  • Batavia breaks away from St. Charles East in 3rd quarter Sep 20, 2014 12:57 AM
    Trailing only 12-7 at the half against a powerful Batavia team, the St. Charles East football team looked like it wanted to add its own spin to the Saints’ homecoming theme of “Enchanted East.” But Batavia had all of the magic in the second half of the Upstate Eight River clash Friday night, piling up 21 third-quarter points on the way to a 40-7 victory, the Bulldogs’ 21st straight in conference action.

  • Iowa rallies, knocks off unbeaten Pitt 24-20 Sep 20, 2014 6:25 PM
    Kirk Ferentz is learning to embrace his inner riverboat gambler. And with good reason. At the moment, the Iowa coach is on a roll. For 30 methodically brilliant minutes against unbeaten Pittsburgh on Saturday, so was his team. Mark Weisman ran for 88 yards and two touchdowns, including a 1-yard plunge with 6:56 remaining to lift the Hawkeyes to a 24-20 victory. The senior running back’s 20th career score came at the end of a 13-play drive in which Ferentz opted to go for it twice on fourth down rather than attempt a short field goal that would have tied the game. “He has confidence in us,” Weisman said. “So it’s our job to get it done some way, somehow.”

  • Key Coghlan homer rallies Cubs past Dodgers Sep 20, 2014 3:54 PM
    For the second straight day, the Cubs didn't get much from their starting pitcher, but Chris Coghlan's big day at the plate bailed them out. Coghlan's second homer of the game, a 2-run drive in the eighth inning, helped rally the Cubs past the Dodgers at Wrigley Field.

  • Baez battling through rough start to career Sep 20, 2014 8:44 PM
    The Cubs have been steadfast in playing rookie shortstop-second baseman Javier Baez since his call-up from the minor leagues last month. Baez has prodigious power, but he also has a high strikeout rate. The Cubs say the experience he's getting will pay off in the long run.

  • Glenbard West takes title on new Kaneland course Sep 20, 2014 5:56 PM
    Glenbard West won the title Saturday at Kaneland’s annual Larry Eddington Invitational, a championship that might not have happened without a couple friendly Kaneland officials. Kaneland moved the meet from its traditional home at Elburn Woods to the Knights’ high school campus. The Knights are hosting a Class 2A sectional this fall and wanted to test out their course.

But when all was said and done, Wheeling had pulled off an exciting 56-59 victory over heartbroken Warren as the Wildcats continued so show great signs of improvement and growth in the early stages of the new season.

  • Higuchi’s record effort powers Fremd at Warren Sep 20, 2014 6:01 PM
    As the old saying goes, “it’s the little things that count.” That details-first approach to practice and meets has really helped the Fremd girls cross country team, and the determined Vikings ran to the championship of the 17-team Warren Invitational Saturday morning by a solid 63-88 count to top the host Blue Devils. Not only was Saturday a great day for Fremd as a team, but Ayako Higuchi set a record on the 2.95-mile course on the grounds of the high school with a winning time of 17:12.16.
