  • Back in form, Miller leads Barrington at PalatineMay 22, 2014 12:00 AM
    One month ago, the outlook for Barrington junior Scotty Miller was anything but bright. Having suffered through walking pneumonia and losing weight from his already slight frame, Miller looked like anything but the standout sprinter who medaled twice at the Class 3A track and field meet a year ago. Fast forward to the Class 3A Palatine Sectional and any signs of a weakened or broken down Miller were nowhere to be found. Miller captured state-qualifying berths in three events for the first time as he helped lead the Broncos to the overall team title on Thursday.

    Scoreboard watching was in full swing in Arlington Heights, Elk Grove and Mt. Prospect on Monday. But it was the 2014 version — with emails, texts, Twitter feeds and website-following. When the screens cleared, Schaumburg had lost its game to Elk Grove 6-2 — but the Saxons still won the right to represent the Mid-Suburban League’s West Division in the league championship game, as Hersey beat Barrington 2-1 about 45 minutes later. With Elk Grove’s victory, the Grenadiers (19-9, 10-5) won the opportunity to determine their own destiny in the East Division. Elk Grove plays at Palatine on Tuesday with the opportunity to clinch outright. The Grens lead both Hersey (15-13-1, 10-6) and Prospect (17-11-1, 10-6), which beat Conant 3-2, by a half-game.

    For weeks, Barrington has been building toward the Mid-Suburban League tournament, knowing its talent and depth might be the difference in the final tally. And Saturday afternoon, the Broncos were a ferocious bunch at doubles and used command performances from Zach Hennenfent and Mohammed Walji at Nos. 2 and 3 singles to run away from the field for a second consecutive league title at Schaumburg. The Broncos outscored Buffalo Grove 57-45 to win it, with Fremd (34), MSL East champ Prospect (31) and Rolling Meadows (30) rounding out the first five in the touranment standings.

    Barrington nips Fremd for MSL titleMay 16, 2014 12:00 AM
    Heading into the final race of the night, senior John Andraschko knew he had just one job to do. And it was a big one: Anchor the Broncos’ 1,600-meter relay relay to a win. That was the position the Broncos were in as two-time defending Mid Suburban League boys track champion Fremd held a 114-109.5 lead before the final race started. “We just had to focus on what we could control,” Andraschko said. “Our focus was on ourselves and about going out to try and win the race.” Andraschko anchored the group that included Brendan Melynchuk, Curtis Monahan, and Adam Phillips to a win in 3:28.07. The Broncos then got help from second-place Hersey (3:28.84) and third-place Palatine (3:29.56), all of which added up to a Barrington victory in the MSL meet. By one-half point. Barrington won its first conference title since 2007 with 119.5 points. The two-time defending champion Vikings were second with 119 points followed by Schaumburg (96.5), Palatine (73) and Hersey (71).
