  • Better effort but still a loss for Elgin Nov 25, 2014 10:41 PM
    Elgin senior Mike Miller was not giving in even though he was giving up nearly a foot and at least 70 pounds to Richmond-Burton sophomore Joey St. Pierre on Tuesday night. The 5-foot-10 Miller drew a charging foul to start the game on the 6-foot-9, 250-pound St. Pierre in the second round of the Richmond-Burton/Johnsburg Boys Varsity Basketball Tournament. Miller’s aggressiveness and fearlessness sparked a 30-20 rebounding advantage that showed the Maroons did not come up short in terms of effort despite falling 51-35 to the taller Rockets in Richmond.

  • Burlington C. has tough competition in Big Northern East Aug 28, 2013 7:58 PM
    Opportunities abound for the Burlington Central football team. Third-year coach Rich Crabel has plenty of options at his disposal, particularly on offense where he said between 6-10 running backs and receivers, six different tight ends and four different fullbacks could play on any given night. Thatís just on offense. Crabel added six to eight defensive linemen and between eight and 10 cornerbacks could see action. Central is coming off a 2012 season where it went 5-4 and 4-2 in Big Northern Conference East Division play. The Rockets were playoff-eligible, but missed on points.

     
  • Wauconda thunders past Richmond-Burton May 30, 2013 11:06 PM
    In the grand scheme of things, an hour delay for a lightning sighting was no big deal. After all, the Wauconda baseball team had already been waiting and waiting and waiting for years, if not decades, for the chance to play in a sectional championship game. So the Bulldogs weren't thrown off by having to sit inside Grayslake Central High School on Thursday afternoon for what seemed like, in comparison, a blink of an eye, to wait out some bad weather. In fact, the extra time only seemed to sharpen the Bulldogs' focus even more. Wauconda jumped all over Richmond-Burton in the semifinals of the Grayslake Central Class 3A sectional. The Bulldogs went from sitting to hitting, and hitting a lot. They scored 4 runs on 6 hits over the first two innings alone and rolled up 14 hits overall en route to a 9-1 victory.

     
  • Burlington Central outright BN-East champ Feb 22, 2013 11:05 PM
    Burlington Central threw a block party to start its celebration of an outright Big Northern Conference East Division boys basketball title Friday night at Richmond-Burton. Six-foot-9 junior Duncan Ozburn and 6-5 seniors Moter Deng and Dan McCurdy made it clear there would be no easy strolls down the lane to the basket by combining for 6 first-quarter blocks. And when Central wasn't swatting shots it was significantly increasing the degree of scoring difficulty for defending BNC East champion R-B. Sharing the ball offensively and one of the primary defensive responsibilities also played into the visiting Rockets' objective to make sure they didn't share the championship. As a result, they were posing for pictures at Lou Ramirez Gymnasium after a 60-42 victory extended their winning streak to seven games and capped a recovery from an 0-7 start to the season.
