  • Girls swimming: Fremd finishes on top Nov 2, 2014 7:45 PM
    Of the eight individual events contested in Saturday’s Mid-Suburban League girls swimming championships at Barrington, only one of them had a winner from Fremd. That was senior Saki Takumiya in the 100-yard butterfly. But this Fremd team is clearly more than the sum of its parts. The Vikings won the medley and 200 free relays, and no Fremd invidual entry finished lower than sixth place. That kind of consistency combined with a touch of misfortune for Barrington helped the Vikings claim the Mid-Suburban League title for a third straight year. Fremd finished with 305 points to Barrington’s 260.

  • McHenry’s Reiser edges Conant’s Dale Nov 1, 2014 3:24 PM

  • Liva leaves MSL meet with a record effort Oct 31, 2014 10:06 PM
    According to both Prospect senior diver Dana Liva and her coach, Antonino Bondi, Liva’s performance in Friday’s Mid-Suburban League championship meet was far from perfect. The judges, at the very least, sure liked it a lot. Liva completed a four-year run of MSL championships with a meet and pool record score of 492.45 at Barrington High School.

  • Girls swimming: Scouting MSL swimming and diving Oct 30, 2014 7:30 PM
    Here's what to expect from the Mid-Suburban League girls swimming and diving meet. The action is at Barrington, starting with diving at 6 p.m. Friday and swimming at 11 a.m. Saturday.

  • Prospect’s Liva smoothly dives toward postseason success Oct 29, 2014 2:35 PM
    There’s a certain smooth symmetry to the high school diving career of Dana Liva. Measured against the state’s best competitors, she’s enjoyed parabolic success in her time competing for Prospect. Her state meet finishes have been 12th as a freshman, sixth as a sophomore and fourth as a junior. Plotted against her Mid-Suburban League competitors, the achievement curve has been predictable in a different way: a perfectly straight line of consecutive first-place finishes. When Liva competes starting at 6 p.m. Friday at Barrington in the MSL meet, she’ll gracefully be pursuing conference diving championship No. 4.

  • Prospect’s Karz warms to collegiate baseball future Oct 27, 2014 2:26 PM

Instead, he will probably be gripping a baseball bat during those months. That’s because Karz, thanks to his baseball skills, will be attending Presbyterian College in South Carolina.

    With all of its great young talent, the future of the Barrington boys golf team looks very bright. The present isn’t so bad either. Led by super sophomores Timothy Lim and Tom Calbi, the Broncos were able to take home hardware from Saturday’s Class 3A state tournament finals on a cold day at the “Den” course in Bloomington. Lim shot 73 at the meet’s final round to finish in a tie for sixth individually (at 6-over par for the two day meet), while Calbi carded a 74 on the final day to tie for 12th place individually with a 151 (7-over). The stellar showing of the sophs along with a 77 from junior Burke Barsamian helped Barrington claim the third-place team trophy.

  • Conant’s Dale, Hersey repeat as MSL champs Oct 18, 2014 5:20 PM
    All eyes were fixed on Conant senior Zach Dale on Saturday at the Mid-Suburban League boys cross country meet, and the Cougar senior didn’t disappoint. Dale, who has a run conservative race schedule this season, showed no rust in running away with the victory in 14:58, earning himself a second consecutive MSL title at Busse Woods. “Maybe it wasn’t flashy,” said Conant coach John Powers of Dale’s victory. “But this was a matter of taking care of business, and he passed the eye test big-time.” Hersey also took care of business. The Huskies placed four runners in the top 12 in securing their second consecutive MSL title with 57 points, holding off a strong challenge from Buffalo Grove (63 points).

But Fremd senior Ayako Higuchi made her work in the final 2 miles.
