  • Carmel rises up, stops Lakes Mar 30, 2015 10:00 PM
    Granted, basketball season is finished. But this Carmel boys volleyball squad is not tall, not even in the world of boys volleyball. On Monday night, the Corsairs, playing their first volleyball match of the season, surrendered handily in the height department to visiting Lakes and 6-foot-3 Avery Brodde and Colton Jewell and 6-6 Dalton Sobrig. As it turns out, maybe height isn’t everything in boys volleyball. You see, even at 6-1, Carmel’s junior, Michael May, can hit the volleyball very hard. “He was a baseball player,’’ said Carmel coach Kevin Nylen. “He didn’t play volleyball as a freshman. But he came to tryouts last year and we picked him up within a day.” May had 9 kills in a match with plenty of errors. However, Carmel eventually made opening night a good one for the home team. Carmel stopped the Eagles 25-22, 25-21.

  • Hemmer’s slam highlights Mundelein’s win Mar 28, 2015 10:22 PM
    Not in his three previous seasons as Mundelein’s head softball coach nor two years as an assistant had Brett Wilhelm won a game in Barrington’s annual quad. That changed Saturday, as the Mustangs outslugged Elk Grove 15-8 behind Jamie Hemmer’s grand slam and the relief pitching of freshman Breanna Adams. Mundelein left Barrington’s Fields of Dreams with a 4-1 overall record after losing to the host Fillies 7-0 in its second game.

  • Falk wins it in 13 for Vernon Hills Mar 28, 2015 10:21 PM
    Justin Falk’s pinch-hit groundball plated the winning run in the bottom of the 13th inning, as Vernon Hills’ baseball team outlasted Richmond-Burton 6-5 Saturday. The nonconference game featured more than 10 pitchers and 100 batters. Jack Duffley reached on an error to start the 13th for the Cougars. Drew Winegardner then singled and Brennan Reback walked to load the bases. With two strikes and the infield pulled in, Falk hit a groundball to shortstop. Duffley beat a bobbled relay to the plate to seal the victory for the home team.
