  • Full speed ahead for Meadows in victory at Hoffman Estates Jan 9, 2015 9:53 PM
    There was no rust, nary a post-holiday letdown for the Rolling Meadows boys swim team Friday afternoon. The Mustangs, on the road after the Mid-Suburban League winter break, defeated host Hoffman Estates 99-67 to improve 3-1 in dual meets this season. Sure, the main headline-makers were at top form, like senior Jake Barson, who won the 200-meter individual medley (2:21.26) and the 100 breaststroke (1:09.03). Freshman Jake Dellorto did likewise in the 200 freestyle (2:04.65) and 400 freestyle (4:30.72). The pair also helped the Mustangs end the meet with a bang by winning the 400 free relay with teammates David Myers and Filip Pancerz, in 3:52.19. But Meadows showed its depth with strong efforts from its third swimmers, allowing it to take the top three places in six events, and finish 1-2-3 in two of them.

  • Rolling Meadows tops Prospect in OT Jan 9, 2015 10:51 PM
    What a difference a half a season makes. At least that’s what Rolling Meadows coach Kevin Katovich thinks. Katovich had just seen his Mustangs give up an 8-point lead with 1:34 left in the game against visiting Prospect, as the Knights closed out regulation with a 9-1 run to force a 50-all tie. Prospect then scored the first 4 points in the overtime to lead 54-50. Rolling Meadows came back strong in the extra period to edge Prospect 58-56 in the Mid-Suburban East matchup.

  • Preissing, Prospect press past Rolling Meadows Jan 9, 2015 10:44 PM
    Alex Preissing helped Prospect get off to a flying start before teammates Tanner Strobel and Matt and Adrian Wroblewski provided the knock-out punch to send the host Knights to a convincing 43-18 wrestling victory over Rolling Meadows on Friday night at the Jean Walker Field House. Preissing (120 pounds) gave the big crowd plenty to cheer when he recorded a fall at 3:36 to cap an impressive performance in the opening bout of this Mid-Suburban East showdown. After hard-fought victories from Chris Rivera, Alex Straczak, Frank Mazur and Stu Isteffanos helped the hosts build a comfortable 18-0 advantage, the aforementioned middle of the Knights’ lineup went to work. And it sure made a big splash, with one fall and a pair of technical falls.

  • Spiwak sparks Rolling Meadows past Hoffman Estates Jan 8, 2015 11:42 PM
    In her first year on the varsity, sophomore Kyra Spiwak has been put in one of the most important positions on the floor for the Rolling Meadows girls basketball team. “As a sophomore point guard, there’s a balance you look for,” said Mustangs coach Ryan Kirkorsky. “It’s knowing when to call your own number (going to the basket) or getting us into something else. She is getting better at that.” Spiwak sure was better than anyone at scoring points on Thursday night. She drove for a career-high 21 as the Mustangs got past host Hoffman Estates 56-43 in the Mid-Suburban League crossover.

  • Rolling Meadows, Prospect take their best shot at unity Jan 7, 2015 7:04 PM
    The Rolling Meadows and Prospect boys swimming teams expect to battle it out for real in a key Mid-Suburban East meet on Jan. 23. But out of mutual respect, general competitiveness and a willingness to play hard away from the pool, the Mustangs and Knights staged a warm-up of sorts last Saturday. Athletes and coaches from both programs met for pizza, then headed over to Southpoint Mall in Arlington Heights for several spirited rounds of laser tag. The idea originated with Rolling Meadows coach Monika Chiappetta, who’s been impressed with the good sportsmanship and general good behavior from both her own team and Prospect. Many of the swimmers know one another from competing on the same club teams.

    Past Rolling Meadows players who helped steer the Mustangs girls basketball into one of the top programs in the area were in the stands for Monday’s nonconference game against visiting McHenry. They got to see first hand that the current players are doing a fine job of sustaining the success.

