  • Time runs out on Lakes against St. Patrick Mar 13, 2015 11:20 PM
    Benett Haviland got to play one final high school basketball game after all, even if it was just 22 uneventful seconds to start the Class 3A Vernon Hills sectional final. The hobbled Haviland left the game with a sheepish smile and no worse for the wear, thankfully, as Lakes’ fans applauded to show their appreciation for the senior. “It kind of worked out,” said Eagles coach Chris Snyder, who accidentally penciled down Haviland, who wasn’t going to play due to an ankle injury, as a starter for Friday night’s game against St. Patrick. “He actually got a chance to get that last piece of recognition from the fans.” By game’s end, Lakes’ fans saluted all of their players one final time. The Eagles missed 10 free throws and the kind of perimeter shooting that Haviland can deliver, St. Patrick’s own sharpshooter, Nicolas Coleman, poured in a game-high 17 points, and the third-seeded Shamrocks won 48-33. While No. 5 Lakes (18-14) saw its season end with just its fifth loss in its last 18 games, St. Patrick (22-8) earned a berth in Tuesday’s 7 p.m. Hoffman Estates supersectional against St. Joseph.

  • Moore helps St. Patrick down DePaul Prep Mar 10, 2015 10:54 PM
    St. Patrick and DePaul Prep brought their neighborhood rivalry from Chicago to Vernon Hills on Tuesday night in Class 3A boys basketball.

St. Patrick, the No. 3 seed, will take on No. 6 Lakes on Friday night at Vernon Hills at 7 p.m.; the Eagles were an upset winner over the top-seeded Cougars. Moore, a 6-foot-3 senior swing man, powered for 31 points on 11-of-14 shooting from the field and 5 of 8 from the free throw line against the second-seeded Rams.

  • Revved-up St. Viator handles St. Patrick Feb 20, 2015 10:18 PM
    Like an older car, St. Viator’s basketball team took a little while to get warmed up Friday night at Cahill gymnasium on senior night. Once the Lions started rolling, though, there was no stopping them in a 46-34 East Suburban Catholic Conference win over St. Patrick. With one conference game to go at Marist on Wednesday, St. Viator broke its three-game losing streak and now sports a 15-9, 6-2 record.

  • Carmel can’t catch up to quick-starting St. Patrick Feb 6, 2015 11:06 PM
    In the week leading up to Friday night’s East Suburban Catholic Conference matchup with visiting St. Patrick, Carmel boys basketball coach Zack Ryan emphasized the importance of a good start. The Shamrocks, however, had a similar game plan. And during the long rush-hour bus ride, senior Nicolas Coleman and his Shamrocks teammates had plenty of time to think about it. “Last year we had trouble starting fast,” Coleman said. “It’s something we have really focused on this year — getting started fast.” St. Patrick did start fast, much to the dismay of Ryan and the Corsairs. The Shamrocks jumped on Carmel 19-4 in the first quarter and stayed in control the whole way in an impressive 67-42 win in Mundelein on Friday night.

  • St. Viator takes charge against St. Patrick Oct 18, 2014 7:20 PM
    St. Viator senior quarterback Tyler Johnston is one of the top quarterbacks in the East Suburban Catholic Conference, but he sometimes gets overlooked. Not, however, by his own teammates. “The other players love it when Johnston is in the game, because he can do so much with the ball,” said Lions coach Brandon New. “He’s all about team, and it gets the rest of them going. They feed off of his energy. He has a quarterback moxie, which is something you can’t teach.” Johnston came up with another fine performance in leading St. Viator to a 42-14 victory over St. Patrick at Hanson Stadium in Chicago on Saturday afternoon. Johnston completed 16 of 24 passes with 2 interceptions for 240 yards and 2 touchdown passes. That puts him at 2,202 yards and 15 touchdown passes for the season.

  • Turner helps Carmel hang on against St. Pat Sep 27, 2014 12:03 AM
    Usually, wins do not come easy in the East Suburban Catholic Conference. Just ask Carmel Catholic coach Andy Bitto. “I’m just a wreck,” said Bitto after watching his Corsairs hang on to a 28-20 win Friday night over visiting St. Patrick. “The last several years these game have come down to the end. We dodged a few bullets tonight. This one could have gone either way.”

  • Conant's McCormack gets win No. 500 Feb 1, 2014 8:51 PM
    Conant boys basketball coach Tom McCormack posted his 500th career coaching win with the Cougars' 45-20 over St. Patrick in nonconference play in Hoffman Estates on Saturday night. “I tried not to think of it too much,” said McCormack. “There's a lot of people to thank. We've had a lot of good players who have come through here. Very important is my family and my wife. Without their support, it would have been hard to go this long. I am also thankful to athletic director Don Crandall, who gave me a chance to coach here in the 1985-86 season.”

  • St. Patrick edges St. Charles North Dec 9, 2013 3:37 PM
    St. Charles North boys basketball coach Tom Poulin could have used the excuse that the North Stars were playing their third game in four days, but he would have none of it. “These are strong kids, “ said Poulin. “ I don’t think fatigue was a factor.” After coming off an emotional win over rival St. Charles East Saturday night, the North Stars traveled to Norridge to take on St. Patrick from Chicago in the Ridgewood High School Shootout Sunday. The Shamrocks cashed in at the free throw line, hitting 23 of 29 including 13 of 16 in the fourth quarter, to eek out a 66-62 win.

  • Smith, Schaumburg steadily pull away Nov 9, 2013 7:22 PM
    When you have a quarterback like Stacey Smith, there is never a need to panic. Steady was the course for Schaumburg as it faced St. Patrick at Chicago’s Hanson Stadium in the second round of the Class 7A football playoffs on Saturday afternooon. The second-seeded Saxons found themselves trailing the host Shamrocks 10-0 in the second quarter when things began to change. St. Patrick had been consuming much of the clock for the first quarter and a half. But when the Shamrocks were forced to punt from the 50 and Schaumburg took over at its own 13, Smith and company calmly went to work. The Saxons drove 87 yards in 10 plays and scored on the first of 5 touchdowns by Smith in a 42-24 victory over St. Patrick.
