Harper College team scores big at NASA rocket competition May 23, 2013 12:00 AM
Their rocket crashed during a test run, but a Harper College-based team of science and engineering students took fourth place in a national NASA rocketry competition, besting big names like MIT and Northwestern. "To be mentioned in the same sentence as such prestigious schools is really awesome," said student Eric Meyers.
ECC graduates offer advice to high school grads May 23, 2013 12:00 AM
Few would argue that earning a college degree is a smart choice. But what are the advantages of attending a community college before moving on to a four-year university? How can community college students get the full college experience while still living at home? Several recent Elgin Community College graduates shared their stories with the Daily Herald — and offered some advice to high school graduates heading to college themselves this fall.

Buffalo Grove tops Stevenson, makes sectional May 22, 2013 12:00 AM
Eighth-seeded Buffalo Grove rose to the task at hand in Wednesday's Highland Park regional final — and quite a task it was. The Bison were facing Stevenson, the top seed in the 23-team Antioch sectional. Behind a dominant hitting effort from senior Evan Bunnetto, the Bison more than met the challenge. Bunnetto racked up 18 kills to go with 4 blocks and 7 digs as Buffalo Grove won 25-19, 25-23.

A happy (Cary-Grove) homecoming for Barrington’s Wire May 22, 2013 12:00 AM
Not very often does it come full circle for coaches like it did for Barrington baseball coach Pat Wire Wednesday afternoon. When rains forced the Class 4A Jacobs regional semifinal between No. 1 seed Cary-Grove and No. 4 Barrington to Cary-Grove's field, it set up an unprecedented scenario for the 1996 Cary-Grove graduate to beat his alma mater on a field he did pretty well on himself at one time. "He played outstanding on this field. I'm glad he's coaching and not playing. I mean, I wish he was playing for us," Trojans coach Don Sutherland said. "Pat had some great games here. He pitched for us, played short, played center, those are all the spots where you put your best players so he's won a lot of games here." Now Wire can say he's won a game at Cary-Grove as a coach. The Broncos (22-11) jumped out to a 4-run lead after two innings, only to watch it disappear and regain it with 2 runs in the fifth in a 6-5 upset of Cary-Grove, doing things Wire has preached to his team all season, something he learned from Sutherland: manufacture runs and play small ball. And the Broncos kept battling this time, something they did not do in the Mid-Suburban League championship game last Friday, a loss to Rolling Meadows.

Claussen, Vernon Hills having fun winning May 22, 2013 12:00 AM
When she went to bat with the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning, the last thing on Jenn Claussen’s mind was hitting a you-know-what. “I had no intention of doing that,” said the Cougars senior pitcher. “I just didn’t want to strike out. I just wanted to get on base.” But you know what? She cleared the bases. Claussen’s grand slam over the right-center field fence all but sealed the Cougars’ 7-0 victory over St. Viator in the semifinal of Lions’ own Class 3A regional in Arlington Heights. The No. 4-seeded Cougars (9-15) advance to Saturday’s 10 a.m. championship of today’s semifinal between No. 2 St. Edward and No. 3 Regina.

Deerfield drops St. Viator in OT May 21, 2013 12:00 AM
The St. Viator girls soccer team’s bid for another sectional final appearance was there for the taking on Tuesday night. The Lions scored three times in the second half and held a 2-goal advantage. But top-seeded Deerfield recovered to tie it in regulation and force overtime, where the Warriors scored again to beat fourth-seeded St. Viator 4-3 in a Class 2A Lakes sectional semifinal in Lake Villa.
Buffalo Grove win long two-setter at Highland Park May 21, 2013 12:00 AM
Seniors step forward for St. Viator May 21, 2013 12:00 AM
Niles North was on a roll. The Vikings had just rallied to stun St. Viator in the second game of Tuesday’s boys volleball regional semifinal at Loyola to tie the match and send it into a third and deciding set. And while the energized Vikes sprinted out of their huddle early and onto the court ready for game three, the Lions and coach Chris Boylan stood on the sidelines, calmly talking things over. “We were still confident,” said St. Viator senior libero Anthony Giovenco. “We kind of lost our intensity in the second game but we knew we couldn’t let up.” “The guys relaxed a little after set one,” agreed Boylan. “But in the third set our seniors took over.” Led by Giovenco, who Boylan said gave a “virtually flawless” performance, the Lions controlled the final game in a 25-15, 18-25, 25-12 victory.
