    Prospect’s Reese strikes again downstateMay 24, 2014 12:00 AM
    Prospect senior Erin Reese proved that lightning does strike twice. After hitting a school-record 150 feet in the discus in early April, Reese settled back into the mid-130s for rest of the season. But on a sun-splashed Saturday at the IHSA Class 3A state finals at Eastern Illinois’ O’Brien Stadium, Reese caught lightning in a bottle for the second time. On her second throw in the finals, Reese unleashed a beauty, hitting 146-01 to propel her to the Class 3A discus title.

  • Bright finishes for Brey; Grayslake C. takes team titleMay 23, 2014 12:00 AM
    Somehow after running 3 miles, and doing so fast enough to qualify for the boys track and field state meet, St. Viator senior Nick Brey still had enough energy to jump in the air and chest-bump his teammates. “For some reason, after any race I have the energy somewhere to do that,” the Marquette-bound Brey said. “It started at conference last week with one of our sophomores, but I just wanted to keep it up.” Brey came up with a pair of second-place finishes at the Class 2A Grayslake Central sectional Friday night, but both were under the state cut and qualified Brey for a pair of events at state for the first time. His 4:28.96 in the 1,600 broke the school record set by Tim Phillips in 1979. Brey’s 9:33.07 clocking was not quite a school mark, but was plenty good for a state-qualifying berth.

And Alyssa Garcia sent them all home happy by delivering the game-winning walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning for a 7-6 nonconference victory.

  • St. Viator’s Samantha Hogan is greeted at the plate by her teammates after hitting a 3-run home run against Rolling Meadows during Tuesday’s game.

    Hard-hitting Hogan sets tone for St. ViatorMay 13, 2014 12:00 AM
    Sam Hogan hit a ball off the fence for the 11th time on Tuesday and it resulted in her 16th double of the season. “I’m known as the ‘almost-home run king,’ ” she said with laugh. But not to worry. She can hit them over it, too. In fact, she did it in a Sacred Heart retro uniform on Saturday, then came back to do it again in the Lions’ regular jersey on Tuesday against Rolling Meadows, the school which was directly across the street from Sacred Heart when it closed in 1987. Hogan’s blast over the center field fence gave the host Lions a 12-0 lead in the top of the third inning and they finished with a 14-1 five-inning triumph.
