  • Palatine outlasts St. Viator Oct 28, 2014 11:30 PM
    Tuesday’s second semifinal of the Class 4A Wheeling girls volleyball regional between No. 6-seeded Palatine and No. 11 St. Viator saw both teams notch impressive wins in the first two sets. When the third set started, the action was just as impressive. A terrific opening rally finally ended when Pirates’ junior defensive specialist Alexis Serna came up with a superb save on a Lions’ blast. The ball quickly sailed over the net and fell in an empty spot on the floor for the unconventional kill. Palatine went on to grab a 5-0 lead and never looked back in recording a 25-18, 19-25, 25-19 victory.

  • St. Charles North tops Neuqua Valley in 3 Oct 28, 2014 11:01 PM
    Even after a less-than-stellar game one performance by host Neuqua Valley, no one was surprised to see Tuesday’s regional semifinal go three games. The 25-11 Wildcats have played too well the last several weeks — including a 3-game win over these same St. Charles North Stars in last week’s UEC crossover battle — to let anyone walk over them. So sure enough, the Wildcats rebounded from an error-filled 25-17 setback in game one to even things up with a 25-23 thriller. But that’s when St. Charles North (27-9) picked up its game and its blocking and avenged last week’s loss by taking the decisive third set 25-15 to earn a shot at top-seeded Benet Academy in Thursday’s regional title game.

  • Wheaton Academy shuts out Kaneland Oct 28, 2014 11:21 PM
    Wheaton Academy forward Reid Culberson says the game of soccer is 80 percent skill, 20 percent luck. And every time you hit that post “that 20 percent’s lacking.” Maybe to other teams when they take 21 shots and nail a combination of 5 crossbars and posts, that luck has really run out. But for the top-seeded Warriors, may be there’s a little bit of extra on their side as those loud clanks of iron didn’t prevent Wheaton Academy from cruising to a 3-0 win in a Class 2A Hampshire sectional semifinal over No. 2 Kaneland Tuesday night.