  • Girls basketball / Northwest roundup Dec 28, 2014 12:03 AM

  • Bahlmann connection helps Vernon Hills top Rolling Meadows Dec 26, 2014 11:46 PM
    There were all kinds of girl-friendly goodies to unwrap at the Bahlmann house on Christmas Day. “We got a lot of clothes and jewelry,” middle sister Monica said on behalf of older sister Brie and younger sister Becky. The three Bahlmann sisters themselves have been gifts that keep giving to the Vernon Hills girls basketball team. Brie, now a sophomore in college, helped the Cougars advance downstate in back-to-back seasons, 2011-12 and 2012-13. Monica, now a senior, was a sophomore on the second downstate team. On Friday at the Mundelein holiday tournament, Monica and Becky, a sophomore, helped put a big red bow on a 50-28 victory over a Rolling Meadows team that might be young and rebuilding, but is also still reputable after coming off of back-to-back trips downstate of its own.

  • Rolling Meadows gives St. Ignatius a battle Dec 26, 2014 8:43 PM
    Not too many people were giving Rolling Meadows much of a chance to defeat St. Ignatius at the Jack Tosh 41st annual Holiday Tournament in Elmhurst Monday afternoon. But Rolling Meadows (4-6) gave the Catholic League entry all it could handle before succumbing in the final minute. When the final buzzer sounded the Wolfpack edged the Mustangs 55-53.

  • Rolling Meadows goes to extremes, tops Mundelein Dec 23, 2014 11:27 PM
    There’s not much middle ground with the Rolling Meadows girls basketball team. Shooting-wise, it’s either one extreme, or the other. “Program-wide, we tell our kids that we want to shoot threes and layups, that’s it. We’re not much of a mid-range team,” Rolling Meadows coach Ryan Kirkorsky said. “That’s our philosophy. And I like that style.” Kirkorsky saw plenty that he liked on Tuesday night at the Mundelein Mustang Holiday Classic. His team drained 10 three-pointers to out-shoot an almost equally-hot Mundelein team from long range. A 58-43 victory moved Rolling Meadows to 10-3 on the season.

  • 15-year-old dies in Mt. Prospect home Dec 22, 2014 4:20 PM

  • Fremd wins divisional title in Arizona Dec 23, 2014 12:12 AM

  • Cagers of all ages have fun at Mustang tourney Dec 21, 2014 4:52 PM
    Students may be on break, but there is no hiatus from hoops - at least not for the basketball junkies at Rolling Meadows High School on Sunday. The Mustang 3-on-3 Shootout Basketball Tournament, in its 20th year, is stronger than ever. Forty-eight teams made up this year's field, up from 37 last year.

  • Repeat Leyden title for Rolling Meadows Dec 20, 2014 9:04 PM
    Rolling Meadows repeated as champion of the boys swimming invitational at Leyden, topping West Chicago and the host Eagles for the title on Saturday. Jake Barson won the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:01.21, Filip Pancerz won the 100 back in 59.49, Kuba Debkowski won the 50 free in 23.22 and Josh Dellorto won twice, taking both the 200 free (1:48.68) and 500 free (4:59.87). The 500 effort from Dellorto lowered his own team record. With victories in all three relays, the Mustangs finished with 311 points, while West Chicago finished at 260 and Leyden at 206.

  • Hersey picks up the pace Dec 19, 2014 11:40 PM
    If Hersey’s bounce-back performance against Rolling Meadows Friday is an indication of the team’s direction, then the Huskies are ahead of schedule. “Usually, we fall flat at Pekin and then get it together the rest of the season,” Hersey coach Steve Messer said after his team’s 75-64 Mid-Suburban East boys basketball victory in Ken Carter Gym. “We fell flat against Fremd and got it together tonight, so maybe we’re ahead of the curve.” There’s no doubt that this was the Huskies best offensive performance of the season, topping their previous high of 70 against Robeson and prepping the team for the Pekin tournament after Christmas.
