  • St. Charles East knocks down KanelandMay 10, 2014 12:00 AM
    It’s been a while since Chumbawamba hit the charts with “Tubthumping” — which featured the repeating lyrics “I get knocked down; but I get up again; you’re never gonna keep me down.” Without resorting to music, that’s essentially what St. Charles East girls soccer coach told his team before they took the Norris Stadium field to play Kaneland in a nonconference match on Saturday. He reminded his team of their 3-1 Friday night loss to Geneva, told them that good teams respond in adversity — and then demanded a response from his Saints.

    St. Charles East sophomore Keely Flanigan summed up the Saints’ winning approach to Thursday’s Upstate Eight Conference girls track meet at Geneva, the last primer before next week’s all-important sectional meets. “Our goal was just to do the best we can and improve ourselves,” said Flanigan, who ran the second leg of St. Charles East’s winning 1,600-meter relay. “And if we happen to win, that’s good, too.” It went pretty good for the Saints, who happened to win it all, as it turned out. In a meet that decided an overall champion as well as River and Valley Division champions, St. Charles East was the clear-cut winner. The Saints amassed 142 team points to run away with the overall and River Division titles.

The runner should have stopped — the play should have stopped. That’s how kids get hurt."
