  • Prospect mindfully tops Conant Nov 20, 2014 11:53 PM
    After a 12-of-24 performance at the free throw line on Wednesday, Prospect coach Ashley Graham discussed the issue with her girls prior to Thursday’s game. “She kind of reminded us about focus and not to over think when we’re at the line,” said Knights senior Taylor Will. “She said ‘Just let your body do it, it’s muscle memory’ .” The Knights sure remembered well. They made 11-of-12 in the final six minutes to help seal a 62-57 victory over Conant in the York tournament.

  • ‘Sick’ performances from Anderson at sectional Nov 17, 2014 4:47 PM
    With the benefit of perspective, perhaps that wasn’t a cold Palatine junior Kristin Anderson was battling on Saturday during the Stevenson girls swimming and diving sectional. After all, lifetime best times are generally not produced without a fully functional respiratory system, and all of Anderson’s swims at the meet were besties, and by a wide margin. Anderson won the 50-yard free (23.63) and the 100 free (51.37), breaking the pool record in the latter. She also anchored Palatine’s state-qualifying 200 freestyle relay. So, OK, perhaps it was seasonal allergies were behind the red nose and slightly swollen face. Either way, it doesn’t look like it’s worth worrying about.

  • District 214’s centennial food drive sets ambitious goal Nov 4, 2014 2:38 PM
    District 214's centennial celebration now turns its attention to helping the community from which it sprang 100 years ago. A major food drive to collect 100,000 items, starts on Nov. 9. “We want to do something that encompasses as many students and staff as possible,” said Mark Gunther, a longtime Hersey teacher.

     
  • 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
    The Schaumburg Class 3A boys cross country sectional lived up to its hype, but also offered plenty of surprises. McHenry senior Jessie Reiser edged Conant senior Zach Dale for the individual title, while Hersey, McHenry, Barrington, Lake Zurich and Hoffman Estates earned team advancement to the state meet.

     
  • Record effort from Jacobs' Van Vlierbergen Nov 1, 2014 7:33 PM
    Jacobs senior Lauren Van Vlierbergen made the most of her first race at Busse Woods in the Class 3A Schaumburg girls cross country sectional, while Palatine continued to dominate from start to finish. Van Vlierbergen battled Palatine junior Kelly O’Brien for over 2 miles before flashing great closing speed in the final 800 meters to run away with the sectional title in a course-record 17:07.

     
  • 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
    Prospect senior Lucas Karz has already thought about his first winter in college. “I won’t need to shovel the driveway in the winter,” he said with a smile. 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.

     
  • Girls volleyball: Northwest roundup Oct 27, 2014 10:29 PM
    No. 12-seeded Conant wasn’t on its home floor but still played in its own hometown to win its Class 4A girls volleyball play-in match on Monday night. The Cougars went across town to the Hoffman Estates regional and topped the No. 21 Hawks 25-10 25-20 for the third time this season. Conant will face No. 5 Lake Park in today’s 6:30 p.m. semifinal.

     
  • Girls cross country: Higuchi strong down the stretch for Fremd Oct 25, 2014 7:54 PM
    Fremd senior Ayako Higuchi had the finishing touch on Saturday at the Hoffman Estates Class 3A regional. Just last week, Higuchi couldn’t quite find the extra gear down the home stretch, finishing second to Palatine junior Kelly O’Brien at the Mid-Suburban League meet. But the Vikings senior closed the door on Saturday, using one final burst in the final 20 meters to win the regional title in 18:08 to prevail after a stiff challenge from Prospect sophomore Brooke Wilson (18:10) on a sparkling fall morning at Busse Woods.

     
  • Winning trend continues for Hersey at Lake Park Oct 25, 2014 11:11 PM
    Apparently one championship this week wasn’t enough for Hersey’s girls volleyball team. Just two days after winning the Mid-Suburban League title, the Huskies came back to win the championship of the Lake Park Invite in Roselle. The Huskies (30-5) defeated Oak Park-River Forest 25-14, 25-9 for their second title at Lake Park in three years.

     
  • Prospect finishes with 3rd straight win Oct 24, 2014 11:43 PM
    When do the playoffs begin? The 2015 playoffs, that is. Prospect sure looks ready. The Knights concluded their 2014 campaign with a third straight win, this one a convincing 31-13 Mid-Suburban East victory at Elk Grove to finish 3-6 overall and 3-2 in the division. They can only wish it was 2015 already.
