  • Peez lifts Batavia with pressure free throws Nov 28, 2014 11:51 PM
    Sitting on the bench following a St. Francis timeout, Batavia’s Chasen Peez had one thing on his mind — well, actually two. “Make these free throws, make these free throws, make these free throws,” said Peez. The 6-foot-7 senior center did just that, sinking both foul shots with 14.5 seconds remaining to give his team a 56-55 lead. When the Spartans’ Jason Sullivan misfired on a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer, the Bulldogs (3-0) erupted in celebration after their 1-point victory in Friday’s fourth day of the 39th annual Ken Peddy Windmill City Classic in Batavia.

  • Sweet finish favors St. Francis at Lakes Nov 8, 2014 10:38 PM
    It’s not to say that St. Francis senior quarterback Clint Bobowski was happy to see his team down 10 with 6:03 remaining in a Class 6A second round contest at Lakes, but the seemingly always positive Bobowski had a different spin on the situation. “The way we looked at it was, the greater the deficit, the sweeter the comeback,” he said. The comeback for the Spartans was sweet — even sweeter for Bobowski. With No. 6 St. Francis trailing third-seeded Lakes 36-26, Bobowski, who had twice come out of the game after partially dislocating his left shoulder, engineered a pair of scoring drives to rally the visiting Spartans to a 39-36 victory Saturday.

  • St. Francis stops Wauconda’s postseason journey Nov 6, 2014 9:49 PM
    The magical ride for Wauconda’s girls volleyball team ended on Thursday night, but the girls on this team wore smiles after their match with powerhouse St. Francis. “I think we are holding back,’’ said Wauconda middle hitter, Sara Sexton. “This is the furthest we’ve gone in 10 years.” Indeed. This Bulldogs team wasn’t even supposed to beat Prairie Division power Lakes. And Wauconda clearly wasn’t likely to knock off 30-game winner Wheaton Academy in the Class 3A sectional opener at Vernon Hills. Yet this Bulldogs team kept on winning. “We found our way,’’ Sexton said. “We got along and played together.” The end of the season came at the hands of 35-4 St. Francis as Wauconda fell 25-14, 25-12. The Spartans advance to a Class 3A supersectional date against Marian Central at 1 p.m. Saturday at Belvidere High School.
