The 500 effort from Dellorto lowered his own team record. With victories in all three relays, the Mustangs finished with 311 points, while West Chicago finished at 260 and Leyden at 206.

  • Wheeling scores second-place Erb finish Dec 20, 2014 6:13 PM
    With Metea Valley holding a commanding 44-point lead heading into the final round, the closest battle was going to be for second place Saturday at the 51st Annual Rus Erb Wrestling Tournament. The Mustangs rolled to the championship of the powerful 17-team tourney at Glenbrook South with 200.5 points. And Wheeling came through when the chips were down as the Wildcats overcame Oswego 141 to 138.5 to take home the runner-up trophy. Carmel Catholic wound up placing sixth with 119 points as the Corsairs had a very strong showing with four wrestlers reaching the championship match.

  • Wauconda holds off Elgin Dec 20, 2014 6:38 PM
    Frustration boiled over in the Elgin locker room at halftime of Saturday morning’s 83-75 loss to Wauconda at Marengo, and that was probably a good thing. Trailing by 14 after the Bulldogs smacked Elgin with an 11-0 run to close the half, the Maroons cleared the air.

  • Negron, Larkin topple Prairie Ridge Dec 20, 2014 8:50 PM
    There was a lesson learned after the Larkin boys basketball team dropped an Upstate River matchup to St. Charles North Friday night — that sophomore Christian Negron has to be more of a focal point offensively by being aggressive and selfish. While the 6-foot-6 inch Negron carries an alternative approach, there was no doubt that Larkin benefits from that game plan after he poured in 18 points in Larkin’s 58-48 win over Prairie Ridge to open pool play of the 2014 Hinkle Holiday Classic hosted by Jacobs in Algonquin Saturday.

  • Duff helps Carmel snuff skid Dec 20, 2014 6:18 PM
    C.J. Duff stretched his run of “A” efforts to three, while his Carmel Catholic basketball team stopped a streak of another kind. “It’s a relief, definitely,” a smiling Duff said after the Corsairs snapped a five-game losing slide with a 71-62 win over Grant in the opening game of Jacobs’ Hinkle Holiday Classic on Saturday morning. Duff finished with 31 points (three 3-pointers), 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals. The junior guard had also turned in an “A” performance Friday night by scoring a career-high 30 points against Joliet Catholic.

  • Plichta, Fremd beaming after New Trier victory Dec 20, 2014 7:41 PM
    A standout team effort on the balance beam helped Fremd's girls gymnastics team win the New Trier Holiday Invite for the third straight year with a 144.55, while Carmel Catholic finished in the second spot (142.725) and host New Trier placed third (142.35) in Winnetka on Saturday.

  • Parsons’ fall clinches Geneva’s win over Kaneland Dec 20, 2014 8:07 PM
    Colin Parsons was not about to watch the 18-point wrestling lead Geneva enjoyed fade into oblivion. The Vikings’ senior had other ideas when taking the mat for the final match against Kaneland Saturday afternoon.

  • Prospect’s Gonzalez makes all-around gains at Palatine Dec 20, 2014 7:12 PM
    While Prospect’s Olivia Gonzalez certainly got noticed as a freshman gymnast, this year the Knights sophomore is solidifying her position as a first-rate competitor. Gonzalez came back from a nasty fall on bars to take first in the all-around (36.6) in leading Prospect to the 27th annual Palatine Invite title with 140.875 points on Saturday.

  • Batavia’s Frazier reaches 1,000-point milestone Dec 20, 2014 4:48 PM
    Hannah Frazier walked out of Batavia’s locker room Saturday at Oswego’s Hoops for the Troops with a bucket filled with 1,000 gum balls. It might take awhile for Frazier to chew all that gum— perhaps even longer than it took her to put her name in the Batavia record books.

  • Geneva edges Wheaton co-op at Illinois Best Dec 20, 2014 10:09 PM
    It’s taken longer than expected, but the defending state all-around champion finally competed again as an all-arounder. Geneva sophomore Claire Ginsberg won the IHSA title in February earlier this year, but a knee injury and illness limited her to a two-event specialist in the team’s five previous meets. Ginsberg certainly didn’t look like someone who has been out of commission for very long as she was the best during Saturday’s Illinois Best Invitational at Wheaton Warrenville, winning the all-around title with a 37.225 and helping Geneva edge Wheaton co-op, 72.25 to 71.725 for the team championship.

  • Celebrating Palatine High girls cross country excellence at French Market Dec 20, 2014 3:36 PM
    After going on a jaunt with a running club, Palatine High School’s girls cross country team gathered where they finished at the downtown French Market in the village train station for a celebration of state and national achievements Saturday. The team took second in the Illinois High School Association’s Class 3A cross country championships in Peoria in November. The Pirates placed 12th in a 22-team field in a Nike national cross country competition in Portland, Oregon, this month.

  • Ivanauskas powers Barrington past South Elgin Dec 20, 2014 9:31 PM
    If it was bad enough South Elgin’s boys basketball team got eaten up by 6-foot-6 inch Mark Konkle for 26 points in a 32-point loss to Metea Valley on Friday, Saturday’s matchup that featured 6-foot-9 Barrington junior Rapolas Ivanauskas only got worse for the Storm. Ivanauskas gave the Storm a taste of what Barrington’s big man can do in a 65-43 Broncos win to open up pool play at the 2014 Hinkle Holiday Classic at Jacobs.

  • Libertyville’s Harrington takes the long view at Lake County meet Dec 20, 2014 9:25 PM
    Libertyville standout swimmer Matt Harrington summed it up best. “The Lake County Invite is always a great training meet and it’s still early in the season so it also serves as kind of an experiment to see where you stand,” the Princeton-bound senior said after winning the 500 freestyle, finishing second in the 200 freestyle and taking legs on the second-place 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams. “I’m really working on getting mentally stronger. I do well and get off to good starts but then I tend to fall off at the end. Today I swam almost 900 yards. That’s great for getting more familiar with the pain that goes along with getting stronger. Plus, by swimming the longer events it helps me finish stronger in the shorter events.” Incidentally, Harrington’s times in the 200 (1:41.85) and 500 freestyle (4:43.89) were both school records, which made first-year coach Mike Cunningham even more ecstatic.

  • Lakes rallies past Richmond-Burton Dec 20, 2014 10:36 PM
    Down by 5 points with just more than three minutes to play, Lakes fought back to get a 41-39 victory over Richmond-Burton in its first game of the day in the Northern Illinois Holiday Classic at Woodstock on Saturday.

  • WW South falters in second half Dec 20, 2014 11:44 PM
    It wasn’t the second half Wheaton Warrenville South’s girls basketball team hoped for.

  • Boys basketball: Lake County roundup Dec 20, 2014 10:50 PM
    Kyle Gofron and Matt Powers led a balanced attack for Antioch in a 42-36 win over Clark at the Marengo holiday tournament on Saturday. Gofron finished with 13 points, including 2 three-pointers, and Powers had 9 points.

  • Out-of-state setback for Fremd Dec 21, 2014 12:44 AM
    Fremd’s girls basketball team suffered its first loss in the Nike Tournament of Champions on Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona. The Vikings dropped a 67-56 decision to Horizon High school of Colorado in the semifinals of the Desper Division.
